I don't really like satay. Never. I dislike them, actually. I never understood the joy of eating carcinogenic, roasted (was it roasted?) animal flesh with some sweet gravy. My mom and my sister in law know this about me very well.
Somehow, I was attracted to this one place called Serai Satay Bar in Pavilion, KL. Blame it on a slow weekend at home watching Jalan - Jalan Cari Makan on TV3.
This place is supposedly a breath of fresh air for Malaysian delicacies like satay and, err, satay as they serve it in a giant cup-like container with the size of Big Gulp cups in 7 Eleven. Yes, they actually put the satay sticks with additional sticks of nasi himpit, cucumber and onion slices in those giant cups with its gravy so you can enjoy it like regular snacks while strolling around.
Well, supposedly. Try doing that in a crowded shopping mall without smacking people's faces as you struggle to detach those pesky satay from their sticks.
Anyway, it's a good idea to put it into such container, rather than serving it on plate like usual.
So that TV programme really got me wanted to try the Satay Bar. And I did, and yes it was delicious.
Hey, though I had rarely eaten satays before, I still know how to acknowledge the good ones, alright. And this one, my friends, is really good.
A day before my first examination paper started, I made a second pilgrimage there since I was craving for its satay all week long. I wasn't craving for just any satay - I wanted Serai Satay Bar's!
I must say, the satays are much bigger than those available around my and your place. Besides, they have soto and some kuihs too.
For the second time in a row, I had the C Set (6 sticks of satay of beef and chicken plus 2 sticks of nasi himpit, cucumber and onion slices) for RM9.60 with a glass of teh tarik. Really, really good.
Somehow, I just realized I didn't have any pic of me actually munching on those delish satays. Maybe I was too busy enjoying it. Ha!
