Let’s start the new year with my first food post. I’m sorry for the lack of updates; been busy lately with my relocation, Christmas dinners, New Year eve celebration and Internet issue. I’m now officially moved to Damansara from Cheras (but I’m still working in Cheras…), which is very near to WMW’s place! Henceforth, you will see more posts on PJ and its surrounding area in the future.
2008’s Christmas can be said as one of the best for me, so far. Same as the year before, we made our annual pilgrimage to Melaka on the 27th Dec. We invaded Paul’s house for a feast with his family members and his friends and his family’s friends. I was plain lazy to take pictures of all the food but there were tom yam spaghetti, lamb chops, nasi kerabu, tuna sandwich, steamed yam cake, red wine chicken, pork knuckle, gorgeous cupcakes from Audrey and so on. Seriously, the cupcakes were really good. If you’re interested to ask her to bake you some, you can contact her here.
We stayed overnight in Melaka and when the sun rises (that’s almost noon actually), we packed our stuff and ready for some food hunt before crawling our way back to KL. Thanks to Internet, we made our first stop here:
Based on SC‘s experience, we braved the traffic in three cars to Ming Sate Hut, located at the shoplots next to Mahkota Parade for the non halal pork satay. Very simple interior and furniture. They provide long tables which can sit 6 people at one time with wooden stools. The grilling stove is placed at the entrance of the shop, so one can spot the place easily.
The peanut sauce served here is different from the usual ones. Not so coarse and slightly sour sweet, we found that they added plenty of shredded pineapples into the sauce. Dip the skewer into the sauce and “scoop”, you’ll found strands of finely shredded pineapple on it. Each person get their own bowl of sauce, so no need to worry about hygiene issue. You can refill your sauce with the container available on every table.
Priced at RM 0.55 per stick, the pork satay is smaller in size but extremely juicy and tender, much better than the one in Ipoh. The four of us who shared one table; Alex, Jason, Alvin and me, ended up ordering 40 sticks of the pork satay and 20 sticks of the chicken version.
And yes, if pork is not your cup of tea, they also have chicken, liver, intestines and mutton too, all RM0.55 per stick. It’s not halal though, as they’re being grilled on the same grilling stove as the pork satay. The chicken version is lighter in colour, but nonetheless, still lipsmackingly delicious with the pineapple peanut sauce.
We left the place and decided to go for dessert (which will be in part 2)… anyone can guess what type of dessert?
