Restoran Sate R&K, SerembanThis is my favorite place to go to for Satay in Seremban.
So how do you define a good stick of satay? For me, I prefer satay which are lean, marinated well and not overcooked. I cannot stand satay which have bits of fat on it, gives me the shivers just biting into it and definitely not charcoal black meat (some places overdo the cooking!).
The chicken (satay ayam) and beef (satay daging) satay here is extremely good. I would say the best time to come here is around 6.00 - 6.30pm, as the satays are hot off the coal so the meat is still succulent (I feel satay gets a bit dry when it's cold). Order some of the ketupat (rice cakes) too!
Another important factor is the spicy peanut sauce. The sauce here is thick and sweet, with a hint of chilli in it. And they are not stingy with it, we usually get a few bowls of sauce to dip our satay in.
Other than the satay here, I also like the fried rice (Nasi Goreng). There is a huge variety here, but my favorites are Nasi Goreng Paprik (served with an egg and side dish of chicken cooked in paprika), Nasi Goreng USA and Nasi Goreng Kampung.
Nasi Goreng Paprik
And not to be missed, the Seafood Tom Yum. Very appetizing and quite spicy, hot and sour broth with loads of prawns, mini squid rings, chicken and oyster mushrooms. Tom Yum-my, I like!
To take the heat off, a glass of ice lemon tea would do the trick!
Price: I think the satays are priced at RM0.60 per stick. The price of fried rice ranges from RM4.00 - RM5.50. Very reasonable.
