Grilled meat on bamboo skewers served with fresh cucumber and raw onion pieces, with a spicy peanut dipping sauce is the Malaysian version of satay.
Mention satay and Kajang comes to mind. Indeed, it is the undisputed satay capital of the country.
Along the intersection of Jalan Cheras and Lorong Mendaling in Kajang town are satay outlets such as the headquarters of Restoran Sate Kajang Hj Samuri, one of the most well-known satay outlets in town. About five minutes away is Medan Sate Kajang where another branch of the restaurant operates.
Sate Hj Samuri, Satay Yus Kajang and Satay Putera Kajang are said to be among the pioneers of the satay restaurant business in Kajang which have made satay synonymous with the town.
Sate Hj Samuri founder Datuk Samuri Juraimi inherited the satay shop business from his uncle in 1992 and went on to establish his own brand. Today, there are more than 20 outlets around Malaysia.
