On the way back to KL from Seremban we decided to stop at the newly renovated Dengkil Rest & Relax stop along the highway for some of the famous kajang sate (or satay). Sate Kajang Hj.Samuri is quite famous as it’s expanded from one shop in Kajang to numerous branches all over Selangor.
They offer quite a few varieties of sate, from the usual chicken & beef to mutton, rabbit, fish, venison, tripe etc. We picked the chicken, beef, mutton and chicken liver. I had to make the order at the cashier’s first and pre-pay before waiting at a table to be served.
The sate did not take long to be served. Along with it, came the peanut gravy with a separate serving of sambal. We had also ordered a plate of nasi impit (compressed rice) which was of course served with its usual cucumber slices.
The way to eat the thick peanut gravy here is to add dollops of sambal into the gravy in accordance as to how hot you like your gravy. The chunky sate was tender and well-marinated so that it was flavourful and had this lingering smoky taste from the charcoal on it.
One thing I’m impressed with about Sate Kajang Hj.Samuri is how they’ve maintained their quality. So now it’s no longer necessary to venture into Kajang just for mouthwatering, lipsmacking good sate.
