Satay is absolutely a good option when you want great food. Here in KL, their skewered pork, chicken or beef are well-seasoned with turmeric powder and comes with a sweet and spicy peanut sauce that makes it more palatable.

What to expect from a no-frills food such as this? Just some succulent, chunky meat with a sweet-salty flavor that can be eaten on its own or with mounds of rice. It is a filling snack or a great viand that you can easily get anywhere in Kuala Lumpur.
