ZHU"S SATAY - THE PORK SATAY SPECIALISTS AT SERI KEMBANGAN
There's something so quintessential about satay in Malaysia that ceases to be a cliche. My never-ending love for satay made me discovered another good place for pork satay at ZHU"S SATAY located at Seri Kembangan.

Grilling In Progress
Zhu's Satay is such a terrific find, especially for all pork satay lovers. A familiar fare yet different, these pork satay specialists give the traditional local favourites an interesting twist by serving a large menu with varieties of pork satay in many flavours to excite your taste buds.
I bet the draw of this place is definitely the pork satay with its generous chunks of meat well marinated with spices. Satay is simply meat on a skewer but what makes a good satay lies in its texture and flavour. A good satay must factor is the marinade for the meat, grilling method and the essential peanut sauce.
No Frills Setting ~ Simple & Comfortable With Spacious Dining Area
Here at Zhu's Satay, they get top marks from Auntie Lilly for their rich and flavourful peanut sauce that makes a good satay meal, along with freshly cut cucumber, onions and Nasi Impit.
The peanut sauce is important as the flavour enhancer, is also a factor in making this simple meal extraordinary. Zhu's Satay's gravy is thick and has small peanut chunks for added crunch.
The boss, Kelvin deserves a pat on the back for his effort in not just selling 'satay with peanut sauce' but for giving it his own distinctive twist by creating not one but THREE varieties of PORK SATAY for pork lovers in town.
SICHUAN Pork Satay (RM 1.60) & HAKKA Beancurd Pork Satay (RM 1.40)
Be spoilt-for-choice with their highly recommended Signature ZHU'S Pork Satay (RM 1.10), SICHUAN Pork Satay (RM 1.60) or HAKKA Beancurd Pork Satay (RM 1.40) for a refreshing change in taste! 🐷🐷🐷
Signature ZHU'S Pork Satay
RM 1.10 Per Pc
Signature ZHU'S Pork Satay ~ Hands down, this is my top pick for pork satay in Zhu's Satay. The pork satay is grilled just slightly charred, but still tender and juicy. The pork is generously marinated with Kelvin's secret recipe with 6 kinds of herbs and spices to make it aromatic and tastefully appealing!
An indication of good satay is the balanced ratio of meat to fat. Here at Zhu's Satay, the skewered meat had the right amount of fat. The pork meat is leaner than expected, but it was still juicy despite the lower fat content.
SICHUAN Pork Satay
RM 1.60 Per Pc
Instead of selling the usual pork satay, they also offered another two more exciting flavours to spoil the pork lover with SICHUAN Pork Satay and HAKKA Beancurd Pork Satay.
Those who like a spicier version should try the SICHUAN Pork Satay. The pork-licious satay was fragrant thanks to the Sichuan spices marinade. If you look close enough, you may notice the finely crushed spicy Szechuan peppercorn on the satay. It has just the right flavour, not too pungent nor spicy or too salty.
Be adventurous, if you have not tried any SICHUAN Pork Satay before, give it a try - you never know, maybe it could one of your favourites the next time!
HAKKA Beancurd Pork Satay? When I was introduced to this new flavour of satay, I had the version of Hakka Nam Yee Pork in mind... hahaha. Nevertheless, as a foodie, I'm always open to new taste and flavours when eating outside - so why not?
You can try their Chicken, Lamb and Beef Satay. All I can say is that their sauces and marination are really different from the Malay version of satay - with lemongrass, turmeric and all. For me, Zhu's Satay is one of the better non-halal satays in Klang Valley.
The lamb satay was not overcooked, although it was a little gamey. The best thing was that there were no chunks of fat on the meat. The satay had a nice bit of char on the meat and the smokiness went well with the peanut sauce.

The satay a familiar fare yet different in Zhu's Satay as they also offer a wide selection of mouth-watering dishes like Malaysian and Western favourites of Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Mee Rojak Sotong, Garlic Fried Rice, Apple Pork Chop, Burgers and even Cendol to go with satay.
Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken
Nasi Lemak lovers are highly recommended to order the Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken. For me, this is a Chinese-style of Nasi Lemak as it's served with mixed vegetable and a less spicy Rendang Chicken.
Oh yes, this is a different kind of Chicken Rendang from the authentic Malay recipe as it does not have the Kerisk or roasted shredded coconut in it to provide the smoky burnt flavour but a rather mild Chinese-style kind of rendang dish. Nevertheless, it's still very good-tasting on its own.
You get a delicious plate of fragrant coconut milk rice served with mixed vegetable, boiled egg, peanuts, ikan bilis, spicy sambal, papadom, cucumber with a good piece of Rendang Chicken.
Nasi Lemak Curry Pork with Skin
Pork Lovers fret not! Zhu's Satay has lots to offer in term of the porky dishes ~ Their Nasi Lemak Curry Pork with Skin caught my attention with the speciality of Curry Pork With Skin.
The pork Nasi Lemak contained a generous serving of fork-tender curry pork, mixed vegetable, spicy sambal, boiled egg. cucumber and papadom, as well as ikan bilis and I, found the well-marinated curry pork was rich and somewhat fragrant with lots of fresh herbs and spices.
Sinful as it may sound, I truly wish they would serve a bigger portion of the pork skin alone as it was really delicious, soaking up the curry gravy!
Garlic Fried Rice With Satay
Another latest addition to Zhu's Satay list of rice dishes is the Garlic Fried Rice With Satay. For those who must have rice for a meal, can try out the simple Chinese-style simple Fried Rice served with Satay of your choice - either the pork or chicken to your liking.
Garlic Fried Rice With Satay features rice fried with mixed vegetables with eggs and fish cake. It was just okay for me and there are rooms for improvement in taste and flavour or perhaps it was lacking in the 'Wok-Hei' I was expecting just like from those 'Tai-Chow' stalls!
Mee Rojak Sotong
For the Noodles selections, you can also try out the Mee Rojak Sotong or Mee Goreng With Satay. Oh yes, remind them to let you have more rojak sauce as the noodles will easily soak up the sauce thus makes it less appetising or too dry.
For me, both are equally delicious on its own; if you like your yellow noodles the rojak sauce and sambal squid, then it will be the perfect pick to eat the Mee Rojak Sotong.
Mee Goreng With Satay
Zhu's Satay's Mee Goreng With Satay fares pretty well in my books. Both are my favourite, so it's hard to resist such a good match with Mee Goreng and Satay! The chef did a good attempt to replicate the Mee Mamak style of cooking and it came off as a decent version and fairly acceptable to my taste.
Could be more flavourful if they add in some of the rojak sauce or sambal sauce with more onions, deep-fried soft tofu and boiled cubed potatoes to further enhanced the dish!
Every Malaysian should complete their satisfying dining experience with a cooling bowl of Cendol ~ A sweet dessert filled with condiments of sweet corns, soft red beans and delightfully smooth green cendol.
