Ask your parents where they used to go for their satay fix back in the day, and they will probably say Majid Satay in Campbell Road. Sixties satay legend Pakcik Majid – he was dubbed the "King of Satay" by his customerss! – is no more, but his recipe has been passed down to his grandson Zaini.


Zaini Satay is all the way in Ampang but is worth the drive – in fact, some people have come from as far as Seremban and even Singapore!
Okay, first of all, know that the place is nothing fancy. In fact, the stall is kind of small. But not only is the satay here tasty, Pakcik Zaini, along with his wife Kak Cun and their daughter, always serve customers with a smile.
So, here's how the satay tastes: the chicken satay is tender and sweet. The beef ones are also good and and not dry like those you'd find at some places. Kak Cun tells me that they use tenderloin.

If you're feeling more adventurous, go  for perut tembusu (small intestine) and perut babat. There are also lamb and liver ones. All satays are 70 sen per stick except for the liver and the stomach ones (RM1 and RM1.20 respectively).

Kak Cun reassures me that no Ajinomoto or seasoning goes into the satay which makes their satay stand out from the rest.
The stall opens at 6pm but preparation starts early – 8am! It takes three hours just to cook the peanut sauce alone! The peanut sauce is fried without oil, by the way. You can also order the satay for your private parties; especially popular during Raya season.
Zaini Satay @ Naan Corner opens from 6pm to midnight daily. It closes when they have a function to cater to, so ring them beforehand at            013-369 3934 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            013-369 3934      end_of_the_skype_highlighting       if you want to make sure they are there. 
Address: Jalan Kerja Ayer Lama, Ampang.
