Penang Food – Satay Ah’ Basri, Expect Satisfaction from Every Cucuk!

The slogan above was printed on the menu when we visited Ah’ Basri Satay outlet last night. That slogan had all of us ranting…what a way to attract customers. This outlet is located on Jalan Dato Ismail Hashim in Sungai Ara. It is diagonally opposite the Fisherman’s Grill.

This place has its own unique variations of satay. We had some time selecting the type of meat to have as there were many varieties to choose from. They have even horse and ostrich meat for the more adventurous to try out.

Plate of charcoal-grilled satay

The skewers of meat were grilled over charcoal fire and the smoky charred flavor of the meat was very enticing.

Hard at work to grill out the best satay!

The satay is chunkier then what one will find from the ordinary satay stall. The skewers of meat were accompanied by the thick peanut sauce with a dollop of red chili sauce and raw onions plus cucumber.

We had the following few types of meat…

  • Chicken – RM1 original
  • Beef – RM1.40 original
  • Beef Stomach – RM1.50
  • Lamb – RM1.40
  • Deer – RM1.50
  • Squid – RM2.50
  • Kangaroo – RM2.50

The taste was very authentic with the grilling done over charcoal fire. My personal best choice would be the tender lamb followed by the flavorful squid and chicken satay. The beef and the deer meat were rather tough. We also had the Nasi Himpit @ RM1 per portion.

The squid comes with a red chili sauce – slightly sourish and sweet

Besides the satay, we also savor various types of Wrap. It’s a nice change to have the meat inside the wrap. We ordered the Lamp Wrap and Beef Wrap @ RM4.80 per wrap which has a portion of the meat, together with some satay sauce, cucumber and vegetable. Great tastes all rolled in one!
