Thanks to my friend Gary for drawing the attention of this Golden Potato at Kuchai Lama to me. We just had finished my favourite mala hotpot place for dinner and we were super full. He and his gf said that you die die must try this. Damm good. Both of them then went off to tapau where the truck is parking right in front of Family Mart Kuchai Lama.

Golden Potato (4)

Came back with 1 pack that it was so good. We walk towards the food truck to make another 2 pack for take away.

kuchai lama

Surprise to see that the Golden Potato truck is park at the central location of Kuchai where it is the most jam of all. Then get to see that their Potato ball is done fresh. Roll on the spot, fried on the spot. This is one of a common street snacks where you get to find in certain morning or night market.

sweet potato

it is definitely tricky and not easy to do. To get it raise to an airy ball, it needs the right ingredients and lot of energy to squeeze up the balls.

Golden Potato (7)

It is best advise to eat on the spot. as Potato ball is not easy to last long where the air bubble of the ball will slowly go soft and will become a flat kuih after that.

Golden Potato (6)

Here you go on a prefect ball of Golden potato ball. It is not cheap though as a pack of 8 balls for RM 5. Once a while okay la cuz it is so good.Fragrant with slight crust. Then chewy texture after 2 bite that gives you a nice goie bite. A perfect snacks for anytime.

This truck is park right at the heart of Kuchai Lama in front of Family Mart. Just realize that they have a few food truck and the recent hype is at Kota Damansara Right in front of burger King where you will see a bee line of people queing.

Now they do have Granola and Oatmeal cereal.   A nutrient-packed combination of rolled oats, honey and canola oil that is baked until crisp, then toasted until golden brown. It uses only real fruits and nuts, plus some delicious berries yogurt bites.

Christmas is just around the corner and all of us are excited to have friends gathering. This was during mid of this year when I visited this outlet Shakariki 432 Sake Dining at Desa Sri Hartamas, KL. This outlet had been in my list for quite a while.

SHAKARIKI 432 SAKE DINING (3)

A place that offer nearly all selections like Sushi, Yakitori, Oden and sets.

SHAKARIKI 432 SAKE DINING (9)

A simple Japanese, Yakitori place and of course their happy hour is da bomb! Will definitely drop by again but I am not too sure as this menu was during July 2020. RM 12 for Sapporo beer is very good deal.

There are certain area famous for certain food. When comes to Kajang, what do you all think off? For me its Satay. Satay Kajang seems to be one of the most famous street food that most of us can associated to. I am sure there are plenty of Satay Kajang out there and there is this particular stall when @broughtup2share told me I must visit! Willy Satay is one of their favourite satay stall.

willy satay

True enough, I must agree with them that, for the first time in my life, I have seen a sate business which is soo good that it needs 5 bbq pit. Fully operating yet there are not many customer in the food court. Apparently, they are famous for both tapau and dine in. The only other 5 pit I am seeing is this famous roti canai at Klang, which also running with 5 roti canai pit  – restaurant IV at Klang

What I have read that they have been in sate business 12 years ago at only a small road side stall. Over the years they have gain huge loyal customer to be where they are today.

willy satay kajang (5)

One of the famous Malaysian street food yet you have to go all the way to Kajang. These are the famous charcoal satay in Kajang. I am sure that every satay seller do have their own special marination or recipe in place.

willy satay kajang (4)

willy satay kajang (10)

But theirs, is another level. The marination and the kind of spice mixture that makes the aroma of the sata so fragrant and flavorful is a whole new level.

willy satay kajang (9)

After burning in the bbq pit. the meat is crystalize glaze yet look juicy inside out.

willy satay kajang (12)

The meat here is slightly chunkier compare to the ones I had previously. My usual order to test a stall out are:

  1. 5 x chicken
  2. 5 x beef
  3. 5 x chicken

Satay sauce or peanut sauce here is slightly diluted but do have its own taste. I believe that the satay itself is already punch with flavour that you need not mix with the peanut sauce.

willy satay kajang (11)

All the satay sticks are flavourful by its own. A good combination yet the only thing to highlight is that if you are taking the lamb, it is slightly tough on meat and gamey in taste. Those of you do not like lamb taste, this might turn you off. However, eaters like me, must have the gamey taste and we enjoy it.

best satay in kl (2)

To mark this place is quite easy. You see the place punch out the most smoke, then you know you are nearby the stall. I am sure there are alot other great satay stalls in Kajang. Could Willy satay be one of the best Satay in Kajang or best satay in KL? Why not you guys share with me where is your favourite satay in Kajang?

I have tried a few satay in Kajang like :

  1. HJ Samuri (I have tried before the Kajang branch)

They do have delivery too. Just give them a call.

During pandemic like this, and there are shops like this open, I am certainly impress with their courage. It was a random walk in as were hunting food in Sri Petaling and found this new shop that just open with their special price. Eat all you can charcoal bbq buffet at RM 29.90 and with drinks is RM 34.90 as their opening special and was a too good bargain in this Meet-ing Point at Sri Petaling. What can you expect. Support new businesses , support Lokal.

meet-ing point (1)

bukit jalil

When we first stumble upon them, they were just 2 days old . Variety of meat that they offer is pretty decent and just a challenge on how you plan to fill up your stomach! Fresh meat that is prep on that day is ready to serve to you to the table. Pick your selection and get it ready to grill. Pork Belly, pork patty & curry beef was our favourite for the night.

With their special bbq pit, it is not as smokey as what we perceive. Could be also only 5 tables were on that day.

meet-ing point (8)

We were happy with the meat selection and marination werent the best but acceptable for the price we are paying.

meet-ing point (9)

We tried out some of their snacks too.

variety of sauce were offered as they are still on R&D stages.

eat all you can buffet

the owner is pretty open as they ask about our opinion about their food and we gave them feedback accordingly. Of course they are more than happy to listen to most of us and looking forward to further improve their marination base on neighborhood feedback.

meet-ing point

Be kind to business owners, as it is not easy to spend money and run a business in this pandemic. Instead of criticize, why not give them a straight feedback where the owner can improve and we can come back an enjoy again. For the price we are paying with eat all you can bbq in KL, I have no complain at all. Just gave them some feedback what should be add on and also what could be further improve. For 2 days in operation, I certainly hope that they can thrive long for their business.
