A fan of bread and pastries but not sure where’s the best place to indulge yourself? We’ve compiled 9 best halal bakeries and cake shops in KL and around!. Plus, the jelly does not contain food additives so some swear it’s the best cake in Klang Valley. The moment you try, you’ll fall in love instantly with these healthy cakes! Opening Hour: Mon: 10am – 5pm, Tue-Sun: 10am – 7pm.
There are easily thousands of satay stalls in Klang Valley. It’s impossible to try each and every one of them but here’s a list to help you get started on a satay adventure. This list is not final and will be updated and expanded periodically. All of the featured eateries are halal. Also, there are many famous satay stalls/restaurants that I have been to, but they are not included due to drop in quality recently.
Ramal Food Junction, Jalan Sungai Ramal, Kajang Tel: 017-210 7008 Business hours: 4pm to 12am Looking at the number of grills at , the long queue of customers and the amount of satay each customer orders, I wouldn’t be surprised if they could sell over 10,000 skewers everyday.
Even though the workers were grilling probably hundreds of satay at any time, the satay managed to come out mostly nicely cooked without too much burnt parts. So, quality control is definitely there. Compared to the usual road-side satay, Willy’s chicken satay has thick chunky meat mixed with a reasonable amount of chicken skin for the juicy texture.
It’s well marinated, tastes very delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the tenderness of the sweet and savory meat that had a pleasantly strong lemongrass flavor. 121, Jalan Gombak, Gombak Setia, KL Tel: 012-978 4252 / 016-692 8744 Business hours: 6pm to 11.30pm, closed on alternate Sundays is a small road side eatery that serves only satay and maybe a couple of drinks.
It feels more like a warung than a full fledged restaurant. Price-wise, they are in line with most and cheaper than some, definitely worth paying for the quality of food you’re receiving. Choices are rather limited though since they only offer chicken, beef and lamb satay. Their prices are RM0.80, RM0.90 and RM1.40 each respectively. As usual the beef satay is a notch better than the rest. It’s in fact the best beef satay I have tasted thus far – succulent, aromatic, extremely flavorful and burst with juice when you bite into it.
Terrific stuff. Medan Selera AU5, Taman Lembah Keramat, KL Business hours: 5pm to 1am (Closed on Sundays) Tel: 013-640 9895 operates from a stall in a ‘warung’ in Lembah Keramat and it’s obvious that they are the most popular one.
There have two to three grills fired at any time just to cater to the onslaught of orders, mostly from take aways. All the satay had an extraordinary deep flavor and you could certainly taste the special spices they use to marinate them. The satay sauce was deliciously sweet with an adequate hint of spiciness. We even couldn’t resist ourselves from drinking it, because it IS that good and not jelak at all! 3437 Jalan Keramat, Kuala Lumpur GPS Coordinates: N3 09.953 E101 43.403 Tel: 03-4256-9973 For a first time visitor, Dato Keramat could be confusing to navigate but thanks to my GPS device we found the restaurant with relative ease.
could be easily identified by the smoke and satay fragrance constantly oozing out of one of the wooden restaurant. Five satay grills are used here and the satays are actually grilled by stages. The satays do not stay on one grill from raw to cooked.
Instead, they are transferred to the next grill once a particular ‘doneness’ is achieved. The meat on each skewer is chunky and lean with little fat or skin, which would take at least three bites for the average person to finish one stick. Restoran Studio 5, Jalan Kolam Air Lama, Ampang Jaya, KL Business hours: 5pm to 11pm, closed once a month (usually Tuesdays) Tel: 013-669 8043 A pair of brothers-in-law run and their roles are clear cut: one does the grilling while the other takes care of the rest.
Despite the hecticness, I am pleased to say that the brothers are always cool and friendly. Prices are kept delightfully low, making them one of the most affordable satay stalls in KL currently. Chicken, beef, tripe, liver satays and ketupat are available at RM0.80 each. Jalan Dutamas Seroja, Taman Segambut SPPK, Segambut Tel: 012-644 2001 Business hours: 5pm to 12am (Closed on Saturdays) is located in Taman Segambut SPPK and their recipe has been handed down in the family for generations.
So that probably explains why their satay is a notch better than the rest. There are four types of satay available: chicken (RM0.70), beef (RM0.80), lamb (RM1) and tripe (RM0.90).
Among all, the chicken and beef are the best tasting ones for us. Both are well-marinated and do not rely solely on the satay sauce to deliver.
As for the satay sauce, I think it’s one of the best ones around. It’s rich, full of grounded peanuts and not oily, so it coats the satay easily for a mouthful of flavors. 83, Jalan Sentul, KL Tel: 019-226 3248 / 012-200 9053 / 011-2319 7988 Business hours: 4pm to 11pm daily is probably the busiest satay stall in Sentul. The stall operates in Sentul’s wet market (Pasar Sentul) at night and most customers take away because the location is not so conductive for dining in.
Prices are reasonable and worth it considering the high ratio of meat to fat content on each skewer, it was close to 70-30. The big flame is definitely fun to look at and makes the waiting less boring. Despite the high heat, the satay manage to come out decent without a lot of charred parts. Jalan 1/1a ,Taman Kepong Indah, KL GPS Coordinates: N3 13.662 E101 38.308 Business hours: Mon – Sun: 5:00pm – 12:00am Besides using the best ingredients, one of the secrets in lies in the oily baste.
You know, the tin of oil satay sellers would dip their self made lemongrass brush into? If you look carefully it does look very different from the rest, which are usually just cooking oil. The mutton satay (RM1.20) remains the best among the two other meats: chicken (RM0.70) and beef (RM1).
I would have given the chicken satay a better rating if not because some of them were so badly burnt – trimming the parts off would have done them a lot of good. Restoran O Mulia, 300-1 Jalan Tun Razak, KL Business hours: 5pm – 11.30pm (closed on Sundays) Business at is brisk and the workers are always busy grilling away to fulfill the orders that kept piling in. As you can see the flame is very strong compared to the other stalls where a slow grill method is usually employed.
Like Klasik Satay Station, HJ Senen’s satay also suffers from having a lot of burnt parts. But if you could look past that flaw, they have the potential to be great. Taste wise it was undoubtedly satisfying (provided you discard the burnt parts) and you could really feel the fleshiness of the satay here.
Between the chicken and beef, I prefer the later because it was more flavourful and the meat was surprisingly tender despite looking tough and chewy. Did I miss out anything? Do you have a recommendation for me? Drop me a comment below! Leave a comment:

If there's one thing that never gets old at Old Klang Road, it's the time-tested eats! This neighbourhood that bridges old residential areas to the city centre helms a foodie trove of its own, from suppertime porridge to streetside tai chow.
Get inspired to head out to the old but gold area for an all new experience! Located wayside from the busy road that sees city centre workers heading home, Peng Hwa makes a strategic supper spot, especially for those who pulled a late-nighter.
The small eatery embraces its rustic charm with red neon lights, a wooden signboard and a ready-to-serve plethora of Teochew-style small plates with porridge.
Here's a classic venue to get cosy with your favourite colleague. With a bowl (or two) of their warm, runny Porridge (RM1), order the Braised Peanuts (RM3). Typically served at Chinese restaurants as a tidbit, the instinctively simple, melt-in-your-mouth peanuts are perfect with plain porridge. The soft yet crunchy slices of Braised Intestines (RM4) make it a must-order for all fans of offal. Don't forget your greens — go for the deeply flavoured Mui Choy (preserved mustard greens, RM2) or zesty Cha Choy (pickled vegetables, RM2)!
If supper has space for one more dish to share, make it the Chinese Sausage (RM3.50). These greasy morsels supply an umami hit to the meal. Pro tip: Ask for a bowl of their tasty soy-based braising liquid, it’s perfect for spooning over your porridge. Avg price per person: RM15 Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Alyssia Yu • 4 Likes • • To call Pu Yuan a hidden gem would be an understatement.
This covert location, tucked in an inconspicuous alley off Old Klang Road, gets its reputation from serving traditional true-blue Hokkien dishes. Spot a white door along the alley facing SJK (C) Choong Wen to find your way here.
Take the family out for an excursion and try the Chao Shu Fen (fried tapioca noodles, from RM7). Sliced into neat rectangles, the noodles have a soft, slightly chewy texture that hits it off with wok hei, pungent dried shrimp and pork lard.
The Fried Tang Hoon (from RM7) comes a close second, but also merits an order for its abundant trimmings, including prawns, Chinese cabbage and mushrooms. To truly experience Pu Yuan, also order several tai chow dishes to share with the fam. The lady boss will gladly recommend a Signature Fried Homemade Beancurd (RM12) that's deep-fried to a golden crisp whilst retaining its velvety texture within.
Those who prefer meat would relish in the Oatmeal Popcorn Chicken (RM18). The order of chicken popcorns coated in crunchy oatmeal flakes is foolproof. Avg price per person: RM15 Photo by Burppler jionghui lim • 4 Likes • • For rainy day group dinners in Old Klang Road, Coco Steamboat comes to mind.
The restaurant is set in a super spacious warehouse, while an efficient queue system makes the guaranteed wait here bearable. When seated, it's essential you start off with an order of Coco Double Stewed Soup with Whole Bone (RM22.2).
Packed with collagen and meaty goodness, this rich broth is what draws the crowds. Go for simpler sides to satisfy, such as the Set Menu (RM39.80 for two) that comes with the usual steamboat suspects like prawns, dumplings and meatballs. Apart from the basics, treat yourself to additional orders for sharing! The Crispy Fish Skin (RM16.90) is a luxurious pop of crunch while the Sliced Pork (RM13.70) will emerge from the broth curled up in thin, tender slices that are absolutely tantalising.
While waiting on the bubbling broth to cook up a feast, order the scrumptious Crisp-Fried Pork Belly With Shrimp Paste (RM15) to tide you over. Wash dinner down with a sharing jug of cooling Sugarcane, Couch Grass Root & Carrot herbal drink (RM9.50). Avg price per person: RM30 Photo by Burppler Su-Ann Khaw • 4 Likes • • Spot Meng Kee opposite Scott Garden by its bright red signboard sitting out on the road — your reward will be delicious tai chow done right.
For a weekday lunch, gather your colleagues for this affordable meal that stars seafood as its mainstay. The great-for-sharing Steamed Fish With Ginger and Soy Sauce (RM28) soothes with sweet, fleshy fish smothered in chopped ginger and a sauce redolent of rice wine.
Order also the Steamed Lala (RM16). Cooked in a similar style, the shellfish is delicious in its own juicy, toothsome right. The quality extends to their meat dishes, including the Pork Ribs In Soy Bean Paste (RM16).
Slicked in a spicy, saltish sauce, the tender ribs are sure to be gobbled up in a flash. A plate of Stir-Fried Kangkung In Belacan goes for only RM8, so don't skimp on greens here!
The one thing this streetside stall lacks is parking space — hop into an Uber or Grab ride instead. Avg price per person: RM20 Photo by Burppler Kelvin Chan • 2 Likes • • For a barbecue dinner that doesn't involve you doing the work, head to BBQ Thai.
The bustling outdoor environment sporting tuk tuks and other Thai features make this place a frontrunner for your next meetup with the gang! Head straight for their great made-to-order grills. The BBQ Pork Neck (RM28) is found on every table, and it definitely deserves a spot on yours too. Though priced on the steep side, the sliced pork neck spells perfection with its flavour-packed marinade and smoky, tender finish. The spicy green chili dip that comes with it is also hot stuff.
The Tom Yum Seafood (RM25) doesn't overload on heat, so even if you're not a fan of the spicy soup, its gentle zing should still satisfy. Also good to munch on between mains are the Thai BBQ Cockles (RM12). For dessert, order the traditional Tako (RM12 for six pieces) that comes set in banana leaves. The one-bite sweet made of coconut milk, jelly and corn is a refreshing way to end the meal! Avg price per person: RM40 Photo by Burppler Jessica Lau • 3 Likes • • Every evening, an uncle and domestic helper duo sets up shop outside Restoran Wai Kei to sell pan mee, which outshines most of the other offerings along the food street.
Many couples stop by for a simple, satisfying dinner on their way home from work, and you should too. From Lian Kee's humble metal cart, order the Pan Mee (RM7). There are two versions of this dish — soup and dry, and both are done with stringent standards to satisfy. Served in a large ceramic bowl, the soup is best enjoyed with mee hoon kueh or 'pinched' pan mee. The handmade noodles boast a good bite, while the clear broth teems with anchovy fragrance.
On the other hand, the dry rendition delights with its dark brown sauce skillfully seasoned for a balance between sweet and salty. We recommend getting the thick, toothsome pan mee for this! The best part is, both pan mee dishes are topped with copious amounts of crispy ikan bilis, mushrooms and tender pork slices. Rest assured, you will not be leaving hungry. Avg price per person: RM10 Photo by Burppler Rueann Dass • 3 Likes • • This coffeeshop surrounded by car workshops is a brunch stalwart for residents nearby.
The old-school vibes and limited seatings mean that all tables are up for sharing, so swing by for a solo meal and maybe, meet the neighbours while you're at it. Of the several food stalls in operation here, our vote goes to the famous one that sees its heritage in Cheras. The couple serves up a mean bowl of Fish Head Noodles (from RM8.50), which arrives in piping hot milky fish soup jewelled with large deep-fried fish head chunks.
What gives this dish its edge is the side of chilli sauce that supplies a tinge of tangy heat. Tuck into the fish head with confidence, tackling the tasty meat hidden in each nook and cranny — an adorable origami paper saucer is provided to dispose of bones. If you don't feel like powering through fish head, opt to have your noodles with fish paste instead. Avg price per person: RM10 Photo by Burppler Rueann Dass • 2 Likes • • Famous for their halal chicken rice, Chee Meng set along Old Klang Road is a gem for quick lunches with your colleagues — Muslim or otherwise.
The space is lacklustre, but what matters is that there are more than enough tables to accommodate the crowd. Having been in business for over 50 years, the restaurant has got their recipe for authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice (from RM9) down pat. The steamed chicken sports smooth skin and tender flesh, flavoured by a dash of light soy sauce and paired with fragrant oiled rice. Put up an additional RM1 for the fuss-free boneless option! Chicken rice aside, the menu also features tasty dishes from the wok.
Try the Sotong Sambal (RM13) with extra spicy sauce to ladle over rice and the Terung Goreng (stir-fried eggplant, RM11) that's crisp and yummy. Avg price per person: RM20 • 2 Likes • • Run by a rather rotund gentleman of its namesake, Fatty Bak Kut Teh reigns supreme with the best of the both worlds — think a Chinese-style surf and turf of bak kut teh and steamed fish. For family dinners or late night outings with a few friends, this airy outdoor restaurant hits the spot.
Order the Bak Kut Teh (from RM17), served in a claypot chock-full of pork belly, pork balls and innards (the latter is optional, but highly recommended). The broth is on the lighter side, so be sure to help yourself to condiments. A combination of chopped bird's eye chillies, garlic and thick, dark soy sauce complements the meal with robust flavours. Heed bossman's recommendation for their house specialty Ginger Steamed Fish Head (from RM43).
The fresh fish head comes in a whopping size that feeds up to four, and its ambrosial minced ginger sauce bolsters the fish to its ideal flavours. If a man approaches with a different menu for grilled lamb and seafood, take up his offer for Grilled Clams (RM23).
Steeped in a spicy, ginger-laced soup within the foil wrapper, these clams of the thicker shell variety are a delicious addition to the meal!
