This is topped with boiled shrimps and laksa sauce, which is a mixture of curry sauce and coconut cream. Every bite stimulates the appetite, making it unforgettable from the first taste.
Satay is the not only the special kebab of Nanyang, but also one of the most unique traditional foods in Malaysia.

Satay tastes even better when eaten with traditional Malaysian rice wrapped in coconut or pandan leaves, cucumbers and onions.
