    The satays are beautifully presented. Looks delicious too. But I still think Hj. Samuri’s satay is nicer. They use to have a branch right infront of Komag/ Western D. I wonder whether they are still there.

    I think Satay without pieces of fat is a bit too chewy for my liking. But if it’s horse meat or rabbit meat, then it’s something really different lar.

    I like juicy satay with some fats on it too.
    About the horse meat, I have never heard of anybody breeding horses (for their meat) in Penang, so it must be frozen meat imported from other state or most probably from Indonesia, bcos horse meat is popular in Indonesia.
    The point is, if they use frozen meat , of course it got no original flavor, the same goes for seafood, deer meat or other frozen meat.
    BTW, what do you mean by “detoxifying the meat before they were marinated”

      I don’t know too.. it was mentioned as a step in their satay preparation process. Maybe to rid of the impurities or any unwanted smell?

    wah, after so long only this was posted :p

    btw, vkeong, when you say “Because I am confident that Penang, a food haven surely has a better satay restaurant that deserves the title more”

    does that means that you already find a satay in Penang that are better than ah basri already, or haven’t? :D

      nope, haven’t found yet lol. but I am quite sure there are better ones out there and cheaper too. to crown Ah Basri as the best satay would be a sad thing, really.

    Agree with you. Don’t simply crown it as the best satay in Penang.

    Hmm, I like my satay to be fatter as well. Detoxifying the meat may mean that they use some purifying water (yes, many filters have them) to wash their meats, or in usual cases, their greens.

    I would have expected a better review though.

    the most meaty satay i had is located right opposite of the view condominium in penang,where the malay restaurant spore there….(next to police marine HQ i think)

    but my gf said it smells abit shitty due to the yellowish oil?

    Thank you for your comments. How we detoxified our meat? We introduce O3 into filter water for 30 min with the meats in it before we marinate it. That make all meats more tender and cleaner than other in the market.

    For sure, the horse meat is frozen but not from any Turf Club around this region. It is halal horse meat from Indonesia.

    Chicken meat is not frozen, it is the fresh as what you buy from wet market. For your information, it is pricey compare to frozen.

    You may want to try Rasa Sayang Resort Spice Garden Restaurant satay if you still think Ah Basri Asian Satay is pricey. Your feedback always welcome.

      Thank you for the explanation, it is indeed a new and innovative way to clean the meat

      But to compare the price of satay from a hotel with a normal eatery would be unfair.

    What you get at Rasa Sayang Resort Spice Garden Res satay is the same what you get from Ah Basri Asian Satay Restaurant. We had supplied to them for the past 2 yrs. U get huge discount from Ah Basri Asian Satay restaurant. Good day.

    vkeong is rite. i used to frequent basri opp pisa. the operative word here is “USED TO BE GOOD”. not anymore – no diff btw the horse n beef, in fact most of it tastes similar. visited d’piazza outlet ONCE only n decided enuf is enuf! no more. nyok lan kajang still the benchmark.

    Just chance about this article while searching for food in D’Piazza. I have tried the Satay once, and wont try it again, as all of those who consume it ended up with diarheaa. Btw, saw mice running around in D’Piazza, and if i am not mistaken, i was told one of the food outlet in D’Piazza was previously close 1 week by the authority bcoz it did not meet the hygiene level :(

    I have visited the new location of AhBasri satay which is at Jalan Tengah opp Giant beside Hong Leong Bank, the satay taste really good i met the owner and i was told that they dont serve horse meat any longer but instead they introduced ostrich and turkey very soon. Me and my wife liked the calamary the best the meat is chunky and the price is reasonable the place is clean. I certainly will recommend anyone to visit this joint.

    My recent trip to try out AhBasri satay is worth the trip the satay is delicious indeed and i have recommended to my friends. The place is clean and well manered staff. You should try the cucumber juice goes well with the satay especially after a heavy protein meal, no fat and lean meat. Ahbasri has moved to Jalan Tengah opp Giant beside Hong Leong Bank. THUMBS UP to Ah Basri Satay.
