Satay House, Paddington

Once in a while I’ll crave Malaysian food so I would come down to London and cari makan (as the M’sians would say it).

I’ve done my fair share of exploring of Malaysian restaurants and amongst the best I’ve tried would be Tuk Din and Satay House. I’ve yet to try Awana and looking at the website I’m sure it’ll hit my list once I’ve tried it. I’ve yet to properly explore Chelsea really (where Awana is at) so I shall make sure to do so once exams are overr!

For now Satay House is my top favourite so everytime I want Malaysian food I just go here. Plus it’s a few minutes walk from Paddington station. How convenient! Especially when I arrive all hungry and what not. Hehe

I can be really boring when it comes to food because I only order the same thing when I come to Satay House…nasi lemak! Honestly I can’t help it ‘cos everytime I crave Malaysian food I mostly crave nasi lemak and its sambal so that’s the first and only thing I want. Of course it’s different when I’m in Malaysia where I can get it anytime! Never craved nasi lemak so much till I came to UK.

So far I’m pleased with the quality of the food and to me presentation also matters. So that’s a check. Depending on the hour, Satay House can either be really quiet and peaceful or buzzing with people. But best part is that it’s not just Malaysians, but a mix of foreign and local people. Actually puts a smile on my face seeing these non-Malaysian people eating my type of food. I’ve even overheard someone saying the food is good once! I know I’m not the chef but that kinda makes me happy! Malaysian food is after all scrumptious in its own definition and everyone should try it :D

    Awana is…fine. One can do a lot worse, of course, but one can do so, so much better elsewhere (Tukdin is my current gold standard for good Malaysian cooking)! The ‘beef rendang’ at Awana should be renamed – to ‘beef curry’ perhaps. Good ambiance, I’ll give them that – glitzy, slightly glamorous, one won’t expect less from a Chelsea-based establishment, but food is largely unmemorable. Unfortunately.

    yeah i guess when it comes down to quality, especially for your own kind of food, ambiance isnt everything. i like tuk din too though satay house is my favourite. thanks for the heads up!
