The chicken (satay ayam) and beef (satay daging) satay here is extremely good. I would say the best time to come here is around 6.00 - 6.30pm, as the satays are hot off the coal so the meat is still succulent (I feel satay gets a bit dry when it's cold). Order some of the ketupat (rice cakes) too!
Another important factor is the spicy peanut sauce. The sauce here is thick and sweet, with a hint of chilli in it. And they are not stingy with it, we usually get a few bowls of sauce to dip our satay in.
And not to be missed, the Seafood Tom Yum. Very appetizing and quite spicy, hot and sour broth with loads of prawns, mini squid rings, chicken and oyster mushrooms. Tom Yum-my, I like!
Price: I think the satays are priced at RM0.60 per stick. The price of fried rice ranges from RM4.00 - RM5.50. Very reasonable.

With one day spare, what did we end up doing? Yup, we went on a "Canal Walk/Tour", to be precise we walked the whole length of Regent's Canal on a cold winter's morning (Doesn't sound very interesting right? But the walk turned out to be very pleasant).
Have you heard of Banksy? He's a famous graffiti artist in London - who in the world likes graffiti, I hear you ask? Well, actually Banksy has fans from the likes of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Christina Aguilera. And his work is no longer called graffiti, but "artwork".
For my main course, I had Braised Ox Cheek with smoked mash, Bourguignon mushrooms and pickled pearl onions. I've eaten braised ox cheek 3 times in my life, and this is the best by far.
