Life in Malaysia is all about food. So it stands to reason that cycling revolves around finding new places to eat.
Last week Mark had noticed a particularly well-patronized stall on the Kampung Sri Kundang route. So we set out from Bukit Jelutong just before dawn to check that place out. Our hope was that we would get most of our riding done before it got very hot. The sun had other ideas.
So we kept the pace relaxed along the Guthrie Corridor Expressway and Jalan Kuala Selangor. Mark slowed down as we made the left turn at Kampung Sungai Pelong. He thought we were close to the stall he was looking for. Sure enough, it was 300 meters down the road.
Sate Sri Subang has made a name for itself as a place to get good satay. Satay is an archetypal Malaysian dish. In my days of business-class travel on Malaysian Airlines, courtesy of my employers, the beef and chicken satay served onboard was always a highlight.
The satay grill comes to life in the evenings. In the mornings the offerings are nasi lemak and nasi dagang. Nasi lemak is available everywhere in Malaysia. Nasi dagang is a dish more commonly found in the northern states of Kelantan and Terengganu. It was no surprise that the ladies running the stall this morning were from Kelantan. Immediately identifiable as such by their Kelantanese dialect.
Having been denied our nasi lemak last Sunday, we had our minds set on some today. As we waited for our nasi lemak to be plated up we were tempted by a range of savory and sweet items laid out on the table.
We will be stopping at Sate Sri Subang again.
So now we have two breakfast options during our Guthrie Corridor Expressway rides. A stop at Sharif Roti Canai in Kampung Sri Kundang is compulsory though. We haven’t found a better teh halia anywhere else.
