Sate Klatak (chevon satay) rise in popularity has resulted in many a seller popping up left, right, and centre. In fact, any satay purveyors who traded in your common mutton satay would tend to include Sate Klatak into their menu. However, two Sate Klatak places that have managed to push their way to the top are Pak Pong and Pak Bari. Thus we decided to find out which among them could be deemed the best.
Ever since this place showed up in a scene from “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 2”, Sate Klatak Pak Bari has been jammed with customers. Its semi-alfresco interior features unique wooden tables and a lesehan-style (dining while sitting on the ground) area complete with mats. Service time is swift here, and the dressing that is served with its Sate Klatak – which can be eaten with or without rice – is deliciously savoury.
Its satay is a tad too salty and sinewy, and that includes its meat. It has limited options on its menu, which spells bad news for those who are averse to mutton satay.

It’s very capacious in space, which is divided into three sections: indoors, a semi-alfresco area, and a section filled with a few saung (gazebos). Waiting time here is brief due to the many waiters and waitresses that it employs. The meat on its satay is tender and savoury, and you can request your satay without skin and lard.
The shop tends to be overcrowded during weekends, and it could take more than an hour to have your food ready. We suggest you pop by right after it opens for business so that you could eat in peace. The dressing for its Sate Klatak is a bit bland in taste.

The winner here has got to be Pak Pong. Its tantalising Sate Klatak can be devoured with or without rice, and its tender and savoury meat keeps me coming back for more.
