Sate Barokah @ Damansara Utama

I realized that we have not been updating for quite a long time. But that's not because we finally lost our forever hungry spirit. No, the only thing which can prevent us from looking for good food is exams. And since 2 of our 5 members are engaged in battle with the beast called 'Finals', we have not been able to go out looking for good food. is a short update on a place which is quite surprising.

Nestled deep in the heart of the Damansara area is a relatively surprising kampung area. You literally leave the city behind once you turn a corner and find yourself in a quaint little kampung. It's like stepping through the looking glass and finding yourself in another world altogether.

In this kampung is a little warung which sells authentic Indonesian cuisine. Well, more of sate than anything else. Aptly named Sate Barokah, this is a very, very authentic kampung eating place.

But this warung, which doesn't even have any large signboards, is a treasure. Sure it's quite hot because there are no fans around. Sure the mosquitoes tend to buzz around your ear. But for the complete kampung experience inside the city, this is definitely the place to go.

Start off your meal with some keropok, a classic appetizer.

After that, you can try the bakso, or the Indonesian beefball noodle which is very different from some of the other beefball noodles you may have had.

You will need 2 different sauces to mix and match for the perfect taste.

And believe me, the taste is as good as it looks. 

Of course, you can go back to the sate, which honestly doesn't taste as good as Kajang sate.

 But then again, Kajang sate doesn't try to burn off your tastebuds with this delightfully hot chilli mix.

It's so spicy, I put a little bit on my sate and immediately felt as though I put fire in my mouth.

Of course, you can always cool yourself off with a delicious Indonesian fruit mix drink of which I forgot to take a picture of AND forgot the name as well. Happens when you're gulping it down trying to stop the burning.

All in all, this is a place where you can get good and cheap Indonesian food, while enjoying the rustic call of nature. Okay, it's still in the city but that's the beauty of it. For more information on this place, please do not hesitate to contact us. It's kinda difficult to describe how to get there due to, y'know the place not having Facebook. But here is an approximate Google Map of the place.

Hope it helps!
