So when I got this news, I immediately head to Royal Satay Celup at Damansara Uptown to gauge their food quality. A lot of people have been asking how it fared compared to Malacca’s Ban Lee Siang and Capitol.
|Crunchy Ground Peanuts were poured into Satay sauce|
Update (12/10/2012): They have recently changed their policy of fresh pots for every table and have decided to opt for public sharing pots (similar to the original Malaccan concept).
The decision was made after much consideration of many customers’ feedback requesting a thicker gravy and more peanuts in their sauce. The general consensus was that most customers would rather have a richer sauce and would not mind a common pot just as in Malacca since there is a common understanding of “no double dipping”. Their sauce is now thicker, richer and more flavourful. And it is most certainly heavily loaded with lots of good quality ground peanuts!
However, they would still provide the occasional customer with the option of having a fresh pot of sauce at RM 10 for Half Pot and RM 20 for Full Pot.

So here’s what we had that night:

Yellow Plate: RM 2
As for the taste of satay celup sauce, it’s not similar with Ban Lee Siang or Capitol but all I can say is, I prefer this more. Not too spicy nor too sweet, the taste is just right and the sauce is homemade by Joseph, owner of the restaurant.
So among the food we ate (and that I know of) are: Pandan fried chicken, squid, sausage, crabstick, prawn, mushroom, fish ball, kangkung, quail egg, pork intestines, scallop, ham, fu chuk, yao char kuey and mantao.
