At the beginning, Sate Sapi Pak Kempleng (beef skewers Mr.Kempleng) peddled by Mr. Sakimin (the real name of Mr. Kempleng) from village to village. His son, Mr. Sumorejo has expand the business by settled the stall at Diponegoro street. Now the restaurant has been handled by Mr.Hamzah, the 3rd generation of this family.
You can choose the satay/skewers by yourself. They served the meat, fatty part, intestines, tripes, liver & lung.
They cut the meat bigger size than ordinary skewers I’ve ever ate. When they start to grill the skewers, the aroma is really made my tummy dancing. I only order 5 pieces, because my stomach can’t take it anymore. It came with peanut sauce with slices of cayenne chili & red onion.
I mix it all, then here it comes….my first bite! OMG, the meat is so tender, blended perfectly with the peanut sauce. The spiciness of chili added the richness of its flavor. The fatty part skewers is melted in your mouth. The intestines, liver & lung are very tender & scrumptious. They’re all marinated first with brown/java sugar and herbs. Two thumbs up! Price 25 K per portion.
