On a hill behind our old Istana Negara sits a stretch of ikan bakar stalls, but it’s Kedai Kat Jat (more commonly referred to as Gerai No. 3) that stands out. The lone man at the grill may be the silent type but his perfectly cooked, banana leaf-wrapped seafood does all the talking. It’s the freshness of the fish that hits you first; the spicy marinade complements but doesn’t take away from the true taste of the fish. For an extra kick, have it with the air asam dipping sauce and wash the spiciness down with a cold glass of air kelapa.

Ridicolously expensive. Decided to pay a visit after a long while and was shocked at the prices. Had 2 sotong and it cost us MYR60. Thought it was a mistake so we called the Kakak to checkthe bill and she said each sotong is MYR30. OMG! Daylight robbery. Think they are definitely making more than MYR500k per year and should be GST. Registered business. Obviosuly they are tax invoice! Feeling sore.... Total bill was MYR127 exclusing drinks (one mid size siakap, one other fish small size don't know the name, one ikan mid size and one small size ikan pari, 2 sotong and 2 plain rice with some vege.
