Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

You’ve probably heard of a legendary Satay Club that your grandparents used to frequent. Yusoff Haji Jalal is that very spot. Currently calling Pasir Panjang Food Centre its home, the humble store still serves up grilled meat sticks that are injected with tons of nostalgia. Since then, things haven’t really changed except price but hey, blame it all on inflation – we’re pretty sure that your grandparents will side with us on this. 

Expect succulent cuts of meats skewered with a touch of animal fat. The skewers are then brushed with a signature sweet savoury marinate which gives it an inimitable red hue. They're worth every minute of the wait as the skewers are patiently grilled to perfection, giving it its signature smoky flavours and bits of carcinogenic char that we can’t resist – even with the faded conscious eating health promotion board posters plastered around the food centre.

Paired with a luscious peanut dipping sauce that is served piping hot and raw onions to chase, each bite is heaven on a stick. Choose from a selection of chicken, mutton, and beef ($0.80 per stick). We reckon to go straight with the chicken if you prefer cleaner flavours and softer textures. But if like us, you aren’t afraid of gamey profiles and a little chew, definitely order up the mutton.
