Satay Jawa Pak Ali @ Beside Pulau Tikus Market, Penang (Halal)

Satay Jawa Pak Ali is formerly from the Street Food Paradise infront of Penang Chinese Girls High School (PCGH) at Jalan Gottlieb. In the early 90s the Hawkers were requested to be relocated because of massive traffic jam infront of the School at night. Most of them have shifted to given site which is beside the Pulau Tikus Market at Jalan Pasar.

Satay Jawa Pak Ali is currently operating infront of Pulau Tikus Market along Jalan Pasar in the evening until night. After the Satay Jawa Pak Ali's Stall has moved to Jalan Pasar, I still patronize it until today. I always find his Satays tender and not tough to bite like other Satay Stalls. Currently his Son, En. Hamzah Ali is running the business there.

The Satays are normally served with Sliced Cucumber and Cut Onions together with everyone's favourite Peanut Gravy. Never leave out the Peanut Gravey when you are eatting the Satays.
