How could I not start this review with the words "all praise"? It's not only roughly what the Malaysian name translates to, this red-themed, cosy place is also adding some much needed colour to Ball's Pond Road, an otherwise dull stretch of road lost somewhere between Dalston proper and the Islington heartland. So there, all praise to Puji Puji for, you know, just being there. And it's not bad either. Au contraire. The traditional Satay dishes are just as good as they claim they are, properly marinated with lots of spice, freshly grilled and with a sauce that doesn't, as is the case far too often, remind you of peanut butter. Choose between chicken, lamb, prawns or vegetables, or go for one of their filling Goreng options, some meatier than others. I'm not Malaysian, so may others argue about the authenticity of it all. I, for one, take another drink from next door (they don't have a license in here) to the counter and watch a new round of Satay sticks sizzling their way onto my plate. Puji!
