ALWAYS mistaken for having a connection with royalty, Kebab Sultan owner Muhammad Ashraf Asri, 28, said there was a rather funny story behind the name itself.

“I don’t have my own transport, so my friends like to tease me by calling me ‘sultan’ because they have to pick me up every time, ” he laughingly said while adding that he did not expect the name to catch on so well when he first used it as his brand.

With the going price as affordable as RM3.50, buying just one kebab is never enough to satisfy one’s hunger pangs.

Famously known for its use of Thousand Island sauce, Kebab Sultan is one of the best snacks to have when in Sungai Buloh.

The sauce definitely peps up the kebab’s flavour and there is a lot of cheese added to the mix than any other ordinary kebab.

There are three varieties of kebab here – beef, chicken and a combination of beef and chicken.

Ashraf says he will be adding more options to his offerings. Ashraf says he will be adding more options to his offerings.

Ashraf said his customers would usually order the beef kebab because the chicken kebab was the only option available to those who abstain from beef.

While the stall only sells kebab at the moment, Ashraf has plans to introduce new menus in the future.

He said he needed more time to consider the costs as well as the profit he could earn to avoid losses.

“I am currently learning the wrapping process in making shawarma.

“And I plan to open a new stall when I have finalised my new menu so I can attract new customers, ” he added.

Kebab Sultan operates from 5.30pm to 11pm, daily except Sundays.

It is located at Jalan Kusta, Kampung Melayu, Batu 13, Sungai Buloh, Selangor.
