REALLY GOOD
1st CHICKEN SATAY
The Café & Terrace Restaurant, Singapore
Chicken, served with cucumber, onions, rice cake and spicy peanut sauce. Perfectly portioned.
2nd CHICKEN SATAY
ABC Brickworks, Singapore
Smoky, flavorful, grilled skewered meat, ketupat (rice dumplings cooked in woven palm leaves) and cucumber to accompany a spicy and tasty peanut gravy.
3rd CHICKEN SATAY
Stamford Catering Services Pte Ltd, Singapore
I really enjoyed this and would’ve gone for more except the entire thing of peanut gravy fell off the counter and then I knew it was GAME OVER. 😭
5th INDONESIAN BEEF SATAY | SATE MERANGGI INDONESIA
The Majapahit @ Arcoris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
“Intensely flavorful skewers of Indonesia’s heritage-spiced grilled beef.” Intensely flavorful is correct!
6th SATAY DAGING & AYAM
Satay Station, Kuala Lumpur
Chunky chicken and beef satay with an extremely spicy peanut gravy. 🥵
7th CHICKEN SATAY
Changi Village Satay, Singapore
With ketupat and the regular fixins’. Tender meat on sticks with just the right balance of fat and muscle. The gravy was decent as well.
8th 雞肉沙爹 CHICKEN SATAY
選记沙爹王 Chuan Kee Satay, Singapore
Chicken satay served with Hainanese-style gravy i.e. spicy peanut gravy with a dollop of pineapple purée. There was a long line to get this and they’d sold out of their pork satay, which is supposed to be sensational. Next time...
PRETTY GOOD
9th CHICKEN SATAY
Haron Satay, Singapore
Charcoal-grilled chicken satay with ketupat (rice dumplings), cukes and onion. Marinade and gravy are a tad sweet.
10th CHICKEN SATAY WITH PEANUT AND PINEAPPLE SAUCE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Very flavorful but the meat was a little dry from grilling in the oven. The gravy was also very spicy from the addition of perhaps one too many chili padis (birds eye chili). 🌶 🌶 🌶
11th SATAY OF SOUTHEAST ASIA
The Majapahit @ Arcoris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Four of The Majapahit’s signature satays: 1. Malaysian Chicken Satay 2. Vietnamese Grilled Sugarcane Prawn 3. Balinese Fish Satay 4. Indonesian Beef Satay
12th BALINESE FISH SATAY | SATE LILIT BALI
The Majapahit @ Arcoris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
“Charcoal-charred skewers of brightly seasoned fish paste with lemongrass.” The only thing missing is a breezy evening along the beach somewhere.
13th CHICKEN SATAY
DBS Asia Treasures Lounge, Singapore
Snack-sized hunks of grilled meat complemented with a decently-spiced gravy. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet.
14th CHICKEN SATAY
RESTORAN S DOUBLE ONE S11 美食中心 , Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Smokey, grilled fatty, poultry on a stick. Under normal circumstances, I would’ve picked at the fat and the soot but today was not a normal day and so I tried to maximize my enjoyment of what I had and went all the way. It really is quite tasty when you stop thinking about what you’re eating. Gravy was super-spicy and yet I couldn’t stop and got more of it from the lady who was also really nice about it.
JUST OK
16th CHICKEN SATAY
Yong Seng Satay, Singapore
There was a throng at this stall and I waited and waited in anticipation of a delicious, snacky dinner. Alas, it underwhelmed even hungry moi. 😕
17th MALAYSIAN CHICKEN SATAY | SATAY AYAM
The Majapahit @ Arcoris Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Barbecued marinated chicken thighs on skewers. It wasn’t the satay but the accompanying sauce that was a letdown.
