Singapore’s Satay Culture: Satay by the Sea! #OurHawkerCulture
Satay holds a very special place in Singapore food culture. It is the only hawker dish where you can find many stalls at the same place, selling the same dish. You don’t find chicken rice clubs or bak chor mee clubs or roti prata clubs, but you can find Satay Clubs which are a throwback […]
there are two different styles of satay in Singapore. One is the Malay style and the other the Chinese style. I love them both, although, I do feel that Hokkien mee goes better with the Hainanese style pork satay. The two styles differ not only in the ingredients used for the marinade, but also in how the satay is grilled.
This story follows my previous story about Lim’s Fried Oyster. both of these stalls are located in the same area of Berseh Food Centre. I was alerted to it by my friend Damien who told me about a masked couple selling satay which he felt was very well grilled such that it was slight charred on the […]

I have always loved satay. As a kid, satay was the easiest, tastiest thing to eat. In those days, it seemed to be a regular feature at every coffeeshop you visit. So, aside from selling kopi and teh, each coffeeshop would make their own pau and there will be someone grilling satay along the pathway […]
There is something very romantic about eating satay under the stars. I don’t mean romantic like the Valentine’s day kind of romantic, but the nostalgic kind of romantic. I am sure that if I mentioned “Satay Club”, the name would conjure up that fuzzy warm feeling of yesteryear in those of us who are old […]
Fatman Satay: Iconic Satay since the Satay Club days
I think that there are very few food places that could elicit as many fond memories and nostalgia as the Satay Club at Esplanade. For those of us who can remember eating there, it was the epitomy of the Satay experience in Singapore. And in those days, when you ask around about which Satay stall […]
Ultimate Hawker Fest 2012: I dream of the Ultimate Pork Satay!
Every time I eat Buta Bara Kushiyaki (Japanese grilled pork belly) I always wonder why no one would think about using the same cut for Satay. The problem with Satay nowadays is that they have been cut so small that the meat dries out. How wonderous would a Buta Bara Satay be? The meat would […]
This stall has moved Do you reckon that there are much fewer satay stalls nowadays? I remember that when I was growing up, there seemed to be Satay stalls in almost every coffeeshop. Nowadays it seems that it is really hard to find Satay stalls, let alone good ones. The thing about Satay stalls is […]

The kind of restaurant I like, that’s what. [email protected] is the kind of place where foodies like myself would imagine running. Just get a hole-in-the-wall […]
Rosraihanna Soto and Satay: At last, a good Satay!
This Stall is closed It’s been a long while since I was really thrilled by a Malay style satay. Just last month, I was in KL and I had the opportunity to try the famous Sate Kajang. I came away feeling that it hardly lived up to its reputation even though the stall sold 40,000 […]
Penang Food Trail 2: Streetside Night Spots Part 1
One thing I really enjoyed about Penang is the fact that they still have real streetside hawkers who come out at night to peddle their wares. These type of hawkers have long since dissappeared from Singapore except for the contrived ones along Lau Pa Sat and Gluttons Bay. There is a certain charm as well […]
