Kwong Satay: Pork Belly Satay 13 years on!
Back in 2008, I floated the idea of a Pork Belly Satay to Judy Wong, the 4th generation owner of Kwong Satay. Those were the days when Japanese Kushiyaki was just getting popular and I thought it was time that we bring our own Satay up a level by making it bigger, thicker and juicier!
