TravellerFoodGuide.Com – Satay is a popular dish that can be found in many South East Asia countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines beside Singapore. It is believed that dish has its origin in Indonesia when the Javanese street vendors adapted from the Indian Kebab.
The dish consists of diced marinated meats, skewered & grilled over charcoal fire. The common meats served are Chicken, Mutton & Beef. Sometimes Pork is available from Chinese stalls. The skewered meats are served with specially made spicy peanut sauce dip, sliced onions, cucumbers & rice cakes locals call “Ketuput”.
In 1940s Singapore, Satay was sold on makeshift roadside stalls and pushcarts. A popular site emerged in 1950s after a major consolidation of satay stalls. This site later became very popular & everyone knows the place as Satay Club. Open only after dark with an “al fresco” concept, Satay Club defined how satay was served in the founding years of Singapore.
The original Satay Club no longer exist. However, the atmosphere of “al fresco” dinning after dark is brought back when Boon Tat Street next to Lau Pa Sat Festive Market is closed to vehicular traffic and the stalls, tables occupy the street.
