Marine Terrace Satay
Satay sometimes feels like a celebratory food, like something of a treat. And there is something to celebrate today! Jolie's home!!!! Our Christmas wish is fulfilled! We can begin our family life together at last. Funny, just two years ago, I had zero kids, and now suddenly, my hands are full with two! Hopefully two future foodies to tag along on my adventures!
So back to satay. This is from my neighbourhood (read: good enough to eat if conveniently nearby but not to travel across the island for). The good thing is - these are handmade by the makcik (Malay aunties) there, not out of some factory. Meat is well-seasoned, peanut sauce is tasty (albeit a bit more watery than I prefer).
They use really lean meat, which some may find too dry. I don't mind because I don't like that fatty slab they usually weave in-between lean pieces - unless it's very well-grilled til almost crunchy like kawa (chicken skin yakitori). This stall also serves nice mee rebus.
UPDATE: Tried them a second time - meat a bit too tough and sauce tasted completely different. I guess quality can be erratic.
