Haron Satay


The East Coast Lagoon hawker centre might as well be called Satay Village, because it's a mini-hub of satay stalls. A dozen or so, all trying hard to snare patrons with warm smiles and friendly calls. Hmmm, a sweet dilemma. Which one do you try?

Satay sizzling over hot coals
I have had advice from some who have gone around trying and testing. "The one next to the (only) ayam penyet stall" they say has the most tender and tasty meat. In our experience, that's true on some days, less so on others. But they do a really good job marinating, because these skewered BBQ meats are good enough to eat on their own, without any dipping sauces.

Beef, chicken, mutton and tripe (babat, below)
We packed home some satay for MIL, whose appetite has remarkably improved in the last few days. I snuck a few sticks of babat (tripe), for myself - never had tripe as satay til now. Surprisingly, it was the most tender of all the meats. Soft, yielding and heavily spiced, yet without any offensive scent so common with organ meat. I must have more next time!

Haron Satay is Stall no.55
Looks like they sell chicken wings too, with a price list for bulk orders. In fact, someone yesterday just left a comment recommending their chicken wings. Ah, more things to try next time.

    Nice rite? My family never fail to order that, no matter which satay stall we patronise.
