On its own, satay is a snack.
Change the sauce or combine with other ingredients, and it's another dish altogether. Here are a few versions of satay that you can get in Singapore.
Satay gado gado
WHERE: Rosraihanna Soto and Satay
B1-19 Golden Mile Food Centre 505 Beach Road
OPENING HOURS: Noon-10pm daily To begin with, they are already highly rated by Makansutra for their satay.
But plain satay can be limiting and boring even. (How many times and how often can you eat satay anyway?) So they also offer a rare manifestation of it. They take three pieces of their patiently grilled soft and smokey satay (chicken, beef or mutton), add gado gado, then slather the whole thing with their thick, nutty and spicy peanut sauce.
The greens retain crunch and go so well with the satay, ketupat pieces, tofu and egg.
Very hearty, and it's no wonder that this is one of their best-sellers at lunch.
