Chye Seng Satay ( 再成猪肉沙爹): Traditional Hainanese Style Satay
History tells us that the Satay we have today started off as meat on the metal skewers which traced back to the Arabs. Over time, with the opening of the spice trade, satay eventually adapted to the multicultural palates of Asians with various spicy sauces and different ways of marinating the meat.
The stall claims that their satay are handmade which causes them to be so delicious.
Traditionally, pork satay comes with one layer of fatty meat that are slightly charred and melts in the mouth when savored.
The mutton satay retains some gamey flavour, which I thought was the key to a flavour-some (means flavourful and awesome) mutton satay!
The key to Chye Seng Satay lies in their out-of-this-world satay sauce! What’s so special about the Hainanese style is addition of pineapple puree into the peanut sauce to make it more fragrant and at the same time creates a tinge of tangy and sweet taste. The sauce is so sought after that additional bowl will cost $0.5, or was it $1.
