Possibly the only place one could find such rendition of the chicken satay, drizzled with some olive oil (?) and chimichurri! Chicken bits were succulent and so tender, with a mix of char aroma and yet tanginess from the chimichurri. For those who prefer the good-ol traditional chicken satay, this may not be for you in huge portions but still worth the try. At $0.90/stick, why not? & also not forgetting the waiting list is ~6months! (As of the time of this post!)

Featured on various media for its old-school, charred grills. It’s $0.90/stick, each comes with extremely well marinated meat and right portions of meat and fat! Loved how the meat were chunky (approx x1.5 the size of normal satay from the hawker?), and the Hainanese peanut gravy that comes with pineapple purée (option to have it served separately and you get to control the amount of pineapple to add). The longtong were great carbs to pair with the peanut gravy. I wish the peanut were more fragrant tho! Haron’s were a lil’ more crunchy and fragrant. This is of a slightly milder crunch and milder fragrance.

Pork’s a must try!

Extremely peppery and a lil’ too al-dente! Slightly too hard for my preference but everyone else on the table loved it!

Enjoyed the pasta here too! Pesto Chicken ($13.90) - pasta was al dente and the creamy homemade basil pesto was very flavourful and topped with cheese.

A tad too spicy for me, but this garlicky goodness was pretty addictive. Did wish they were the giant fresh prawns but at this price, it was a pretty enjoyable pasta dish and I’m just nitpicking ha.

Their signature is the Pork Satay (which requires reservation in advance!) so we got the Pincho Sate Chicken ($9 for 10). They also sell frozen satay, but again, these require advance reservation.

Not your typical local satay, the chicken skewers were described to be a Spanish-Indonesian fusion of flavours; chunkier, juicy and ohso tender with just the right ratio of meat/fat, drizzled with a delicious homemade chimichurri sauce.
