Satay Sate [Indonesian Street Food]

Have been in search for yummy satay skewers in Toronto for years and it's tough to come by, so as soon as I hear about Satay Sate (@sataysate_TO)
Simple menu, wish they have 1-2 more dishes to choose from.... and I really am not sure what's the difference with Indonesian and Thai/Malaysian Satay?!??

Beef Rendang $11.49
Curried Beef - slow braised in coconut milk & spices w/ steam rice , house salad & ACAR
The sauce was amazing and the brisket fell apart to perfection but though they could use a slightly fattier brisket since it end up being rather dry. I do love the salad with no dressing and only the ACAR (pickled cucumber) which was fresh crisp and refreshing with the heavier sauce of these dishes.

Chicken Sate $11.49
Traditional Indonesian Skewers w/ house made peanut sauce
We sub to coconut rice for extra $1 and the flavor was light and subtle, I personally think that the upgrade is not really necessary since the peanut sauce was way more flavorful and stronger in taste. Love the tender grilled chicken skewers and the huge dose of sauce on top. The chef/owner was kind enough and asked if we needed extra sauce, normally I would being a sauce person but it came with the perfect amount to finish the rice. The satay peanut sauce was perfect thickness, peanut-y and not overly sweet like most places.

Both of the meal we ordered came with a side of the Shrimp Crakers which you can also order as a side for $2.50. They were so good packed with intense shrimp flavor, def have to order extra next time.

Bare minimum space!

P.S. - Make sure to ask for some of their hot sauce, it's house made and so fragrant. Wish they sell bottles of it, so good!

Verdict :
Will definitely be back, maybe for take out
Love it here, def need a big bag of those shrimp crackers
