Penang Food: Satay




Satay is the famous meat-on-a-stick and is a traditional Malay food also commonly found in Penang. It is typically made from marinated meat such as chicken, mutton or beef, which is then skewered onto bamboo sticks and grilled over fires of charcoals. A fresh salad of cucumbers and onions are often served together with a spicy-sweet peanut dipping sauce for the satay. Ketupat, a Malay rice cake usually in the shape of a white rice cube, is also sometimes served together with satay.
