(satay meaning skewers of beef, chicken, pork.. i usually like chicken / pork the best.. in case it needs to be even more specific!)
so, i'm having an insane craving for satay!!
reminds me of my childhood when my parents would bring me to this thai(?) or malaysian place for dinner and it had awesome awesome satay with a relaly good peanut sauce.... too bad it closed down many years ago.
I think it might have been on yonge street?
I don't remember the name.. but i remember seeing a giant nose whenever we passed by it..
i went to golden thai yesterday hoping to be surprised.. tried the coconut shrimp, satay chicken, spring rolls, pad thai, and golden thai chicken... they were all less then stellar.. the only thing that was enjoyable was the pad thai... obviously this place didn't quell my hunger for satay! so now here i am hoping someone can recommend a place??
i went to salad king last week as well and the satay wasn't good either.... i think the ideal satay must, must, must have an amazing accompanying peanut sauce.. the peanut sauce must be slightly sweet with a thick texture and small bits of peanuts... suggestions please???

been browsing the boards and i have heard mention of Restoran Malaysia and really do want to try it .. but it's soo far!! (for me anyway since i'm located downtown).... and with rising gas prices, eating uptown really is only saved for special occasions. hate it! where is Munz?
Is the beef satay succulent? My worst fear is dried and chewy beef satay... it's so easy to overcook it..

I usually don't like Spring Rolls and don't go unless other people are going and I have no real choice, but I find the satay chicken skewers with peanut sauce is pretty nice. i always order peanut sauce on the side. it's nice, chunky, thick with the perfect amount of spice (for me)
