[CLOSED] Fu Dao Home Made Satay: Satay with Zing!
Must try: Black pepper satay
First and foremost, Fu Dao has got the basic satay (50 cents per stick) right. Barbequed with the right amount of char and smokiness, the meat–there was only pork or chicken when we visited–was tender and tasty, ending with a slightly sweet honey flavour.
The star, though, was the black pepper satay (50 cents per stick). Also available in the two meat variations mentioned earlier, the well-marinated meat was generously crusted with crushed black pepper. While some may find the bits of pepper granules irritating–it tends to get between your teeth, we thought it added a new dimension to an otherwise standard hawker item. The heat of the pepper offered an uplifting “zing” to the taste buds.
Pity the peanut sauce, which while done well, wasn’t spectacular. But at the end of the day, the satay itself was so good, we’re happy to tuck in without sauce!
