"Sate Padang" Indonesia Restaurant Tip by Sharrie

Indonesia Restaurants: 132 reviews and 111 photos


Sate Padang (Padang is a region of Sumatra) is my most favorite street vendor food. I had this since I was a kid & remembered all those days where I looked forward to either the recess or the end of the school day where I'd rushed off to get my share of Sate Padang! It's one of the best known of Sumatra dishes & though Sate is typical of Indonesia dish, I only like Sate Padang. Sate is cooked on the spot as pictured. The common Sate is grilled with charcoal & then served with a spicy peanut sauce but Sate Padang has a different kind of sauce. I don't know what's in it & neither can I describe the taste. It's out of this world & my aunt used to comment my addiction & talked about "ganja" being one of the ingredients ;-) Different kind of meat can be ordered including the "Lidah" (cow's tongue); this is one of the best!
