Satay Madura @ Bukittinggi, West Sumatra

Tonight we wanted to try something different, something like common street food in Bukittinggi. As such, we headed to the center of town along Jalan Jendral Sudirman, right beside the Hospital to one of these stalls selling Satay Madura which is an Indonesian delicacy from the province of Madura. There is another version of Satay Padang but that is made of beef and we do not eat beef. Hence, we had to settle for this version.

At The Stall in Jl Jendral Sudirman
The stall is a simple one, just a shack built on a drain by the side of the road. It is common to find many Indonesians dine in stalls like these and the food here is usually good and cheap. It was a cold night today and I was told that this dish is quite spicy and it seemed absolutely perfect.

It was interesting to see how he prepared the food. It seemed so simple to prepare but I am sure there is loads of work that he has got to do at home preparing the basic ingredients.

The final dish arrived. Simple as it looks, there were 8 skewers of Chicken Satay and some rice cakes at the base. It had a light brown sauce which was very spicy and above that, it was garnished with chillies making it even more spicy. It was lovely so much so at the end, I ended up having 3 plates of these for the night. If you are just used to the Malaysian version of satay, then you must try this dish if ever you are in Bukittinggi or any other part in Indonesia. A highly recommended dish and it was safe, I did not have any medical issues the next day having eaten at a stall.
