Satay Inn 沙嗲軒 (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★★☆

Now that Cafe Malacca has made me realize how much I missed Singaporean food, I decided to go back to my favorite spot, Satay Inn, for the "Taste of Singapore".

I thought I could memorize their food menu by now but turns out they've tinkered it just a bit by removing some of the less popular items. So we are looking at the condensed version now.

As usual, we started things off with the house special sauteed carrot cake with egg and shrimps ($108). This is probably the best Singaporean carrot cake you will ever find in Hong Kong so come and try it out yourself!

Pepper chicken wings ($88) was a rare dish that I've never tried here before. These were deep-fried to golden brown color with peppercorn and secret sauce. Not bad.

Some of us wanted to try their grilled pork neck ($98) and looks like they have got a good one here. Very crispy and each piece has got a good balance of fat and meat. Very nice.

After having those awful chicken satay at Cafe Malacca last week, I was real happy to finally take on some tasty chicken and pork satay ($198). These tender skewers of chicken and pork which were marinated in their special peanut sauce really rock! And I must add, they were all very meaty too!

A trip to Satay Inn is never complete without ordering their fried kway teow ($102). It has the perfect balance of sweetness and spiciness backed by a very strong casting of fresh shrimps, fish cakes, Chinese sausages, egg bean sprout, flat rice noodles and egg noodles. That is so good.

Another dish we tried last week at Cafe Malacca was Mee Goreng ($98) but very different results this afternoon. We absolutely love these fried egg noodles with shredded chicken, tomato and potato. Savory and a little spicy. 

Apart from the pepper chicken wings, ginger and sesame chicken ($98) was another one that managed to fly under our radar all these years. Pieces of chicken were braised in this house-made sesame and ginger sauce but we've got mixed reviews about this one.

Still the best Singaporean food in town hands down. My happy belly was totally packed and I guess I'll have to wait to try their dessert next time.
