If you really think about it, satay hawkers are drawn to bodies of water: Haron Satay at East Coast lagoon, Satay By The Bay, and now defunct Satay Club during its heydays at the Esplanade and Clarke Quay.
We’d wager a guess that grilling (and eating) satay under the stars and the thick mix of charcoal smoke, lemongrass, exhaust fumes and sea breeze might have to do with its appeal.
Now, a new hawker has emerged, this time right opposite a fishing pond at Pasir Ris Park.
Satay At The Park
Aptly named Satay At The Park, the new stall overlooks the expanse of water and specialises in grilled meat on sticks, of course.
The pond is a popular recreation area within the park where hobbyists and seasoned anglers alike come to catch fish.
At the stall, skewered meat is the headliner on the menu: 10 sticks cost between S$9 and S$10 depending on the type of meat chosen — chicken, mutton or babat (tripe).
Grilled tiger prawns are also available at S$10 for five skewers.
Otak-otak costs S$1 per piece, though there is a minimum order of five pieces.
Heftier dishes on the menu include the Messy Grill Burger (S$5) and Messy Buns (S$2.50 for Cheesy Hotdog Bun and S$4.50 for Cheesy Satay Bun).
Opening hours: Evening only
The business operates from 5pm to about 10pm, so don’t expect to have lunch here.
A post that was shared on their Facebook page has amassed over 2.6K shares at the time of writing, so expect a crowd or possibly some dishes being sold out.
That said, plan your trip down accordingly.
