Satay Brothers specializes in Singaporean cuisine - a cuisine with over 50 national dishes representing the ethnic diversity of this country. With that many dishes, food is central to their culture. You can find a foretaste of these dishes here at Satay Brothers. During summertime, it has a food stand located at the Atwater market, which stays true to the concept of a hawker centre. During the cold seasons, they have a small unmarked restaurant located on rue Saint-Jacques.

Satay, a staple among hawkers in Singapore, consists of cubed meats that is marinated, skewered and then grilled. This is served with a gingery peanut butter sauce and freshly cut cucumber. The pork skewers were tender and juicy with a perfectly sweetened glaze. The grilled flavour was quite pleasant and noticeable. The green papaya salad is a nice refreshing appetizer to start off the meal and to get your palate started - crisp, tangy, nice crunch from the toasted peanuts with the right amount of acidity to bring the dish altogether.

The steamed pork buns are like an Asian version of tacos. The shell is a pillowy steamed bun stuffed with a fork-tender slab of pork belly, sweet-salty hoisin sauce and a few sprigs of coriander for added freshness. The laksa lemak has a delicious and flavourful broth coming from the coconut milk and the prawns. The sambal gives a nice addition of heat to the broth. Definitely a bowl worth ordering to warm you up.

The mee goreng has a nice contrast of flavours. It consists of stir-fried egg noodles in a spicy tomato sauce tossed together with cuttlefish, bean sprouts, cubed potatoes, shrimp and scrambled eggs. A squeeze of lime helps temper down the spiciness of the overall dish.
