7 Best Satay in Singapore for a Fantastic End to your Hawker Feast
Satay, or meat skewers, is a favourite hawker food among locals. As long as the meat is tender and boasts a little smokiness without being too greasy, we’re happily chomping down stick after stick. Here are 7 best satay stalls in Singapore to tickle your tastebuds!
This hawker’s satay is highly sought after. You can opt for pork, chicken or mutton satay. Pork and chicken satay cost 50 cents per stick while mutton satay cost 60 cents per stick. We shared 15 sticks of chicken satay and 2 ketupat for $8.60. The sticks arrived glistening, with a slightly charred exterior, and each bite is full of flavour. The meat is tender and goes very well with the soft ketupat that has a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Opening Hours: 5.30pm to 9pm daily, and they have no fixed rest days.
Rahim Muslim Food
Opened since the 1960s, the secret recipes for Rahim Muslim Food’s mouthwatering dishes have been passed down through two generations. The signature item here is their special Power Mee Rebus. However, our favourite is the satay (60 cents each, min 10 sticks)! It is BBQ-ed over charcoal and served with their sweet peanut gravy.

There are plenty of stalls selling satay at East Coast Lagoon Food Village but this particular one has been in the business for 38 years. The satay, rice cakes and satay sauce here are all handmade. Also, the portion is quite generous. We enjoyed dipping the succulent meats into their homemade satay sauce, which contained quite a generous amount of peanuts. Simply delicious!
Address: Stall 55, East Coast Lagoon Food Village, 1220 East Coast Parkway, Singapore 468960
Phone: 6441 0495
Opening Hours: Tue-Sun 2pm to 11pm. Closed on Mondays.
Chai Ho Satay
Chai Ho Satay always has a snaking queue mainly because of their super cheap satay($0.42 per stick). They serve both chicken and pork satay, with an amazing gravy, and crunchy cucumber slices. The meat is well-marinated and barbecued over charcoal fire till slightly charred. The standard is consistent and none of our satay was overcooked. We prefer the pork satay due to the good mix of lean meat and fats, which makes the package more enticing and satisfying.

Opening Hours: Wed-Sun 3pm to 9pm, or till sold out. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Yong Seng Satay
This stall sells chicken, pork and mutton satay but we prefer the pork satay. Imagine chewing chunks of well-marinated lean pork with bits of sinful fats in between. It’s more than just heavenly! The owner explains that slightly over-ripe pineapples are mashed and added to the peanut sauce. This results in a sweet and fruity tanginess in the mildly spicy peanut sauce.
Yong Seng Satay
Address: #02-123, Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, 51 Upper Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 588215
Opening Hours: 11.30am to 10pm. Closed on Tuesdays.
This is the juiciest and most sinful satay we have eaten! Each stick of pork belly is so smoky, has charred edges and is dripping with juices. The satay is about 2 times the normal portion of a pork loin satay, so no complaints about having to pay a dollar for each stick. Kwong Satay marinades the meat using saffron, hence it’s more aromatic than the skewers you get elsewhere. The satay gravy comes with mashed pineapple too.
Address: 549 Geylang Lorong 29
Opening Hours: 5pm to 11pm. Closed on alternate Wednesdays.
This one’s for the vegetarians, but honestly, the sticks of satay here taste superb! Satay here cost 80cents per skewer. The charred black segments give the satay a nice smoky flavour and the mock meat is surprisingly tender. Not to mention, the peanut satay sauce is such a good complement. Featuring a creamy texture, it is neither too spicy nor too oily. Be prepared to wait for about 15-20 minutes during busy periods.
Address: #01-92, 79A Circuit Road, Singapore 370079

Opening Hours: Tue-Sun 4pm to 12 midnight. Closed on Mondays.
