So far, my favorite chicken sate is at Nyonya, on Grand
St. accross from Ferrara's of all places. (I don't
care as much for their beef sate though.) It is juicy,
smokey, and fragrant, and the sauce is excellent too.
The only other sate that I have liked nearly as much
is the lamb sate at Sukasari on Damstraat in AMsterdam.
I haven't been their since 1983, but some friends were
their around 1990 and said it was still good. Most of
the Thai sates that I have had around town haven't sent
me -- Sripraphai's is one of their only dishes I don't
care for, and Ubol's is beneath comment. Even the sate
offered at lunch occasionally by the Indonesian embassy
to the UN was nowhere near as good as Nyonya's.

Any other opinions?
