I found Sataysfied on Twitter (Twitter: @sataysfied) while I was having a serious craving for Indonesian food, something San Francisco lacks direly. Earlier in the week, I read that he was going to be serving in the Haight and made my way over there. Alas, it was not to be. When I arrived, he told me that he only had pork. I do not eat pork, and thus we parted ways with a growl in my stomach.
After a few back-and-forths on Twitter, Sataysfied told me he would be at today’s Underground Market in Oakland with chicken. It was the first cart I sampled, and it was really, really good. He marinates his chicken with kecap manis (Indonesian medium sweet black soy sauce ketchup) and then grills them before your very eyes. The satay were very good and meaty, with good hefty portions.
A serving also included several scoops of rice and lots of free, homemade peanut sauce. It was so good that I went back for seconds, but he had already sold out of the chicken within the hour.
(One skewer for $3, two for $5, and $6 includes rice)
