Starting at 7 pm, Lau Pa Sat is converted into a dining area with over 10 satay stalls of which, stalls no. 7 & 8 are of the highest popularity. They offer 6 different sets of satay, with a varying mix of Chicken, Mutton, and Prawn satays. Their marination seemed to be on the sweeter side, as reflected on its reviews. With its rich and thick peanut sauce, they attract returning customers despite being slightly on the pricier side.

Reviews credited its consistency in taste and the usage of herbs differentiates its taste from that of other stalls. Their quick service was also another factor to retain customers and emerge as the most reputable satay store in Lau Pa Sat.

Located at the West, Chai Ho Satay served one of the cheapest satays in Singapore. With a Malay-style marinade, it isn’t strictly a Hainanese-style satay. This is one of the few stalls that claim that they are still making their satay and peanut sauce. With only one stall and having no plans to franchise or expand, they are very contented just to focus on providing the best satay for their customers.

Many complimented its price and the tenderness of their satays. Despite the wait, which would depend on the crowd, customers are willing to wait as the quality of the satays is not compromised.

Founded by Haron Abu Bakar in 1980, Haron Satay 55 has remained popular for its consistent quality and generous amounts of meat per stick of satay. Their satays are grilled upon order, so you’ll get them hot, tender, and succulent. With a balance of sweetness and savoury, it is no surprise that Haron Satay has been voted to be one of the best satays in Singapore.

Reviews revealed a mix of sentiments, with praises of the satays and customer service but the long waiting time seemed to put many off. If you’re trying this stall out, do expect some wait especially during the weekends!

Another stall in the West! This stall in Bukit Timah Food Centre is one of the oldest satay stalls in Singapore which has been around for over 70 years. Currently run by the 3rd generation, the stall was first located around Bugis Junction before they moved to Jurong Kecil in 1964. During then, the satays were sold from a pushcart off the streets.

Due to the volume of satay that they sell every day, the making of the satay has been outsourced to a manufacturer who makes the satay according to their recipe. If you’re a spice lover, try out their peanut sauce that is more on the spicy side!

Surprisingly affordable, Satay by the Bay is located in one of Singapore’s widely known tourists attraction, Gardens by the Bay. I have always known of this place but have never gone there before as I expect inflated prices due to its location. If you’re just like me, perhaps I can clear this misconception as their satay are priced reasonably at $0.70 per stick!

Many attest to its great ambience and convenience as Satay by the Bay is only a stone’s throw away from its main attraction. If you’re heading there to take some pictures with your loved ones, try them out!

Established in 1955, Shi Xiang Satay has seen generations of customers come and go. Now, it is run by the original owner’s son. He learnt how to make satay from his mother, who learnt the craft from her husband. The stall first started out on the streets and stayed in Chinatown thereafter.

Their satay is marinated for at least 24 hours to ensure its tastiness. Looking through its reviews, many were impressed with their satay and Hainanese style peanut sauce that is mixed with pineapple. This adds a slight sweetness to the sauce, differentiating its sauce from the others.

Westies seemed to be in for a treat! Rated as one of the 10 Tasty Hawker Dishes To Travel To The West For, Boon Lay Satay is run by a Chinese couple and you can choose from Chicken, Pork, and Lamb. Unlike some peanut sauce which might be less ground, their peanut sauce is creamy and smooth, with a prominent nutty fragrance.

Reviews recommend their pork and chicken satay which is grilled to perfection. If you’re interested to try others, their chicken wings are highly recommended as well!

Ah Pui Tiong Bahru Satay is well-known for grilling smoky old-school Hainanese satay on his pushcart at Tiong Bahru since the 1970s. Their satay is on the pricier side, at $1.10 per stick and they serve other food items including Grilled Prawn with Thai Seafood Sauce, Grilled Pork Rice, Vietnamese Chicken Wing Rice, Chicken Cutlet Rice, and Fish & Chips.

Despite the satay being pricier than usual, the size of the meats are also about 30% larger and here’s why the satay is so sought-after – all their pork meat is still hand-sliced, marinated with secret spices and ingredients, skewered alternating with fats on the wooden stick, then grilled skillfully over charcoal.

Last one of this guide and let’s introduce a vegetarian option: Victor Veggie. The owner, Victor has been making vegetarian satay for 40 years and from its first glance, one can never tell mock meat apart from actual satay.
