The best sate in Jakarta
A week ago I got back to Denmark after two months of travelling around Sumatra, Java, Flores and Komodo. I had a great time but was generally not blown away by the food in Indonesia. This one particular hole-in-the-wall sate (also sometimes called satay) place in Jakarta was absolutely amazing though. So if you ever find yourself in the dreadful city of Jakarta, take a taxi to where Jalan Haji Agus Salim and Jalan Kyai Haji Wahid Hasyim meet for the most tender marinated chicken skewers, perfect peanut sauce, pickled vegetables and ice cold coca cola. And it is dirt cheap too! Here are some more pictures:
It is right where the two streets meet (like I wrote above), but it is located on Jalan Kyai Haji Wahid Hasyim on the northern side of the street. The guys working there wear red shirts, and at meal times it is absolutely packed with locals. Order the sate ayam with nasi putih (white rice). The Sate kambing (goat) is also good, but doesn’t hold a candle to the chicken.
