Hawkers Food Centre at Satok

Not to be misssed in Kuching is the nightly hawkers food centre at Satok. It's my favourite haunt for satay, mee, soup, burgers and barbecued chicken and the popular ' ikan terubok'.
In the day time the site is a car parking lot but come 6.00 pm it metamorphosed into a food centre ala hawkers style. Business hours end in the wee hours of the morning.

At this stall one can get a variety of barbecued items like finely sliced and spicely marionetted chicken meat the locals call 'satay' hence the stall is normally referred to as a 'satay' stall and the operator/owner the 'satay man'. Traditionally the 'satay man' uses an organic fan made from local palm leaves to blow the burning charcoal. However increasingly many opt for the electric fan which does the job just as well minus the romanticism.
