Like Nasi Lemak,
SATAY or Sate is not Kelantanese by origin.
Often eaten in the evening by most Malaysians,
the Kelantanese, with their passion for food
decided to include the barbequed chunks of sweet marinated meat
as one of the treats
in their prized morning breakfast.
Go to the pasar, roadside stalls, warung or even kedai kopi across Kelantan and
you can see wrappings of Satay, Nasi Kapit* and dowsed with peanut sauce
sold side by side with the common morning nasi berlauk.
*Nasi Kapit: Kelantanese for Nasi Himpit or Lontong or simply rice cake. Kapit = Himpit.
