“One day,” my colleague Nish said, “we have to take a tram all the way down Bourke St and have lunch at this really awesome Grilled meat place when we are less busy.” We have been slaving away on a project for months, and it didn’t seemed that that day would come where we can take 1.5 hrs for lunch.  But that day came and we excitedly piled on a tram that took us all the way down to Bourke/King st where this legendary grilled meat place is- Kedai Satay.
This Indonesian place looked greasy and dodgey outside, but the hero of this place is the food, so don’t judge the book by its cover.

Oh my. Without sounding like 50 Shades of Grey I basically did a yumgasm looking at my plate of food.  The smell was wonderful and the taste was even better.

The salad was nothing to rave about but the hero of the dish (why am I sounding like Masterchef?) is really the meat.  And for less than $12 it was a fantastic feed. 8/10
