Think our Malaysian satay is good? Wait till you try Balinese Sate Babi.
At Kuta, there is an unassuming stall at an open field strategically shaded by huge trees where you could find some really awesomely delicious pork satay. It goes by a few names such as Sate Babi Gelora Tri Sakti and Sate Babi Lapangan Tri Sakti, while the locals just refer it as the ‘nice pork satay stall under the tree’.
Also, it is said that turtle meat was originally used to prepare the satay here, hence they were once called Sate Penyu. Only when the turtles became a protected species then only they made the switch to use pork.
The satay meat is lean but tender and no dipping sauce is provided because it is already flavorful enough to be eaten on its own. What else can I say? The Balinese takes marinade and sauces very seriously and it really shows that in their cuisines. This beats hands down every pork satay I have had before whether it’s Penang, Malaccan or Singaporean.
