Pork Satay (猪肉沙爹) @ Chai Ho Satay Dried Pork (财好沙爹肉乾) - Clementi 448 Market and Food Centre

Residents of Clementi Central should be pretty accustomed to seeing queues at a few stalls located within its only hawker centre. The two most notable ones are no doubt the western and satay stalls situated just next to each other.

My basic criteria for pork satay have always been known to many; smoky flavour is a must with a good enough of sweetness, generous fatty layers and the surface must be a bit burnt.

It's not that hard to satisfy me and most of the times, i have to look at the overall package that includes cucumbers, onions and to many people, that bowl of delish peanut curry dip.

In this case, i have to admit that the pork satays were one of a kind that could not seem to be replicated at any other stalls in Singapore.

Just look at that thick chunk of BBQ fat! This fat is the essence for any pork satay and without it; it might have tasted not much different from chicken satay.

The meat was well marinated given that sensual touch of unbeatable saccharine sensation. To a certain extent, it's like a lighter version of Singaporeans' favourite bak kwa!

There's only a slight problem - the meat was a tad too dry and that's not surprising after seeing how chao ta (burnt) some of the satay were!

S$0.38 for each stick of satay. Bet they are sold by the 10s as no one actually pays in cents anymore. Except for five cents.
