Though a lot of the food I’ve been eating in Bangkok has been a bit underwhelming, there’s definitely been some good stuff, too. Such as: this amazing chicken satay I had from a place called Jay Eng.
Everything about it was just right: it was super tender, the marinade was really tasty, and it had a nice smoky flavour from the grill. And that peanut sauce? Bananas. It was like a nuclear bomb of flavour. Perfection.
I’d say it’s the best chicken satay I’ve ever had, but then I had some pretty amazing ones in Singapore a couple of years ago; I’d have to try them side-by-side to know which was better.
