ATLANTA, GA - Satay is a dish in the form of pieces of meat pierced with skewers and then burned, topped with peanut, sambal, and soy sauce. Initially, satay is made from beef, then created with buffalo meat, chicken, fish, shrimp, and even tempeh. But the cut material that was pierced with a satay prick and burned is still held as his identity.

Satay has a distinctive taste with base ingredients of various meats from chicken, goat, to rabbit. Uniquely satay has different variations, such as savoury bean sauce. Initially, Americans seasoned meat with only salt and pepper. But after getting to know kebabs that are typical middle eastern cuisine, Americans also like to eat beef or goat by roasting with spices. That is the beginning of satay as a favourite food of American society. The word satay is from Tamil, namely data which means meat.

Geographically, satay first became a food introduced by Indonesia. Almost every region has a variety of satay sellers. Not just Indonesia, in some countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, satay becomes an easy food to find.
