This cheerful eatery on the ground floor of St George's Studios is dishing up genuine Malaysian-Chinese cuisine, plus a range of Asian desserts.
Located on the fairly unglamorous St George’s Road, Satu Satu claims to offer ‘the most authentic Asian culinary experience without racking up the air miles’, and it does a good job of delivering on this promise. Food is served from the busy open kitchen quickly and efficiently, and the staff are endlessly friendly and helpful. The savoury tofu pudding is an unusual starter served with peanuts and seaweed, making for an intriguing mix of flavours and textures – there’s a sweet version on the dessert menu, too. The more adventurous can try sambal eggs, which are deep-fried and served with anchovies. There are a few interesting main tofu dishes, served with fish fillet and pork belly or dried shrimp and aubergine. The signature Malaysian dishes are particularly appealing, especially the roti canai (pancakes) with chicken curry and curry laksa noodle, with pork, fried tofu puffs and egg. The dessert menu is eye-popping with intriguing choices including black sesame soup, matcha ice-cream and red bean and black sticky rice available to sample. Finish off with a refreshing matcha latte.
