we are not a huge "eat off of the side of the road" kind of family... but there is one exception. we love sate on jalan kawi (the name of a road in our city). i have recently decided it is one of my top three favorite places to go to eat as a family.
this is the guy that cooks the chicken on the stick (called sate) on the sidewalk. there is a little seating area behind him; it has white walls, a ton of smoke and about 13 calendars on the wall. we still don't know what the deal is with all of the calendars. :)
the reason i love this place you ask? they have one option for food... chicken sate. you just say how many you want and the food comes fresh off the grill in about 4 minutes. amazing for small children. reason #2 i love it, my kids love the food. i don't have to do any forcing to eat and that is just amazing these days. luke has eaten a record of 11 sticks but usually averages around 8... mind you, i eat 10. :) and reason #3, the food is amazing! the chicken is served with a peanut sauce that is to die for!
oh, and reason #4... we eat for about $2 a person.
mary prefers to eat her rice like a true indonesian, with her hands. :)
