Come on into this energy-filled indoor location on Notre Dame run by two cool St-Henri brothers who serve Singaporean street food-inspired fare.
My mouth waters deciding between pillowy soft tofu steamed buns with cucumber, coriander and hoisin sauce (2 for $7) and the larger tofu sandwich smothered in satay sauce and coleslaw ($7). To refresh, a spicy green papaya salad topped with peanuts ($6).
Meat lovers can indulge in skewers (chicken, beef or pork (3 for $7) with a side of satay sauce or the sandwich version ($ 7). On rainy days, it’s all about the Laksa Lemak – a spicy noodle soup with shrimp, fried tofu, quail egg, coconut milk ($8) and don’t miss the garlicky Gai Lan (Chinese broccoli for $6).
The desserts are made by “Mama Kim”, the brothers’ Mom who inspired the whole thing and ensures that her boys keep the flavors right.
Satay Brothers also opens their stand at the Atwater Market in warmer months until the start of October.
