Satay Customer Eating at Table (Figurine SH006)
Satay is a dish made of marinated meat that is skewered on thin sticks, barbecued over a flaming charcoal fire and eaten with a peanut sauce dip. It was often enjoyed with rice cakes wrapped in fragrant woven palm leaf pouches, called “ketupat.”
In early Singapore, satay was sold by street hawkers called “Satay Men.” The stalls would have low wooden stools for customers, and tables that were crudely constructed from wooden boxes.
This Miniature Stories collectible figurine depicts a Chinese customer enjoying his Satay, peanut sauce and ketupat at the stall. He is seated on a low stool at a small wooden table.
He is best displayed with the Satay seller figurine (SH005) with his portable charcoal grill (sold separately).
