The name Kedai Satay is a familiar one to Indonesians in Melbourne as a reliable CBD joint for those who miss Indonesian cuisine or students living in the inner city who feel lazy to cook dinner one night. Or a place to meet friends for dinner before a football match at Etihad Stadium.

Today I was craving one of the specialties of my hometown of Jakarta, yes Soto Betawi (a beef based broth). My daughter chose a dish for which Palembang city is famous – pempek or fish cakes in spicy marinade. We wanted to try some sweet options on the menu – on previous visits my daughter had introduced a friend to es alpukat-a sweet concoction of milk and avocado-but Kedai Satay does not have coffee, which I like with dessert. This place is casual and informal and like many Indonesian places the service is rather stiff and lacking smiles. But as for the taste, Kedai Satay serves up a cheap and pretty good meal.

Nama Kedai Satay sudah dikenal terutama oleh kalangan masyarakat Indonesia di Melbourne. Lumayan buat yang kangen masakan Indonesia & malas masak. Atau yang mau makan sebelum nonton bola di gelora Etihad. Hari ini aku ingin salah satu makanan khas kota kelahiranku Jakarta, ya Soto Betawi. Anakku memilih makanan khas kota Palembang, pekmpek. Tadinya ingin menciba yg lain tapi mereka tidak menjual kopi, karena untuk makanan penutup aku suka dengan kopi. Dapat dibilang tempat ini bukan formal restaurant, lebih cocok dikatakan kedai. Pelayanan agak kaku & kurang senyum, penataan nya juga sama seperti restaurant Indonesia dalam postinganku dulu. Untuk rasanya cukup enak.
