We already have plenty of good food options on East Passyunk Avenue, so why not add some more unique cuisine to the lineup? That’s where Sate Kampar comes in.
This new restaurant is a Malaysian sate, set to open at 1837 E. Passyunk Ave. in the Bottle Shop’s former location.
The restaurant’s name comes from owner Angelina Branca’s hometown in Malaysia, Kampar, and sate is the skewered and grilled meat dish that tends to be referred to by the spelling “satay.” Regardless of the spelling, this spot is something new and different for the avenue.
More from The Insider:
Angelina says Americans are comfortable enough with sate – it’s an appetizer staple everywhere – but to her, it’s prepared incorrectly here.
“I’ve only seen it done on a gas grill or on a broiler,” she said. “To do it right, you have to cook it over coconut shell charcoal.” She said she also has the marinade down right.
There’s no specific time frame just yet for when Sate Kampar will open.
