While Sate Kampar doesn’t have an opening date just yet, there are plenty of reasons to look forward to this new restaurant opening.
Eater highlighted five of the reasons why Sate Kampar is so noteworthy, including the tradition, technique, authenticity, coconuts and location. Owner Ange Branca is originally from Malaysia, so expect to see some traditional Malaysian dishes from her hometown.
Here’s an excerpt:
Saté Kampar will have a bar even though it’s BYOB, and no, it won’t be a food bar. It’ll be a Malaysian coconut bar. An entire bar with one item for sale: a Malaysian coconut with a straw. Ange hopes to bring a “machete man” from Malaysia to hack open coconuts for diners, but if she can’t find the right talent, a coconut with a straw sticking out of it will be just fine.
Also worth noting is the wine tasting room from Buckingham Winery that’s expected to open next door to this restaurant.
