Singapore - Stay Club

Locally here in DFW a Malaysian coworker told me about a good Singaporean restaurant. That led me down memory lane and after a foray on Google I learned that The Satay Club was demolished back in the mid-90s.

A piece of my childhood has died today... or rather it died 15+ years ago and I didn't know it until today.

For those of you that didn't get to visit or grow up in Singapore back before the current century... The Satay Club was awesome. My memories are fuzzy, but this is what I remember.

It was a collection of stalls where guys would cook Satay... skewers upon skewers of it. Every few stalls would be somebody making the peanut sauce. You would show up and eat... and eat... and eat... and at the end somebody would come by, count up how many sticks your table consumed, and you'd pay at that time.

It was carnivore heaven... savory... peanut sauce drenched heaven.

So if I ever get to go back to Singapore again after so many years away... where's a good replacement place?
