17 March 2022

Indonesian Culinary, Sate voted 14th of CNN's World's Most Delicious Foods

Jakarta, March 2022 - Sate or "satay" is a national dish originating in Java and ranked 14th of the world's most delicious dishes in CNN's World's 50 Most Delicious Foods survey in 2011.

Archipelago presents a special satay menu in its hotels during March and April as a form of pride in the archipelago's culinary wealth, as well as to introduce it to a wider audience.

Sate Padang, Sate Lilit, Sate Komoh, Sate Ayam (chicken), Sate Sapi (beef), Sate Kambing (mutton), Sate Kere, Sate Klatak, and Sate Domba (lamb) are some of the Indonesian satay served at selected hotels. Aside from the traditional satays, hotel chefs also crafted satays with unique flairs, such as Rendang Satay at Quest Hotel Simpang Lima Semarang, Iga Maranggi Satay at The Alana Solo, and 1 Meter Satay at ASTON Canggu.

Indonesian satay is often served with kecap manis – a sweet soy sauce, or peanut sauce and accompanied by lontong, a type of rice cake, though the country's diversity has produced a wide variety of satay recipes.

Furthermore, satay has historical significance. Due to a large number of Arab and Muslim Tamil and Gujarat immigrants from India to Indonesia, the word "sate" or "satai" is thought to have originated in Tamil. Sate is said to have been invented by street food vendors in Java in the early nineteenth century.

"The history of Sate is impressive. Founded in Java in the 15th century with influences from India, it has evolved into one of Indonesia's national dishes and one we should be very proud of. Indonesia has created some truly delicious variations, and Sate is a culinary heritage that must be preserved. This is why we have chosen the Sate theme as a promotional menu in our hotels for March and April; we want our guests to enjoy a true Indonesian culinary experience," said John M. Flood, President & CEO of Archipelago.

Satay is no longer just a street vendor's food, in keeping with the times, satay has evolved into a food that can be enjoyed by the elite and served in top restaurants.

"Satay is a cooking method in which meat is skewered, barbecued, and then seasoned. The roasted ingredients can range from pieces of meat to minced meat pressed on a skewer, sausages, meatballs, and so on. Yakitori from Japan, Shish Kebab from Turkey, and Shashlik from Caucasians are all dishes similar to satay. Many of our hotels serve an international satay menu, fitting in with our March & April theme," Winston Hanes, Director of Operations Archipelago added.
