Malay Satay Hut is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. I can have old standbys or try something radically new off the menu and I am always extremely pleased with the dishes. When trying something radically new, this is a pretty literal statement; the Satay Hut prepares very authentic Malaysian cuisine, much of which can be very strange to the foreign palate. But get over your fears, it's all delicious. To get started without getting ridicuolously adventurous, try the roti, mango chicken/tofu/shrimp (served in actual mangoes!), the salt and pepper baby squid, or my personal favorite, the Buddhist Yam Pot. The BYP is a bowl made of fried taro filled with a delectable mixture of chicken, shrimp, and vegetables in a light sauce (also available vegetarian). Eggplant in basil sauce is also amazing. Portions are substantial and its best to eat family style. The waitstaff is attentive and friendly, but may have trouble explaining what something is in English. But fear not as there are lots of great pictures in the menu! The place will look completely sketchy from the outside to most people as it is in a dingy strip mall on the outskirts of the International District. Don't worry, it's plenty clean and pleasant once you're on the inside.
