Satay is one of the most popular dishes in Indonesia. But these days it’s quite hard to find the original satay because of this “new” satay called taichan. Taichan satay is actually similar to the original satay since both are made from chicken meat. However, unlike the original satay that has brownish color because of the coconut sauce and the grilling process, taichan satay’s meat is white.
