Malaysian Adventure: Satay Anika : Brunswick East

I love Friday nights. It’s my night off from the kitchen; yes no slaving over a hot stove for me. Instead we usually take the boys out for an early dinner, which can be anything from fish ’n chips to Indian, sushi or pizza. We have a wonderful variety on offer in the busy restaurant strip which is conveniently situated around the corner from our house. This particular Friday night we chose to have a quick Malaysian meal for dinner.

We’ve actually dined in Satay Anika many times as it’s our “local” Malaysian restaurant. We don’t even have to look at the menu anymore as we always end up ordering the same thing. To begin with it’s a round of Roti Bread, Chicken and Beef Satays with extra peanut sauce and Spring Rolls. Mr 3 loves Spring Rolls, especially the plum sauce they come served with for dipping. Also the Roti Bread doesn’t last long on the table and is devoured within minutes, kids and carbs hey!

For us big kids we also have some family favourites. I’m a Laksa fan and always get the Seafood Laksa which is filled with fish, shrimps, bean curd and bean shoots. My favourite part is the mild curry soup they are all floating in – l could drink a bowl of the creamy coconut soup just on its own.

Hubby goes for the more manly selection of Beef Rendang Curry with Malaysian Noodles washed down with a few Singa beers.

I guess what we love most about Satay Anika is that it’s a casual place to take the family that has a simple fit out and provides a relaxed atmosphere. It’s been a local of ours for years and that’s why we keep returning. The bill always comes back relatively cheap and our tummies always leave very full. For a no fuss Malaysian dinner with the family that’s full of flavour and value, check out Satay Anika. The Roti Bread gets a BIG thumbs up by Mr 3 - now if that’s not an incentive to visit l don’t what else is!
