Kwong Satay traces its roots to the 1960s when the grandfather of Mr. Wong Chee Kwong peddled satay from a trishaw around the Katong area. Two decades later, Mr. Wong Chee Kwong continued the family tradition when he started selling satay at Lorong 29 Geylang, which is now our flagship stall. As the business grew, Mr. Wong expanded into the manufacturing and wholesale distribution of satay, satay sauce and ketupat (satay rice cake) at Bukit Batok Crescent, Enterprise Centre and Kwong Satay counts more than a dozen hawker stalls and eateries in Singapore among our regular clients now.
Today, into its fourth generation, Kwong Satay proudly continues this heritage with no changes to the original recipe. Which is what makes our satay outstanding – the use of our original Hainanese recipe, in both our satay marinate and sauce.

As a result, in order to make vegetarian meals more appealing to the locals, he began researching and recreating food that would suit our palates.
Upon first look at the satays, you would probably forget they’re actually vegetarian! Made up of soy protein, the satay “meat” has the charred bits just like the real one which gave a pleasant crunch with every bite.
