Fourteen Ten Agency are pleased to announce the launch of ‘Satay Street Café’ the first permanent site of Satay Street on 21st February following 11 years of trading by the street food business within street markets in East London.
Owner Som Boonchan first launched her Thai street market stall in London’s iconic Brick Lane in February 2009 serving her signature satay following a recipe passed down to her from her mother while growing up in Bangkok.
Over the past eleven years Satay Street has grown and Som and her team have traded at various markets in East London including Shoreditch High Street Market, Petticoat Lane Market, Fenchurch Street Station and Old Street WeWork gathering a loyal following for their signature satay that Som makes daily using fourteen fresh ingredients; turmeric, galangal, lemongrass, lime leaves, coriander, cinnamon, cardamon, star anise, cumin, chilli, tamarind, shallots, coconut milk and palm sugar.
In October 2017 Som finally secured a perfect permanent home for Satay Street Cafe on Goulston Street, located at one end of Petticoat Lane, however it then took another two and a half years to reach an opening date following numerous complications with the local council.
“I am delighted to finally have a permanent home for Satay Street. It has been an extremely difficult process due to the many complications restaurant owners face in London but one thing my mother taught me, as well as her secret satay recipe, is patience and I applied this to the opening process. Having patience for 11 years has proved very trying but the 21st February will be a very happy day for me and I look forward to sharing our dishes to customers in a warmer and more comfortable environment” says Som.
Satay Street Cafe will continue to serve their traditional Satay, along with an extended menu featuring dishes inspired by the vibrant street food markets of Bangkok. Highlights include Som Tam salads, Tom Yam soups and filled buns with prices ranging from £2.50 to £7.95.
The 20-cover vibrant café will offer diners a lively dining experience with high top tables and counter dining allowing guests to watch the action in the open kitchen capturing the atmosphere of Bangkok’s famous street markets.
