|Spicy Satti @ P50.00 per serve|
After I received my "travel order" to Zamboanga City, my birthplace, my hometown (thanks for the free trip), I immediately called up my older brother and told him that I am coming over and asked him to take me to a “Satti House”. The last time I had this spicy spirit kicking dish was years ago. I can’t really remember the exact figure, and I almost forgot that this delicious dish has ever existed.
Satti is a local dish that is served with puśo (wrapped rice), sticks of roasted beef or chicken meat + overflowing with thick hot and spicy curry chilli sauce that is usually served early in the morning. You can rarely find satti available by lunch time.
Anyway, we (my boss + 1 colleague) arrived on Tuesday July 30, 2013, 8AM on board Cebu Pacific from Cagayan de Oro City. My brother was supposed to picked me up at the hotel around 9AM and go directly to “Satti House”, unfortunately our schedule had changed, my boss asked me to stay for a while because were meeting one of our applicants and later had our lunch at Alavar Seafood Restaurant were we had the famous curacha.
The satti feast was slashed off that day. I thought I won’t be able to eat what I’m craving for during the trip because the only opportunity we had was on the first day, the 2nd day will be devoted to main purpose why we went to Zamboanga, a whole-day business meeting and then fly back to CDO on the 3rd.
But guessed what? Good luck was on our side, because our business meeting host fetched us at the hotel early morning before the meeting and brought us to Andy’s Satti in Tetuan, Zamboanga City. All smile for me! Lol I thought I had a no-satti trip but I was wrong! Woot hooo!
Satti is really a famous dish to locals and tourists. From Christians to Muslims, students, workers to those who had hangover, satti is the most satisfying and energizing breakfast. So if you are in Zamboanga City don’t forget to try the spicy satti and I’m sure it will really perk up your day!
