Every now and then someone drops a little secret into conversation, a secret that could change your life. Mr WeeZee might just be one of those life-changing secrets.
I am a huge fan of authentic satay and when a friend casually mentioned that there was a tiny little shop on Stirling Highway that sold freshly prepared chicken and beef satay skewers and tubs of delicious peanut sauce, I was there within 24 hours to try for myself.
Mr WeeZee Satay sticks - so yummy we ate most before I remembered to take a picture
Mr WeeZee quite literally sells only four products: WeeZee sticks in packs of 12 and 25; marinated stirfry (beef or chicken); angel wings (marinated chicken wings); and Yummy Peanut Sauce in tubs of 280g and 450g.
This is a no-frills establishment. Plain yellow walls, no decoration. A counter, a freezer and a fridge. You may even be served by Mr WeeZee himself, who has now been preparing satay for over fifteen years here in Perth. Chances are you have already tried his famous sticks, as he provides satay to many of Perth's top restaurants and catering companies. At his little store in Chelsea Village, or the new shop in Booragoon there is no hot food ready to taste, but you can buy the satay sticks fresh or frozen and the tubs of peanut sauce come frozen.
One of the best things about Mr WeeZee satay is that you can cook them in a variety of ways, and while an open flame BBQ grill is best, you can also BBQ them on a hot plate, grill them in the oven or even cook them in a sandwich press for five or six minutes.
The peanut sauce - which is true to its name of 'Yummy Peanut Sauce' can be used in a multitude of ways including dipping sauce for the satay sticks, as a stir fry sauce, served with salad as a gao gado or even as a topping on hamburgers and hot dogs.
It is all so simple and easy! The meat is locally raised and everything is gluten free. It is so easy to buy and put in the freezer in preparation for your next small dinner or huge party.
I bought a 25 pack of chicken sticks, 25 of beef and two large tubs of peanut sauce for a little over $50. That would easily serve ten people as a decent snack (or a full meal with rice and salad) for $5 a head. A word of caution though, it is a cash only establishment.
I wish I had met Mr WeeZee and his satay years ago.
