Maslina Mahi began her journey to Copenhagen to accompany her husband for work. Thanks to her passion for cooking, she thought of the opportunity to sell satay. Situated at Reffen Street Food, a tourist hotspot featuring over 40 food stalls, Mahi is the only Malaysian to be granted a one year contract to open her stall there. According to sources, she decided on selling satay because she regards it as an “international soul” that can be eaten by various ages and races because the main ingredient is meat.
How did Mahi introduce the delicacy to the locals there? And why did it become a hit every time someone visited the Reffen Street Food? Well, she fulfilled their curiosity by offering samples for food testing to potential customers. Mahi stated that the locals there liked her peanut butter while Malaysians in the country loved her satay more! In order to suit Danish tastes, she sometimes substitutes ketupat with salad. If you are visiting Reffen Street Food in Copenhagen, you can choose to have the set of four, six or 10 satay sticks from the menu. These sets come with a side of cucumber, ketupat and peanut sauce and are priced from 60 to 100 Danish kroners (RM37.67 to RM62.79). If you are planning to visit her stall in Copenhagen, do note that her operating hours are from 11 am to 10 pm daily.
