Battle of the Dishes

Latitude Eight vs. Flo's Kitchen: Baby, Please Satay With Me!

Satay is my go-to dish at any Thai or Pan-Asian restaurant. Made with chunks of chicken or beef broiled in spices and served with the crack of condiments -- peanut sauce -- it's a dish everyone from picky five-year-old Susie to granny will adore. Yes, I am a peanut sauce addict, but I've been going through nutty detox lately in hopes of further shrinking my waistline.

I made an exception to check out the satay at two heavy hitters: the modern, independently owned Flo's Asian Kitchen in North Scottsdale and Latitude Eight, a classy Thai grill in a historic district.
