Everything tastes better on a stick: Indonesian satay.

During the Congress, the team from Sate Marrangi in Indonesia skewered a mind-blowing 125,000 sticks of satay over five days.

But they're used to big volumes as their once humble stall in Purwakarta, Indonesia, today caters to more than 1,000 customers a day.

The region's signature dish involves marinated, diced beef grilled over charcoal and served with a deceptively fiery salad of chilli, vinegar and tomato.

A brilliant contrast of flavors and textures.

Pochamma, 55, has spent a decade selling it on the streets supported by her husband and son.

"Everybody has a connection to churros. We had a guy whose eyes welled up when he bit into our churros," Isabel said.

"He explained his mom used to take him for churros as a kid in Mexico, but she died last year and he wasn't able to go bury her as he didn't have his immigration papers.

"It was the first time he's tasted them since."
