Satay Celup Melaka

5 09 2007

This is the continuation of the holiday with my parents 3 weeks ago. We arrived in Melaka at around 3pm. After some rest in the hotel, we headed for satay celup before 6pm to avoid crowds :) Round here, round there… we found Ban Lee Siang before Capitol. So we decided to just drop in.

Ban Lee Siang #1

Ban Lee Siang #2

A vast selection of food items skewered with bamboo sticks to choose from the fridge. Each stick costs only 50¢ so be careful of getting carried away :P

Satay celup skewers

We had oyster mushroom, okra, assorted fishballs, meatballs, squid balls, crab paste, tofu, etc.

Satay celup bread cubes

Additionally, we ordered bread cubes to soak up the spicy sauce and coat with chunks of peanut *slurp*! 50¢ a plate also.

Satay celup

Dump in everything and watch the skewers dance in the bubbling pot of peanut sauce. Once a while, the shop owner’s maid cum servant will interrupt and stirs the pot to prevent peanut chunks from burning at the bottom of it. Occasionally, she’ll pick up lose pieces from the skewers and put on your plate. Hehe

Lorong seafood #1

Lorong seafood #2

After meal, we walked around the area in Jalan Bunga Raya. We came to this dainty lorong that serves up fantastic seafood as blogged by wmw and has been visited by HoChiak! and Taste with Jason programme hosts.

Fish paste noodle

Off Jalan Bunga Raya, a few blocks down after Madam King department store is a road that’s closed at night for a few fruit and food stalls to operate. We had yu kau meen (fish paste noodle?) at a stall in front of Nam Seng coffeeshop. Assorted fish balls and fish paste topped with crispy fried beancurd skin in a bowl of yellow noodle and bee hoon. YuM! RM2.50 a serving.


A bottle of chili sauce to add to the noodle… up to your liking or tolerance :)
