Capitol Satay Celup

Capitol Satay Celup at Malacca is one of the famous satay celup places. As early as 5pm, people are start waiting at the road side of the shop to eat satay celup. It is very long queue, I must say. So, it’s better be early if you plan to eat dinner there.

As usual, each table comes with a pot of satay sauce, showed below. For every new customer (per table), they will change the pot and add more peanuts. But, I’m doubt if they will change the sauce or not. It’s not like those little pot for streamboat 🙂

By standard, each person will get few cubes of cucumbers. Not a fancy thing.

And then, you can start picking your dishes that you want to eat from the trays located at the side of the restaurant. Those in the places of different colours are different prices and those in the stick are 80 cents/stick.

Have fun while steamboat-ing in the satay sauce.

We also ordered the coconut and it’s quite nice to drink after eating something so hot burning.

Here, I share some of the old pictures which I took during the first visit to Capitol. The interior design of the shop,

And the queue if you’re late. It can be longer than this. Just stand at the side of the road and wait ya 😛

Donald & Lily

During the recent weekend trip to Malacca, we decided to drop by at Donald and Lily shop for lunch instead of hitting the Jonker street. It is located 2 roads behind the Jonker street.

Before this, there’s some introduction by the public saying that it’s a nice shop with nice food. So, we gave a try.

When we reached there, it was full house. Hmm… sound like the food is nice ya. Then we ordered the laksa and cendol for our lunch.

Inside this laksa there are 2 fish balls, few slices of fish cake, beancurb and vegetables. The taste is not as good as the one from the Jonker street. Just little uhmm… However, it still taste good for me.

The cendol is a little different than the other cendol that I tried around Malacca city. Although, it does not have enough gula melaka (making it less uhm… again), it has a lot of ingredients inside.

I don’t know why there are sago and red beans inside it. Quite different right? Well, it tasted good too. Take less sugar for something special 🙂

Thai Fried Rice

Another try at the Pandan Jaya area. This time is the Thai food stall at Pandan Jaya Food court opposite the flats and behind the wet market.

For non spicy type of fried rice, can try order the Thai Fried Rice in Ladna Style. It has three types of meats inside which are the chicken cubes, squids and prawns. The Ladna gravy is something similar to the Cantonese Fried Noodle gravy except this is without egg.

I ordered the Parprik fried rice from this Thai food stall. The amount of rice is very generous. It costs RM5.00. You can order a large one, just add another 50 cents and 2 person can share it.

Closed up picture of the dish. Inside, it has some sliced chicken, squid, onions, cucumber and 2 prawns.

Just notice the slight differences in presentation for this two fried rice. It has been a year ago when I tried the Parprik fried rice.

Fish Paste Noodle

I tried the fish paste noodle at one of the coffee shops at Pandan Jaya. The coffee shop is located next to the wet market. It runs by a man in his 40s with a helper, can be his wife or an Indonesian worker. The stall is located in front of the Wanton Noodle stall.

This is what I get when I ordered the noodle. The fish paste is fresh and it added some spring onion into the fish paste and into the soup too. It makes it smells nice. The fu chok is an additional from the seller, I think, because I don’t see he giving it anymore now…

If you like the fish head soup based, you can order the same soup based for fish paste noodle. It just costs another 50 cents.
