Capitol Satay, Malacca, Malaysia.
We wanted to try this satay celup, even though we know it would be a long queue. We queued almost two hours for our table. I can say, we queue for dinner and eat as supper. However, it is still worthy for the time.
Why do I say so? It is still maintaining its original recipe, taste and cooking method. I cannot be sure there is no recycling of satay sauce as per claimed, however, so far after few times of trying it, we did not see them doing so and no “alien objects” was found when the pot of satay sauce was placed on our table.
So, let us start eating, although hungry, I did not take many and still choose a few ingredients that I liked. I liked the beancurb puff and it is able to absorb the sauce very well. I chose the Taiwanese sausage instead of normal chicken sausage and some prawns. It is really filling after a few rounds of dipping.
Location: 41, Lorong Bukit Cina, Malacca, Malaysia.
Ambiance: Small shop, crowded and hot.
Rating: 4/5. Thick, original and authentic satay sauce. Although, it is pricey and long hours of queuing, it is still satisfying.
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 😛
