I have always love holidays for the simple fact that I rarely feel guilty indulging in food round the clock. Hmmm...not that I do feel guilty even on a daily basis...but well...I digress.
The last weekend was spent with a short road trip up north to Malacca. Which was basically a eat-and-eat trip and although I am into the Peranakan food (with lots of belacan), I made it a point to try something different this time round.
Having been to Jonker Street a few times in the past year, I vaguely recall this street vendor in his mobile cart displaying a variety of lok lok items for sale. Unfortunately, I could not muster enough courage to dip and eat by the road side.
Armed with my research, the group of six of us took a taxi to Jalan Ong Kim Wee for the acclaimed satay celup, Ban Lee Siang (which I heard is the fierce rival of the other equally, if not more well known Capitol).
Upon seated, there will be a pot of satay sauce ready to be dipped into. And judging from my observation, the pot remains the same pot throughout the night regardless of the different groups of patrons at the same table.
So rule of thumb, no double dipping!
And then you take a tray and pick up from the wide array of varieties at the fridge. There's inlards, fried tau pok, fishballs, sotong balls, prawns, otak, sausages, kang kong etc etc etc to take your pick from!
We also ordered servings of bread and cucumber to dip with the rich satay sauce.
Overall, it was a good dinner with our selected sticks of goodies dipped in its hot pipping satay sauce which is a unique experience from your typical hot pot soup.
However, do go with a sturdy stomach (if you have) since 2 out of the 6 of us did not quite survive the after dinner experience. I did good, as usual.
Till the next holiday,
