Places where I travel
Melaka is another state down south is famous for some street food. There is one particular dish which is very famous is Satay Celup in Melaka. It is one of the food that must have. There area few stalls, and Capitol Satay in Melaka is one of the most famous one. Be prepare to queue for at least 1 hour for normal days and if it is long weekend, it could be from 2-4 hours.
This place is only 5 minutes walk from the famous Jonker Street.
This is my third visit to this stall over past 3 years. It is average about once a year, which is also the longest queue for me by far. I was luck to visit this place during my working trip on weekdays and it takes less than 30 mins to get a seating. As the picture above, it is on weekend and I reach at 5.30pm. Waited for about 40 minutes for a table.
Like any other best satay celup in Melaka, you are free to pick any ingredient from the fridge. It is all calculated base on the sticks that you have. Also each stick are painted different colour to indicate the pricing.
The bread is amahzing. Do grab a plate of it. The rest is up to your liking. It is rather simple for a squence over here. Grab a tray, pick the item/skewers that you like and put it on your tray. You can come back multiple times till you are fully fed.
For every famous satay celup in Melaka, they got their own secret recipe. For this outlet is their peanut and the last can on the right. That’s their secret mix of spicies powder.
The will mix a large bowl of the spices and peanut and pour it into the mini pot right infront of you. Do note that on and off there will be some one coming to your table to stir on the pot. This is to prevent the peanut from sticking at the bottom.
Lets dig in. each stick is from RM 1 onwards. So look at the price board next to the fridge. Average per pax here is about RM 15- RM 20 per head.
Satay Celup is consider one of the Top 10 street food in Melaka that need to have if you are here. I second on that. However I find that the quality of this shop, the taste had changed. I felt that year 2018 and before, it taste much better. The fragrant of peanut, spices and others are more prominent.
Another that I used to go is Restaurant Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup.
