One of the place in Melaka to hunt for food, Jason introduce us this fresh seafood that he constantly visit and now, it is not only famous to local crowds as many Singaporean also drop by this place according to him. The place is about 15 minutes’ drive out from the town area towards very ‘kampung side’ Seri Muara Alai Nasir Ikan Bakar and turn into a small lane with sandy rockies road with paddy field at one side to reach this place. We were advice to start the journey early as it is easily filled up very fast. We reach here at 6pm, so the whole place still pretty empty.
This place is located at Alai and by the eatery place name of HJ Nasir Ikan Bakar (Grill Fish).
Now I understand why they said the seafood here is very fresh, some of the fisherman come back from the straights of Melacca, which is not too far from here and he get all the first hand fresh seafood first.
In a hot weather like this, it is always best to sit outside for more cool wind.
When we move over to this mini stall to order our food, we were spoil with choices, with so many types of fish and seafood available.
Then grill fresh on the pit area. . .
All off us were pretty full from some other food hunt earlier, and make it 2nd last stop before heading back to KL.
Small pack of Nasi Lemak was served which is optional, and decided to give it a try, and it was a let down. The rice was damp, not much fragrant and the sambal look very spicy which is not really.

Fried Squid were really good, fresh squid which is very chewy and the amount of crispiness on the layer of it, just nice and dip it with chili sauce is perfect. We order another round of it.
Spicy Fried Stingray, well prepared with crispy edge on its tail and the meat in the middle is still very soft, and spread with their own homemade sambal on top just right.
They just cant wait .. too hungry again . . as we have seperate the right table are all small eaters including me, and on the left are all heavy weight champion eater.
Grill Kembung Fish with sambal.
Cannot deny that the price here is cheap as we paid around RM 20 per pax after divided out and all of this are in 2 portion and the seafood is fresh. Taste wise, nothing to shout about, yet if like kampung style dining, this would be a place to go after.

KENOT READ YR BLOG AT NITE
makes me hungers
We went to this restaurant because it pops out first in google search. When we reached there, there’s a lot of people so it might be true then.
Unfortunately, the service was bad. we waited for almost an hour before we have our first ordered food on the table. and the rest of the food come one at a time.. and the food was not that great! we’ve tasted way better seafood in other places. we ordered butter prawn and to our surprise, it was not what we used to see all this while. I think they cook literally prawn in butter sauce!! so weird!
The worst part is, we try to give some comments/feedback to the cashier by saying the food was not that tasty and maybe they can improve it. to our surprise, she replied ‘Then, don’t need to come back here!’ ….. such a rude answer! Definitely, we WILL NEVER COME BACK to this place! they don’t know the word HUMBLE I guess!
