Satay has always been one of Malacca's trademark, not only satay celup (which I will be blogging later) alone but also pork satay that shall not be missed! Few of the famous ones would be Sun May Hiong Satay House @ Jalan Kota Laksamana or Xiang Ji Pork Satay @ Jalan Portugis.
After the Klebang Coconut Shake session, we ventured all the way to Bertam Ulu, a remote area located 15km away from Malacca Town just to have their porky satay for dinner. This place is quite renown among the locals from Masjid Tanah.
|I assumed it is a family business and the stall was operated at a large compound in front of a single storey house; Chuan Seng 泉成.|
|One of the best satay peanut gravy I've ever tasted, I kid you not. Tangy, sweet, spicy and everything nice! It tasted special because of the salted plum (水梅) they added.|
|We had chicken satay, pork satay and pork intestine satay served with chopped cucumber and onions.|
|Not forgetting the ketupats (sticky rice dumplings), best eaten with the oh-so-peanut-licious sauce!|
|Pork intestine satay. No, I don't fancy innards so I just tried a piece of it.|
|The heavenly porky satay! What more can I say? The meat was tender and well marinated, grilled to perfection with crisp, slightly burnt edge (Y)(Y) I have more than 10 skewers of porky satay.|
|Suprisingly, it was the females (young to old) from the family who are running the business.|
|The mom and daughter preparing the skewers.|
|Another daughter and the maid BBQ-ing the skewers. The satay are served right away after they are done at the BBQ pit.|
|The raw chunks of meat perfectly skewered.|
|Roughly how the whole place looks like, with Joeann happily photobombing my photo :P|
