Seafood @ Portugese Settlement

One of the makan(read: eat) spot in Malacca that shall not be missed would be the Portugese Settlement, if you're a seafood lover cause that's what it's famous for! It is located in Ujong Pasir, approximately 5km away from the Malacca City. There will be a row of stalls starting from 1 to 10, the local favourite stalls would be 1 and 7. For drinks, make sure you order your mango juice from Joe’s Only One Mango Juice which located at the far end of stall no 10 as it is recommended by many on 4sq!

Once you arrived, there will be people from each store who tries to approach you and drag you to their stall, which made quite a scene and scared the hell outta me! :O Seriously it is super annoying! Why can't we choose on our own -_-

The jetty opposite the row of stalls. It would be even nicer to come earlier to catch the sunset (: 

Sadly Stall 1 was closed that day so we settled at Stall 8, Restoran De Costa's Portugese Food.  

Underneath pokok kelapa, I will wait for you ~

Otak otak with Sambal @ RM10.00
The otak otak was tasteless; nothing can ever beat Otak Otak from Muar. 

Kangkung Belacan @ RM8.00
The belacan didn't even taste like belacan, this dish is utterly disappointing. 

Ikan bakar pari @ RM24.00
I never knew that Ikan Bakar in Malacca has gravy, I was expecting dry ikan bakar with sambal on top. The gravy tasted one kind too, MEH. 

Butter garlic prawn @ RM22.50 (Two person portion)
Probably the only edible and best dish that night. The prawns was crispy on the outside and tender inside, quite fresh too YUMS :9 
Damage of the night would be RM72.50 inclusive of 3 drinks and 2 bowls of rice. I don't think I will come back to this stall again, opt for stall no 1 or 4 instead! Try order fried squid or Portuguese baked fish (:

After the dinner, we decided to enjoy the soothing sea breeze by the jetty since we are unwilling to move around with our full tummy. We then spotted a small stall selling firecrackers, fireworks and sparklers. So Kew bought a small bundle of firework sticks and start playing with it.
Two kids in action :P 

And somehow..... something happened and Joeann burnt herself LOL There's even a hole on her shoe inner pad!  

Kids.. the moral of the story is Don't Play with Fire! :P

The last time I went there and stall 1 was closed we ranaway after the serbu. No point giving business to these kind of persuasions
