Melaka is a haven for gluttons i tell you. Being born and bred here, i can only be proud (if that's even worthy to be proud of) of the food they have here. Really its crazy. Correct me if i'm wrong. Besides Peanang, I should think that Melaka is next in line for its notorious reputation for good food. You think people come here to shop? No. You think Singaporeans come here to visit the zoo? No.
Amongst their most famous dishes are the cockles and prawns. They have SO MANY type of cockles to choose from! From the normal ugly bloody siham type right up to exotic bamboo lalas and some i never see before also. Feels a little like Fear Factor.
Their satay prawn is the signature dish. As you can see, satay sticks were shoved up the asses of these yummylicious huge ass prawns and they are baked till sedap sedap. It's a compulsary order for every visit!
I wish i can take more pics of the cooked dishes but my dad and sisters couldn't keep their paws off the food. Everytime a new dish arrives on the table, it gets half eaten already before i can even switch on my camera. By the time i'm ready, the food is too fugly to be cammed. Grrr!!
But the fish is sooooo good i tell you. It is wrapped all over with banana leaves and they are baked until the leaves gets.....burnt. Of course. Now it looks really ugly on the outside, but when you open the leaves up....oh my lord. That's a living proof that there is a God out there and He loves us all!
The cooling coconut drinks compliment well with the spicy Ikan Bakar as well. Its a very hot favourite among custumers. Personally, i'm not really a big fan of coconuts. I still prefer my sirap ais anytime but you can see at least 1 (if not more) coconut with a straw on every table around. You can visibly see the mountain of coconuts decreasing in numbers as you sit down and eat. The boy chopping coconuts like he's in trance. Don't you dare play peek-a-boo with him when he's holding that foot long parang i tell you. Silap silap your head also can put straw inside...
So the next time you drop by Melaka, do bring me for a treat and i will bring you to the best hidden treasures that you won't find on your own. Motif sangat. Ha ha ha ha!
