Xiang Ji Jonker Satay In Melaka

SINCE WE WERE STILL FULL FROM OUR BUFFET BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL, our friends took us for a light lunch at a non-halal Satay shop called Xiang Ji.  It is located at 50, Jalan Portugis, very near to Jonker Street and just opposite SRJK Pay Teck, a chinese school.  I have never tasted pork satay before, only seen in Facebook people queuing up for the celup satay.  No, I did not go to that... boiling sauce and all that.  My friends took us for these instead....
A very modest shop along Portugis Street... 
Thank goodness no crowd cos of the off peak season... 
Preparations were being made as we entered... 
The sauce is kind of special.. a bit of sweet and sour...
Heard that it is made from either pineapple or "belimbing".... not sure...
And we replenish the sauce several times... 
First round 30 sticks of satay.. followed by another 20 sticks....
Chicken and pork satays... 
They are very thinly marinated... can eat them without the sauce too... 
The meat is tender and I like them cos they are not oily... 
Again, our friends gave us the treat so I don't know exactly how much they cost...
Oh, we had Muar Otak-Otak as well... 
By then I could not eat much, just one piece only... 
And I dipped it into the satay sauce as well.... 
After our supposedly light lunch, we went for desserts... 
My son wanted to get some stuff from Tan Kim Hock .... 
The Melaka Tree in front of the building... 
And since we were there, we tried their Cendol... 
It was supposed to be Durian Cendol but it was not fresh durian...
More like the Dodol mixture... 
And my son said Penang cendol is still the best!
hahhhaa... 
Soon it was 2pm or so, it is time to bade goodbye to our Malacca Friends... 
They dropped us back at our hotel and from there, we parted and went our separate ways.... 
Really thanked them for their friendliness, generosity and hospitality....
Hope we meet again soon, either in Ipoh, Malacca or Aberdeen!

  1. I like pork satay. And lamb satay as well. Better than beef and chicken which could be pretty tough sometimes. As long as they have those fat in the pork and lamb satays, I could eat many sticks! hehehe!

    Ooh, Melaka cendol. Glad I had my dose of Melaka cendol last week. There is an authentic Melaka food outlet over here, so I could have my dose of cendol whenever I want. Post is coming up soon.

  3. Eyewwwwww!!! Tan Kim Hock, no, thank you. Over-commercialised, it has lost its appeal already, not so nice anymore.

    2. No no, proper satay. Immediately I can think of BB cafe (opposite the Sunshine pasar pagi, adjacent to Subway) during lunch time, and in Teluk Kumbar, at here: http://www.realgunner.com/2014/11/restoran-teluk-kumbar-seafood.html

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
