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

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
