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

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
