Assam Laksa

Assam Laksa

Assam Laksa is a popular Malaysian fish-based sour noodle soup. It is one of the many varieties of laksa, popular noodle soups in South East Asia. In the course of history, the dish developed into assam laksa that we know today. Regardless of its origin, it's one of the most popular street dishes found in the city, and a favourite with locals and tourists alike.

The dish consists of rice noodles, shredded fish and sliced vegetables, mainly cucumber, onion and lettuce. It has a distinctly tangy flavour, which is due to tamarind, the sour ingredient kindly used to add flavour to the dish.

Chicken Rice Balls

Apart from Assam Laksa and Portuguese food, the chicken rice ball is one of the most revered food in Melaka. Packed in wooden containers, the rice was said to have not lost its warmth or taste when moulded into these balls. It's essentially taking the fragrant chicken rice you know and you love and shape the rice into small little golf ball sizes.

Packed in wooden containers, the rice was said to have not lost its warmth or taste when moulded into these balls. The other explanation is that the shape of the balls made it easier for workers to consume the rice, as the Chinese in olden days ate rice with chopsticks.

Satay Celup

Satay celup is a traditional Malaysian dish, particularly popular in the Malacca state. It is a self-serve dish, consisting of skewers of marinated meat, raw seafood, or even vegetables. The skewers can range from fishballs, shrimps, crabsticks, chicken, pork ball, quail egg, mushrooms and fried beancurd. The satay is later dunked into a simmering pot of satay sauce.

Read More

The sauce is primarily made with peanuts, dried chilli peppers, garlic, and palm sugar, but the recipe varies from outlet to outlet. The concept of satay celup is similar to that of a steamboat buffet. But instead of soup or curry, a stainless steel pot of satay sauce can be found in the middle of the table. Eating satay celup is an experience on its own — diners may only keep the skewers inside the pot for as long as they want, depending on how much they want their skewered food to be cooked.
