Melaka trip- Part 2

Ok after chomping down goodies in Part 1 of our trip in the day, we eagerly waited for evening to arrive as we can have a taste of SATAY CELUP!!!!!!! Yes, it opens only in the evenings after 5.30pm till late at night.

We saved space in our tummies and eagerly made our way to try the very popular local delicacy from Melaka- Satay Celup. There are many popular restaurants in the city selling satay celup, mainly Capitol Satay and Ban Lee Siang, there were others as well that we saw along the way, but I guess not as popular :-)

As we made our way to our destination, we passed Capitol Satay, see pix below! This was the queue around 5.30pm......... OMG right? Heard from people that no matter what time you go, there's always a queue... no way am I gonna wait in line with a big tummy! And hubs will not do that too....

See the long long Q... the shop is small and has only around 12 tables, so each group will have to wait patiently for their turn!

You can see many youngsters who are gamed enough to wait in line for a table at Capitol Satay, not many people with families and kids

After driving for another 5-10 minutes, we arrived at Ban Lee Siang along Jalan Ong Kim Wee.
We chose this over Capitol Satay as we know the wait will be shorter and we just wanna EAT and not wait so long!

When we arrived, we got a table almost immediately!
What a relief :-) Pays to go early....
Ban Lee Siang occupies 2 shoplots compared to Capitol Satay so the waiting time is much shorter, can occupy more customers.
Wasted no time... we quickly adjourned to get what we wanted to eat :-)

The yummy peanut sauce in the middle of the table... before you start eating, someone will come round to top up the sauce and stir in more peanuts to make the sauce thick, yumz..........

Putting our stuffs in to cook!

Can't wait to tuck in :p

The inside of the restaurant, on the right are the fridges where u go and take your ingredients

Satay celup! SHIOK! I love the kangkong... crunchy and delish when coated with the peanut sauce.... *drools*

They serve bread and cucumber slices as well for you to dip in the satay sauce... I love the cucumbers and ordered another plate of it

Darling so happy with the food hehe

All in our tummies! *BURP*... excuse me :D

Boss will come round to count how many sticks you ate

Altogether I counted 44 sticks... not including plates of quail eggs and drinks! :-)
Each stick costs RM0.60 regardless of what you take.
We ordered a few rounds of drinks as we were perspiring the whole time while we were eating, it was a HOT day!
The bill came up to RM40+ which was super reasonable... wish I can be there again relishing the whole experience, right NOW!

There was a long queue outside the restaurant when we finished... phew!

Verdict? Thumbs up!!! 
Damn good and delish............ *slurp* yummylicious!!!!!

Satay celup is a must eat food in Melacca, I reckon. The price is so reasonable. I ate these more than a decade already. I hope I will get to eat these again in future.
