Satay Celup @ Restoran Ban Lee Siang, Melaka

This place was really crowded to the brim when we went. Satay celup is apparently a Melaka specialty, and very popular too.

We could see many people waiting for a seat.

What I liked about this experience was selecting my "satay" from the row of refrigerators.

Here's what we picked for round 1. Lots of quail eggs to satisfy my quail egg madness.

It's a lot like lok lok, but instead of cooking in boiling water, the lot gets dipped into this thick, bubbling cauldron of peanutty curry gravy instead. The pot is embedded within a hole right in the middle of the table.

A unique experience, but only if you like peanutty gravy.

Been to this place once and there are only certain stuff that goes well with the peanut gravy like the fried cruller and deep fried foochuk.
