Have you ever heard of Satay Babi (Pork Satay)? Apparently it's very popular in Indonesia and is considered a Malaccan specialty in Malaysia but I have never tried it until my recent trip home to Malacca. Where have I been eating all this time??

Satay Babi at Xiang Ji is insanely good. Instead of beef or chicken, imagine alternate layers of dice sized pork and fat on a satay skewer, grilled on top of charcoal fire and served with delicious pineapple based satay dipping sauce….so good!



See the fat??

This is the hainanese family's shop. They also have pig's intestines satay. Very yummy too!
My mom's family knows them cos she's hainanese and her family used to live in Jonker Road area.

This is Joanne (Miscastob). I wrote to you a long time ago about Melaka food. I'm from Melaka and now lives in silicon valley. My friend just moved to New Jersey from KL. Do you have any good makan places you can recommend? Asian/etc. Thanks.

Sarah and Gan said...

Hi Joanne, which part of New Jersey is your friend at now? I'm more familiar with Jersey City and Hoboken area food.

Edgewater. Her name Elsie. Her email elsieny@yahoo.com. I also gave her your blog's link. How was trip back to Melaka? My parents keeps asking us to go back for CNY. Is there a Costco or Sam's club near your place?

Sarah and Gan said...

edgewater? it's near fort lee so tons of things to eat, especially korean food. Tell her to check out so kong dong tofu soup restaurant on main street in fort lee, mitsuwa food court on river road edgewater (really good ramen -santokah), bonchon chicken wings at fort lee etc. if she drives south to hoboken, there's FIVE GUYS burger, La Isla Cuban restaurants, Grimaldi's, and a bunch of really good italian restaurants. Across the river from Edgewater is Manhattan, even more food :) Trip back to melaka was fun, did a food tour, and have yet to have time to post it here. but lots of eating and our eating continued to bali :) it's really hot and humid back home now though. no costco or sam's club, just BJ wholesale.

miscastob said...

Yup, Elsie said there are many Koreans in her neighbourhood. Thanks for the list. I'll forward her this link. Her hubby is in banking too. For all you know, you could be colleagues. :) Grimaldi's the famous pizza joint, right?

Not sure if you know this place called Moon Luck on Ujung Pasir Road. There used to be many good stalls there. Satay, HK chee cheong fun, satay celop and char kway teow. But the owner sold the land and they are building a condo there now. :( My house is on Jalan Bukit Senjuang so I used to walk there to buy the yummy food. Now I think most of the stalls moved to the hawker centre further down the police station. Did you go to CHIJ? I was there for 3 years b4 we moved to Singapore. I still think the best char siew is from the stall in bunga raya. Even the HK restaurants also cannot beat it.

Sarah and Gan said...

yea moon luck is awesome! I used to eat there alot too. CHIJ is primary school no? I went to IJC for secondary school. is your family still in Melaka? hey look me up on fb lah. will chat more there :) yea melaka raya char siu is amazing, i didn't get to eat this trip :(

miscastob said...

Primary school and kindergarden too. I guess I was there for 5 years then. hmmmm. My family's house still in melaka but everyone is all over. I suppose home base is in SG now. My sis in sydney and me over in silicon valley.
I'll look you up on Facebook. Yaukui too?
