Best Clams in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

The little gems of the ocean! Serve them up for dinner and everyone is sure to be pleased. Clams, or lalas as many fondly call them, can be considered to be a staple ingredient when it comes to seafood. People love them for their delicate but chewy texture and briny taste. The fun of opening them up is probably a big bonus as well! Although Melaka isn't exactly famous for clams, there are still a few places in the area that serve up great lalas.

    Just say 'longkang siham' to any of the locals here and they'll direct you to the place. As unappetising the name is, don't let it get to you too much because if you want nice fresh clams, this is the place to go. Their nutty chilli sauce is probably why the stall has kept up for so long, it's that good! The food is so good you'll forget that you're eating by the longkang.

    This is a famous spot among locals for their share of sihams and lalas. The clams are fresh and plump, clean of any grit as they make sure to prepare all their food well. Their dipping sauce is made of ground nuts and is sweet with a mild tinge of spiciness. Eat them together and you've found yourself a new go-to snack!

    You won't find tourists flocking this place but the locals instead. This unnamed stall has been in the business of serving up fresh and good clams for the past 3 years. With such a cheap price tag, you'll find it hard to believe that you're getting such quality clams! Plump and juicy, these lalas are delicious even without the sauce!

    One of the few top contenders at the Portuguese Settlement for seafood, you're sure to be more than delighted with the food here! Patrons are spoiled with choices as Sea Terrace has a wide selection of dishes on their menu and believe it or not, they're all good! Their clams do deserve a special mention though, simply because you can taste the natural sweetness of the flesh as well as that briny taste of the ocean.

    Located just after another popular stall, you can find fresh clams served with homemade sauce here as well! Their sauce has tinges of sourness to it that makes the fresh clams taste all the better and addictive as well. If you want to eat it for yourself, make sure you drop by earlier or there'll be no clams left!

    It's located after Tong Bee Siham Stall. Their stalls are side by side
