Best Satays in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

Satay is a dish of skewered grilled meat with Javanese origins, and is widely popular all over Southeast Asia. Chicken, beef and pork are usually the three main choices here in Malaysia, and the gastronomy involves the combination of lean and fat cuts marinated with turmeric, giving it a yellow tinge. Grilled over a charcoal flame, satay is usually served with “ketupat” (compressed rice cakes), raw onions and cucumber chunks, and a bowl of peanut sauce for dipping.  Here are the top picks for the best satay in Melaka. The only question is: how many satay sticks are able to fulfill the glutton in us?

    Dating back to 1961, this satay house is a family business that has been passed down for many generations, giving the shop name “Xiang Ji” commemorating their grandfather’s name, the founder of this satay house after its relocation. Prominently known as “Jonker Satay”, this shop serves pork satay and offal satay such as pork intestine and liver too. This commendable satay house has proven that Melaka is not only famous for its “satay celup”. Well-marinated, juicy with a crisp around the edges and chewy at the centre, the pork satay is served with the typical pairing of cucumber chunks and onion wedges, “nasi impit”, and a mellow peanut-pineapple dipping sauce.


    Located one street away from Jonker Walk. Park at your own risk as there is no dedicated street parking.
