Name any local and international celebrities that you can think of and most of them would have been, or at least heard of Medan Ikan Bakar Muara Sungai Duyung including the world-renowned martial artist – Jackie Chan. Yes folks, even the man himself has been here and it takes a bunch of escorts to control the massive crowd. This used-to-be hidden gem is situated in Jalan Padan Temu, Melaka, specifically along the straits of Melaka. The travelling to get there may be quite a hassle with its accessibility only through driving and out of the normal course, however it will be worth every sweat and penny there is.
The first few steps into the place would be welcomed with fresh seafood on display for customers to pick on and later be cooked. The choices range from red snapper fish, seabass fish, prawns and even bamboo clams either to be grilled or fried. With the taste of freshness emitting the dishes, seasonings and spices are unnecessary. Hence, most of cooked seafood would be matched with their infamous sambal or tempting soy sauce with lada at the side. One of the must-haves is the fried calamari apart from their grilled fish with texture alike of a sweet, chewy, and tender feeling. Fresh cockles are also not to be missed as crowds are very pleased with them. Everything may sound as if it’ll cost you an arm and a leg but to a surprise, the prices are beyond reasonable considering the amount and consistency of food you will be served – this place is an exception!
