Singaporeans like going to Malacca, for two reasons: Eating and shopping! I have to admit I am no exception. Yes, it is a charming, historical town. And yes, I should probably make more of an effort to visit a few of its many museums. But, as I always say, always leave something for next time.
When I was last in Malacca one year ago, I must admit that I did not come back raving about the food. Maybe we didn't go to the right places (although highly recommended, I thought they were over-rated). This time round, I thought that the food was much better.
Capitol Satay in Bukit Cina. I enjoyed the food, and the fun of cooking the items in the thick peanut sauce. Especially memorable was the huge shrimp we ate, which we had to ask specially for. For the record, it was pretty good, even though ratherdifficult to shell and thereafter to eat given the size. It was a memorable meal, but I think one visit to Capitol is enough, the queue is just too much.
So these are my three food recommendations for those aiming to take a trip to Malacca.
