Kedai Satay Xiang Ji

Okay okay, I know I know. Enough about food in Melaka already... but last one. Saving the best for the last.

Kedai Satay Xiang Ji aka Restaurant Fragrant Pork! (Or at least that what I think reads in the Chinese characters. Xiang Ji is located in 50, Jalan Portugis, just off Jonker Street (Jalan Hang Jebat). You can get there by foot after your tour along Jonker street. Just call 019- 6278868 if you get lost.

I heard a lot about satay babi in Melaka but I was really skeptical when I saw this shop with this guy on the barbecue pit barbecuing for only one table of customers.

*I thought this was supposed to be famous. An empty shop?* I was anticipating for more customers.

Anyway, just sit and the satay babi will be served. No ordering of the satay babi is needed, the satay will continue to be served until you say the magic words "Stop little pit stop. And so the little pit stops barbeqing satay babi". (HAHA! for those who got that, good for you ;p, for those who didn't, go look for foodie fairy tales!) Eat to your heart's or should I say stomach's content for RM0.55 per stick.

This is definitely not to be missed. The pork was well marinated. The heat from the barbecue melted the lard and moisten the pork. The oil slowly fried the meat on it's outer layer till crips generating a slightly burnt aroma along with the fragrant smell of pork. *hmmmmmmm so so good!*

The peanut sauce can serve as decoration. Really. The satay babi was so darn good by itself. Having it with the satay sauce will only spoil the taste of the succulent pork satay.

Empty shop with out of the world pork satay... I will definitely be back for more!

The lard is worse than the bite or whatever it means!


You just said the magic word, "lard"!

The "system" sounds like the one in Ipoh leh...

The word is not fragrant pork la lol, is the boss's name, Jiong Kei in Cantonese. It's always the last character in the name of the owner then with Kei. For example, My name is Siew Ying Quin, so my shop will be Quin Kei.
