My favorite satay place in Malacca "Xiang Ji / Jonker Street Satay". I'm especially fond of the liver and intestine satay.

That was ayam laut? I still remember having ayam laut in the kampung where I lived in Terengganu in the mid 70s. I loved it! It actually did taste somewhat like chicken!

Splendid pictorial by you! Thank you!

SG,

Great stuff!  What're the directions to get to your cousin's place in KL? 

Peter

His place is actually located in Petaling Jaya not KL at the SS2 Hawker center / Glutton's square. His brother is running another branch in Selayang KL I believe but I'm not sure of it's location.

Pan,

I believe it's the same fish, the cantonese name translates literally to "Chicken Fish". My favorite fish for ikan panggang.
