If you want to indulge in a seafood feast in Melaka, you’re in luck. In this video we visit the small laneway that runs alongside Madam King’s department store on Jalan Bunga Raya for fresh shellfish and head to the Portuguese Settlement for some super fresh seafood.

The alley off Jalan Bunga Raya is a real local’s spot for fresh shellfish. This is street food eating at its finest. Small wooden stools lined up in low tables where people skewer fresh cockles, clams and sea snails before dousing them in a chilli, peanut and sweet soy sauce. Plates of shellfish are cheap and are simply dunked in boiling water for a few seconds before they’re placed before you. We also sample the sotong kangkung which is a must eat! Water spinach, slices of boiled squid, peanuts, cucumber, sweet soy and sambal make up this mouthwatering dish. It’s delicious!

Our second stop is the Portuguese Settlement. The Portuguese were in control of Melaka in the 1500 and 1600s. The food that is served today is a mix of Portuguese and Malay and features a lot of aromatics such as lemongrass, chilli, galangal, ginger etc. We order a Portuguese baked fish which is butterflied and topped with a thick spicy sauce, garlic butter prawns and some vegetables. We visited the Portuguese Settlement on a Monday night so the atmosphere was lacking a bit. The seafood however was very fresh. It pays to know which stall you’re heading to (there are around 10 stalls) as by waiters from each restaurant will approach you as soon as you arrive. We simply told them we had a reservation at one of the stalls and they moved on pretty quickly. We chose to eat at J & J Corner (Stall 10) as we heard the family catch their own fish to supply the restaurant and have been in business for many years.

Where we ate:

Tong Bee’s Stall (the one on the right as you walk in which has low tables and stools)
