[QQ CAFE NO LONGER PROVIDES SATAY CELUP, BUT THEIR HOTPOT "STEAM BOAT" IN BUFFET STYLE IS STILL SELLING HOT!!! NEW FOOD REVIEW FROM FOODIOTKK TO BE RELEASED SOON, STAY TUNE!] -updated on 22/12/2012
Now you can eat Melaka signature food Satay Celup in KK too!
The newly opened Cafe QQ at Damas 118 Plaza just opposite the Grand Millennium Plaza, Jalan Penampang Bypass (Jalan Pintas Penampang) offered something different to food lover here. For those who never try Satay Celup, this is actually a skewer of meat or seafood, like a stick of "lok-lok", but instead of cooking in boiling water, we dipped the skewer in a pot of boiling peanut sauce.
Yes, peanut sauce. Like the satay sauce, but thinner.
How's the taste? I've just tried the original version in Melaka last month when my girl friend & I went there for vacation. However, after waited for more than an hour on the queue we simply lost the appetite. Some more the herbs in the peanut sauce was way too strong until covered every other taste. What a big disappointment for us on the legendary Satay Celup.
Despite this unpleasant experience, BigFish & I decided to give it a try at Cafe QQ's Satay Celup after we saw the big banner outside the restaurant: The 1st Satay Celup in East Malaysia! And Cafe QQ convinced us that Satay Celup is still good. We will definately give it a try again. Now let's see how Satay Celup looks like:
You can see this from the Grand Millennium Plaza (CKS Supermarket)
Stuffed crab with minced pork
A lot of choices from seafood to meat
I like the sauces too! Chillis and sweet sauce
Fresh prawn and crab
We tried the crab and its still very fresh. You can taste the difference if they use frozen crab.
Ms. BigFish and I
This is how Satay Celup looks like!
Roasted peanut in the sauce. It tend to turn salty after awhile, I got no idea why.
QQ Cafe offers buffet style Satay Celup and steamboat for RM22 per person. Worth it but try to avoid peak hour! An advice to the boss: Try to control the work flow, customer never expect the word "finish" at early hour (btw it was just 7.30pm!). Although in a good manner, it disappoint people.
Oh ya, they are on Facebook too!
