Everytime we head back to Malacca, we’ll try our best to head down to this ikan bakar place at Permatang Pasir. This is a hidden treasure, situated at the river mouth of Sungai Duyung you know you will definitely get good seafood here.
Soo close to the river mouth that the Malacca goverment actually had to put a sign warning patrons to be careful if they see any crocodiles. And I think I did see a baby one at the river bank. I’m not kiddin. But not to worry, they can’t climb up the embankment cause its too steep. Its more to warn us humans not to harm the crocodiles when we see them.
Remember to come early to this place becausae it tends to get quite pack. Its a very open concept with an indoor area and an outdoor verandah area. Its very airy and breezy as there’s no walls or windows. You get the fresh sea breeze.
First you start off by picking out what kinds of fish, prawns, squids, mussels, la la…etc you want to eat. You can be assured that these are fresh from sea/ river (especially since you are dinning beside the source of supply).There are many to choose from. The guy at the counter will give recommendations and also weigh and take your orders.
After choosing your choice of seafood, you can choose what kind of flavouring you want to go with. You do so by choosing from a signboat on the wall. As you can see there’s quite alot of choices.
Another difference is that you don’t eat this just white rice but with nasi lemak! and not forgetting THE SAUCE. Look at the picture you know this tastes soooooo good. From what I can decipher, its a mix of black sauce, diced green chillies, onions and lime juice… MmmmMmmmm. ( Are you drooling yet?)
As you can see, lots of food. So good, so stuffed after. But it was just awesome. I love coming here. And the prices are reasonable too look at the breakdown below.
Bear in mind we had at least 2 packets of nasi lemak each, I think my uncle had 4. So you can just imagine how good it is. If you can find your way there, please go. =)
