Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup Melaka

A visit to Malacca is incomplete without chicken rice balls, cendol gula Melaka and satay celup, right?

satay soup

A boiling pot of satay gravy for you to dip and cook food on sticks is such a novelty that famous satay celup ( or is it spelled sate celup?) restaurants such as Ban Lee Siang at Ong Kim Wee, McQuek, and Capitol Satay Celup are always packed with eager stay celuppers. Some even queue at the sidewalk just to wait for a place!


This was the shop next to Ban Lee Siang along Jalan Ong Kim Wee, by the name Restoran Zhau Jiu or something. Can't quite remember. This is my first time eating at this shop. They have a wider selection of vegetables compared to others. The sauce is not bad as well.


The amount of sticks we took paled in comparison to those sitting at tables next to us. They could simply eat hundreds of sticks!


  1. [...] my previous visit to the shop next to it, I feel compelled to blog about Ban Lee Siang. Afterall, this is always the first choice for me [...]

  2. I love satay celup and I have my fix at least once a week … I have tried all the shops, Capitol, McQuek and Ban Lee Siang and I used to think Capitol was great until I chanced upon a new shop called Satay Celup Nyonya at Taman Melaka Raya, towards Dataran Pahlawan. Their sauce is a little tangy and sweet and it taste just great. Looking back, I think all the other shops’ sauce taste bland in comparison to this nyonya style. Go try and judge it for yourself … and check out their website (I had a hard time to suss their website out)
