I have been awfully slow in updating this blog because I am on vegetarian diet since last week and it will last for 40 days. So, there is really nothing special to feature currently. So, let’s go back to Melaka where I went to the Portugese Settlement and see what they offer there.
The horseshoe crab that looks very unique. However, I don’t have the heart to get this creature killed and then, have the eggs removed and cooked into a meal for me. So, I give this a pass. Normally, they take the eggs and make a dish. There is nothing else to be eaten besides the eggs. Kinda cruel to kill baby horseshoe crabs, no? Hahaha, it is just my personal opinion.
Sometimes, I wonder. Do the real Portugese that are still living in Portugal eat that spicy foods? The fish above is really, really hot and spicy. I guess they have Malaysianised the Portugese cooking here.
More hot and spicy foods, the okra cooked in chillies. Kickass and makes you cry.
And another hot and spicy dish. I think this is the otak-otak, if I am not mistaken. My taste buds got too numb to remember.
Well, the crabs are not bad and on par with the ones I had in Penang. So, in all, the dinner treat from my brother-in-law was a rather good one. I am not sure how much it costs but I believe the price is much cheaper than Penang.
So, make a stop at the Portugese Settlement if you are in Melaka. My regular reader, Terence would be able to direct you to the right stall. Hehehe.
