After much hesitation, finally made our trip to Capitol satay celup for dinner. Was quite apprehensive about the hygiene of the satay sauce initially but still decide to go for it after seeing all the buzz about it on the web. What exactly is satay celup ? It's food skewered in wooden sticks, dipped in boiling satay sauce and cooking it. Same concept as steamboat except they substitute the broth with satay sauce and the food is skewered.

We reached just before dinner time is supposed to start but you can already see people queuing up, waiting for their tables. It is fully packed on a weekday and I secretly thought to myself that is must be one of those overhyped places again. By the time I leave, I'm starting to think otherwise and that I actually ate more than the person who suggested heading over for dinner, haha !

The satay sauce, which they will mix with grounded peanuts after serving to the table. Scoops and scoops of it. The sauce coming to a boil.

Mostly beancurd stuffs that we've picked from the selections available. Oh, I especially love dipping the 油条in the sauce. Besides all these, they have seafood and meat on the menu as well.

The tau-kee bathed in satay sauce. Can't stop eating once you get started.

A nice sunset along the Straits of Malacca to round up the day, tiring but yet satisfying. 

Food: 7.5/10
Price: 7.0/10
Service: 6.5/10
Conclusion: For those who can look beyond the hygiene level of the satay, it's a definite must-try for those visiting Malacca. I'm not sure if the sauce would be recycled or they would prepare a new pot of it for the next customer, but each time they will remove and replace the pot. It's anybody's guess but I suspect its the former. Would drop by again on my next trip there. Recommended.
