Road­side Cockle Stall 126 Off Jalan Bunga Raya.

Look for the tiny lane off Jalan Bunga Raya and be­side Madam King’s depart­ment store. Eat­ing here re­quires a cer­tain amount of courage due to the zoom­ing mo­tor­cy­cles and seem­ingly less-than-hy­gienic en­vi­ron­ment. Nonethe­less, the clams, cock­les and sea snails are boiled up and served with a mouth-wa­ter­ing com­bi­na­tion of chilli sauce, sweet sauce, lime juice and crushed peanuts. This spe­cial sauce is the main rea­son for the end­less stream of cus­tomers. Take a seat on the tiny wooden stools, keep out of the mo­tor­cy­clists’ way and en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Medan Ikan Bakar Muara Sun­gai Duyung KM4-5, Jalan Padang Temu, Per­matang Pasir (012 636 2339).

Seafood is a must-have in Malacca

and this place, lo­cated near the Straits of Malacca, is a good choice. Match your cho­sen seafood to your pre­ferred cook­ing style. The restau­rant also of­fers nasi lemak and a se­cret sauce just for the seafood. The deep-fried squid, crunchy on the out­side with a springy bite within, is much loved.

Sea Ter­race Restau­rant Stall 1, Medan Por­tugis, Por­tuguese Set­tle­ment (06 283 2611).

If you’re look­ing for fresh seafood, try Sea Ter­race. It’s lo­cated at the Por­tuguese Set­tle­ment and the grilled fish, otak-otak and fried cala­mari are es­pe­cially popular. Make sure you try the salt-baked crab, which lets you en­joy the real, unadul­ter­ated taste of this del­i­cate meat. This is a pleas­ant place right next to the sea to dine with the breeze in your hair. A word of warn­ing though: Be pre­pared to wait.


Um­bai Grilled Fish Float­ing Vil­lage 296A Jalan Petri.

Set amidst a man­grove swamp and with more than 20 stalls of food and bev­er­ages, vis­i­tors will be spoilt for choice at this float­ing vil­lage. All stalls of­fer de­li­cious seafood del­i­ca­cies such as ikan bakar, freshly fried squid and juicy prawns. Prices are not as cheap as you’d ex­pect; th­ese stalls are pretty popular with tourists and can get very crowded.
