A Famosa (Malay: Kota A Famosa; “The Famous” in Portuguese) is a Portuguese fortress located in Malacca, Malaysia. It is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia. The Porta de Santiago,
a small gate house, is the only remaining part of the fortress still standing.
Capitol Satay Celup
Malacca’s Pioneer Satay Celup RestaurantCapitol Satay Celup is one of Malacca’s favourite haunts for a savoury meal with loved ones. This pioneer of the satay celup business in Malacca City is located in Lorong Bukit Cina and is easy to find… just look for a queue of hungry diners trailing out onto the street. For those who are unfamiliar of the term, satay celup or ‘steamboat satay’ is a dish where raw or semi-cooked meat and vegetables on skewers are dipped into a hot pot of thick, spicy peanut sauce.
Open since the 1950s, Capitol Satay Celup is a modest establishment of two shop lots with tiled floors and spacious seating arrangements. Its white walls are decorated with framed magazine and newspaper articles as well as photos of celebrities who have savoured its delicious satay celup. It is the only Capitol Satay Celup in the world, and the restaurant has several signboards scattered on the walls which informs diners of its exclusivity and cautions them against any false duplicates.
