Satay Celup in Melaka - I wanna try!

Pity ... Main Sai Hiong was closed when we visited. I have yet to have my FIRST satay celup! There's always next time :-)

Wikipedia has an entry about this!
Sate Celup or Satay Celup (Steamboat Satay) is a dish where an assortment of raw and semi-cooked seafood, meat and vegetables on skewers are dunked into a boiling pot of water and eaten with sauces that are similar to the ubiquitous satay sauce but made with a variety of different ingredients.
Satay celup is popular in Malacca (historical city in Malaysia). Many tourists and locals consider satay celup a favourite because there are more than 80 types of seafood and vegetables to choose from and the sauces are thick and aromatic. Moreover, the food is always kept fresh in huge refrigerators or on shelves of cold storages in food courts.
Satay celup is sold at prices that start as low as 50 cents in Malacca where delicious food is easily obtainable at cheap prices. Drinks soft-drinks often accompany the meal due to its hot and spicy flavour, coconut water or chinese herbs tea will be a good combination.
Satay celup is sold in a self-service mode, and as soon as seats are picked by customers, food can be immediately taken using trays provided.
