The satays here at Xiang Ji Satay House had a nice lean to fat ratio; they were tender, juicy and flavorful. I especially loved the pork satay, which comes with alternate chunks of meat and thin strips of fat. The fats were nicely crisp, as they get grilled over the hot charcoal embers.
The charcoal stove grilled pork skewers were spot on, well marinated with a cut of fat sandwiched in the middle that provide sufficient “moist” to the palate. I like the peanut sauce with appetizing hint of sourness (pineapple is added, I assumed again LOL) and would beat the Kajang satay’s peanut sauce.

My overall verdict.. well, go try this satay out if you are visiting Melaka, and am a fan of pork or pork satay. It's worth trying out once, at least. And if like me, you might come back for the pork intestine satay! :)
With the charcoal fire roaring away assisted by the Uncle's hand powered fan, my order was quickly grilled up. We could not resist the smell of the satay even though we were stuffed from the luncheon so we each have a few sticks. Whoaaaaa so nice and fragrant even without the peanut dip! There isn't much fatty parts but yet each bite is tender and are well spiced with amongst others lemongrass and tumeric.

Succulent skewers of pork, grilled to perfection, served with peanut sauce with chunks of pineapple. Pork satay is not commonly available in other states in
