IKAN BAKAR PARAMESWARA IN UMBAI, MELAKA

I have always wanted to make a trip to Umbai and try the ikan bakar and  seafood but each time this plan was put aside or postponed simply because there is no more space in our tummies after a heavy food trail. So, this time,  I make sure this trip is materialize despite feeling full after an early dinner.  

After alighted from our car, we walked around and noticed there were few stalls selling dried food stuff and lots of seafood restaurants with no sight of customers at all. As we walked further inside, we saw a crowd in Ikan Bakar Parameswara which is nearby the river. Our instinct immediately tell us, good food is here BUT... read on to know more.


eye catching menu & number stands
assorted fresh (not so fresh) seafood and greens....
expensive price tag
plates of fresh cockles

fresh squids

BBQ cockles...

sauces for dipping
both the sambal chillies + dark soya sauce.. good combo of sweet,sour + spicy


Fish Otak-Otak (0.70 cents each)
While waiting for our order to arrive, this basket of hot grilled fish otak-otak  was placed on our table. My mom lamented it tasted sweet, bland and without any fish meat. We couldn't agree more!


Nasi Lemak Bungkus (RM1.20 per pack)
We saw this basket of packet nasi lemak on an empty table next to us. I took a packet, unwrapped it and put a spoon of rice + sambal into my mouth. Totally upset. Not only the rice was tad plain but there is no flavour at all except spiceness in the sambal.  My mom gave a nod.


Fried Squid Rings (RM18)
Earlier, my mom had picked a medium size fresh squid (RM18) from the ice box and was recommended to try this dish. My friend who are not a fussy eater commented that the squid is tough and not chewy at all. All of us smile and gave him a thumb up.
BBQ Cockles (RM6)
well cooked and I like it but others prefer half cook with blood  

Asam Pedas Cencaru (RM4.80)
Unlike Penang Asam Pedas , you can't find bunga kantan and other fresh herbs in this staple. Surprisingly, the gravy is fragrant and thick and helps me to clean up my packet of nasi lemak.

Overall, we were not satisfied with the food here except the asam pedas. 

next....umbai at nite
