Medan Ikan Bakar Muara Sungai Duyong
Ikan Bakar or grill fish is very famous in Melaka mainly due to its proximity to the Straits of Melaka where fresh seafood is in abundant supply. One of the famous Ikan Bakar restaurant I frequently visits is Medan Ikan Bakar at Muara Sungai Duyong.
Right Beside the Sea
This restaurant is owned and run by Malay boasting super fresh seafood with simple decor. More than 20 different types of seafood are readily available ranging from fish, squid, cockles, crabs, prawns etc.
Fresh fish, crabs and prawns
The ordering process is very simple, you only need to select the types of seafood and cooking method. The waiters will weigh the selected seafood in front of you and confirm the order and pricing on the spot.
There are more than 10 cookings method on offer including the classic charcoal grill, marinated grill, sweet sour, oyster sauce stir-fry, chili paste stir-fry etc.
Cockles & Various Shell Fish
The specialty here is the Nasi Lemak or rice cooked with coconut milk and served with chili paste. Instead of serving white rice, packets of nasi lemak will be served. Each packet only cost a paltry 60 cents and one can easily consume 3 packets or more.
We ordered fried kampong fish, sweet and sour fish, fried calamari, chili prawns, and grilled crabs. All dishes are very tasty and fresh.
Sweet & Sour Fish
The special sauce which is made from Malay sweet soy sauce, green chili paste and fresh shallots topped with calamansi lime juice is heavenly.Special Sauce
Do expect a healthy crowd especially on weekends as the seafood on offer is highly affordable. Our seafood feast that fed 10 person below only cost RM150+ inclusive of drinks (5 fresh coconuts and softdrinks).

How to get there: Drive into Jalan Bandar Hilir, turn left into Jln Bukit Senjuang, turn a sharp right (just before the roundabout) into Lorong Bukit Senjuang (goodness don’t drive up into St. John Fort), turn left into Jln Hujung Pasir (past Portuguese settlement), Jln Padang Temu, past Tan Kim Hock hotel, Newton Food Center (I find the food there ok), into Pasir Ujong, past a major cross junction, after awhile you will reach a concrete bridge – that is Sg Duyung flowing underneath it – slow down and turn right immediately just after the bridge, there is a signboard telling you of Suana Sungei Duyung.
