Being the pioneer of Satay Celup in Malacca, the Low family started the Capitol Satay Celup business since mid-1950s where Low Yong Cheng’s grandfather located his tricycle stall neighbouring the Capitol cinema, in which Capitol Satay Celup kept the name until this day.
Distinguishable by its long queue; an insignificant time worn shop that stands in the middle of Lorong Bukit Cina lies one of Malacca’s most celebrated satay celupjoint – Capitol Satay Celup, along with its humble and unrenovated establishment that will bringcustomers back to the 1950s era.
At Capitol Stay Celup, customers are greeted with a prosperousness selection of raw and semi cooked skewers in a refrigerated kiosk at Capitol Satay Celup, these raw skewers are then to be plunged into a boiling hot, aromatic sweet-savoury peanut sauce that will transfuse the freshness of the skewer and the tantalizing taste of the secret recipe sauce.
Due to Capitol Satay Celup’s popularity, the restaurant is usually packed in less than an hour after it opens at 5.00pm. The queue usually last for 30 minutes to an hour during weekdays, while on weekends, it will easily take more than an hour and a half for customers to dine in this delightful culinary cuisine Malacca has to offer.
