Ikan Bakar Bellamy is a best grilled and barbecued seafood you could ever found in whole Kuala Lumpur city. The words Ikan Bakar simply mean ‘grilled fish’ in the Bahasa Malay language. This Place has the best fish grilled and you need to try it!
In Malaysia, where nearly every dish of food comes with a dipping sauce, a spicy paste, a dumping sauce, or a colorful mash of sambal, ‘grilled fish’ here includes so much more than just the name entails.
Every fish on the grill of Ikan Bellamy Seri Melaka is smothered in the restaurant’s own recipe of red Malay-style curry, a traditional curry recipe that comes originally from the Eastern Malaysian coast of Melaka.
This recipe includes red chilies, kaffir lime leaves, and coriander, and you can really taste the lemongrass in it as well.
Finally, the large number of shallots it includes have almost fully caramelized on the heat of that grill, making this curry quite sweet without needing to add much sugar to it at all.
Each fish is dunked, and rubbed in curry sauce. After that curry massage, each fish is then wrapped in a protective, smooth, green banana leaf, and cooked on a pan covered in coconut oil.
Ikan Bakar Seri Melaka also has many pre-made foods to over rice as well (this is called ‘nasi campur‘). The table full of the rectangular stainless-steel trays full of foods that you can choose, they are holding all the curry, veggies, and meat, located at the end of the grilling hot plate area.
