Gerai Seri Melaka, Jalan Bellamy

Ah, yes, the famous ikan bakar (grilled fish) at Jalan Bellamy which some sworn that it's the best in Klang Valley. That right?
Some said it's over hype, while others find it sedap giler..Whatever it is, since I was there recently, decided to write about this place for the benefit of those who have not heard/ tried the ikan bakar. There's a row of ikan bakar stalls there and I'll go to the one in the middle, called Gerai Seri Melaka...
We had ikan keli (catfish), ikan pari (stingray) and sotong (squid). Each of us took our own rice, extra dishes (the stall owner cooked many dishes to go with the grilled fish) and the hot grilled fish was served almost immediately..
Ikan pari came in beautifully, nicely marinated, crispy on the outside, but juicy, sweet and tender on the inside. Still yumz after not eating for a couple of years :)
And nothing, absolutely nothing can stop me from ordering my favourite ikan keli..hehehehe.I was first introduced to ikan keli at this stall and years later, I am still a big fan of ikan keli. Although there's lots of grilled fish stalls that serves ikan keli, I still find thatGerai Seri Melaka serves the most yummy kelis..slurp! The marination is fantastic, crispy skin, fatty, oily, juicy flesh that practically glides down your throat and leave you (well at least for me) begging for more! Have it with their homemade chilli sauce, the combination sure is a killer!
The piping hot sotong was served with jejangut (tentacles) which was quite a large plate for 1 sotong.The texture was springy, but not chewy. Fresh and sweet, this dish was 'cleared' pretty fast. We paid approximately RM39 for the grilled food, rice, extra dishes of a few types of veg and drinks for four people.
What Julianne thinks?
Fuss free and delicious
Gerai Seri Melaka is located at Jalan Bellamy ( behind Istana Negara). Drive pass Alice International School (on your left), for about 5 mins, you'll see the stalls on your left. Operating hours: 10am-3 pm, 6pm- 12 midnight. Close on Sundays. Tel: 019-2892501

My makan club kaki keeps insisting that it's overrated. Looks like I gotta sneak away one day to try the stuff! Very tempting pics!

lyrical lemongrass, ya, i guess some people went with their expectation so high that they get disappointed when they try me, this stall serves one of the best grilled ikan keli (on good days i eat 2 at one go!). close second is terubuk (but too many bones). pari is good, but i have tasted better ones served at other places. side dishes and kuah curry/sambal is average, the (ex)stall at jalan stonor serves the best side dishes (and kuah) to go with ikan bakar
