How can I blog about Melaka without blogging about food! Here my list of must try places:
It's along the famous Jonker Street.
You'll notice this place with a long queue for it's famous Assam Laksa.
They close at about 3pm-ish and not opened for dinner. So be there early!
No. 42A & 44A, Lorong Hang Jebat. Melaka, Malaysia, 75200
They serve both Nonya & Western food. Not tried their Western stuff but the Nonya dishes were not too bad.
If you enjoy sitting by the river al fresco style... this is the perfect place to be, very nice ambience.
Donald & Lily's
At the junction of Lorong Hang Jebat & Jalan Laksamana 1.
I forgot to snap the front of the stall but here's one I found online
This was the most satisfying meal I had in Melaka! I ordered the Laksa, Ayam Ponteh (I finished it before shooting... Opps...), and Chendol. And all for RM$12! Cheap and good!
But do take note that they serve different dishes everyday and Sunday has the most variety.
Teo Soon Leong Restaurant
No.55, Jalan Hang Kasturi, 75200 Melaka
The unassuming entrance.
The Oyster Mee is yummo! Definitely a must try.
And the Wanton is not too bad too.
The sambal kangkong & fish was ok. Nothing to shout about.
I like the Yam Paste (Or Nee) though, in fact it's one of their signature dishes.
I'll definitely be back! :)
How Kuai Restaurant
It's at the end of Jonker Street nearer to the Stage. Not towards the chicken rice ball.
The Wanton Mee here is nice.
Capitol Satay Celup
No. 41, Lorong Bukit Cina. 75100 Melaka.
Be prepared to wait for at least 30 mins for this treat. The food here is delish! If you are wondering what the difference between celup and lok lok is, for celup u actually cook the food in boiling peanut sauce but for lok lok you cook it in boiling stock and dip into peanut sauce right before eating.
They only open from 5pm onwards till late.
This really brought me back to the 70s when my granddad used to bring the whole family to eat celup in the hawker center.
That's it for the Melaka
... opps I mean work trip!
