  • 15 other food in Malacca to try out - by iloveyummyfood.com

    It's not about Satay Celup or Chicken Rice Balls.  Every now and then each time when I am back to my hometown, I realised there is always an amazingly long queue for these two! But, really!!?? There are just so much more to try out, proud to say- am blessed to grow up here. Here're my sharings.


    01) Restaurant Sin Eng Lock @ Taman Peringit Jaya, Melaka

        

    The restaurant's signature dishes - authentic curry fish head and extremely fresh steamed lala.
    Serving for 4 as per above with a total bill of MYR 114.00
    Not easy to locate as it is not too far and yet not too near to the town. Perhaps GPS can help.

    Restaurant Sin Eng Lock
    363 A, Taman Peringgit Jaya
    75400 Melaka
    Tel: +606- 2834391

    02) Lala Bihun Bukit Beruang ( Lala Vermicelli) Bukit Beruang Melaka



    Here's another hidden gem. The owner runs the business at the back lane of his terrace house. Signature dishes- lala bihun (option of soup or fried). Fresh and distinctive. Other dishes are good too. Warning- you might find it depressing at the cook shouts most of the time to delegate work (at least when I was there)

    No 12, Taman Bukit Beruang Indah,
    75450 Bukit Beruang, Melaka
    Rest on Monday.
    Operating hours 11.30 am - 3 pm for lunch , 5 pm onwards Dinner


    03) Auntry Fatso Re
    staurant at Melaka Raya



    Malaccan would know where to head to for something different! Aunty Fatso's signature dish, cheese bihun with big prawns. The restaurant serves seafood dishes. I love the salted egg steamed tou fu though- distinctive! Crowded during weekends.Serving for 5 as per above with a total bill of MYR 146.80 ( including drinks & rice)

    No 39 Jalan Taman Melaka Raya 30,
    Taman Melaka Raya,

    04) Restaurant Pin Pin Hiong @ Lorong Hang Jebat, Malacca



    A vintage coffee shop located near to Jonker street known for its minced pork longevity noodle soup with offals and it's Hainanese Chicken Chop. Noodles MYR5 per bowl, Hainanese chicken chop at MYR 15.00.

    786, Lorong Hang Jebat,
    75200 Melaka

    05) Yam Rice & Pork Meat Soup @ Restaurant Kok Keong



    The shop has been operating for 70 years or so. Used to be much better during the old days. Not too bad still now. Signature dish pork meat soup, also known as bak kee in Hokkien is similar to our local famous dish- Bak Kut Teh, a Chinese cuisine popularly served in Malaysia and Singapore.
    Jalan Kampung Pantai
    (one block in from Lorong Hang Jebat)

    06) Hee Kiaw Noodles, Braised Pork & Assam Fish Rice at Yuek Ching Bukit Beruang



    Now one of my favorite place for Hee Kiaw ( Fish Paste) noodles with aromatic pork lard sauce. You might one to try out their braised pork and authentic chinese style assam fish. The restaurant is located near Bukit Beruang housing area. Restaurant normally very busy in the morning.

    Exit Jalan Bukit Beruang,
    Taman Bukit Melaka
    75450 Melaka

    07) Wan Tan Noodles at Kampung Lapan Melaka     

                         

    One of my childhood favorite. What's for supper?? And here we go. They used to operate at Jalan Kee Ann and one of the brother moved out to Kampung Lapan Coffee Shop ( only the locals know I bet) Malacca Style Wan Tan Noodles ( no black sauce ) with thick flavorful pork lard sauce. Taste even better with chilli! Simply satisfying. By the way, there are few stalls here, do try the oyster omellete and grilled chicken wings too!


    Kedai Makanan & Minuman Chop Beeng Cheong
    Kampung Lapan, Malacca


    08) Bukit Cina Yong Tao Foo at Dong Fang Coffee Shop



    There are actually two coffeeshops along this street which is famous for its Yong Tao Foo. It's a one way street- the one on the left famous for their home made fish balls. The one on the right which (one I am reviewing here) is located at Dong Fang CoffeeShop famous for its taukee. Fried beancurd skin wrapped with fish paste. Yes, they are generous with the fish paste. Nothing special about its noodles though.

    Dong Fang Coffee Shop
    ( located along the street to Melaka Singh Temple)

    09) Taiwanese Pork Chop Noodles,Hing Loong at Bachang



    Hing Loong Taiwanese Noodle Housewith more than 30 years of history that serves irresistible pork rib noodles and spicy beef noodles. Love the aromatic deep fried pork chop. MYR 4.60/bowl. Oh yes! The noodle house is famous for its beef noodles too.

    11) Tong Bee Stall @ side lane of Jalan Kee Ann (Bunga Raya)


       

    Don't know where else to head too? Here's a suggestion. Dare you to try!

    Side lane after passing Madam Kings Shopping Centre
    (so make sure you park your car upon reaching Madam King)

    12) Baba Charlie Nyonya Kuih at Jalan Tengkera Pantai2C

                  

    Kuih is a fairly broad term which may include items that would be called cakes, cookies, dumplings, pudding, biscuit, or pastries and are more often steamed than baked. One of the place where you can find kuihs prepared with ultimate rule of Peranakan food! Authentic!

    Jalan Tengkere Pantai 2C
    Melaka

    13) Original Coconut Shake @ Jalan Klebang Besar, Melaka



    Need to introduce more? Well known enough I bet. A good stop to quench your thirst.

    14) Dim Sum at Sin How Wei, Sin Hoe Bukit Baru Food Court Dim


         

    Where to go for dim sum in Malacca? Well couple of restaurants out there, Sin How Wei at the top of the list. Awesome tasteful fishball with bouncy and fluffy texture. Other dim sum are good too. Ready to pack home for your love ones. Limited seats available though.

    Sin Hoe Garden

    Melaka


    15) Steamed Pork bun (bao) at Low Yong Moh Restaurant, Jalan Tukang Emas
     
                                 

    The restaurant is  located at the street before the oldest temple in Malacca. Long queue at time. Well, head here ONLY for their big pork bun (aka bak bao). Extremly juicy ( almost to soupy) pork bun. Nothing to shout about on their dim sum dishes though.

    32, Jalan Tukang Emas,
    75200 Melaka


    Happy to share! Perhaps you might want to try this out on your next get away to Malacca.
    Enjoy!

    Mr Mark Britt Ruffin from Maryland,USA has been running this cafe since 1997. Back then, dad's shop was just a few doors away and we used to dine at Rock & Rolls quite frequently. And then we moved. Nostalgically, bro brought us back to pay Mr Mark a visit.

  • Restaurant Sin Eng Lock @ Taman Peringit Jaya, Melaka

    Introduction:

    Should you want to try some good food in Malacca, you would probably need a local to take you around. And of course not those commecialised restaurants at the historical town. I mean the real local hidden gem.

    Ambiance:

    Not expecting a grand decor or very comfortable environment. Old school classic kopitiam (coffeeshop) style with foldable tables and plastic chairs. Not too stuffy though, air ventilation considered okay.

    Food:

    The family run restaurant has been around for 35 years or more and they serve awesome home cooked food.


      

    Braised chicken feet with cut chillies and ginger

    One of my favorite grandma dish. We used to prepare this dish together, but she's too old to cook now though. Hardly find one that pleases me but this was pleasing.

    Curry Fish Head

    Big portion of fish head prepared with aromatic curry gravy.

  • Mods Cafe @ Jalan Tokong, Malacca


    I always find it exquisitely beautiful to see people doing things they love to do with so much of passion and effort. I have been reading reviews on this cafe located at a narrow street in the Historical City of Malacca and it is in my to-visit list.

    Cut it short, it's Mods Cafe and I visited the cafe last week! Here's a short write up.



                                              Mods Cafe @ Jalan Tokong, Malacca

                     Coffee work station creatively decorated in a classic volkswagen van. Awesome! 


       


                       




    There isn't hardly anything better than the smell of coffee. The atmosphere resembles a quaint coffee house one would find walking down the old streets. Step inside the shop, and you feel a sense of comfort with the light color tones furnitures, colorful wall decors, marbled floors and the smell of fresh-brewed coffee. And so, sit back, enjoy the music and sip away.

    While sipping your coffee, do try their Tiramisu- extremely moist and spongy in texture, it's a very light cake with mocha tasting- Nice.

    A good start for me on a gloomy Saturday morning! Coffee, art, passion and a characteristic owner makes a prefect combination of everything.

    Love and coffee, they go so well together!


    Total bill @ MYR 51.00

  • Roasted & BBQ Pork Curry Rice @ Tengkera Food Court-Medan Selera Tengkera


    And here is another review for roasted pork, bbq pork curry rice at Medan Selera Tengkera, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. One of the locals favorite besides the stall at Bunga Raya-Kee Ann Road.


        Roasted & BBQ Pork Curry Rice @ Tengkera Food Court-Medan Selera Tengkera


       

    Running out with curry gravy, and this time it's only served with braised pork gravy. Crunchy roasted with well marinated barbeque pork and deep fried eggs. Would be perfect if it came with aromatic hot curry gravy though. Too bad, not my luck. Add ons- steamed water spinach (kangkung) with soy sauce.

    Price at MYR 4.00 per plate, steamed water spinach at MYR 0.30/roll

    Cheap and satisfying plate of porky rice- here, you can find!

    And my next visit, would definitely be the stall at Bunga Raya.

  • Malim Jaya Curry Rice @ Taman Malim Jaya


    For the locals, I am sure you know about Malim Jaya Curry Rice. They used to run their business at Jonker Street- the current Geographer Cafe. Although the restaurant has moved to another area in Malacca, the crowd is always there still.

    And I was craving for curry rice. In Malacca, there are also several restaurant that sells curry rice served with stewed pork or roasted pork. The few famous one would be the stall at Kee Ann Road, Tengkera food court ( coming up next ) and also Malim Jaya curry rice.



                                        

                                          Malim Jaya Curry Rice @ Taman Malim Jaya


         

    Malim Jaya Curry Rice, does not mean that the rice are prepared with curry powder or leaves. To be specific it's actually white rice serves with savory braised pork and then topped with aromatic curry gravy. On top of that, you may opt for side dishes like stewed fried bean curd and eggs too.

    Simple and yet satisfying lunch here!

    Price at MYR 4.50 per plate. Side dishes- fried bean curd at MYR 1.00, eggs at MYR 1.00/egg.

  • Kedai Kopi Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball @ Jonker Street Malacca


    I have never thought of me queuing up for this- But I did! Lucky the queue was not that long, you got to be early especially during weekends.

    Chung Wah, reputed to be the best chicken rice in town. The place has been around for decades and never fails to satisfy patrons that are willing to queue.





    Kedai Kopi Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball @ Jonker Street Malacca



                                               Have a guess- What are these?

       


    Smooth and silky steamed chicken served with thick gingery sauce. They would probably steamed the chicken with the combination of chicken stock and ginger sauce I supposed. The wonderful part still, the juiciness and tenderness of the chicken is very well maintained. Thumbs up!


       

    Flavourful, grainy yet soft chicken rice balls. Perfect in texture! And not forgetting the tasteful spicy and garlicky chilli sauce. The combination of the delicious chicken, with yummy chicken rice balls and teasing chilli sauce makes a perfect meal indeed!

    The difference between Hoe Kee & Chung Wah- Hoe Kee's steamed chicken is served with soy sauce and for Chung Wah, the chickens are served with gingery sauce- a pure Hainanese Chicken Rice recipe indeed!

    The queue itself explains everything! Do try!

    Price at MYR 36.00 for 4 person set.

  • Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball @ Jonker Street Malacca


    It's always about food, food and food in Malacca. And chicken rice balls has been one of the famous dishes that the historical town is being famous with for centuries. There are several restaurants that sell chicken rice balls and I can say that there are a few which are worth a visit.

    Let's start with Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball Restaurant!



    Hoe Kee Chicken  Rice Ball @ Jonker Street Malacca



      


    Smooth steamed chicken with soy sauce that goes well with the aromatic chicken rice balls and the spicy, gingery and garlicky chilli sauce.

  • Restaurant Pin Pin Hiong @ Lorong Hang Jebat, Malacca


    I like the old world. Everything seems much simpler. I like old coffee shops too, simple food with memorable old taste can be pretty satisfying too. Here is another coverage of a vintage coffeeshop, which was founded more than 3 decades ago.



                                  Restaurant Pin Pin Hiong @ Lorong Hang Jebat, Malacca

       

    Mee Sua (Longevity Noodles) served with minced pork, piggy inner parts and oysters @ RM 5 (small)
    Thick pork noodles soup with fresh oyster taste. Hits right to the satisfaction point!

    Hainanese Pork Chop @ RM 15.00 (small)
    Crispy fried pork chop served with thick potato gravy. Good to the last bite!

        

    Oyster Omellete @ RM 6 (s)

    Mixed Vege with pork liver @ RM 10.00
    Mixed vege with distinctive pork liver taste sauce. Nice....

    I probably assume that most tourists would not be aware of this coffeeshop. It is more known by the locals! Hard to make a guess, if  you are new - would you be interested as well?

  • Senju Tei Japanese Restaurant @ Taman Melaka Raya, Malacca


    Remember my previous post- Sushi Boat, which I mentioned the second restaurant is coming up by Elaine and partner? Let's welcome Senju Tei! A contemporary Japanese set up that will mesmerize Sushi fans!!

     

    And we were here for mom's birthday celebration!

     

    Senju Tei_01

    A fairly simple open restaurant with tables and chairs and few tatami rooms for different configurations of diners.

     

    Senju Tei_02 Senju Tei_03

     

    Matsu Sashimi @ RM 88.00

    A Japanese dish consisting of very thin bite-size slices of fresh raw fish, traditionally served with soy sauce and wasabi.The word "sashimi" is commonly misinterpreted as slices of raw fish but the real meaning of the word is actually "pierced body". A word derive from the culinary practice of sticking the fish's tail and fin to the slices in identifying the fish being eaten.

    Senju Tei serves extremely fresh sashimi- tuna, salmon, white tuna, white fish, sweet shrimp, squid and conch. Love the elegant arrangement and the refreshing taste of the sashimi!

     

    Senju Tei_06 Senju Tei_14

    Hassan Mee Rebus @ Padang Temu, Malacca

    The business has been going on for 40 years or more, starting with a tricycle stall in the 70's and then moved to the current location in the 90's. The crowd has been gradually growing over the years. Be there early else savor no more!

    Mee Rebus @ RM 3.00 per plate

    Mee Rebus literally means boiled noodles, is a popular dish in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. The yellow noodles are served with spicy, sweet curry gravy prepared with dried shrimps. Gravy extremely tasty!

  • Yam Rice & Pork Meat Soup @ Restaurant Kok Keong


    Located at the Historical City of Malacca, Restaurant Kok Keong is one of the old renowned restaurants that serves yam rice with pork meat soup.


    Pork meat soup, also known as bak kee in Hokkien is similar to our local famous dish- Bak Kut Teh, a Chinese cuisine popularly served in Malaysia and Singapore.

    Pork Meat Soup (Bak Kee) served with yam rice

     

    Pork meat soup features slices of pork belly, flour dipped thin slices of meat and various offal-y bits in a herbal rich broth accompanied with diner's choice of plain rice or yam rice. Yam rice is a good choice though- Yam was indistinct in the rice, but you wouldn't miss it. Rice texture was perfect, fluffy and satisfying and absolutely blends well with the thick, inky aromatic soup.

    Brunching pork meat soup with yam rice on a bright sunny Sunday! A perfect meal before the week ends!



    Address:

    Restoran Kok Keong,
    Jalan Kampung Pantai (one block in from Lorong Hang Jebat)

    Operating Hours:

    730am-2pm and 6pm until the bak kee runs out
    Closed Wednesdays.

  • Sam Patissier @ Plaza Mahkota, Malacca/Melaka


    It was another hidden gem recommended by my dearest brother and sister in law at Plaza Mahkota in the historical city of Malacca.

    Situated right behind the famous Nadeje Patisserie Cafe, Sam Patissier offers a medley range of patisseries with prices that will amaze you!

    Sam Pang, formerly from Ritz Carlton, Singapore, brought his incredible patisserie talent and experience back to his home town, Malacca. He also attended FHA2006 Culinary Challenge at Orchard Hotel, Singapore and Macaron Pastry Training in Bangkok, Thailand.

    Black Forest Cake @ RM 6.00

    A glorious piece of Black forest cake- delightfully chocolaty cake with the richness offset by layers of sharp tasting berries.

    Read more about history of Black Forest Cake- here.


    Chocolate Lava @ RM 3.80

    Also known as molten chocolate lava cake. A chocolate lover should not leave without trying the black forest and chocolate lava cakes. Both prepared with top quality Belgian chocolate and it's a memorable one indeed.

     

    SamPartissier_012 SamPartissier_006

     

    Cappuccino Mouse @ RM 6.50
    An elegant dessert worth a try! Love the light yet rich and mesmerizing taste of cappuccino. Wonderful!

    Cheese souffle @ RM 7.50

    Chocolates and strawberries, always my favorite. I was eyeing for this piece of cheese souffle when I first entered the shop. A pleasant piece of light and fluffy souffle strawberry cake that excites one's senses. Awesome!

     

     

    SOMEMORE? Well, YES! Complementary cakes from Sam, the patissier!

     

    SamPartissier_014 SamPartissier_010

     

    Blood Orange Mille crepe cake

    Another unique masterpiece by Sam. Blood orange crepe cake, served frozen or chilled for a different feel for the blood orange jelly layer. Aesthetically pleasing and of course taste bud tantalizing.


    And so, now you know where to find gorgeous crepe cakes besides Nadeje Patisserie Cafe.

     

    Strawberry White Chocolate cake

    A mercifully lychee with white chocolate cake served frozen. A wonderful choice for a refreshing taste.

     

    SamPartissier_016

     

    Macarons @ RM 2.00 per piece (Lemon, Green Tea, Peppermint & Chocolate)

    Although I am not a big fan of macarons, those served here are not too sweet, crispy on the outside and soft and creamy in the inside- pretty satisfying!

     

    Sam Patissier, a gastronomic indulgence not to be missed. Putting aside it's simple set up, the desserts served are made with high quality ingredients and prepared with remarkable passion. Sam was indeed an undiscovered talent, and we believe that his passion, courtesy and sincerity will definitely take his patisseries to the new height.


    Thank you, Sam for the wonderful sharing session.

  • Capital Delicious Seafood @ side lane of Jalan Kee Ann (Bunga Raya) Malacca

    Jalan Kee Ann, also known as Bunga Raya is the China Town( Petaling Street ) of Malacca. Be it, day or night, you will be able to savior varrious of Chinese food here.

    Few of the famous ones are- Teo Chew Porridge during day time ( I will cover this in my later post) , Fried Oyster and Wan Tan Noodles at night.

    And what else? Here it is............ the cockles on the dark side lane. Stall I am covering this round- Capital Delicious Seafood (They don't really serve seafood actually)- infact the seafood serves are only cockles - see ham, lala & balitong.


      Capital Delicious Seafood @ side lane of Jalan Kee Ann (Bunga Raya) Malacca


    People waitng for seats. There are actually two stall soperating at the side lane. Heard that the first stall (Tong Bee)seems to be better. Not our luck, we were late that day and they were closed already. But then again, Capital Delicious Seafood seems good too.


              The appetizing sweet and spicy chilli sauce with shrimp paste to go with the cockles.


                                     Si Ham - Cockles- half boiled- just nice!


    Lala
    Besides si ham and lala, there are other choices like balitong, snails and mussels too.


    Snack plate- friend bean curds skin with fist paste filling, springy fish balls top with peanuts and sweet lemon sauce and shrimp paste.


    Sotong Kangkung- Fresh boiled cuttlefish with water spinach served with same sauce as the snack plate above.

    Hhhmmmm... will try out Tong Bee stall next round. Got to be early, especially weekends! No doubt, Capital Delicious Seafood is worth trying too!

  • Restoran Barkat Roti John @ Tanjung Kling, Malacca

    Now, here is another suggestion for snacks or perhaps supper in Malacca- Roti John @ Restoran Barkat, Tanjung Kling Malacca (Melaka). It's kinda hard to locate if you are not a local. Perhaps the locals can help though. The location is a lil' far but definitely worth a try!


                             Restoran Barkat Roti John @ Tanjung Kling, Malacca


                                                 The crowd is always there!


                 Fried noodles. Doesn't look good in this snap, taste wise- yes it's pleasing!


                   Ayam Golek Ala Timur- Well marinated, perfectly grilles and it's Great!


                                              Roti John @ Restoran Barkat

    Not so sure with the origin of Roti John, it's actually more like an omelette sandwich which is a popular snack in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Somehow, there is one place in Melaka which is famous for Roti John- and it is Restoran Barkat!


    Normally prepared with sardine/minced meat and eggs. The Restaurant Barkat version was much nicer as it is prepared with lots of pounded anchovies. Crispy and aromatic- flavorsome!

  • Bali Cafe @ Jetty Malacca

    Besides, satay celup or asam pedas, there are plenty of places for night snacks in Malacca!

    Had a drinking and late night snacks session with my family at Bali Cafe. We have not tried their in-house dishes but we are delighted with the grilled food served by a lady-probably hired by the cafe owner? Not so sure though.....


                                               Bali Cafe @ The Jetty, Malacca


    BBQ Chicken @ RM 15.00
    Grilled to perfection. Well marinated with spices- tasted good!


    BBQ Mushroom @ RM 4.50
    BBQ Long Bean @ RM 3.00

    You wouldn't grill these at home, will you? Unless you are having a BBQ party ! Besides, pepper and salt- I wonder what are the other ingredients used. Yes, it's good, good & good.


    BBQ Brinjal/Aubergine/Eggplant @ RM 6.00

    Why on earth do we have so many names for just a particular vegetable/plant? I don't know! Anyway, the grilled BBQ brinjal was good too- grilled with pounded chilli and garlics, pepper and salt! Flavorful!

    And, if you are grilling all these back at home, can you invite me over? Make sure it's nice though. *Grins*

  • Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Malacca

    A brunch session with my brother and sis in law!

    Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant by Tropicana- Tai Thong Group of Restaurants, a traditional Cantonese themed pork-free restaurant.

    And if you prefer a quieter environment, here's a good recommendation! Yea, another favored dim sum restaurant with comfortable Chinese interior with a quieter environment in Malacca besides Dynasty Restaurant at Renaissance hotel Malacca. The other hotels in Malacca are incomparable (currently) - unless you prove me otherwise.

    Steamed Siew Mai @ RM 6.30
    Steamed SiChuan Siew Mai @ RM 6.30

    Steamed scallop with prawn dumpling @ RM 6.30
    Steamed Cabbage Dumpling with Chinese Herbs @ RM 6.30


    Steamed Shrimps Cheung Fun (Rice Noodle Roll) @ RM 6.30

    Every dim sum ordered taste pretty good, except for the rice noodle roll. The rice noodles layers are too thick and not soft enough.

       

    Double boiled superior soup with black chicken and chinese herbs @ RM 10.00 Nutritious!
    Braised Hot & Sour Sichuan Soup @ RM 10.00 This is to satisfy bro's craving!


    Fried Vermicelli Noodle with seafood and egg @ RM 23.00
