    Nice site! I have a penchant for Malaysian cuisine and I think your site just gave my drools a sojourn stop.

    So much good food in Melaka, great to explore more than just the normal chicken rice or cendol.

    Keep thinking about the coconut shake with ice cream, especially when it’s super-hot these days in California. Have to try it. :)

      You’re lucky… I found it and I was even more disappointed with the taste.

    i think the coconut shake is better during weekdays, particularly when they are using the original blender and not the customised one. I think another place worth checking out will be Pak Putra at Kota Laksamana which serves tandoori chicken. ;)

    Aunty Koh’s cendol stall is opened only on Sat and Sun – I was told by my Malacca pal. I’ve been there once and it’s easily the best cendol in the whole of Malaysia and Singapore for me.

    wow, this is great! am going to malacca tomorrow and your blog really helped me and my pals find out which are the best local cuisines. It’s especially helpful because we’re all noobs and this is our first food trip.

    Not to mention, your review comes complete with GPS coordinates which just made everything 100 times easier. Seriously, can’t thank you enough :)

    Hi Vkeong, i think you should try the fried prawn mee at Tengkera as well (Business Hour – 7am-2pm weekends only). It’s definately not to be miss out when you are travelling to Melaka.

    Hi vkeong,
    There might be a gps error on the cendol in bukit rambai.
    Can u find out the exact location? Or get the person who brought u to the cendol place to contact me?

    I would like to recommend a place, where my friends and I found really good Malacca-an cuisine.Apparently the chef is the ambassador of Peranakan food in Malacca. This cafe is located in Tengkera opposite Jonker walk. The cafe has a FB page, https://www.facebook.com/Loftjonker..really loved the pineapple fried rice and devil curry

    Hi, where do you stay for the trip? Do you know any hotel to recommend near all the ‘heavenly good food’ that you recommend?

    • vkeong

      hi Tina, I usually don’t stay at Hotel for short trips like these. I prefer staying at hostels/homestay
      But there is one you could check out is Mimosa at Jalan Bunga Raya, it’s is quite good although the breakfast is lousy (which you won’t eat anyway since you will be eating out)

    The Laksa is the best! Period. Nothing more to say, except Sarawak laksa is even better.

    The Klebang coconut shake is worthy to try too.
    The duck noodle… ok lar. Not so special to me.
    But the East and West Rendezvous Cafe is a total waste of my money. Spent more than rm100 for 5 cups and 20 over bakchang; drank 2 cups and throw 3 cups, ate 3 bakchangs and given the rest to uncles and aunties, and my mechanic.

    My father in law always bring home blue bakchang from melaka, and those are 100 points, this is just 50 points.

    As for the cendol, try Donald’s and Lily’s. They are 100 points while this is just 1 point because the gula melaka is over cooked, bitter taste.

    I’d have to say you were WAY off on your review of the Chia Yean duck noodle. Was there the weekend of 8/9 Dec. I grew up on the taste of duck noodle when I stayed in Malacca till I was 12 years old. I had high expectations that I would relive my childhood taste. Unfortunately, the noodles tasted bland. Looking at the duck hanging at the stall, look like it’s been there for days. The soup that came with the dry noodles… it was like boiled water, add some soy sauce & pepper. I am not exaggerating. I have never had food receive high praise on a food blog taste this bad before. Will definitely not return for this.

    Just back from bangkok and dreaming of southeast Asian food. Hope to be off to Malaysia soon, Penang, Melaka, Ipoh for the first time in a while. Will follow mouth-watering suggestions.

    I am in Australia and has been for some time, and I am just drooling just by looking at those delicious wan tan mee, char siew rice, roast duck rice and backstreet cockles. Well time for me to make a trip back to good old Malaysia, and also to try out your Malaccan goodies.

    Thanks Mate

    Hi, i would have to disagree with you on the Wantan Mee. Paid a visit at Dung Fong for the wantan me and it was a total disappointment. The mee was overcooked and it was mushy. And taste blant as well, nothing special. I am not going back for the wantan mee anymore. And also some of the food is a bit over rated such as the pork satay.
    Anyhow thanks for the suggestions as i really like the beef noodle in Jalan Bachang.
