Please try the variety of delicious foods in Melaka. Nanti menyesal tak cuba. So far, I had discover SEVEN that suits my tongue. I called it Seven Wonders of Malacca...
*besok-besok kalau ada tambahan, jadi la eight, pastu nine, ten, eleven, twelve, bla-bla-bla-bla*
SEVEN WONDERS OF MALACCA!
*the arrangement is not based on ranking, all are worth trying*
1. Ikan Bakar Umbai- Parameswara
It is just about 5 - 10 km dari Lebuh AMJ. As we arrived, rupanya ada banyak kedai ikan bakar kt situ. There are many promoters outside, keep dragging us here and there with their menu. How to choose? Pe-tua orang tua-tua, kedai paling ramai orang tu paling sedap. Jadi kaki ini di landing kan di "Ikan Bakar Parameswara". Four words to describe; sedap, murah, cepat dan mesra pelanggan. Look at these pictures, delicious kan?
2- Asam Pedas- Claypot
Situated at Kota Laksamana 1. Kalau GPS, search aje Kota Laksamana 1 then u will find the restaurant. Datang Melaka tak mai pekana Asam Pedas, means u had never been to Melaka laaa. Kali pertama try, sedam-sedam aja. Takla nak cakap va-va-voom. Tapi kali kedua, terlebih sedap pulak. Sampai terhirup kuah. Cuma yang pasti, everytime I came the tables are always full. Tapi tunggu around 5 menit jer dah boleh dapat meja. Maybe it is one of the finest asam pedas in Melaka. (please told me if you think others are better)
3. Sate Kampung Jawa
Cari je Kampung Jawa, pasti ketemu. You can walk along Sungai Melaka and you will find a satay "shop" full with people. Tapi cuma available waktu tengahari je taw. Kalau lewat, mungkin u kene menjamu mata je lah. Meja and kerusi is not that much, so u would really have to be patient. This satay is special for its variety I guess. They even have "sate kerang" on its menu. And also the "organ dalaman" stuff like perut, hati, ntah ape lagi (I dont know coz I dont eat those). You just have to order for how many pax, they will sent you all the packages. The price are counted based on how many lidi kosong. :)
4. Cendol Jam Besar
Situated at one of the busiest road in Melaka. To be exact, it is located across the road in front of the Old Post Office Building. Where it is always crowded with visitors. Gerai kecik jer. Tapi sedabbb. Ada cendol pulut, cendol aiskrim, cendol durian, cendol kacang and a few more. Tried on cendol aiskrim and durian, I would say durian is better. :)
5. Restoran Pak Putra (Roti Naan + Tandoori)
If you know the road to Asam Pedas Claypot, then you would also find this restaurant. Jalan kaki semenit pun enggak sampei between those two. Roti naan nye sangat best! Lembut, cheesy and secukup rasa (memang cheesy sebab I pilih roti naan cheese). There are also roti naan garlic cheese and roti naan garlic. Ayam tandoori pon best. Went there for 3-4 times, it never disappoint me. :)
6. Coconut Shake Kelebang
First time I went to Pantai Kelebang, I saw a really long queue at one stall near the main road. Tapi malas nak queue punye pasal, I come back for second time about one month later. And the queue is still the same! Sangat panjang! Luckily mase I beratur, penjual tu cakap yang I can buy the same coconut shake at their "restaurant" di belakang jalan. I go there, it was faster. Kat sana ada meja and kerusi u boleh duduk. It is worth waiting, sebab coconut shake nye memang sedap giler!
7. Seafood in Portuguese Settlement
Jalan nak ke Kampung Portugis nie susah sikit nak explain. Tried once, and ikan bakar nye taste different. Portuguese baked style. The scenery is beautiful, tepi jeti yg cantik.
Till then, bye-bye~
