Melaka (Food) Trip Part 1

Hiya everyone! I know I haven't finish blogging about my BKKxHH trip lol but today I'm blogging about a recent trip to Melaka before I forget all about it hehe.

It's all about food, so be prepared to drool! Haha!

1. Freeport A'Famosa Outlet

A photo posted by Nicole (@nicckane) on

 Open air outlet with plenty of shops! Not as cheap as expected though.
Crocs was worth a buy! Bought 5 pairs there LOL

2. Unicorn Cafe

Next stop was lunch! Was too early for check in yet late enough that when we went, their famous Babi Pongteh and Pai Tee was sold out TT 
Anyways we got to try other food they offered and it was delicious!

Nyonya Popiah RM5.50

Seriously the most yummy one I've had in this trip. The best popiah I had in my life I'm not kidding. One piece seriously cannot fit in your mouth thats how big it is. And they are very generous with the fillings.

Seh Bak RM9.90

One thing I like about this cafe is that they offer small and cheap portions so you get to try different kinds of Nyonya dishes without breaking the bank. 
This dish taste a bit like tao yiu bak, with a variety of spices.

Pongteh Ayam RM9.90 (On the left)
Kuah Lada Ikan RM9.90 (On the right)

The spices were fragrant and unique, making the gravy perfect to go with rice. Especially the fish, which is stingray, was cooked to perfection! Not too soft but not to tough as well. 

Nyonya Laksa RM5.50

For such a big bowl seriously! Waaay cheaper than the ones they sell in Jonker Street, yet still fragrant and delicious! A bit spicy, I nearly choked on the first bite lol but the soup is really nice! So different than the laksa we have in Penang. 

Otak-otak RM10

My sister loved this dish! 

Chendol RM3.50

Okay this was again the most satisfying chendol I've had in Malacca. And cheapest. Jonker Street sells this for a minimum of RM5. 
 The gula Melaka was the golden touch! And the coconut milk 
Oh the green jelly thingies and red bean are at the bottom lol.
My mom was so impressed with the gula Melaka she immediately bought some at the spot hahaha!

Ok this is not related lol but I remembered my grandma's house once had these tiles. A blast to the past :)

Totally recommended to come here if you wanna try authentic yet affordable Nyonya food!

3. Hotel Arissa

Next we went to check in at our hotel, Hotel Arissa! Was so looking forward to it coz its a newly opened hotel.

Their lobby's design is so...different from their clean and sterile rooms lol.
 And on the top left pic, I took a pic of the snack corner which we all loved, you can take and nibble on snacks we used to have when we were little. For free! So considerate of the hotel!

Look how huge the room is! Per night is only RM120 incl tax and all!

Everything is new!

The rainshower was amazing! When we went it the knob of the shower was broken lol (can you spot the evidence above) but after calling the front desk they immediately sent someone to fix it! Good service!
And yes, its see through lolol! Anyhow after pulling down the shutters you cannot see anything from outside lol.

4. Satay Celup

There was a satay celup shop just opposite of our hotel, so we went to have a try. Each stick costs RM1, which was not cheap. You can give it a try since it is unique and only available in Melaka. The one we went was Ban Li Xiang Satay Celup. 

5. Jonker Street

The street everybody goes to in Melaka lol. So basically its overcrowded and overpriced.
But everyone goes there, so you have to too lolol!

At the entrance.
We walked for about 10 minutes from our hotel to Jonker Street as parking would be crazy there.

Chicken and Coke? lol

Bought just to take pics lol. Nothing special about it.

6. Bibik Cendol House

Chendol RM5

Yes we had chendol again. But this one, the gula Melaka was not as nice as the one we had before in Unicorn cafe. But still nice to sit down in the heat and enjoy some cooling dessert.
The green jelly was separated to prevent it from freezing! Cool!
The shop was in the middle of Jonker Street, pretty easy to spot!

7. Putu Piring Tengkera

This was our supper lol. Also, we went to buy this supposingly famous putu piring near our hotel.

Putu Piring Tengkera RM1.10 per piece (top)
Popiah (2 for RM5)
Otak-otak Johor style lol (10 for RM9)
Snacks from hotel lobby 

Had high expectations and I'm not disappointed! Everything with gula Melaka is heavenly!
The putu piring is freshly made before my eyes so it was a refreshing experience. We planned to have this the next night too but was too full to have it lol. 

OK so thats all for part one! Hope you're not too hungry after reading this lol.
More to come in part two. 

Till then xx
