There are times when there are no words can describe how awesome a food is as it happened to me a few times over the years. And it happened again recently as the expression of words seems to fail me when I had a mouthful of this delicious siew yoke that I’m going to talk about. It was that good that I’d rather show some photos of it to tempt you to have a go at it… that’s if you haven’t which I honestly think it’s a BIG mistake!

Seating Area

Crowds begin to assemble at this coffeeshop at about 1220PM to hold their places and at 1230PM, finding an empty table seems like a difficult task (albeit it’s not impossible). Going any earlier will do you no good as they only start selling at 1230PM onwards. Hence, you still need to wait even if you are there at 12PM.

Soups

Chicken Rice

Unlike takeaways, the waitress will walk around taking orders and amazingly, she was able to do it (taking multiple orders) at one go without jotting down in a notebook/paper. Flexing her superior memory muscles? Maybe but she failed to remember one of our orders. Soups are available at the self-service counters while chili sauce is placed on each table.

Wong Meng Kee Roast Pork Belly (Siew Yoke)

Reputably as the legendary, it is THE place to have siew yoke (roast pork belly). Hearing how good it is doesn’t do any justification as you need to be there to sink your sharp teeth into the meat and savour every moment of it.

Wong Meng Kee Siew Yoke

“Melt in your mouth” is just figure of speech but to experience it will definitely bring you to a new level (some say to heaven, I kid you not.). Crispy crackling skin, fatty with lean meat in between, it is just too sinfully good that you can eat it on its own.

Roast Chicken

BBQ Pork (Char Siew)

Even the roast chicken and BBQ Pork (char siew) would gladly play the second fiddles to let the siew yoke to shine on its own. Yes, it’s that good awesome.

Wong Meng Kee Chicken Rice

The price came to about RM58.70 for 2 portions of siew yoke, a portion of BBQ pork (char siew) and roast chicken each, two plates of rice, fresh coconut and a can of Coke. This means a strip (portion) of siew yoke will set you back around RM15. It might be expensive for some but it is definitely the place to go if you are craving for good awesome siew yoke.

Some say that your Malacca trip / holiday is not complete if you have not had any chicken rice balls. And some say that you must have the famous chendol with thick gula melaka (palm sugar) before leaving the historical state.

Restoran Lois Top Beef and Bakuteh, Melaka

Well… it may be applicable to tourists and many others but to me, one of the meals that I must have whenever I’m in Malacca is from this place.

Spacious seats at Restoran Lois Top Beef and Bakuteh

When I first had it, it was located along Jalan Penghulu Abas. That was a couple years back and they have shifted to this spanking new outlet not long ago. Spacious, clean and airy, new customers would love this place compared to the old one. I know I would since parking is abundance too.

Rice with Beef Bak Kut Teh

Despite being labelled as Beef Bak Kut Teh, first timers would be disappointed by its taste as there is lack of herbal goodness in it, unlike the famous porky counterpart. Nevertheless, the distinctive hot peppery taste (of the soup) will grow on you after a couple sips thereafter. I know it did to me.

Beef Bak Kut Teh

Slices of beef meat are usually added on top of the pile of other goodies such as beef balls, foo chuk (fried beancurd), tripe, stomach and cabbages.

Sliced Beef in Claypot

By this way, customers get to cook the meat (in the pipping hot soup) according to their liking and not overcooking the meat by the time the claypot arrives to the table.

Beef Bak Kut Teh with Rice

The total bill for two portion with two bowls of rice and drinks is around RM28. It is definitely worth the try if you are new to this or have not heard of this stall or have heard of it but yet to try it. One might not like it as much as I do. But if you are feeling adventurous or still wondering why this is my must-go-to stall in Malacca (probably due to my vaguely description of the meal), you’ve gotta try it out and tell me your feedbacks.
