It was yet another impromptu trip to Malacca. But unlike my previous one which was aeons ago, this trip lasted just over four hours only in the historical state. Our sole purpose of this trip was to do some food hunting.
The journey was smooth and to my surprise, the traffic after Ayer Keroh toll towards the city was minimal although there was slight congestion at Jonker Walk. This trip was done on Saturday, by the way. Our first stop was Nadeje. As of writing this, there are three branches in Malacca with the latest outlet in Jaya 99. We chose this (the new outlet) over the other two branches because it is right on our food hunting path and we will passby before entering the city.
Original Mille Crepe and Rum Raisins Mille Crepe
Nama Donut (Blueberry)
The mille crepes (RM9 per piece) tasted as expected; fresh, light and rich, while the visually pretty Nama Donut (RM7.50) was pretty alright. Somehow, I prefer Nadeje’s mille crepe over the ones by Humble Beginnings.
The interesting about the donut is, despite it looks like a donut, it is essentially a base made of sponge cake with thick layer of cream on top.
Cheese Fried Potato
The Iced Cappuccino (RM6.90) was pretty decent but the Cheese Fried Potato (RM5.80) was below average.
Right after the tea break, off we went to the next pit stop; Klebang Original Coconut Shake. There was a long queue but the waiting time was minimal as they were quick in preparation and served seamlessly.
Klebang Original Coconut Shake Special
A cup of Coconut Shake Special costs RM2.20. It is a mixed concoction of crushed ice, coconut water, minced coconut flesh and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is really delightful especially during scorching hot weather.
While sipping our drink, we headed to the next pit stop for some putu piring. Located along Jalan Tengkera, this simple stall, managed by a couple, is said to be the place to go to in Malacca for this classic kueh. Priced at RM0.90 per piece, this simple-looking snack is made of rice flour, filled with gula Melaka and then finished off with grated coconut before serving on banana leaf. While I liked the sweet filling, I can’t really say the same for the texture of the rice cake. However, that’s just me and my picky tastebud. Do try them out and tell me what you think!
Loi’s Beef Bakuteh
Our final pit stop was none other than ‘beef bak kut teh’ at Loi’s Top Beef & Bakuteh. I wrote about it before here. We waited quite a bit before our food arrived but it was alright. It is a must to try this at least once if you’re in Malacca. With filled stomach and that satisfactory feeling, we made our back to Kuala Lumpur at 8PM.
