bookmark_borderIn Malacca – 4 Hours Food Trip

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.

Nadeje Jaya 99

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.

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.

The Iced Cappuccino (RM6.90) was pretty decent but the Cheese Fried Potato (RM5.80) was below average.

Crowd at Klebang Original Coconut Shake

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.

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.

Putu Piring TengkeraPutu Piring

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 BakutehLoi’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.

bookmark_borderIn Malacca – Restoran Lois Top Beef & Bakuteh

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.
