One Day Food Hunt Trip in Malacca - 8 stops!

27 June 2015 - I haven't visit Malacca for like 4 years? And when H2G group, a group of friends who enjoys travelling, sports, and all kind of activities, plan to organize one day trip. I just go for it.

Initially, I thought to bring my baby, but ended up not to, he will be shocked seeing all the food, but cannot eat. Actually, it is not convenient to bring baby, unless it is a family trip, but this is a friends and food trip! We have 15 people joining the food trip.

1st Stop: Huang Chang Chicken Rice Restaurant

Address: 376 75350, Jalan BB 1, Taman Damai, Melaka, Malaysia

Phone:+60 6-317 0299

Ordered their famous chicken rice balls and white chicken, truly, it is delicious. the chicken has smooth and fair chicken skin, haha! but I still prefer Ipoh chicken rice.

The rice balls are...just rice in ball form...

2nd Stop: Chuen How Restaurant

Jalan Merak, Taman Melaka Baru, Batu Berendam, Malacca 75350
*Closed every Thursday

As we were about to go back to our car to hop onto the next food destination. Jason says: "Hey, Chuen How Restaurant, famous for its char siew!" It is just opposite Huang Chang chicken Rice Shop, walking distance.

Notice the long queue even from the outside. The shop has it rules. Regardless you sit in the restaurant or plan to take away, you need to line up, please.

So we ordered its famous roasted pork, char siew and beancurd (foo chok)

Crispy, juicy, and tender. This is so far the best roasted-pork I have ever tried. Everything is nicely done, from roasting the pork till it being served on the plate.

Beancurd, something to try after eating the roasted pork. This one is just moderate.

3rd Stop: Nadeje Cafe

They have lots of branches, we stop by at Nadeje Jaya 99.

Nadeje was the one who started off Mille Crepe (thousand layer french cake) trend in Malaysia. However, we are far more dissappointed with it s quality. You see, that is the cons when you expand business into franchise concept and when you tend to open more branches, just to get more business.

The cakes are too sweet and too much cream, those categorised as 'contain alcohol' has not much alcohol taste at all. I can get better one back in KL.

4th Stop: Sun May Hiong Satay House

Address: 50/50A, Jalan Kota Laksamana 1/1, Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200, Melaka, Melaka, Jalan Kota Laksamana 1/1, Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia

Phone:+60 6-281 7281

What so special about Sun May Hiong Satay House? They serve all kind of pork satay with different pork parts.

Such a long queue again....

The satay is on fire, I wonder how many satay do they make in a day? hmmm....

Uncle satay shy with camera

We are still waiting after 20 minutes, so, I and my girls took some selfie to prove that we were here before!

Tralala, finally we got two table to accommodate 15 of us. And I think we ordered 50 pcs of pork satay for each table.

Their pork satay is just normal.

It is their secret satay sauce that makes them popular then. The smell of peanut satay sauce with a mix of some chilli oil.

And at this point, some of us is really feeling super bloated and full.

5th Stop: Klebang Original Coconut Shake

Klebang, 5, Melaka, Malaysia
Time: 12:30 - 6:30pm

What, you think someone is shaking coconut?

Unfortunately, no.

After watching the video below clearly, what they do was, they opened the coconut, blend the flesh, mix the coconut water, and add in lots of ice, blend it, serve you with vanila ice-cream topping. that is Klebang Original Coconut Shake. If you plan just to drink the coconut shake, you can just park at the roadside and queue up for the coconut shake.

Hot coconut guys,,,they even have proper uniform!

vanilla ice-cream

If you prefer to sit in, you can turn into further behind to go to their big food stall, with lots of seatings, and lots other malay food for you to choose.

Klebang Original Coconut Shake is too sweet for me, but good enough to quench your thirst.

6th Stop: Bunga Raya Popiah

Jalan Bunga Raya, Melaka, Malaysia. just right in front of Madam's King Departmental Store.

As you see the photo, it is written RM 4 and NO PHOTO ALLOWED. some bloggers name the guy as 'fat man'. probably he dislikes to have photos being taken, and he is super shy.

And you can see closely, he cooks a whole big pot of turnips and carrots, and the normal combination of eggs, peanuts and bean sprouts. What made his popiah so popular? Fat man gives lots of crispy pork lards. And funny enough, they don't cut your popiah in 4 pieces, which mean you have to try to eat the whole roll of popiah by yourself, or if you want to share it with your friends, figure out where to get a cutter/ knife to cut it off.

Kinda enjoy the popiah at the beginning, but after taking the 3rd small bites of the pork lard, kinda feel he puts too much pork lards.

7th Stop: Dong Mei Stall 

Address: Lorong Bunga Raya, Melaka. Landmark: a backlane just next to Madam's King Departmental Store.
Tel: 016- 6458108,012- 6011621
Evening like 6pm onwards.
There are 2 stalls at the backlane, so how do you know which one is nicer? We choose the one with lots of advertisement from those TV liveshow, for example: Axian, and Hao Jiak.

Seeing this banner, you will know what you get to eat: fresh clams, snails, cockerels, BBQ squid, BBQ tofu, kangkung, balitong, prawns, and rojak.

So, what makes us come here to eat when you can make the same thing just by boiling the seafood?

The chilli sauce is the secret - self-made bright red chilli, with rojak sauce, and a twist of lime, giving you spicy, sour, and think sweet sauce.

and the next stop, we will take a break while waiting for the Jonker street night market. We have a walk to burn fats around the lake area. Here are some awesome photos:

And you never missed the trendy trishaw or Beca rides in Malacca town

One place I must go when I go Melaka is to go San Shu Gong to buy my favourite chili garlic sauce

and go jonker street market to buy nyonya dumpling, glutinous rice dumpling wrapped with bamboo leaf, and filled with pork, mushrooms, candied chinese wintermelon with a little touch of the blue pea flower coloring.

The 8th Stop: Ban Lee Siang

Add: 45, Jalan Ong Kim Wee, Melaka, Malaysia

Which one is Ban Lee Siang? Both are. turned out both brothers quarrel and open shop separately, but next to each other! Wonder which one is the genuine one? But if you are not a fussy person, either one shop will be good, because both shops are crowded with people.

and there you go, select your preferred food that are 'poked' in a stick, like s satay, and dip the food in the hot gravy peanut sauce. And the food are ready to eat.

We started our food journey from 9am from kl, and reached back kl around 1am.

Diet after this! This is an amazing food hunting journey!
