Food Hunt in Historical City of Malacca

One thing we Malaysians will agree is that we love our holidays and Selamat Hari Raya! A short food hunting trip is a must and here we go!

We started our journey slightly late at 8.30pm due to my sudden nature’s call (sorry everyone!) and we stop by Pasar Besar Seremban for our breakfast before continue our journey down south.

Beef Noodle (Soup)

Their famous beef noodle soup. It is pity the organs are unavailable thus we will have to just go with only the meat 🙁

Beef Noodle (Dry)

Beef Balls

This is a must stop for me whenever I travel down south for work or other states. The beef stock is rich and flavorful from long hours of boiling the bones and the broth is enhanced by adding in the meat and other parts before serving to you. Remember to try the dry version as it offers for a more packed umami flavor compared to the soup version!

Price: 9/10
Taste: 10/10
Summary: Mesti Makan! Just another story to share, this uncle shop is the only shop that survive a flame accident from the market and the market is currently undergoing refurbishment. You can find the stall at the corner near the parking lot and easy to spot.


So we decided to try this nyonya restaurant recommended by our friend upon reaching malacca.


The cendol lacks gula melaka and santan. The starter did not give me a good first impression.

Fruit Rojak

The staff recommended the rojak but sauce flavor is mild and viscosity did not live up to expectation….

Udang Masak Lemak Nenas

Just as hope is lost, finally something good is up. Their signature Udang Masak Lemak Nenas is good. Thick curry sauce with fresh prawn and savory pineapple.

Brinjal Pajeri

A must order and not a common dish you can find everywhere. The brinjal is grilled and serve with sauce comprises of grated coconut flesh giving it a very interesting texture and taste profile

Chicken Devil Curry.

Delicious but not as spicy as expected

Shrimp and Onion Omelette

Sambal Bendi

Wild Coriander Special (Chicken Rendang)

Overall dining experience is fine. The main courses are fine with slight disappointment on the starters.

Price: 6/10
Taste: 6/10
Verdict: Focus on main dishes.


Price: 8/10
Taste: 7/10
Verdict: Overall is good.


This is the best, satisfied and most worth it meal for this short trip!

French Bean with Salted Egg Yolk

The french bean goes through a quick deep fry before tossed in salted egg yolk. You can still taste the french bean sweetness enveloped by the crispy outer layer! Superb!

Homemade Tofu in Pumpkin Sauce

Needless to say the taufu is soft and fragrant. The pumpkin sauce give the whole dish a great smooth silky texture and especially fragrant with the curry leaves added! Oishi!

Thai Style Claypot Pork

Fish Curry

The curry sauce is thick and best eaten with rice! The fish is fresh as well and they uses good quality fish namely red snapper! You can choose to have Fish Head, Fish Meat or Fish Tail. They also give you an option for Prawn Curry instead if you do not prefer fish but trust me its good!

Fish Head Steamboat

This is the bomb! A must order of you were to come here! The difference they between the rest I ever had is they are generous with the evaporated milk giving a smooth milky texture. They also uses dong guai to give it a herbal taste and dry chili for a spicy after taste! The broth is rich in umami and uses fresh red snapper so don’t worry about any fishy smell! This soup will surely give you a satisfying ending for your meal!

Price: 10/10
Taste: 10/10
Verdict: Go for it! Quality is assured as the owner himself is the head chef ensuring every dish coming out from the kitchen is presentable and edible.
