The Local Fare of Melaka

19 June 2019 | by Patricia

Besides the famed Peranakan cuisine that everyone visits Melaka for, there is so much more to Melaka fare. Home to a thriving Baba Nyonya culture (descendents of 15th and 16th-century Straits Chinese settlers who married local Malays), Malacca’s food scene has been thoroughly saturated by the Peranakan culture. Located centrally within walking distance to Jonker Street, we share some of our favourite local fare that will leave you longing for more.

1. Sun May Hiong Pork Satay

For those who have great passion in pork liver and pork intestine (and other spare parts of the pig) served on skewer, this is the stall you can’t miss. The specialty of this stall is the dipping of peanut sauce mixed with pineapple, an interesting taste of sour and spicy. It is definitely uniquely found in Melaka!

50/50A Jalan Kota Laksamana,
Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200 Melaka
Tel: +606 281 7281
10am to 7pm(Mon to Sun)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Pin Pin Hiong

An old-school coffee shop tucked at the corner of Jalan Tukang Besi and Lor Hang Jebat, it is just a short walk from the main Jonker Street. A little known gem that is unknown to many tourists, the shop’s specialty is their mee sua (longevity noodles) served with minced pork, pork innards, oysters and vegetables. This noodle broth brings comfort to the belly with its flavourful soup and generous serving of ingredients. For those who are not keen on innards, you can order other items from the menu that are equally delicious. Try their oyster omelette, stir-fried bitter gourd or mixed vegetables.

786, Lorong Hang Jebat,  75200 Melaka
8am to 2pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Tong Bee’s Cockles (Siham) Stall

Enjoying the cockles in a back alley off Jalan Bunga Raya is an experience you won’t forget. There are a few choices of shellfish available at this stall including siham (cockles), lala (which is actually kepah) and luo (sea snails). The most popular dish here, according to the stall owner is Cuttlefish with Kangkung served with a choice of boiled or grilled cuttlefish.

Off Jalan Bunga Raya lane, 75200 Melaka
7.30pm onwards

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Pak Putra Tandoori & Naan Restaurant

Famous for their naans and tandoori chicken, the place was packed both inside the restaurant and alfresco areas. We ordered the well-known dishes and found out from a fellow diner that the potato pratha was “to die for”. Indeed, the thick pancake had crispy outer layers and a soft savoury potato mash infused with herbs, it was our idea of the perfect comfort food.

Jalan Laksamana 4, 75200 Melaka
5pm to 1am (Tues to Sun)
Closed on Mondays
