Foreigners will surely love Melaka for its rich historical background, but did you know
that this Malaysian city is also famous for its amazing food?
That’s right! You will find a lot of worthy food establishments in the metro and you will
definitely want to visit them if you are here.
Today, I am going to go over some of the top food establishments that you must visit
when you are in Melaka. If you happen to have a girl escort with you, dine with her so
that you can have a pleasurable time.
1. Nyonya Makko Restaurant
If you have a lot of friends that went here, they will probably say that you should sample
some Peranakan cuisine (or Nyonya foods). If that is what you want, you should
definitely visit the Nyonya Makko Restaurant.
Here, you will find an assortment of Nyonya foods that are so delicious that the locals
hailed this as the best Nyonya food establishment in Melaka.
Once you arrive, definitely taste their delicious beef rending, Tenggiri fish in Asam
Pedas, Sotong Chili Garam, etc.
2. Jonker 88
Jonker 88 is actually not a café but it is a small museum where you can find a piece of
history, as well as some delicious and inexpensive food.
You can find an assortment of Nyonya foods here as well, but the most notable dishes
that have on offer are the Nyonya Laksa, Gula Melaka, and Chendol.
3. Nancy’s Kitchen
Although the place itself is not as big as the others on this list, Nancy’s Kitchen is still a
worthy food establishment. Located in Jonker Walk, you can find plenty of exotic foods
that may look weird but are actually delicious to the taste.
Some of the foods that you should sample here are the Poppiah, Chendol, Sek Bak
(Braised Pork), Kedongdong Drink, and Sambal Satong Petai which is just Sambal
Squid with Bitter Beans.
4. Geographer Café
The Geographer Café is famous for a lot of reasons. They have a nice and welcoming
staff, friendly atmosphere, and some nice music playing in the background. The
experience here is so amazing that it is no wonder why it received the Certificate of
Excellence two times from TripAdvisor.
Although I would usually recommend some foods on the menu, sample all of what they
offer. Trust me, they’re all worth it!
5. Hard Rock Café
If you want to eat some American foods, then there is no more place to be other than
the Hard Rock Café.
Why should you choose this place? Well, they have an accommodating staff, great
ambiance, a spectacular view of the city, and most importantly, you get live
performances every night!
6. Tengkera Duck Noodle Restaurant
This establishment specializes in duck noodle soup, but you can also find an
assortment of different noodle dishes if that is what you prefer.
This place has a great ambiance, good service, and some really nice plating. Their
noodles are simply to die for.
7. Sun May Hiong Satay House
Although there are plenty of eateries here that offer Satay, this particular Satay house
actually makes the best one in the city. Pair it with some of their amazing barbeque and
you will be full!
