Melaka Trip: The Food

Finally, a post about FOOD from Melaka =D Actually there are still some that are missed out because we were to busy eating I guess =P Anyway let's begin~

1. Mille Crepe @ Nadeje, Dataran Pahlawan Mall

Rachel recommended it, and actually I've heard bout this shop too so this was our 1st makan stop.
The elegant looking cafe

Tiramisu Mille Crepe

Strawberry Mille Crepe

They have a lot of varieties for their Mille Crepe, and we ordered 4 to share. We tried Tiramisu, Chocolate, Very Berry Strawberry and Original. Their mille crepe is not too bad, the crepes are thinner than the one from Humble Beginnings which means you can feel more layers. As for the filling, I think it's lighter than Humble Beginnings too =P

From the 4 we tried, my favourite was Tiramisu. Very Berry Strawberry is not really recommended as the berry jam layer on top was really sour and I think that it does not match the light fillings of the crepe. Original,'s original lol, and I think most of them didn't enjoy the chocolate 1 as well, they were complaining lack of chocolate taste.

2. Jonker 88 @ Jonker's Street
Spotted the shop opposite us =D

The Famous Cendol which is said to be must have

Nyonya Laksa from the same shop

First of all, I wanna say I'm freaking disappointed with the dessert, be it Cendol or ABC. I think it's a bit overrated, and there's always a queue at the stall. The first time I was there, I tried the Cendol and honestly I didn't quite enjoy it. So I thought I should try the ABC this time perhaps, but the ABC was worse than Cendol -_-"

The thick Gula Melaka was bitter instead of sweet for my ABC T_T And it doesn't match well with the ingredients of my ABC. I only managed to finish half, as I really can't tahan weird taste. I think the Laksa should be good since no one complained about it lol.

3. Satay Celup @ Ban Lee Siang
Restoran Ban Lee Siang, not as crowded as Capitol but definitely better =D

1st tray:fried wantan, vege, bean curd skin (fu pei) and you tiao

2nd tray: mushroom, fish cake and fish/sotong ball.

3rd tray: Seafood

The secret to good Satay Celup, good peanut sauce XD

You Tiao dipped in peanut sauce

I extremely love the you tiao dipped in peanut sauce haha. But must be careful not to dip to long or else it will be too soft. Actually I can't really compare Ban Lee Siang with Capitol as the first time I've ever tried Satay Celup was Ban Lee Siang.

But according to others, they said that this shop's peanut sauce taste better than Capitol, with more spices and stronger flavour. From what I found out, mostly tourists are the ones who will be going for Capitol, while locals will know Ban Lee Siang is better =P Besides that, Ban Lee Siang's Satay Celup is cheaper where it's only Rm0.50 per unmarked stick, and RM0.60 for those with red marks.

Since there are a few people asking me where is Ban Lee Siang, I've decided to embed the map here so you all can locate it next time =)

3. Jonker's Street Night Market
Henry's Mango Milk Jelly

Grace ordered Vitagen Lemon Jelly, while I chose Lemon Jelly

Alvin's Vitagen with Red Jelly

Actually there's more stuff that we ate and bought, but after a whole day of walking, I guess everyone is tired and so less photos during the Jonker's Street session LoL =P Rachel bought some local delicacies back for her office's colleague. We had Fruit in Stick with Malt which tastes really good except that my strawberry is kinda sour.

4. Bak Kut Teh
Bak Kut Teh with Yam Rice

This place was recommended by Rachel, she said it's nice and she tried it during her last visit with her family. So we went and try as well. For me, I think the Bak Kut Teh is quite tasteless, it tasted like the herbal tea egg's herbal tea -_-"

Rachel also said that the meat is very smooth, and I thought smooth as in the meat itself is smooth, but who knows what she meant was the meat was coated with a layer of unknown substance (I guessed that the unknown substance could be egg white) so the outer layer of the meat became smooth. For me, I didn't really enjoy this Bak Kut Teh. Klang's Bak Kut Teh FTW =P these are the trials and errors for this trip. Some of the food are "Naik Kereta" type but some of it is really good =D Do let me know if you agree to what I've wrote above =P
