Melacca Rendezvous - A food trail

It was so so long ago since the last post i have blogged. I do really missed blogging a lot especially on those food hunting adventures. My life drastically changed since I come and work in Singapore. Although not much difference on the cultures, foods, weather and etc., I do really need some time to make myself adapt to the fast-paced society. It's around 3 months plus now, and I think that I'm doing great here. Finally have a break on the Easter's weekend and went for a short and relaxing trip in Melacca.

Day 1,
Lunch @ Calanthe Art Cafe (famous known for its 13 states coffees)

The legendary distinctive coffee blends from 13 states of Malaysia

There are different sections inside the cafe that provide different ambience for the customers to choose from

Love their furniture deco. It will be a good background for photography ^^

Left: K.I.M (RM9.95) - Fruitty coffee. Espresso with coconut syrup & coffee jelly served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
Right: Perak's coffee & Negeri Sembilan's coffee (RM4.95 each)

Calanthe Laksa (RM7.95) *Must try*
The Laksa soup base was thick and creamy, accompanied by plenty of ingredients. I must said that it is the best Laksa in Melaka I have tried so far.

Claypot E-mee Laksa (RM8.95)

Next stop,
Take away @ Klebang Original Coconut Shake 

Coconut shake special (RM2.50)
Coconut flesh and coconut water was blended together with some ice cubes and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Very refreshing for a hot weather.

Dinner @ Ban Lee Siang, Satay Celup
When visiting to this historical town, "Satay Celup" which is originated from Melacca is one of the local's food you shouldn't miss.

Ban Lee Siang, one of the famous Satay Celup restaurant in the town

The thick satay gravy to "celup" all the ingredients

Plenty of ingredients to choose from (RM0.70 per stick)

Ban Lee Siang
45E, Jalan Ong Kim Wee,Melaka
Tel : 06-284 1935
Opens : 17:30 till 00:30 (Close on Tuesday)

The night ~ free & easy @ Jonker Street
A night market that is only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday's night. You can find almost everything at there for a reasonable price.

Day 2,
Lunch @ Nadeje Plaza Mahkota
Mille crêpe is the main attraction in Nadeje Patisserie that attracted many customer to come and try it. “Mille” means “a thousand” in French, implying the many layers of crêpe used. The mille crêpe is nice but not good and "wow" enough, maybe it was too commercialized for me. Personally for taste wise, I still prefer the mille crêpe from MACO CAFE & BAKERY, Johor and THE TWELVE CUP, Penang.

Strawberry Slice (RM9.50)

Gula Melaka Slice (RM9.50)

Nadeje Plaza Mahkota
G-23 and 25, Jln PM4, Plaza Mahkota, 75000 Melaka.

Tea Break @ East & West Rendezvous Cafe
This will be my favourite cendol in Melaka. The not so commercialised cafe if compared to Jonker 88. Made according to traditional recipe with pure gula Melaka, its overall combination has the perfect balance of sweetness and thickness. Definitely worth a try!

Durian Cendol (RM3.50)

Gula Melaka Cendol (RM3.00)

Box of Pineapple tarts (RM9.80)

Dinner @ Jonker 88,
Located at the center of Jonker Street. A very good location that can attracted many crowd to try it although there are nothing to shout about. Very common perception from tourist, the food must be very delicious if it attracted crowds to try for it. Pathetic >.<

Nyonya Asam Laksa (RM5.00)

Baba Chendol (RM3.00) & Baba Durian Chendol (RM4.00)
It's so so sweet and I can't even finish the whole bowl due to that.

Sago Gula Melaka (RM3.00)
Same as the chendol, TOO SWEET! =.=

Pal Tee / Top Hats (RM9.50)

Jonker Dessert 88
88, Jalan Hang Jebat, 75200 Melaka

These sum up my Melaka food trip and I'm starting to miss the food there already. ^^
