东方茶餐室 Kedai Kopi & Makanan Oriental Cafe & 香薄饼食家 Poh Piah Lwee @Melaka, Malaysia

We went to the nearby Kedai Kopi & Makanan Oriental Cafe 东方茶餐室 for breakfast and tried 鱼胶面 Fish Dumpling Noodles (RM5) and 薄饼 Poh Piah (RM3). The noodles in the light broth was nice and the fishballs were bouncy and yummy! however, there was no fish dumpling….

Not too far away was 香薄饼食家 Poh Piah Lwee where we had Poh Piah (RM3) and Laksa with mix of noodles and bee hoon (RM5). Both were satisfying too 🙂 This place seemed to be popular for Nyonya rice dumplings too, but we were too full to try.

Hong Sheng WTM 鸿昇云吞面 @Melaka, Malaysia

After movie, we went to Hong Sheng Wanton Noodles 鸿昇云吞面. It was crowded at 8.30pm and we had to wait a while for seats.

We ordered 3 small bowls of Wanton Noodles (RM5, RM5.50, RM6 for small, medium and large). There was a signage that indicated we should order first before finding seats, but we did not as we were worried it might take a while to get seats…

We later realised that a good gauge could be to see how many bowls were stacked up as orders waiting to be filled. The noodles felt traditional and homely, giving this 古早味 feel. There was a slight alkaline taste to the noodles, which could be covered by adding chili sauce.

Restoran Kuang Fei & Tong Kee Bak Kut Teh @Tangkak, Johor, Malaysia

Our next stop was Tangkak as Dr K wanted to buy some tau sar piah. Conveniently along the same street, there were 2 eateries that looked very popular.

Our first lunch stop was Restoran Kuang Fei, famous for Tangkak beef noodles. We shared the Beef Noodles (RM8 for small, RM9 for big, RM12 for additional ingredients). The small portion was quite little, but the soup was awesome! While the beef was not very tender, we thought it was flavourful with a good bite.

YamCha Hong Kong Dim Sum @Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Our first stop was breakfast at YamCha Hong Kong Dim Sum, where we tried Pan-fried pork bun 菜肉香味生煎包, ChaoZhou Mai 潮州烧卖, Chives Bean Curd Skin 韭菜腐皮饼, Coriander Siew Mai 香茜菜, Crystal shrimp ball 水晶虾球 and 三大民族, which was a mix of 3 different teas (甘草菊普) (Total RM34.50).

We thought the dim sum tasted quite different from the ones we usually have. In general, they were more meaty with barely a hint of the vegetables. We prefer this dim sum place to the one that we tried previously. In particular, we enjoyed the ChaoZhou Mai and Chives Beancurd Skin.

Weekend Trip to Melaka, Malaysia

IMG_1113Dr. K was going back to Melaka over the weekend and we decided to hitch a ride 🙂 Just like the previous trip, we thought to explore another city while en-route to Malacca.

We set off from Singapore on Saturday and visited Breakfast in Johor Bahru at 榕树下粿条仔 Restoran Rong Shu Xia first before having a pit stop at Yong Peng 永平 and visited 永兴福州饼面厂 Eng Hin Kedai Membuat Kuih-Muih and 元延原创永平正宗西刀鱼圓 Yuan Yean Fishball Eating House.

The rest of the day was spent at Melaka where we went to

Manis J Nyonya Restaurant @Melaka, Malaysia

Our last stop in Malacca, and we were still quite determined to try Peranakan food 😛

Our favourite was the Assam Fish (RM50 for medium)! The fish was fresh, and the tamarind sauce had a good balance of sweet, sour and spicy 🙂 We also liked the Cili Garam Terung (RM18), which was fried eggplant in chilli gravy. Unfortunately, we found some of the braised chicken pieces in the Ayam Tempra (RM28) a bit too tough, while the Telur Cincaluk (RM18) was like a normal omelette and we could barely taste the fermented shrimps of the cincaluk.

Chendol (RM5) was the recommended dessert, and Dr K gave it thumbs-up 🙂 We had a taste of the gula melaka on its own, and thought it was pretty good.

The Daily Fix @Melaka, Malaysia

This was the cafe that we wanted to check out during our previous trip, but it was full house when we were there. This time, we went there at 9am, and it was already more than half-full!

Since we already had breakfast, we only tried the Local Pandan Pancakes (RM13 + 6% Service Tax), which was pretty good! For drinks, we had a double shot Cafe Latte (RM10+) and Matcha Latte (RM11+). Both were not bad.

Masjid Selat Melaka (Melaka Straits Mosque) @Melaka, Malaysia

Many people were already waiting by the shore side, with their tripods and cameras ready for the sunset, by the time we arrived via Grab. Sunset came quickly, and we were treated to the glorious view of the mosque 🙂

Restoran Nancy’s Kitchen @Melaka, Malaysia

IMG_1071Restoran Nancy’s Kitchen had been on our radar since our maiden trip to Malacca, but we had never quite made it there for all our previous trips. 😦

Despite reading mixed reviews about this place recently, we thought that we would still want to give it a try, and it was relatively closer to our next stop 🙂

We arrived at 5pm, and the place was rather quiet, though it was quite crowded by the time we finished our meal. And for the first time, we used Grab to travel around Melaka, haha! Continue reading

Locahouz @Melaka, Malaysia

This cafe served a list of interesting specialty coffee, but when we enquired further, all except one had some form of syrup used. So we opted for a Homemade Orange Lemon Beer (RM12.50 + 5% Service Charge) and two Chrysanthemum Lattes (RM13+ for hot; RM15+ for cold). We also got ourselves some Homemade Coffee Marinated Pork Belly with Pumpkin Bao (RM20.90+), Hot Sauce Pork Belly with Pumpkin Bao (RM20.50+), and Banana Cheese Cake (RM9.90+) to share.

The Baos (or burgers) were yummy, though the hot sauce version was a tad too spicy for hubby and I. The cheese cake was not overly sweet and it was a lovely finish to the meal. Drinks-wise, the lattes were pretty good, and while the alcoholic content for the beer was rather low, for a non-drinker, I certainly felt a bit high drinking it, haha! I really enjoyed the tangy sweet and bitter drink, and it was an interesting alternative to the other non coffee options 🙂
