We love trying out Peranakan food (aka Nonya food) whenever we are in Malacca 🙂
For this trip, we decided to check out SamFu Restaurant in Mimosa Hotel. Ms K’s dad joined us for dinner too 🙂 We were glad that we had made reservations a day in advance, for the restaurant was packed with customers during dinner time.
Keppel Club certainly brought back much memories for us 🙂
From VivoCity, we took a 30-minute stroll into Keppel Club… It was a fairly long walk in!
Since we had already tried Peony Jade a couple of times before, we wanted to check out PeraMakan this time.
Being a Monday, it was a really quiet day, and we had seats by the windows.
We enjoyed each dish, and like that the flavours were very balanced, without being overly spicy or sweet. We also liked the crackers that was served as appetiser.
Yet another day ended with a late meeting nearby, and hubby went to la kopi at Roosevelt’s Diner Bar while waiting for me. While I could find the correct MRT exit to Dorsett Hotel, I couldn’t find the cafe.. *faintz*
So hubby came to look for me, and Candlenut, who has just won a star in 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore, was just right there! There appeared to be some available seats close to 8.30pm, so we decided to try our luck and walked in without reservations 🙂
They were serving a unique Peranakan tasting ‘ah-ma-kase’ menu of inspired Peranakan cuisine at $68++ per pax, with a choice for dessert out of 5 options. We were not fans of sweet desserts, and I did not particularly like kuehs, so it was tough to choose!
We took our time in the morning and had a late breakfast at the hotel.
After that, a slow stroll brought us to St Paul’s Hill, and A’ Famosa Fort.
We continued to stroll to the famous landmark of Melaka, Christ Church Melaka before making our way back for lunch at Restoran Nyonya Makko!
We had heard good reviews of Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine which is just behind Hatten Hotel but we were not able to get reservations (it’s very very popular!). So we settled for Makko which is also near the hotel and we had been here 5 years ago.
