Kedai Makanan Ah Heng @ Lorong Tiong Nam 3, KL

Kedai Makanan Ah Heng is a curbside hawker case that serves a operation of normal Chinese beef dishes. They are maybe many famous for their white peppers pig stomach soup – guaranteed to perk we adult and comfortable your swell during a same time.

A singular apportionment of a soup with strips of pig stomach and a span of duck feet costs RM9, a satisfactory cost deliberation a apportionment size. The soup is intensely piquant (as expected) yet appetizing, best enjoyed while it’s still comfortable before a season goes flat.

Another quintessential plate here is a Claypot Spare Ribs @ RM12. Even yet a soup looks identical to a peppers soup above, it’s indeed honeyed and tasty with a good herbal undertone. we was utterly astounded during how proposal a gangling ribs were. They usually indispensable a hold of light soy salsa to move out a healthy benevolence of a meat. Simple and nice.

Next up, Braised Pork @ RM8. You could select pig belly, trotters, viscera or also brew them adult if we want. we suspicion this was normal during best given we felt a braised salsa was not thick and dainty enough. That said, a pig viscera were cleared entirely so there wasn’t any musty smell.

There are a integrate of duck dishes here yet we motionless to try a Hua Diao Chicken @ RM12 given duck curry is too common, and we are not unequivocally a fan of rice booze chicken.
It was tasty interjection to a perfumed ‘hua diao’ aroma and a punch of ginger that always goes good with Chinese wine. Among a 4 dishes we tried, this was a strongest tasting one.

The menu is displayed on a signboard. If we can’t review Chinese, other offerings here embody pig trotter in vinegar and ginger dish (zhu kiok chou), sour gourd and pig ribs stew, pig swell with mustard cabbage (mui choy), pig trotter/belly with carrot, pale vegetables (in oyster sauce) and fish cakes.

Our dish cost RM46.60 (inclusive of rice and herbal drinks) that is understandably pricey given we had 4 beef dishes. Overall a food here is not bad yet zero unequivocally illusory either. Nonetheless, it was a estimable knowledge that we would suggest to anyone who’s meddlesome in this kind of food.

Wan Char Koay Teow @ Residensi Bistaria, Ampang

One thing that creates Wan Char Koay Teow (WCKT) mount out from a rest is their pioneering menu offerings. Besides a common prawn and cockles, other seafood such as squid, baby lobster, crayfish, clams and even soothing bombard crabs are available.

Even yet Wan is from a easterly coast, his Char Koay Teow is an instrumentation of a strange recipe from Butterworth. His process of cooking is rather opposite from what we am used to see in Penang, that is not unequivocally a large understanding to me as prolonged as a ambience is there.

The initial thing we beheld about a original CKT (kerang + udang @ RM5 for normal portion) is a some-more plump than common cockles – good if we like them big. The prawns were uninformed too, clear by their organisation and honeyed strength and palliate of peeling.
If we wish to suffer a Char Koay Teow during a dictated flavor, I’d advise we ask to replace a preserved chillies, or have it served alone so that a clever vinegar ambience does not ‘taint’ a benevolence of a noodles.

For a hold of luxury, a baby lobster CKT is labelled during RM15. The baby lobster was dipped into a special curry beat and boiled alone before being surfaced on a portion of ‘kosong’ CKT.

Wan used to use flower crabs for his CKT yet after a feedback from a business about a con of carrying to de-shell a crabs, he motionless to examination with soft bombard crab instead.
At RM13 per serving, we get a whole soothing bombard crab, that is prepared accurately like a baby lobster earlier. Between a lobster and soothing bombard crab, we indeed cite a latter since there’s some-more strength to go around.

Here’s WCKT’s full menu. Satay is also accessible yet during a after time, they need to glow adult a colourless grill. Even yet they are handling from one of a coffee shops located during a belligerent building of a residential condo, visitors can expostulate in and park in any dull parking space.

Seri Nyonya Peranakan Restaurant @ Hotel Equatorial, Melaka

Last weekend, we had a pleasure of dining during one of a many beautiful restaurants we have ever seen – Seri Nyonya of Hotel Equatorial Melaka. This desirable Peranakan grill is famous for a home baked Nyonya style-dishes, that is a initial in a 5-star hotel as distant as we am concerned.

The overwhelming and charming environment of Seri Nyonya also creates it a renouned venue for couples who wish to have a singular Peranakan themed wedding.

It was a full march plate and we were served a sum of 7 dishes, all hand-picked by a government to showcase a flawlessness of their menu.
We started off with ‘Sup Itik Tim‘ that is a contingency in any Peranakan meal. It’s fundamentally a soup prepared with preserved vegetables, green plum and steep meat. The transparent looking soup is comforting with a agreeably sharp though not tainted essence that unequivocally non-stop adult a appetite.

And what’s a Peranakan plate though Pie Tie? Easy to eat though wily to make, these ethereal morsels were decently crafted. We enjoyed a smashing contrariety of textures between a wet and delectable ‘Jiu Hu Char’ that sits in a thin, crispy cups.

Next up, ‘Ayam Buah Keluak‘ – duck baked in sharp savoury gravy with Kalimantan black nuts. This normal plate is an acquired ambience due to a sharp and sourish ambience that a nuts give.
Personally, we wasn’t unequivocally a fan of it, this is something that we possibly like or we don’t.

Ikan Gerang Assam‘ – instead of regulating a whole fish, fish fillets were used instead since they are weak and easier to eat generally for kids.
Compared to asam pedas (another identical and renouned internal favourite), a gravy is most thicker with a some-more offset brew of spiciness and acidity from a tamarind juice. It was tasty and went intensely good with rice.

My favourite plate of a night had to be a ‘Udang Lemak Nenas‘. This quintessential plate has everyhing we like in a bowl: vast tasty sea prawns, coconut formed gravy, spiciness and luscious sliced pineapples. There’s simply zero not to like about this classical that highlights a characterisitcs of Peranakan food – tangy, savoury and rich.

To finish a experience, there were also ‘Telur Dadar Cincaluk‘ (egg omelette with preserved krill) and ‘Kangkong Goreng Belacan‘. Honestly, we was awaiting a omelette to be utterly sharp due to a cincaluk though it was surprisingly fragrant. Similar to a Ayam Buah Keluak, cincaluk is also rather an acquired taste. Fortunately for me, we favourite it. we suspicion it done a ideal pairing with a gravy from a assam fish.

For dessert we had nothing other than Nyonya cendol, an icy provide that Melaka is famous for. Although it was exquisite to a hawker version, it was worthy for grill standard.
Seri Nyonya’s cendol emphasizes on a use of Gula Melaka for a abounding and heated flavour, though could use a heavier sip of santan for additional fragrance.

Asam Boi is a signature splash here and a mixture is done with red plum (to get a orangish-red colour) and longan. It’s unequivocally utterly overwhelming – lovely with a ideal multiple of honeyed and sour, good for quenching thirst.

Besides ala grant dishes, Nyonya character steamboat is also accessible here during RM70++ for 2 pax. You get to select between spicy, asam-like soup and transparent vegetarian soup for a prohibited pot. It’s a satisfactory cost deliberation it’s Equatorial, and we are removing mostly uninformed mixture such as prawns, sliced fish, squid, chicken, beef and yong tau fu and not processed food.

Nutty Coco Chatuchak Coconut Ice Cream @ IPC Shopping Centre

Another Chatuchak-style coconut ice cream has landed in Malaysia. This time they are called Nutty Coco and can be found during a belligerent building of IPC (Ikano Power Centre) Shopping Centre. Last weekend was their grand opening so there was 1 buy 1 giveaway 1 graduation that will final for a week – until 30 Apr 2015.

Currently there are 3 kinds of coconut associated products on their menu: ice cream, reward coconut H2O and milkshake. Oddly adequate their signature coconut ice cream shares a same name as Sangkaya’s, that is named zero other than “The Signature“.
At RM9.50, we get a few scoops (didn’t count how many) coconut ice cream and a few strips of coconut strength that are surfaced with whole sweetcorn and roasted groundnut.

To be straightforward a multiple is zero new though we know that it will work. As for a ice cream, a hardness was some-more like a sorbet and not as tawny as Sangkaya’s. It could be a good or bad thing depending on your palate. Personally, we like cave to be abounding and creamy. Taste correct it was positively tasty – lovely with an observable coconut hint though still, not as ‘concentrated’ as Sangkaya’s.

The Galaxy Star @ RM10.50 has sugar star (the cereal thingy), chocolate salsa and peanut. Although we am not unequivocally a fan of sugar star, their crunchiness was surprisingly beguiling when eaten together with a ice cream.

The remarks we done about Nutty Coco competence make them sound defective to Sangkaya in comparison, though that’s unequivocally not a case. Their ice cream was good and tasted really tighten to what we had during Chatuchak. Furthermore, with a buy 1 giveaway 1 graduation going on, there’s no reason not to give Nutty Coco a try.

Although drifting is affordable now, there are still times when traveling by land is my elite mode of transportation. Although it competence take longer, land transport is some-more relaxing and some-more importantly, gentle in comparison to atmosphere travel. There is copiousness of options to transport within and out of Malaysia to beside countries such as Thailand and Singapore.

You could take a sight or bus, afterward opt to lease an automobile during your destination. Wouldn’t it be good if there was a one-stop website to hunt and book sight and sight tickets and even take caring of automobile rentals? Well demeanour no serve than easy book, an online engagement height to business from Malaysia and Singapore.

Besides carrying some-more than 110 obvious manager companies on board, easybook also allows we to book KTM sight tickets online, as good as providing automobile let services with rival rates online. For me, one of a vital draws of regulating easybook is that we can do all these bookings with one singular account, so we don’t have to conduct mixed logins and passwords.

The website is officious easy to use given it is designed to have a identical interface with many vital online engagement systems for atmosphere tickets.

Jonker Street’s coffee underground: The ultimate Malaccan café hop!

Patrons at The Daily Fix are a mix of locals and tourists. — Pictures by CK Lim
MALACCA, June 7 — Possibly the most popular destination in my hometown, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Malacca, has to be Jonker Street. Pre-war Peranakan residences are transformed into tourist magnets filled with antiques, souvenirs, museums, homestays and eateries offering Nyonya laksa, dodol (durian candy) and the infamous chicken rice balls.

Lesser known are the growing number of artisanal cafés that serve coffee and fusion fare in nostalgic environments harking back to the good old days. (Except “the good old days” these days come with a decent flat white made by local hippie baristas.)

What better way to explore these coffee havens than to embark on a full day of café hopping? You have to start at Jonker Street (officially known as Jalan Hang Jebat) naturally. Hidden in the back of a souvenir store is The Daily Fix, a surprisingly sunny café (thanks to the natural light from the air-well in the interior courtyard).

A wall of colourful enamel dishes at The Daily Fix.
The brainchild of owner Julian Yeo, The Daily Fix has an easy-going Antipodean meets historical Malacca ambience. Vibrant mismatched furniture share the space with a wall of colourful enamel dishes. A profusion of green plants brings a tranquil side of nature indoors.

The café gets its beans from a variety of coffee roasters; recent offerings include Toraja from Sprezzatura Coffee and Nuts+Bolts from Pulp by Papa Palheta. For sweet treats, try the Pandan Gula Melaka Pancakes, fluffy and redolent of the aromatic screwpine leaves and local palm sugar. The mint cake is another fresh bite, when they have it.

To reach the second café, turn left from Jonker Street into Jalan Hang Kasturi and then right into Jalan Tukang Besi. This street is thus named thanks to the former metal workers who used to ply their trade here. That slice of history comes alive at Kaya Kaya Café, where even the reclaimed wood tables are adorned with antiquated metalwork.

Rattan chairs abound in the interior courtyard. A two-storey wall mural here declares the origin of the café’s name: in Zulu, “kaya” means “home”, while in Turkish, it means “stone”, which is quite appropriate for a “stone home” with lots of exposed red brick walls.

Malacca Elvis — a pancake version of Elvis Presley’s favourite peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich — is Kaya Kaya Café’s signature dish.
Besides coffee, Kaya Kaya Café also offers homemade pandan and lemongrass brews as well as Fuller’s Organic Honey Dew beer for those who enjoy a zesty tipple. Manager Pak Siew Yong, a former Malaccan tea house owner, recommends their signature Malacca Elvis, a pancake take on the King of Rock and Roll’s beloved peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich.

A two-storey wall mural at Kaya Kaya Café tells the story of the café’s name.
Next, enjoy a leisurely stroll towards the Malacca River, before turning left into Lorong Hang Jebat and crossing the bridge over the river. Hidden in Lorong Jambatan, a quiet back alley, is a tiny café named after its address: Alley No. 5. Its secluded location means you can sip your cuppa while enjoying some peace away from the tourist hordes of Jonker Street.

Owner Yalu also runs The Bridge Loft, a popular homestay for backpackers above the café. The retro décor draws from a 1960s palette of Shanghainese sirens crooning on old radios. During its golden past, the alley and nearby Kampung Java used to bustle with opium dens, brothels and Chinese theatres.

Today, only a few traditional businesses such as goldsmiths, barber shops, and a rubber stamp manufacturer have survived but Alley No. 5 continues to draw a lively and dedicated evening clientele with their regularly held musical performances by local indie bands.

To continue, walk along Jalan Kampung Pantai away from the river. As you turn left into Jalan Hang Lekiu, you will stumble upon Eat @ 18, our fourth stop. The café takes up the ground floor of a two-storey shophouse; the upstairs is occupied by a boutique hotel called Opposite Place.

The French toast at Eat @ 18 is made from bread made freshly daily by baker Eli Lum, who also runs the café (left). The pebbled walkway of Eat @ 18’s front patio (right).
Eat @ 18 is run by baker Eli Lum, whose artisanal breads are swiftly earning a following here. The preservative-free, organic breads are featured in dishes such as Lum’s signature French toast with fresh fruit, homemade strawberry jam and cream. Some of the loaves can be found hanging from the exposed brick wall as menu adornments.

The sunlit communal table at Eat @ 18 is surrounded by hanging plants.
From the pebbled walkway of the front patio to the communal table surrounded by hanging plants, Eat @ 18 is perfect hideaway for lovers of brunch fare and coffee to linger over. Lum also sells a wide variety of cookies under her Knead & Simple brand.

Baristas Chong Joe Yee and Jacqueline Wen serve up espresso beverages and single-origin brews at Mods Café.
Head along Jalan Tukang Emas next till it turns into Jalan Tokong, so named thanks to Cheng Hoon Teng, Malaysia’s oldest traditional Chinese temple. Just before you reach the temple, you will pass a row of the shops selling joss sticks and hardware. Nestled in its midst is Mods Café, possibly the most retro café in the country.

Customers at Mods Café sit opposite an orange Volkswagen Classic Bus that doubles as a coffee bar.
Its claim to this reputation is a bright orange Volkswagen Classic Bus inside that doubles as a coffee bar. Baristas Chong Joe Yee and Jacqueline Wen serve up espresso beverages and single-origin brews in this space inspired by the mod culture of Britain during the early to mid-1960s.

Pony-tailed owner Abert Khow is also the resident coffee roaster, the only one in Malacca. The roasting takes place in the rear, where the roasting machine shares a room with Khow’s drum set. With beer cans from around the world adorning the walls and the Union Jack flying proud, experience the invasion of the Beatles era once more.

Get dainty desserts and espresso-based drinks from Backlane Coffee’s long, white-bricked bar.
Complete your café crawl by returning to Jonker Street from its intersection with Jalan Tokong. Look out for the Koong Woh Tong herbal jelly outlet; hidden inside past a row of souvenir shops is Backlane Coffee, so named because its other entrance opens out to a side alley at the intersection of Heeren Street (Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock) and Jalan Kubu.

The large windows facing this back lane allows plenty of natural sunlight in, making this the brightest café by far. The décor is vintage yet clean, with a turquoise vinyl record player playing sentimental tunes from the 1970s and yellowing maps on the wall. A long, white-bricked bar showcases the freshly made desserts Backlane Coffee is known for.

Backlane Coffee’s salted caramel tart with Ruby Salt and a gula Melaka-infused meringue topping.
Try their signature salted caramel tart with Ruby Salt and gula Melaka meringue topping or one of their macarons — the teh tarik and Earl Grey flavours are popular. Sip on freshly brewed coffee made from a house blend of Columbia, Java and Sumatra beans. Every cuppa is accompanied by a buttery cookie stamped with the café’s name.

Who knew historical Malacca had so many hidden cafés to uncover? Have fun tracking each one down!
