    Sea Terrace: Seafood at Portugese Settlement

    by thebee96 Written Mar 6, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only opens at night and is probably the most crowded restaurant in Portugese Settlement so it is best to come early for dinner say before 8pm...or it may take very long for them to serve you your food. Staff from other restaurants would normally persuade you to dine in their restaurant while you make your way to Sea Terrace...the restaurant that is right at the end next to the sea. As a local I know that Sea Terrace's price is reasonable compared to the other restaurants which usually charge a higher price for their food (probably to compensate for their lack of patrons). Also, this restaurant normally closes early compared to the rest because there is no more food left to serve so it's proven that their food is good too.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Portugese-style burn fish, crab cooked any how you want it, etc.

    Restoran Mei Yuen: Machap Baru - Restoran Mei Yuen

    by chiabh Updated Dec 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is typicall of a chinese restaurant in a village set-up... non-airconditioned but breezy enough not to be too hot... the restaurant is only opened in the evenings... and not opened for lunch... business hours is from 5:30pm...

    Favorite Dish: Although Machap Baru is a typical hakka village, Restoran Mei Yuen serves all types of Chinese food... It is also have exotic dishes in its menu and this may have to be pre-booked...

    Of course, the speciality is Hakka food... with very good braised pork and yong tau foo...

    Geographer's Cafe: Nice decor, gd place to chill

    by yukisanto Updated Oct 29, 2006

    I like the effort that went into the decor. And the food portions are huge, i ordered a sandwich (RM7), and she said it was one person's portion, but i nearly couldn't finish it. Generous fillings in the bread.
    Nice place to chill and relax in the afternoon, not many people. Go to the second floor, you can take in the view of the street below you as well. Come night, and this place transforms into a pub popular with foreigners.

    nice decor huge portions of food at affordable prices geographer cafe at night - pub

    Famosa Chicken Rice Ball: Famous Chicken Rice Balls in Melaka

    by y_lyn Updated Sep 5, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is worth to give a try as these chicken rice balls are very famous in Melaka. I love to eat chicken rice so I actually quite looked forward to try these unique dishes in Melaka. However, to my disappointment, they don't taste that good. We ordered 1/4 steamed chicken, 10 chicken rice balls, otak and a bowl of soup. The chicken rice balls, in my personal opinion, are like the malay ketupat, but taste even more bland than ketupat! Of course, there are people who love them so this is only my personal opinion, do give it a try if you are in Melaka.

    Favorite Dish: Wanton Soup

    Indah Sayang Nyonya Restaurant: Baba & Nyonya Delicacies

    by Azri_Azmi Written Aug 17, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many Nyonya restaurant throughout Melaka. Just a quick information, when chinesse first came to Melaka for about 600 years ago, some of them got married with the local malay. Their generation then being called Baba (Male) and Nyonya (Female). They are very good in cooking and speak fluent Malay language.

    Okay, this restaurant situated along the main road of Melaka Raya. Among many Nyonya restaurants, this restaurant appear to be very small in their setup. It is a family business, so cooking taste very delicious like a home cooked meal.

    The inner setup is a bit small, tables & chairs being layed out nicely and what makes this restaurant unique is, they also are having their own personal collection of antique being displayed as their theme. Its air conditioned.

    The owner cums the one who will serve you and take your order is an elder-man. Very friendly but we need speak up a bit during making our request to him to make him hear right at the first time. Nevertheless, he is very kind and love to share stories about antique that being displayed here in his restaurant.

    The price for dishes are acceptable for a medium setup Baba & Nyonya restaurant. The last time I visited this place, it cost us RM230.00 for 10 pax. Menu that we had were Fish Head, Prawns, Squids (Fritter & Chilli Dish), a vegetable, chicken, eggs & of course the 'Cendol'. Quite okay right for a price per person?

    They accept Amex & Diners even.

    Favorite Dish: Many dishes in the menu related to Baba & Nyonya, but the most that got my attention is the Fish Head Curry (Baba & Nyonya Special Grind Curry) and also the Squid Fritter. Another one unique menu to try is the Fish 'Otak - Otak'. To wrap up the main course, please try the 'Cendol Gula Melaka' as your dessert.

    The Indah Sayang Restaurant The Table Layout Squid Fritter a must - very crispy Do order their 'Cendol Gula Melaka' for dessert Some of the antiques inside the restaurant

    by Azri_Azmi Updated Aug 5, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    First visited Johnny's Restaurant in late 90's during my stayed in Kuala Lumpur whereby their first branch situated in Bukit Bintang Plaza. Once tasted their steamboat, I got hooked on it. Luckily, their business grow very fast and opened up a branch here in Melaka which is in the Jaya Jusco Mall, Ayer Keroh. Eating Steamboat at Johny's is my monthly occassion since its opened in Melaka. The restaurant setup is very confortable, air-conditioned and friendly with professional attitude staff. Good location (inside Jaya Jusco). I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: The Steamboat for sure and what most tasteful is the special sauce that only available at Johnny's. Lots of choices to goes along with the steamboat, all Thai style dishes. Menus for steamboat are varieties such as chiken fillet, fishballs, mushrooms, squid, tofu, meatballs, vegetables, oyster, clams etc. Their water chestnuts dessert also taste very good.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The location of this cafe is very strategic and thats make it as one of the favourite cafe especially for tourist from the west. Situated in the heart of the famous Melaka Jonker Street. It's concept is like a bar, serving basic western dishes and variety of drinks. Also need to mentioned that it is Wi-Fi friendly for those traveller that wanna use Wi-Fi technology to access the NET. I recently noticed that they accept all major credit card and diners club card as well.

    Favorite Dish: Basic Western Food & Drinks

    Mee Soup Tengkera: Known as the Best Mee Hoon Soup in Town

    by Azri_Azmi Written Jul 25, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place is situated along Jalan Tengkera. Just less 10 minutes drive from Banda Hilir. The landmark to find this restaurant is the Tengkera Mosque as it is just a few steps away from the mosque. Melakanian claimed that this is the best place to eat Mee Hoon (a type of noodle) Soup. It is an open air restaurant and the ambience is quite havoc as the Jalan Tengkera road is the main road that leads to the Coastal Road to go north. Might having problem to find a parking space due to the tight road and its always looks busy. BUT to confirmed what Melakanian had claimed (best Mee Hoon Soup in Town), make yourself available and try this dish. You will surprise to see this restaurant always fullhouse. AND the price is cheap @ RM2.20 per bowl.

    Favorite Dish: Mee Hoon Soup, Mee Soup and there is also a famous local snack call Popia being sold here.

    Mee Soup Tengkera Ready, just pour soup on top of it 'owner' is preparing the soup

    In the day, this place is hot. At night, it is happening. Especially on the weekends with the pasar malam of Jonkers Walk. The top level allows you to see the action all down below.

    You don't come here for the drinks and food. You come here for the view.

    Situated along Jalan Tan Cheng Lock, a few shops away from OCBC Bank, this is a great place to chill out, especially in the afternoon when it is hot. I love to just sit by the river and enjoy a beer with fries.

    88 Eating House: Baba Cendol

    by bkoon Updated Mar 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are so many places selling chendol in Melaka. But which one is the best. Well, many love to come to 88 to try its chendol. Not my favourite chendol place in Melaka, but it is still very yummy. I guess chendol in Melaka is always good due to the generous serving of the fragrant gula Melaka (dark palm sugar). Situated on the main street, i.e. Jonker Street, the eating house is an old and long Peranakan House. There are many antiques in the shop and although not exactly a clean place, people still flock in for its chendol, and of course the laksa and other desserts too.

    Sis savouring on the 3rd bowl of Cendol!!!
