Tong Bee's cockle stall: Back lane cockles - Anyone?
The alley was not so brightly lit and there were two stalls selling similar things; on one side of the alley is a small drain. We wanted to sit on the tiny stools and the low tables near the stall but there were simply too many customers waiting around. So we sat on the normal height plastic table and chair. We ordered cockles(sihum), clams(lala), kang kung with cuttlefish and lime juice. Each plate of cockles and clams cost RM1.50. The plate of kang kung with cuttlefish cost RM7.
There was a small plastic container on the table for customers to dispose the shells. While we were eating, ocassionally there were motorcycles riding past behind us. If you are concern about food hygiene, then this place is not for you. We did not have any food poisoing or stomach upset after eating at this stall though.
The cockles were blanched in hot water and they are a bit bloody(not overcooked). You may request them to blanch it a bit longer though. Usually, the taste of the cockles and clams will be the same everywhere but it is the dipping sauce that made a difference to it. The dipping sauce is slightly spicy, tangy and sweet. It has shrimp paste(hei ko), chilli, lime, crushed peanuts and some sesame seeds etc. Not too bad.
The kangkung and the cuttlefish were blanched just right with a nice texture. They were assembled in a plate with different sauces poured onto it. The sauce is similar to the dipping sauce but it had peanut sauce and is slightly spicier. I have not got the chance to try their rojak so I’ll be trying it in my next trip.
Overall it gaves me a nostalgic feel to eat here which reminiscences of the hawker scene in the 1960s.

Located by the Malacca River opposite the Red Square clock tower. Another Malacca legend, the cendol served by this Indian-Muslim hawker is superb. You can have it plain or with red bean and is a wonderful thirst-quencher when doing the historical sights circuit. There is also Indian rojak. It used to operate out of a mangosteen-shaped stall ( hence he's also known as "Mangosteen cendol" ) but now has a more conventional-looking stall .
Hawkers at Portuguese Square: The origin of otak-otak is from ....
Favorite Dish: Indonesia has this snack called 'otak-otak'. And it's also the same in Melaka. It's snapper meat added with wheat flour and egg and wrapped banana leaf [Indonesia] or coconut leaf [Malay style] then grilled.
And other differences: Indonesia's looks so white, since no additional red chilli sauce put in it. It's served with peanut sauce. But Malay style, put red chilli sauce in it and served without sauce.
Street vendors: made to order Malay food
this is the hawker stall in front of the hotel equatorial. it was very late at night and i wanted to taste some malay food. i was looking around and was impressed with the cook at one of the stalls. A huge woman was cooking up a storm and she was enormous, diabetic no doubt and i realized why she is so fat.. greasy malay food
Favorite Dish: Mee Goreng with chicken, made fresh to your order. very cheap food. not healthy at all, but tasty..
it was okay but i would prefer eating elsewhere and there are so many nice restaurants in Malacca serving varied foods.
Street vendors: Medan Selera Dragon Inn Food Court

from a street vendor - Fatman: fresh spring roll _ popiah
the stall is in front of Madam King's departmental store along Jalan Bunga Raya it is fresh spring roll eater whole instead of being sliced. You eat it as if it is a kebab!!!! we call it fatman popiah becos the man selling is fat, but now his son has taken over the stall. The secret to this yummy popiah is the lard - the crunchy lard that enhances the flavour!!!! very long queues!!!
A vendor in Restaurant Ming Huat: MEE KAHWIN
The stall is located at the front of the road leading into the Portugese Settlement. If you are on the way to the settlement, you must really stop for this Mee Kahwin. it literally means Married Noddles. It is called so becos the noddles is a combination of the types of local favourite which is Mee Rebus mixed with Indian rojak.
This stall is about 50 years old if not more - the man Abdul Rahim Jenu has been paddling his stall for 32 years taking over from his father.
Nearby there is a nasi lemak stall - with lots of goodies - the pakcet is so so huge - you freak out at the portions. It is also pretty delicious.
Favorite Dish: This is a rather old time favourite - I think many locals know about this place. The soup or the gravy is thickish, sweet and sourish with a curry flavour and some crushed peanuts and the noddles is egg noddles .
The garnishes include the juihs (floured fritters) that comes in Indian rojak, some crunchy and some cakey and slivers of raw cucumber, turnip, bean curd, hard boiled egg. RM2 .50 per bowl - and noboyd is complaining - it is not so rich the taste that my brother wanted to eat two bowls!!!!
Jalan Bunga Raya Oyster Omellette: oyster omelete
This stall operates only at night till very late. Be prepared to wait for about 1/2 hour before you get your omlette. It is much more a snack or supper food rather than a main meal.
The stall is easily noticeable because of the amount of people hanging around to take away. I sometimes just stand there watching the man so swiftly make this really huge omellete, which is not your regular one.
During the day, the same stall but operated by different people sells quite delicious char siew pork, and also square dried meat which I used to love so much until I found out if contains liver!!!!
Favorite Dish: The omellte is made of eggs, than added some flour thickener and water, and then added the oysters, some fish sauce, some seasoning and cooked in a reall hot fire, and eaten with chilli sauce, garnished with coriander leaves. There is however lack of oysters these days but the flavour of the hot fired eggs made up for it. It cost about 8 ringgit for a plate to share. Once I asked the man to 'extra' the oysters he glared at me - no such thing!!! You can eat the omelette in the coffee shop next door, which also sells Melaka version of wantan mee - not my favourite stall though
Fresh Sugarcane Juice: Stalls along Jonker Walk
In many parts of Asia I have been to I see the similar stalls selling freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. It is especially sweet and thirst quenching. Unique to Hong Kong I had this sugar cane juice during the winter months warm ones; what they do is soak the canes in hot water and when pressed it is nice and warm instead. You all must try this yummy drink besides fresh coconut drink
cendol jam besar: Cool down with cendol melaka
