Many of you been to Jonker Street Melaka and also take a famous mural art wall of Kiehl’s Mural art in Melaka. This famous 1405 Art Cafe at Melaka used to operate right at the Keihls mural wall. Now they have moved to this new location Taman Kota Laksamana where currently is the new hub of F&B in Melaka.

Setting out the my classic palate, of course I aim on their classic local Signature kopi. @ RM 7.90 It is “kau”! Strong, with bitter end taste and not too sweet. Punch with nice dark roasty end taste.
Since there are many people who order their signature Royal Nyonya Laksa, lets try that out.. We can pick Choice of noodle, I picked thicker noodle Mi’xian which is my substitute to Penang style laksa noodle. Bee hoon and mee certainly do not sound right to me. Love the Soup base which is is creamy and fragrant. Chili paste given is just to enhance slightly for little spicy.
quite a unique kind of laksa and I think I am recommended you to try too. @ RM 14.90
their Nasi Lemak @ RM 14.90 certainly do caught my attention as I wonder how would the taste of this place in Melaka like. Rice seems serve with like blue pea flower colour.
Rice is fragrant with light mild end of coconut and pandan flavour. I wish that the chicken could be slightly crispier but it was how the locals like it. Sambal is on the sweet side and I guess I would rate this as a Chinese version of Nasi Lemak which I think very near to Nyonya style nasi lemak which certainly sits correctly in Melaka as they are well known for nyonya food.
If you think the rest are heavy, then their Classic Tomyum Fried Bee hoon @ RM 8.90 is actually not too bad.
Signature Salted Egg Croissant @ RM 17.90, flaky outside and inside ooze with salted egg base. Perfect to go along with coffee. It would not bee too much for a person to finish it up. Just a nice portion and ratio of the salted egg base in it.
I must say that their Cempedak kuih is da bomb. Must Order. It is like muachi in punchy flavours. One of my best highlight for the day. One bite that breaks its crispy outer layer, then you reach on second layer which is like muachi texture and the filling of cempedak, is just flavourful. Do give it a try – recommended
They do sell in frozen and you can buy and take back to your origin place!
Lastly, for tea time, they do have a few variety of cakes available. From their own signature crepe and tiramisu.
If some of you still miss the food of 1405 cafe, do find them in their new location.
