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.

I have never been to the their old cafe before, as their new outlet sets as a cafe ambiance by offering local food. Good is also they are one of a  Pork Free cafe in Melaka now.

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.

cempedak ball in melaka

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.

When you are craving for Penang street food in Pj, there are not many choices. However, there is this one particular stall that is super famous among the locals and Penangnites. This Famous Penang Curry Mee at Retaurant  Station 8, SS2, PJ that is also previously known as Restaurant OKay, ss2. I believe change owner already.famous curry mee in kl

This stall runs by both father and son from Penang that operates at very unique hour. This will be the first time in your life that see people operating a business for 60-90 minutes only. Yup, that is correct. Only that window. Worst of all is way early in the morning. from 7am – 8.30am ONLY. They only prepare 1 pot of soup. Finish then finish. Good luck. Previously I try my luck for more than 3 times to get this pippin hot bowl.famous penang curry mee in kl

now one bowl is also cost about RM 9 for small and RM 10 for big. Big actually is quite big but now cause of inflation, food is getting very expensive. most important ingredient for Penang Curry mee is pork blood and taupok. 

best penang curry mee in pjthey maintain their quality as the last I had this bowl was like 6 years ago. One of the main reason is I could not wake up. Weekend I would just prefer to sleep. however the soup is still sweet and the most important is the chili paste. Fragrant and punch with mild chili spices. Perfect!

KAPE 카페 at Kepong is one of a cafe in KL that has “so called” Korean cafe. I honestly thought it was run by Koreans and got excited to go over to check it out. when reach and the language transpire is in mandarin, so I was like oh, Korean Concept. 

to me as for Korean Concept cafe, 2 things must get right. Toast and long black.

Interior is something very simple. Near to full white. 
cakes in kepong
cafe in klby picture itself, since it looks more tempting, decided to go with Korean Street Toast, If i am not mistaken it is RM 18. I must say the smell certainly is inviting and One of a better toast that I have come across. Certainly do carry the Korean vibe as it carry strong flavors. with Spam and kimchi egg is certainly something very appetizing – recommended
coffee in kepongThen for me of course must go with Long Black, as that’s that Korean mostly drink on. It is more on the acidic side and it is decent la. 

the Lemon Butter Cake is not too bad. moist enough to go as a while set .

KAPE 카페It is not located at the main road as you need to spot Baskin Robin, then side walk next to it. Not a bad cafe for Kepong people to hunt for or even cafe hop. Price is medium range.

Siew Kee Pork Noodle at Manjalara Kepong is one of the famous pork noodle in Kepong this neighborhood. After I posted in my stories only got to  know it is a few of my friends regular lunch place. I find that this is not your regular Pork Noodle soup place which is a bit unique. I find its a kind of combination of local x east malaysia like Sabah or Sarawak style.

pork noodle in kl

it is a simple comfort food and the store had been operating for more than 15 years already at the same location. 

siew kei noodle house restaurant (3)Here are some of the sparer part for you to chose or you want all in like mine?

what to eat in kepongsiew kei noodle house restaurantFor soup base I find it normal, if you order bee hoon, the taste is covered up. Soup base taste could not taste as prominent as the dry seperate version.famous pork noodle in klSince I observe alot people order the dry noodle, I decided to try one portion for dry and another portion soup base.  Dry pork noodle – Koey Teow Mee with all pig spare part. 

Soup base is great as  I tasted there is a hint of “chinese wine” or siew weng chow in the soup base that give its uniqueness. Pork parts are all cook to perfettion, soft part where it is needed. Missing out is pork intestine. then that would be perfect.

pork noodle in kepongKoey teow noodle is different as when it was serve, I believe it is drench with some fresh pork oil as the aroma of it is very prominent and serve with some sweet soy sauce, some other mixture and pork lard. I find this pretty good. Noodle and gravy itself is on the sweet end with pig oil taste quite prominent.pork dry noodlepork noodle manjalara

Overall, I find it not too bad for a comfort food around the area. Do not mind to come back again as I want to try their Yee Mee Next. Is this the best? every one have their own preference taste. I find it quite worth to give it a try as not the usual ordinary style.

They are also famous with their kopi-peng which is quite kau and with bitter end. kepong food

My friend insisted that we should try only their classic which is the dry noodle soup. Drench with their special dark soy sauce and some special mixture with mince meat.
