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.

halal cafe in melaka

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

nyonya laksa melaka

halal cafe melaka

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.

coffee in melaka

If you think the rest are heavy, then their Classic Tomyum Fried Bee hoon  @ RM 8.90 is actually not too bad.

1405 art cafe melaka

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! 

cake in melaka

Lastly, for tea time, they do have a few variety of cakes available. From their own signature crepe and tiramisu.

One of the most anticipated theme park in  Malaysia Asia is now open its door to public after 10 years of renovation. Genting Skyworlds Theme Park starting its Soft launch from 8th February 2022 onwards.

What can public expect from this soft launch is, of course there wont be fully operational park and with the term soft launch means there are rides would not be fully running and of course you get a glimpse of preview the whole park and perhaps selected rides base on your luck on the day.

genting theme park ticket

of course this comes with a Genting Skyworld Ticket price special pricing of Soft launch from:

  1. Kids/ Old folks : RM 128

  2. Adults : RM 151

you can purchase your tickets in Genting Skyworlds Theme Park website

Actually the park is not small, and if not mistaken is about 25 acre. this is the first park that I took 4 hours to walk around, move around, minimal ride, some video and picture taking here and there.

4 hours just gone down the drain and I would highly advise all of you to go to the park early. IT IS BECAUSE alot of CORNERS FOR NICE PICTURE TAKING. very instagramble.

What I hear alot is go Seremban must eat crab. I have really no idea why but then did ask my friend and recommendation was Crab in Restaurant Bee Kee in Seremban is one of their favourite place. reasonable price and decent portion for their other dishes.

Of course we are sucker for reasonable price not the touristy price. A nice restaurant with decently deck up that serve pretty good range of seafood too.

Centry egg veggie Superior soup anchovis is one of my favourite. Simple and pretty spot on. Saltines comes from anchovies which I like @ RM 13 small

famous crab in seremban

This is their signature crab. I asked for their reocmmendation and its steam version. Steam crab with egg white at the bottom and bath with their special soy sauce. this is my first time to eat this version as usually the broth is something else but this is with Soy sauce. however, the crab is fresh and meat is chewy which I like. Broth and egg is something new to me but acceptable.  There are more than 6 diff types of cooking method for this.

Is this the best crab restaurant in seremban? there are a few handfull around the area. Do share to me also.

Every state certainly do have their own flavour profile. Char Koey Teow from Penang, KL, Johor certainly taste different. When last year went to Batu Pahat, I was introduce to this Famous Ah See Wan Tan Mee to try out. This wan tan mee in Batu Pahat have been operating more than 60 years which is all the way since 1950’s yet still thriving today. This street food is famous amongs the locals too.

I was lucky that it was less crowd on that day where usually he do have a long queue.

of course Wan Tan mee need to have, wantan, char siew slices their own chili paste and some add in their own special gravy too.

Chop See Kee (3)

Chop See Kee (2)

Noodle texture here is certainly different. abit chewy, slightly fatter and certainly the sauce that they have is one of its kind. Unique yet pretty good.

Wan ton size here is slightly bigger compare to KL too, in a normal traditionally wan tan mee per plate. Adding their own chili sauce is abit unique but still prefer the original taste which is better. Simple and direct.

Best of all quite similar to Penang version for the char siew slices in red been added.

For a small town that is rich with culture and street food, this place is certainly one of the place to begin with for breakfast.

After this wan tan mee, you can hop to next door for cafe chilling. a place which is rich with collectable items and have rules and regulations to follow.  Cafe Niqiu.

Okay lai lai. This round before I share my full itinerary of Jalan Jalan cari Makan at Batu Pahat that took place last year August 2020. I am going to kick start with this famous hidden cafe known as Niqiu Space in Batu Pahat, Johor. Upon stepping into this cafe, I instantly fell in love deep deep with the whole concept.

A cafe that is run by a young group of people with true passion to put Batu Pahat into a well known town again. As Batu Pahat now is an aging town with many youngsters jet to Johor city or Klang valley to persue their career. Then left this group of young people hoping to bring up the community. I am totally impress by their passion and direction.

Oh well, some of the owners are famous wedding photographer in Batu Pahat. Hence with a few of their strong passion to build up this Niqiu Space Cafe.

A transportation of yourself back into the 60’s 70’s era. I have always love shop which is back dated like during my grandparents time. Huge square box tv, metal filing cabinate, huge ass wooden counter top and many more. When I was brief by my friend about the uniqueness of this concept cafe, I am totally blown away!!!!!  (there are T&C to follow) : for me I got discount cuz my friend know the cafe owner and they were just operating about a month old. SO i get to roam freely.

Niqiu Space (25)

Before entering this cafe: there is a signage that written Do and donts! (as the owner want all of us to respect their space, customer space and enjoy the ambiance)

  1. Do’s
    1. do come in, order your drinks
    2. Sit chill and enjoy the ambiance
  2. Dont’s
    1. Do not move around to take picture everywhere
      1. you are only allow to take picture at your seating area
    2. you are not allow to talk loud (talk like you are in library)
    3. Kids are not welcome (because the whole shop sells antique) anything broken is not cheap !
    4. Space is very limited or compact, hence group movement might not encourage.

Blown away right? but the owner highly want all the customers to comply. I am okay with that. Every establishment have their own uniqueness.

Niqiu Space (31)

Below are more pictures for you to see and enjoy. If you are in this cafe, PLEASE DO NOT take picture like me. I do have special permission to move around like this! Respect the owner’s rules and regulation!!!
