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

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.

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.

There area few stalls, and Capitol Satay in Melaka is one of the most famous one. Be prepare to queue for at least 1 hour for normal days and if it is long weekend, it could be from 2-4 hours.

This place is only 5 minutes walk from the famous Jonker Street.

This is my third visit to this stall over past 3 years. It is average about once a year, which is also the longest queue for me by far. I was luck to visit this place during my working trip on weekdays and it takes less than 30 mins to get a seating.  As the picture above, it is on weekend and I reach at 5.30pm. Waited for about 40 minutes for a table.

Capitol Satay (2)

Like any other best satay celup in Melaka, you are free to pick any ingredient from the fridge. It is all calculated base on the sticks that you have. Also each stick are painted different colour to indicate the pricing.

Capitol Satay (2.1)

The bread is amahzing. Do grab a plate of it. The rest is up to your liking. It is rather simple for a squence over here. Grab a tray, pick the item/skewers that you like and put it on your tray. You can come back multiple times till you are fully fed.

For every famous satay celup in Melaka, they got their own secret recipe. For this outlet is their peanut and the last can on the right. That’s their secret mix of spicies powder.

Capitol Satay (8)

The will mix a large bowl of the spices and peanut and pour it into the mini pot right infront of you. Do note that on and off there will be some one coming to your table to stir on the pot. This is to prevent the peanut from sticking at the bottom.

satay Celup

Lets dig in. each stick is from RM 1 onwards. So look at the price board next to the fridge. Average per pax here is about RM 15- RM 20 per head.

Satay Capitol

Satay Celup is consider one of the Top 10 street food in Melaka that need to have if you are here. I second on that. However I find that the quality of this shop, the taste had changed. I felt that year 2018 and before, it taste much better. The fragrant of peanut, spices and others are more prominent.

Another that I used to go is Restaurant Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup.

How many of you would thought off that walking up and down in Jonker Street that there is actually a hidden gem in this street. The Daily Fix is one of a latest introduction by my friend that I should not miss out this place for my next visit to Jonker Street.

Love their whole setting as it do gives you slightly three different types of interior from the front yard to the center dining area and the back part of it. Filled with all classic items from benches, tiffins, old tv, plates are all as the main part of decor, that their cafe operating area which is the heart of it that makes it slightly modern.

Quite a nice offerings that they have in their menu as we were quite full from the pork satay meal  which is a street away, we decided to order their signature.

Daily Fix (11)

Durian Cake is one of their top seller that the cake is serve slighly warm and love the fluffiness of it. Top with fresh durian meat on the top with a dash of gula melaka makes it a perfect combo with my coffee.

Daily Fix (12)

Daily Fix (13)

Love their Latte @ RM 10.50. coffee too as it is not too strong to my liking, which is not too acidic too. Frothing is just perfect.

Daily Fix (14)

See thru in instagram, alot foodie hunt for their Local Pandan Pancake @ RM 13.90. Made from juicy pandan leaves extract, serve with gula melaka and coconut. For such a price, I totally have no complain on it as they serve it with 5 big round fluffy pandan cakes. Best recipe is their coconut. Not too sweet that makes it a great pairing.

It seems that coconut shake in Malaka do take a big hit after the commercialize of Klebang Coconut shake. However, I was recently introduce to this stall by a local friend that Ah Lai Coconut Shake, located in Kampung Alai is one of their favourite.

If I remember correctly, this taste slightly better as to compare with Klebang Coconut shake for its sweetness and this stall is slightly creamier. Worth to give it a try as this stall is about 20 minutes away from town.
