Knowing that Paella is a signature dish when you dine at Spanish joint whereby the actual meaning is wopmen gets a day off while men are preparing this massive dish. Calasparra, a low-starch and short-grain rice, is the best rice to cook paella because it is fluffy and can absorb the flavorful gravy very well.

Last round when I was in Melaka, we did alot of food hunt and thanks to Jason introduce us one of his all time favourite nan place – Pak Putra. We were already full day of food hunting and this was the last stop before we head back to KL and all of us were already complaining super full max till want to vomit out.

Pak Putra (1)

Pak Putra is famous among local crowd and now which had grown to draw many attention from other local tourist to hit this place for night hang out area which is conveniently 5 minutes walk away from Jonker Street. It is one of a restaurant that serve Indian cuisine which most of the people are mainly coming here for their Chicken Tandori and Nan, at times it can take at least an hour to be served, that Jason mention that they do not have the man power to take charge off after they had expand.

Pak Putra (2)

Pak Putra (5)

Tandori Chicken was not up to my expectation and according to Jason, it doesnt taste like that, which normally taste much better, which he mention alot of crowd today. Well, still so far my all time favourite Tandori chicken stall is in KL, Ampang area (click here)

Pak Putra (6)

This is another thing must order, which I cannot remember what is the name.

Pak Putra (7)

This is the special nan that Jason ordered. We name it Jason Mumbles Nan!

Pak Putra (8)

AS this is a special customise nan that consist of double cheeze, double egg, double onion, double something else in total with 6 main ingredient to come out this nan.

Pak Putra (9)

Look at how the double cheeze ooze out when we tear it apart!

Pak Putra (10)

This is how much ingredient that we are talking a bout, with one small bites, its rich in taste, and remember that I said every one complain super full, the plate went out to another table never came back. Ended up we order another 3 more this special nan. IT just taste deliciously finger licking good!

One of the place in Melaka to hunt for food, Jason introduce us this fresh seafood that he constantly visit and now, it is not only famous to local crowds as many Singaporean also drop by this place according to him. The place is about 15 minutes’ drive out from the town area towards very ‘kampung side’ Seri Muara Alai Nasir Ikan Bakar and turn into a small lane with sandy rockies road with paddy field at one side to reach this place. We were advice to start the journey early as it is easily filled up very fast. We reach here at 6pm, so the whole place still pretty empty.

haji nasir (1)

This place is located at Alai and by the eatery place name of HJ Nasir Ikan Bakar (Grill Fish).

haji nasir (3)

Now I understand why they said the seafood here is very fresh, some of the fisherman come back from the straights of Melacca, which is not too far from here and he get all the first hand fresh seafood first.

haji nasir (5)

In a hot weather like this, it is always best to sit outside for more cool wind.

haji nasir (2)

When we move over to this mini stall to order our food, we were spoil with choices, with so many types of fish and seafood available.

haji nasir (4)

Then grill fresh on the pit area. . .

haji nasir (6)

All off us were pretty full from some other food hunt earlier, and make it 2nd last stop before heading back to KL.

haji nasir (7)

Small pack of Nasi Lemak was served which is optional, and decided to give it a try, and it was a let down. The rice was damp, not much fragrant and the sambal look very spicy which is not really.

Kam Hiong Clams

haji nasir (10)

Fried Squid were really good, fresh squid which is very chewy and the amount of crispiness on the layer of it, just nice and dip it with chili sauce is perfect. We order another round of it.

haji nasir (11)

Spicy Fried Stingray, well prepared with crispy edge on its tail and the meat in the middle is still very soft, and spread with their own homemade sambal on top just right.

haji nasir (12)

They just cant wait ..  too hungry again . . as we have seperate the right table are all small eaters including me, and on the left are all heavy weight champion eater.

haji nasir (13)

BBQ Prawns

Grill Kembung Fish with sambal.

Cannot deny that the price here is cheap as we paid around RM 20 per pax after divided out and all of this are in 2 portion and the seafood is fresh. Taste wise, nothing to shout about, yet if like kampung style dining, this would be a place to go after.

Continue our food hunt, as direct after the Wan Tan Mee (click here), then our next station that Jasonmumbles rarely miss when he is back to Melaka is one of his favorite stall, Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas which he rate one of the best Asam Pedas that he come across so many stalls which Asam Pedas also know as one of Melaka delicacies.

Asam Pedas (1)

As I have been to the famous Jonker Street (from Donald and Lily’s Restaurant) and I did not know that by walking distance of around 5 – 10 minutes you are able to reach this stall which is located to the newly build hotel by the river if I am not mistaken.

Asam Pedas (2)

This place is damm pack with alot of people with its famous asam pedas that attracts many outstation customer also.

Asam Pedas (4)

The Asam Pedas is prepared fresh daily to cater for their demanding crowd. . .

Asam Pedas (3)

Then you just choose what type of fish you want and choose the extra side dish like egg, chicken, fried fish and others.

Asam Pedas (5)

This would be the normal set that every one would order, asam pedas with a plate of white rice and smack with a fried egg.

Asam Pedas (6)

Of course I always prefer mine with salty duck egg . ..

Asam Pedas (8)

Asam Pedas (7)

Famous for Asam Pedas with their mild curry which is not so spicy yet a bit fragrant and perfect to eat with rice.

Asam Pedas (9)

According to Jason, their taste is not consistent as usually he would usually order a plate of Asam pedas to try first as if the taste for the night is at the best, he would order more. . and if the taste is not on par, he would just finish just one plate, and on that night we had, he said that their quality was not at their best so had just only one order.

In Melaka, there are not many area to hunt for food during at night, as the town rest early . . Luckily our friend which is from Melaka, Jasonmumbles brings us to one of his favourite place to dine, at Restaurant Dung Fung, during night time, is famous for this ONLY stall that sells Wan Tan Mee only at Melaka.

Dung Fung (1)

Dung Fung (2)

Dung Fung (3)

It is quite full house and the stall is operate by elderly husband and wife and helped by their son. Their business is very good and if do plan to come here, do have the patient to wait as you will be expecting a wait of around 15-20 minutes and Jason also mention if it falls on weekend or public holiday the business is crazy as at times can wait till more than 30 minutes.

Dung Fung (4)

A simple bowl of Wan Tan Mee filled with generous amount of meaty Char Siew which I prefer mind to have a bit of fats. The noodle is quite springy and the most unique is that the wan tan mee here do add their own style of chili sauce. My first time having this kind of wan tan mee, a bit sourish and salty turns out to be not bad.

Dung Fung (5)

Well, we finish in 4 bites. . . 😀

Dung Fung (6)

Then I see so many people order their Curry Mee, turns out to be not our style, its a bit weird in taste, not really spicy and a bit sourish or I would just say, just not my type.

Just go for the traditional wan tan mee, wont go wrong. *Non-Halal
