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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

While walking around suddenly found this creepy area that the people around that area pull a prank on it. Loooks like some 1 got burried.

The very historic place of Malaka or the jewel of it. The A’Famosa, the only pieces left of the whole fortress.

Just realise that now Melaka had turn into so historical place to explore. I wish that Penang also had this kind of development.
The most famous street in Melaka. Jonker Street.
Please…I need fare to go back KL…my partners left me behind.

Watch out on crossing the road.

A street performance by this uncle. Blowing old classic chinese music.
Pity him that, he was trying to so hard and not many people walk pass that gave him money. He was nearly out of breath.
I thought this is the biggest toothpaste cover that I ever seen, mana tau is for putting toilet rolls. Y not tissue box. If it was for tissue box I would buy loh~

The very main entrance of China Town a.k.a Jonker Street. On the right is the famous night market and full of food to be hunt. On the left road is more on clasic area with temple and some old stores.
I felt that, this is a shop that should not be miss. A classic historical shop that mention about the small feet back in the days of China.
The shop owner were very friendly. Explaning how all this happen and this shop been operate by the family for a long long time already.
All these can be bought for souvenir. Cute yet classic.

The place that attracted alot of tourist for photoshot in the afternoon. That’s what I thought.
To take a shot with the Iguana or Phyton, you have to pay RM10 to the ah pek using their camera for a shot and print a pic for you. So you can take as many pic as you can. The ah pek very high tech also. Instant print out for you. Using the Canon external photo printer. Got kinda shock when he used that.
During at night, it has become a good place for alot of photographers. Filled with lights and alot of nice shots can be taken.

the Famous Night Market. Jonker Street. Food and Souvenir.
This uncle is in the would Guiness Book of record for using his Qi Gong to break coconuts in the shortest time. We were standing there quite long, turns out to be more talking than performance. By the time we left he still have finish talking. GENG!

During late nite, we went to Geographer Cafe for drinking and also to see people dance.
This guy, the most attractive and eye catcher of the night. Wear so yeng and dance cha cha, Rumba and a few other dance stance. He is also very geng in dancing Micheal Jackson moves which the owner purposely put a song for him to dance. Pretty cool and we were all giving full support for him~

Group dance that any 1 can participate. So Jon and Kenji went, as they were high on alcohol d.
Alot of things happen after this dance and I was warn not to upload in here.
and let me present you the group that sing miserably on the road. The BaiBai group.!

An hour after our breakfast and check-in into hotel, headed to this placed called Jonker’s walk area. To try out the Chicken Rice ball. A thing that was told must not miss.
When we reach there, the crowd is just so gilar.. a bunch of people waiting outside including us under the hot sun. Luckily, we did not wait long to be seated inside. This picture of queing is after our meal. Siau..even people take umbrella to que.


The ah pek never stop chopping on the chicken.


The reason of so many people waiting outside is the shop have limited space.


What I have been told by my friend, that the chili here is very nice. Me being want to try on everything, so just take lah~

The most famous thing in this shop is the ‘Rice Ball’. I find it its quite sticky, yet tasteless. If it was abit dry and flavourful, surely it would be nice.
The chicken chop till so geli and was inform that the ah pek had help us to remove the bone. Nothing special on the chicken to comment about.
This shop is nothing special about it which I feel, there is other chicken shop in KL or PG taste much better than this. Just that its in Rice ball form but one of the most famous shop around the area. What I feel on this shop is OVERRATED!
