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.

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!

Recommended for the nan if you do drop by in Melaka~

A few years back where some areas in Penang had been crown with UNESCO’s World Heritage Cities Program, a few area started to grow with small little cafe’s and backapackers inn are mushrooming arond the area (Ryokan Chic Hostel is one of the latest addition to the area) to cater local and foreign tourist which I am hoping it will become a mini like Jonker street in the future, which Penang is lacking of. . .. .One of the latest discovery that was told by my friend to ask me to check it out was this little cafe smack at the junction of New Lane and Muntri street, bye the name of  ‘Behind 50’ . .

50 (1)

The shop is very obvious that it is painted in bright yellow colour walls which is only the single story unit. . .

50 (2)

50 (3)

The whole place is decorated with very rustic feeling, mostly with their own creative design to ensure that the cafe is as heritage as possible . .

with nice photo’s on the wall as deco . .

even use this old classic player to play music for its cafe ..

The cafe is certainly not big that can host only a few tables and mini bar seating area

50 (12)_resize

for a cafe like that to offer that range of food is quite good ..

Like the Ice-Lemon Tea which is very homemade style and under this hot weather, this is just what I need. . . Refreshing sip’s .. .

50 (15)

Mushroom soup wasnt on par with what I expected, as I find it too creamy and thick, a bit blend in taste too . .

50 (16)

I guess this would sure be a another great place to hang out with friends with their drinks are certainly up for grab, and filled with modernize pre-war style deco and the pricing of it is sure quite reasonable  . . . .For food wise I havent really try out on it, and no comment. . .as on the day I went, there were only one guy working which is ‘pau ka liau’ the whole scene  . . . So do have patient that they are lack of man power if you plan to visit here. .

Sometimes I do wonder that how did Jonathan manage to find all the details of eat all you can meal and this round he suggest us to come to this place which he had been mentioning for quite some time. I did ignore him a few times as that time I was quite phobia of tim sum, eat too often in such a short time. It was Friday, so at least we can have something nice. RM28++ per pax.

When we walking, I had that kind of impression that, hrmm..another classic chinese deco style restaurant?

In a 5 star hotel area located at Seri Kembangan do expect to much but did impress a little.

With the menu and tick on the selection of food you want.

Fragrance tea that suits my licking that create a thin sticky layer on my tongue.

The soups were good. We order 4 types of it. Then when we order for 2nd round, the taste difference is quite huge as the restaurant was kinda full house and lack of manpower.

We like this very much, it was fried with wok hei and we order 3 rounds of this.
Very plain loh mai kai.

‘Durian Pudding’ is something plain on the top but when you deep deepper on it, you will find the jewel of the pudding which 1/3 of durian purree at the bottom. We like the ‘Mango Pudding’ more. The ‘Sweet Red Bean with Lotus Seed’ is good too, with quite thick in flavour yet I enjoy it very much.
‘Chilled Herbal Jelly’ is the most bitter jelly that I have come over so far. Even though I like herbal jelly quite bitter but this bitter is extreme but some of my friends they do like it.
‘Red Bean Pancake’ is kinda cold. If it was serve warm directly after fried.
This would be a short post with pictures illistration mostly, but what I would say, with the amount that I am paying, I would go for other shop instead of this one. The food is not bad but the service is pain in the ass with lack of man power for Friday lunch yet alot of Bangla working and the walk like turtle. So do not expect good service.
