Bagus Makan: On to Malacca

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to visit Malacca. Many people go to Malacca for a short break and eat. Yup, a foodie trip. This time, I was going to EAT.


First stop, chendol! I loved that it was simple and there was enough gula melaka in it.


Char Kuay Teow. This was the only dish left on a Sunday afternoon. Everything else had been sold out. This was quite authentic except for the fried onions. I didn’t mind the cut cucumber pieces.

This little restaurant was rather unassuming but it was very crowded on a Sunday afternoon. I learnt that in the afternoons in Malacca, restaurants tend to close. So this shop was about to close and we ordered the only items still available that afternoon. The food was good enough that we wanted to go back again the next day, which was Monday and the restaurant was closed. We went back on a Tuesday and it was still closed. We were leaving on that Tuesday and I was glad that we had a chance to go to the restaurant on this trip. It’s definitely a place to return to for all the other good stuff on the menu.

The chendol and Char Kuay Teow were found at Restoran Jeta Groves, 115, Taman Melaka Raya, 75000 Melaka. Tel: (+606) 282 1526, H/P: (+6013) 626 5922. It is walking distance from Dataran Pahlawan and Hotel Equatorial.


Hot osmanthus tea. This was welcomed just after a plateful of char kuay teow.

This tea was found in Tong Pak Fu, F1-40 & F1-41 First Floor, Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, Bandar Hilir, 75000 Melaka.
