CARI MAKAN IN HISTORICAL MELAKA

I now remember the Popiah (Malacca best style). I also remember the nice Malacca Bubur Cha Cha from Glutton's Corner (at the seaside/sea front which now has been reclaimed) at Sky & Night Star stalls which are a few stall away.

Then there's the unique Malacca style Mee Siam, available nearby.

The famous Saturday Ice Cafe is still there and their favorite famous drinks are still there.

Don't forget unique Malacca Char Kuey Teow, which will add at the side of the plate, the sweet sauce (only Malacca has that, maybe Penang also has that?).

This is still available at Sat Ice Cafe.

Koh Lon Mee or Wan Tan Mee is also very uniquely Malacca style where the texture & taste are different from other states. On top of it, they will ask whether to include chilly sauce in their mee sauce when they serve it.

The famous Hainam Chicken Rice at Bandar Kaba I now recall. Many also remember and like the nice chicken & other variety meat rice in the Bunga Raya food lane. At night it sells nice Oyster Omelette (O Chien-in Hokkien)

Then down the road, at night (just before Madam King's shopping complex), there's the nice Yaw Char Kwai & Ham Chee Pheng (in Cantonese)

Nam Wah Chicken Rice is also famous & is still there located on right side coming from St Peter's church, before turning into Ramada Hotel

During our school days, remember the simple Tau Kuah, with sliced pineapple & Cucumber, spiced with the the black sauce & rich red chilly sauce - really yummy; you can still find this at beginning of Tranquerah Road, opposite the Seng Cheong Hall, used to be a Kopitiam shop, next to Shell Station, but now revamped into many stalls. Also used to have the famous Huey Piah (Prawn Crackers, sliced fish paste & tau kuah plus timun (cucumber) there but the future generation could not carry it over.

What about the famous indian chendol at Clock Tower. Its still there but the stall moved & metamorphized. Used to be on a push cart near the Tower, then re-located to opposite the road, then after in a mangosteen shape stall (was really crazy-poor ventilation etc) & now finally in a stationary place in a push cart stall (I think?) in a clean paved place at same location.

I was told the popular among Ujong Pasir ppl, the Malay Mee Rebus in Malacca famous tricycle food cart located in a chinese (halal) shop located in Ujong Pasir, at the cross road intersection of the main road, while the other road leads to the Portuguese Settlement or also to SHC (Sacred Heart Convent, not Sin Heng Chan)

How about Chee Chong Fun (with added yam cake) and Malacca Satay made with shredded pineapple added in the sauce. The taste becomes really unique & is really nice.

As for satay chelup, the famous ones are now located at the junction of Lorong Bkt China & Mill Road (or Jln Temenggong). The other popular stalls are at Ong Kim Wee Road, near/behind the Kubu Stadium side.

I am sure those in Malacca or the Ex Malaccans who frequent Malacca can surely add to my list.
