Spread the love

People can have a great time in Malacca simply because there are a lot of historical sites to explore. But, what usually happens after a full day of exploration? You have to get fed, of course!

Fortunately, Malacca is filled with a lot of different eateries that will surely make you full in no time. The good news is that you do not have to scour the entire city for good eats as I will recommend some of the best places to eat in the city. After you eat, you might want to party with some lovely girl escorts in some of the pubs in the metro as well.

Jonker 88

Located in Jonker Street, Jonker 88 is an eatery that you want to go to, especially if you want to cool down. That is because this place is famous for its Cendol, which is a shaved ice dessert that is filled with coconut milk and topped with starched noodles with
Pandan flavoring.

Aside from cendol, Jonker 88 also serves up some delicious Nyonya Asam Laksa, which is sour and spicy at the same time. And when I say ‘spicy’, I mean you will perspire even more after you eat it.

Lung Ann Refreshment Kopitiam

Kopitiam is the Malaysian word for coffee shop and if you want a simple and traditional coffee shop like you used to go to back at home, then you definitely have to go to Lung Ann Refreshment Kopitiam.

This place serves breakfast dishes along with their special brewed coffee. This establishment is a family-run business and the owner is saddened by the fact that this place will have no inheritors.

Still, I want you to enjoy what they offer here before it’s too late.

Capitol Seafood

Seafood might be quite expensive back in your country, but not in Melaka. Head over to Capitol Seafood to find a vast array of different seashells and clams to choose from. You can also say to them your perfect cook and I recommend them to be half-cooked
for a much tender meat.

Aside from that, they also offer century egg with ginger slices that are quite tasty and are sold for a very affordable price.

Sun May Hiong Satay House

This place is famous for its homemade Satay Sauce. It is so good that even the locals say that they serve the best in the city.

Anyway, you can find so many barbequed pork here and that is because it is the perfect match for their iconic satay sauce. The best part of all is that all of these can be yours for a really inexpensive price.

Pak Putra Tandoori and Naan Restaurant

Sample some amazing Tandoori chicken at the Pak Putra Tandoori and Naan Restaurant. They have a vast assortment of Naan to go along with the chicken and you must try all of them to find out which one you prefer the most.

You have the option of either eating outside (alfresco) or you can also choose to dine inside as well. Do note that their restaurant is not air-conditioned.


What comes immediately after the main course? Dessert! That’s right and if you are like me who has a sweet tooth, then finish your day by heading over to Nadeje.

This restaurant serves crepe cakes that come in a variety of different flavors. You can either have it with alcohol or you can also choose the ones without.
