The laksa and rendang that comes with the nasi lemak are just divine. Reasonably priced, clean and friendly owners add to the ambience.

My hubby and I did a day trip to Melaka again on the 3rd week of May. This time, we had the chance to try their Laksa which most backpackers have been raving about. Overall, the flavour is there but it was a little too salty for our taste. If not for the salt, I think the dish would have... More

had only their cendol as my hostel was next to this place. from the various slips of complimentary notes pinned on the walls, their nonya laksa seems really popular. i only had their cendol, which is excellent too. but to be fair, you can't go wrong with cendol. anyway, this place is very clean, and food is always freshly prepared.

We visited this cafe on our last day, we though we would try the Nasi Lemek with Chicken, unfortunately they had run out of chicken so we had what was available, and it was very good and very reasonable priced. The owner was very hospitable and explained some of the ingredients which added to our enjoyment.

We came across this cafe through one of the local bloggers who blog about its popular and delicious Nyonya Laksa and its authentic cendol. It is apparently very popular among the backpackers that had tried there too. Unfortunately, we went there quite late, around 3pm, after lunch hour.Hence, the laksa was finished. We did try the cendol and I have... More
