Nancy’s Kitchen is a pretty famous Peranakan restaurant that is located in one of the alleys branching out from the middle of Jonker Street. Even Singaporeans visiting Melaka know about Nancy’s Kitchen to get their Nyonya fix.
Sandwiched between 2 buildings is this tiny food alley called Medan Makan Bunga Raya. Here the 2 stalls at the front are suppose to serve pretty good char siew siew yoke rice.
Just behind the busy alley of Jonker Street, along the more sedate street of Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, one can find the Coconut House. With a name that suits a Hawaiian beach more than the streets of Melaka, Coconut House is actually an casual Italian eatery that serves up authentic wood-fired pizzas as their specialty.
As many would know, Melaka was once a Portuguese colony and even now, there are still ethnic Portuguese living in Melaka, descended from those early 17th century colonists. Most of them stay together in one area near the sea, created by the government and known as the Portuguese Settlement.
Melaka is well-known for its chicken rice balls and Chop Chung Wah is particularly famous for theirs. It’s located where Jalan Hang Jebat meets the Melaka River but it’s not hard to spot as there’ll be a pretty long queue outside it. Even in the blazing hot sun!
