The Dirty Stall

[Melaka] Coconut House

Posted on: September 21, 2010

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.

I do believe their claim to fame is being the only place in Melaka that wood-fires their pizzas but it’s not something I can verify. Nevertheless, the Coconut House has a nice retro-European feel to it, giving you the feeling of being transported back through time.

Rumour has it that there used to be a coconut tree growing in the courtyard but that’s not the case anymore.

This was the meat-lover’s pizza that I ordered, can’t remember its name anymore. But it was quite delicious, which you can probably tell from the photo already. The crust was also thin and crispy, very flavourful from the wood-fire.

Another interesting pizza they have is the pocket pizza, which is basically something like a small pizza folded upon itself, much like the Italian calzone. Great for a quick bite!

Overall this is a nice place to visit if you want to soak in the olden-days atmosphere with some decent Italian pizzas to fill your stomach if you’ve eaten enough of the local delights.
