Top 5 Epicurean Destination Guide to Malacca

Talking about Malacca, most will only think of chicken rice balls, nyonya foods and Nadeje mille crepes. Hence, during this trip to Malacca, I had been requested for tantalizing my taste buds with delicacies that locals here would go.

Our first destination for breakfast: Pin Pin Hiong Foodshop
- Mee Sua (salted Chinese noodles made from wheat flour)

It's just located near The Orang Utan House. Well, the big crowds could be seen and most were still waiting the foods to be served. The hawkers remained cooking each bowl of mee sua individually in a large wok. I guess this is the way of maintaining the quality and taste of each bowl of mee sua. My mom and I had attempted to cook this dish however,  it tends to absorb a lot of stock too quickly causing a glob of fat noodles.

The flavorsome broth which cooked with porks' intestines, minced pork, sliced pork, pork liver and etc.
I just ordered minced pork/ sliced pork because I didn't favor pork's inner parts.As I sipped spoonfuls of  it, the deep hearty broth warmed my tummy and it's really tasted like home-cooked food.

Observing the other people's ordered foods, I found most had ordered oysters egg omelete and Joel informed that it's one of the signature dishes here. Okay, I will reserve my stomach for it next time.

It's the ultimate combination of exotic spices and epicurean delights with the famous Taiwan noodles at Hing Loong Pork Chop and Spicy Beef Noodles (兴隆台湾面馆). Nah, if you are drooling over Taiwan foods, you shall not miss this out from your foods list!The shop sells mainly fried pork-chop noodles and spicy beef noodles. The owner of the shop is Taiwanese and she is quite friendly as she has personally topped up two slices of fried pork ribs after we talked with her.

By the way, I still wonder what noodles they have used. Are these soya noodles? Hmm..

An extra order of the deep fried pork was ordered to satisfy our cravings.I forgot to capture the flavorsome soup which boiled from the pork bone for hours.

So, what's next epicurean delights that could make your taste buds are on a passage of exhilaration?! We headed to a place which have been well-known to tourists i.e. Sun May Hiong Pork Satay located at Jalan Kota Laksamana, Melaka. It's one of the best satays I had eaten before. What makes the satay different compared to the others is the peanut dip which has mixed with pineapple.


RM0.60 each stock is considered reasonable but I do wish them to increase more meats per stick.

Coincidentally, our food trip theme seems to be surrounded with pork only today.  The plan was to head to a satay celup place at night. However, we opted for lighter food i.e. putu piring which had me intrigued for quite some time. The long queue along the shop which made me wondered what it tastes like!
Round, steamed rice cake with a  mouthful of palm sugar and hugely shredded coconut.
The sweetness is pleasant and obviously this tasty, sweet putu piring is contributed by its high quality gula melaka.

Lastly, not forgetting about the souvenir to be brought back home. The Malacca food trail will be incomplete without Nyonya delights and we brought back Nyonya Chang.For Nyonya food, it is highly recommended to ask locals to provide suggestions.

The winter melon and coriander powder which cause it different compared to the ordinary rice dumplings.
Apart from blue color externally, the pork fillings are cooked with different seasonings.
I couldn't find words to describe it, but I could say that it's definitely worth savoring!!

Our tummies and stimulated taste-buds are thoroughly satisfied!
