I just want to share some of the dishes we tried during our short 3 days 2 nights stay in Melaka recently. Firstly, we arrived quite late on our 1st day, 8pm+ to be exact by the time we checked into our hotel. We didn't go up to our room immediately, we just went back to our car and looked for the nearest restaurant we could find so that we could have our dinners (don't want cranky hungry kids!)
So, this is what we saw... Makko Nyonya Restaurant! Location: 123, Jalan Merdeka, Taman Melaka Raya, 75000, Melaka. Malaysia. (Phone: 06-284 0737)
Ambience and environment around the restaurant is cozy and quiet. There's about 2 other families in the restaurant when we were there.
After we placed our orders, we were served with a plate of tapioca crackers (RM2 per plate) while we waited for our food. Our kiddos seem to enjoy the crackers and when I turned around, I noticed the restaurant sell these crackers too. I didn't find out how much these crackers were being sold for though I did mentioned to hubby maybe we should buy few packs home hahahaha...
I will start with the not so nice food first... these fried chicken arrived first and we ordered 3 plates of rice, each rice RM1.20 (3rd plate to be shared by Benjamin and Alyson). I don't really like this dish as I feel the chicken meat is a bit too hard to chew on. I only had a piece and the rest was finished up by my poor hubby hahaha.. (Price: RM10 for small dish)
Next up is the chicken pongteh. I first heard about the pongteh word from one of the mummies in my FB mums group that I joined in. Tastewise, a bit too salty for my liking but hubby likes it. I feel it is like those soy sauce chicken dish, only that the potatoes are much more saltier. (Price: RM10 for small dish)
Egg is my favorite, but somehow with my 3rd pregnancy, I don't really crave for eggs all the time but this time, when I saw the prawn omelette, I went 'mmmmmmm' and whacked most of it hahahaha... this dish is nice! (Price: RM9 for small dish)
This has got to be the best dish for our dinner that night. Fried fish with salted sambal. Yums to the max! Hubby and I fought over it, luckily our kiddos are not into spicy foods else all 4 of us will be fighting over this dish! It is very very delicious, especially when dipped with the sambal and the fish is just crispy and juicy enough. (Price: RM36 for small dish)
And finally, of course I have to complete my dinner with an order of cendol! It is a bit too sweet but I've been on some sugary fasting (due to my glucose blood readings) but decided to let go and go crazy with sugary stuff for this trip hahahaha! I shared this bowl with my boy (he just had a few spoons of it only) (Price: RM4.70)
Total bill? RM75.30, a bit too pricey for me but it's not like we always go on holiday and feast like this. Thanks for reading!
