You’re read it right. Having a Melaka trip just for food would give a thought of repeating the food itself for good sake. In fact, the foods are too many to be cover in one trip. Let’s stretch to a few trips plan separately.
Half-Day Makan-Makan Trip at Melaka
Our day started from the night itself where we were traveling from Seremban after a wedding dinner to Melaka for an overnight stay. Late check-in was a trouble when we’re not able to find the exact place where we booked our stay, the freaking Al-Banjari Heritage Guest House.
It’s obviously cheap to overnight at cost of RM20 per person only! Of course the quality is what you paid for. I called the owner to pick up us from the street and he came out to bring us to the guest house and hence the check-in process done with a room key to us. Good service for real, but low quality stay if you choosy.
As it was too late, around 1am, we quickly settled most our stuffs and sleeps immediately.
Our famous food trip, Makan-Makan Melaka was having another round recently. It was tailor made for a group of 4 in one car. We purposely make a day trip just for food. To name a few, there are Satay Celup, Chicken Rice Ball, Durian Cendol, Yam Rice and Cockles.
Jom Makan-Makan @ Melaka (2nd Edition)
16 September 2010
A tiring day trip that everyone of us has to bear. We departed at 6.30am and back at 9.30pm, with almost 15 hours of food hunting. Total of 7 sessions made off for a whole day. Consider a breakthrough for us so far. Glad to be part of it.
With only four of us that day, we were certainly able to fit into sharing the whole travel and food expenses. A budget trip as we called it. The first edition last year had provoked the second edition as we named it. We have GPS Navigator as road helper to help us.
Our first stop was nothing than a regular breakfast in Seremban town. Yes, the famous Hakka Mee had gone in our way so early. I personally eaten this many times, just promote a bit here. A place where senior citizens gathered.
A price per bowl has increase from RM3.00 to RM3.30 (small), RM3.50 to RM3.70 (medium) and RM3.80 to RM4.00 (big) compare to last year.
A typical increase because of ingredients are getting more expensive?
Our lunch cum breakfast is at this famous Jonker 88 Desserts @ Jonker Street. The location is just at middle of the road serves few home-made cendol and ice kacang.

If you do not know where to eat the good food here, just observe around. The shop with many people line up is always the best and well known.
Chicken Rice Balls is one of the uniqueness in Melaka. It’s nothing much different from Hainanese Chicken Rice. We beat our appetite in our recent trip of Jom Makan-Makan at Melaka @ 28 Mar 2009.
Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Ball @ Jonker Street
You can see this Jonker Street board (attached on new renovated building) when you coming from Jalan Laksamana (Christ Church) towards Lorong Hang Jebat. This building known as Sam Shu Gong which sell varieties traditional biscuits and candies. It’s very similar to Tan Kim Hock food distributor that we know 20 years ago.
Melaka (Malacca) is being popular with one of the best of the best, that I ever heard about, Satay Celup. It’s a must eat when you visit Melaka. It is a kind of steamboat with pot of aromatic and orgasmic peanut sauce.
Restoran Capitol Satay @ Melaka
You can have satay celup as snack or as dinner (if you don’t mind the long queue). It’s my second time coming here. I do not know this place until my Melaka friend introduced to me. I’m always be the first batch of customer at 5.30PM when they just opened their shop.
