Hidden Finds in Melaka
During our recent visit to Melaka to attend a function, we were introduced to Patisserie / cafe that serve the most fantastic Mille Crepe. In case you are wondering, Mille Crepe is a cake made from layers of crepes. In between it will normally have a fresh cream and coated with maple syrup or different variety of flavours. Surprisingly, this patisserie originated from Melaka itself, before recently opening their 4th branch in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

The BKT is the herbal style, similar to Klang type. However, the soup is a bit bland and the liver are overcook. Average at best.

During this trip, we also ate at the other popular place in Melaka such as:
Kedai Kopi Chung Wah
Kota Laksamana18, Lorong Hang Jebat, (Jonker Street)
Melaka, 75200, Malaysia
Op Hours: 7.30 – 15.00 (but normally close earlier as they run out of chicken)
Must try: Chicken Rice Ball and steam chicken with their chilli.
Personally it is good to try it once. The chicken rice balls are still done by hand. It is solid and not mushy. The chicken is more towards a kampung chicken style, resilient, have more chicken taste but the owner like to chop it until the bone is all over the place. If you are a frequent visitors to Melaka like us, the novelty will run out and you won't like to cue for so long.

This establishment is one of the renown Peranakan restaurant in Melaka. Unfortunately, they have become to famous for their own good. The quality of the food has been in steady decline, while the price has been going upwards. Tourist still flocking this place due to their names, but we personally don't think it deserve our stomach space.
Holiday Inn Melaka
Jalan Syed Ab. Aziz
Melaka 75000 MALAYSIA
(Located beside Hotel Mahkota, behind Mahkota Plaza)
The latest hotel in Melaka. Clean room, nice amenities, comfortable bed and pillows, close to everywhere and reasonably priced. We always enjoy our stay in Holiday Inn group, so this time around it is not much different. The best part I manage to watch the Champions League Final which was shown in the bar on a big screen.
Food from the room service, Ratings 7/10.
