I believed most of us are all familiar with the ever so famous chicken rice ball in Malacca. Undeniable, chicken rice ball is a must try in Malacca.
But let’s draw focus to the other tasty food that you should try out in Malacca!
#1 Baba Charlie Nyonya Cake
Baba Charlie Nyonya Cake is a home-based place where you can get local ‘Nyonya kuih’ at. It would be the best place to get a quick breakfast or a tea time snack. Once you enter the wooden house, you’ll see their workers are either making kuih or packing it.
This is the ‘main place’ where you can find your favorite kuih at! Baba Charlie Nyonya Cake served a wide variety of Nyonya kuih, traditional cookies, lepat chang, Nyonya chang (glutinous rice dumplings), kaya and etc. The Nyonya Chang is different from the normal one in brown color, this is blue and white color. You may choose your Nyonya kuih based on your own preference.
The price is reasonable. The remaining kuih will be delivered to Baba Charlie Café after 3pm.

#2 SamFu Restaurant, Mimosa Hotel
As Malacca is considered as a Baba Nyonya state in Malaysia, Samfu Restaurant serves Nyonya and Asian cuisine located at Mimosa Hotel. The restaurant’s entrance itself is a nice wall mural with a bus and a hawker stall.
Walking in Samfu Restaurant, the design is modern yet classic with an eye-catchy woman on the wall and a cherry blossom tree in the dining space. The classy dining tables and chairs bring us a homey feel.
The menu is a mixture of Nyonya and Asian cuisine. We’ll suggest you try out their Lemongrass ginger drink served in an old-fashioned tumbler. I guess the drinks is best matched with all the Nyonya food as it is really refreshing.
Do remember to make reservation before you heading to Samfu Restaurant!

#3 Pak Putra Tandoori & Naan Restaurant
The slightly crispy and soft cheese naan matches with the crispy tandoori chicken skin and soft meat. The green color chili sauce they provide for tandoori is best matches with the chicken. They’ve brought tandoori to another level.
