Wake up in the morning and can’t wait to move out from this Harbour Inn Hotel. Immediately after check out it time to eat something special, something local people eating.
Yung Lai Siang Coffee Shop has a stall selling Prawn Noodle, Melaka Laksa and Fishball Noodle.
A cup of hot traditional coffee, enjoying.
Melaka Laksa, if you saw this in Penang then we Penang people call it curry mee but in Melaka they name it Laksa, anyhow it is curry soup with coconut milk. It taste a little bit spicy with strong coconut milk flavor, it taste good.
Fishball Mee is rather normal where the noodle is a little fat compare to Penang yellow noodle and the flavor is just sautéed with a few slice of pork meat.
Curry Puff, crispy puff skin stuff with curry potato. It taste good.
Light breakfast taken and it time to go for next station “Ming Sate Hut” which located at town area.
Ming Sate Hut located very near to Mahkota Parada, famous for its pork satay. I forgot about the price but it range between RM0.60 to RM1, pretty reasonable.
Satay sauce provided taste quite close to Penang Satau sauce which has peanut in it, just that Penang Satay sauce taste sweeter.
Cucumber and Onion has additional charge. Surprise!
We had 5 Chicken, 5 Pork and 5 Intestines. The Satay is nicely marinated and it taste sautéed instead of sweet, I think this is Melaka flavor which is acceptable, meat is soft and juicy. Intestines is my favorite among the 3 different satay. I can only say that the Satay is just normal, there is better Satay somewhere and we prefer those with sweet taste.

Just next to Ming Sate Hut is the famous must eat Nadeje . It is so called the best Mille Crepe and we do agree with that, in our previous visit we eat quite a lot of it. This time we just going to eat one and that all.
The Strawberry Mille Crepe we had is very delicious, it not too sweet and the strawberry sourness balance the sweetness. Each layer fill with whole lot of cream which melt in my mouth, it just so delicious.
It time to meet up with our friend, we have 10 persons in this trip and we rent a Semi-D homestay that near to Ban Lee Siang Satau Celup.
Lins Cottage has a total of 4 rooms with 6 unit of double beds which mean it can accommodate up to 12 persons or if you don’t mind to sleep on the floor then you can easily fit another few more persons. It cost RM380 per night, you may visit Lin’s Cottage blog for more detail. The house is well kept and paint with various color which make it look fresh and nice, the most important is all room and toilet very clean and tidy. Air-con is installed in every room as well, except living room. Only one thing to complain is the water pressure, second floor water pressure is way too low that it took us very long time to bath.
All the four room picture.
Living room, sorry for all the mess we create. HaHa! it suppose to be very clean but due to our luggage it become so messy.
Overall we are very satisfy with the room condition and price, 10 person average down the price for just only RM38 per person.
Hing Loong Taiwan Beef Noodle is one of the famous beef noodle located in Gajah Berang. We try it Beef Noodle Dry and Soup each cost RM4.50 while additional plate of Pork Ribs cost RM2.70.
Beef Noodle Soup, the soup has very strong beef flavor and spicy. The noodle is very close to Ramen which is flat and a little bit chewy texture, beef is very soft and overall very delicious.
Beef Noodle Dry is actually the same as the soup except it has less soup only, they will give you a bowl of soup as well hence it totally no different. It still taste as good as the soup noodle.
Pork Ribs is deep fried on the spot, which is still hot when it served. It well marinated and fully absorb the sauce flavor, it taste a little bit sweet and sauteed, very delicious.

After that we go back to Lin Cottage and get our self prepare for my friend wedding, i skip that part since nothing much to share but i believe you will be more interested to know what we eat after wedding dinner.
To be honest we are quite full after wedding dinner but we still insist to go for second round and that second round is some where near to our house, which is Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup.
Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup is now split into two shop, it on left and right but we do not know which is the original. We choose the one on the right.
Yes we are full but we still take a lot of thing to eat. Haha! Ban Lee Siang Satay sauce is not the sweet compare to other satay celup, it taste a bit sauteed and the ingredient variety is a lot.
This is our achievement of the night.

After second round my friend told us there is one Asam Pedas Claypot that open at midnight which is quite famous, immediately we decide to go for third round. Asam Pedas Claypot Kota Laksamana 1, I am surprise to see the crowd at 1am.
They will served Otak-Otak to every table, the Otak-Otak is the muar version which taste a little bit sweet and authentic.
We decided to try Ikan Pari Asam Pedas Rice Set, Pari fish served in hot clay pot with a plate of steamed rice that come together with salted egg, vegetable and sambal. The Asam Pedas is not that spicy instead it taste sauteed and mild sour taste, Ikan Pari is very soft and delicious.

That wrap up of supper and it time to go home sleep.
The next day wake up in the morning (close to noon) we get ourself prepare and go for our last meal in Melaka before heading back to Penang. We choose to eat Chicken Rice where is a must eat dish in Melaka, we try Chung Wah and Hoe Kee before but both not really impress us so this time we going to try something that local people recommend, which is Huang Chang Chicken Rice Restaurant.
There is step to ordered, first you need to find a table to sit down, then proceed to counter to ordered your chicken rice and pay first then get your number, wait for your food to served.
Chicken Rice Ball 60 units x2. We are so hungry!
Chicken Meat is very succulent compare to those shop in Jonker street which made to cater the need of tourist only, at here the chicken is much more delicious and the sauce is even better.
