    Pak Putra Tandoori and Naan Restaurant

    Many rarely believe us when we say the best tandoori and naan can be found in Malacca (where Peranakan food clearly rules), but one bite of Pak Putra’s fluffy naan, together with its moist tandoori chicken will have you nodding in agreement. Tables line the streets, and service might be slow when busy, but it is well worth the wait and price to get your hands on these finger-licking South Asian dishes. As an accompaniment, give their lassi drinks a go, too.

    • Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 18:00 – 02:00

    Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine

    If awesome Peranakan food and spectacular service sounds right up your street, then swing by to Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine restaurant for an experience you simply can’t miss. Amy the restaurant owner is chatty and always eager to greet returning guests and first-time visitors to her property. We recommend the delicious Nyonya pai tee (crispy deep-fried puff stuffed with vegetables) and chap chai (mixed stir-fried vegetables in bean paste) from her kitchen. Just make sure to come with an empty stomach, and a penchant for spicy food!

    • Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 11:30 – 14:30, 18:00 – 22:00
    • Address: 75, Jalan Melaka Raya, Taman Melaka Raya, Malacca

    For the best chicken rice balls in town, head over to Kedai Kopi Chung Wah. The popularity of Chung Wah is massive: people can be seen lining up under the hot sun for a plate of this chicken rice goodness, and while you might wonder if all the excitement is overrated, think again. Selling the cheapest, only-in-Malacca cuisine and some of the most flavoursome rice balls we’ve had for a while, Kedai Kopi Chung Wah deserves all the hype, and then some. Read More...

    Capitol Satay Celup


    Satay celup, for the uninitiated, is raw meat on skewers dipped into a hot pot of thick, spicy peanut sauce, and you can leave it for as long as you like, depending on how well you want the raw meat to be ‘cooked’. A pioneer of the satay celup business since 1950s, Capitol is one of Malacca’s favourite haunts for this fiery awesomeness, and like most popular restaurants in town, a line of hungry diners are often seen outside the entrance of this eatery. Guests are encouraged to leave as soon as they finish eating to allow other diners to occupy the tables, but that doesn’t mean that you should eat in a hurry – this is, after all, a spicy affair!

    • Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 17:00 till late
    • Address: 41, Lorong Bukit Cina, Malacca
