The Most Wanted Malaccan Desserts: Cendol
by Sofiaghazemy about 9 years ago

Take a stroll by Jalan Hang Jebat or the well known "Jonker Walk" & search for this famous dessert! Basically, it is a bowl of shaved ice with coconut milk mixed with a green-like jelly and topped with a thick Malaccan palm sugar. There is something about Cendol that I would love to share with you guys. Everywhere you go in Malaysia, you would definitely see Cendol sold by the streets, but what makes Malaccan Cendol more unique is the use of their special Malaccan palm sugar. In Malay, the Malaccan palm sugar is translated as "Gula Melaka". Price at: RM 2.50. Get them at: Anywhere along the streets of Jalan Hang Jebat or Jonker Walk.

Baba & Nyonya Cuisine: Ayam Masak Buah Keluak.
by Sofiaghazemy about 9 years ago

If you're in Malacca City, try out Malaccan local delicacies at Kocik's Kitchen Nyonya Restaurant. This Nyonya or "Peranakan" cuisine combines the ultimate flavour of Chinese, Malay & other influences into a unique blend.

I have eaten here a few times and I found out that this restaurant served the best among the best!


1. Ayam Masak Buah Keluak ( Buah Keluak's shape & appearance closely resemble the Brazillian Nut) .
2. Steamed Lady's Finger.
3. Plain rice.

Note that you would be given a tiny plastic spoon when Ayam Masak Buah Keluak is served in order for you to scoop out all the contents in the hard shelled nut. Ways of eating it is really easy, this is Malaysia, everything( the content,the gravy & the lady's finger) is mixed up partially with the plain rice by using your hands & prepare yourself for wanting more!
