Simple Spicy Dinner At Portuguese Village, Malacca

FOR ME, SHOPPING IS A NO-NO IN MALACCA... Firstly, I don't think I need to buy anything to wear and secondly, I walk as slow as a "tortoise"... true, I am still learning how to walk properly and normal again, walking long distance from one shop to another, my legs will definitely lose their "battery."  hahahahaha...  While I chilled out in the hotel room, the rest went out for their shopping spree around the vicinity of Hatten Hotel...

As for me in the room alone, I quickly called up one of my classmates who is residing in Malacca... First question... "Where to get good nyonya food?"  However she recommended that I should go and try out Portuguese Village... Sounds kind of interesting... Since we had never been there, the idea of trying the food there sounds great!
With the help of the GPS, Andy drove to the destination... 
The junction turning into the Portuguese Village....
Easily found our way here...
Lots of ample car park....
It was turning dusk..
The sunset was just right ahead...
Beautiful scene at this time of the day....
Low tide....
And the cameras... I mean handphones... started to click at one another...
And the Portuguese stalls.... 

We sat the Stall number 1 as recommended by my friend...
Quenching our thirst with this.... slurpppp.....
We just ordered out from the menu given to us...
Clams with ginger...
My favourite!
The red sambal was super spicy!!
Portuguese Curry Chicken...
Another super spicy item! 
Thank goodness we ordered one non-spicy dish... 
For this course of meal and fresh juices, the bill came to RM73
These dishes are not "Portuguese" enough...
Next time we should try more exotic ones... 
And as usual, a picture to show our "footmark" at the Portuguese village.... 
Next destination to complete the day is Jonkers Street 
and the famous Nadeje Mille Crepes!


  1. Who's that? Your classmate? She looks so young. Or is she Andy's girlfriend? Wink! Wink! Been to the Portuguese Village a few times but I don't remember eating there. Loved the Portuguese grilled fish at Mid Valley though, very nice, very spicy.

    1. Pretty or not? hehehe.. Yes, everything seems to be very spicy.. :)

  2. I have eaten in that Portugese Settlement area twice. I remember their food was nice and slightly very Eurasian styled with popular Ikan Bakar and signature Cardo Verde soup. They used a lot of cincaluk and the famous Devil's Curry & Egg tarts were in the menu too.

    1. Oh really.. I must go there once again at least.. to try other food..

  3. The only thing Portuguese must be the curry chicken. Nevertheless, you enjoyed very good food!

    1. I love to taste new kind of food.. but the ones we ordered were pretty common..

  4. haha, I always think FOOD is your first priority wherever you go!! anyway, lucky you have a local Malacca friend to recommend you a good place.. the food looked good, and the natural lighting also make the photos look more tempting.. anyway I have to agree with you, like not so "Portuguese" leh, but if the food is good, who cares?? :)

    1. hahahaha.. Maybe we were not adventurous enough.. must order authentic Portuguese food next time!

  5. Beautiful shots of the sunset. Not for me if the food is too spicy.

  6. Beautiful sunset. The chicken curry oil looks very red and spicy!

    1. Yes, I think you can managed the spicyness but not me...

  7. Nice photos! Lucky got order non spicy food or else the stomach would be burning all night.

  8. Lovely wefie shots!!

    Hungry looking at your food.

    1. I think you can cook those.. quite common actually...

  9. I like all the foods you all order except the lady finger, no thank you...

  10. Not Portuguese enough? I think they were not Portuguese at all! Hahaha! The lala and sotong looks like what Malaysians would eat instead of Portuguese :P

    1. hahahaha... not exotic enough too! Ok, next time I order all Portuguese cooked ones.. .

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
