Our Peranakan Lunch At Kocik Kitchen, Malacca

We checked out from St Gildes Hotel Mid Valley around noon... no proper breakfast, each of us just gulped down a bun and off we went.  We wanted to leave 'space' for lunch at the historical town, Malacca!
Forgotten how long it has been since I last visited this state.....
Passing by the red row of shophouses....
Historical sights....
Christ Church....
Beautiful and striking... right in middle of the town and on the way to Jonkers Street...
After some minutes with the parking and searching for food...
we finally managed to get seated at this place called Kocik Kitchen!
Finally get to taste the Creamy Cendol!
Malacca style!
First time taking Ayam Ponteh....
I told my girl that I would do this one day...
She looked at me in disbelief...
Alright, I will take up the challenge!
Fish with Sambal...
Cute Otak Otak Balls...
Cincaluk Omelet...
Love this...!!!  
My favourite Vege!
We were so hungry that everything was finished to the brim....
What a Peranakan Lunch...
Love to come back again...
Hopefully not few years later... 
Ok, as for the bill, it came to around RM100



  1. Great, these pictures shows you had a wonderful lunch...

  2. The omelet looks the best to me! Love the picture of you and your son. And all those pretty golden domes in your first picture.

    1. This is a historical town where the Dutch and Portugese used to stay here those days...

  3. Nice?

    I went to Mako - used to be the best in the 90's when I first went, not anymore. I can cook better. Guess the old folks have died or retired, others taking over...maybe even somebody employed, not family.

    And so many people, had to put name down in a wait for one's turn, for them to come and call. I wanted to leave...but my good friend, Mandy, said we might as well wait since we went all the way and were there already. Luckily we did not have to wait too long.

    1. Oh, I am not familiar with the peranakan food eateries there.. my son took us and he said.. enter, we enter... haahaa... anyway, more or less the same la...

  4. Malacca, food heaven paradise. Owh, scrumptous nyonya dishes. At one time, people crazy about their chicken rice balls but for me, I still prefer the loose chicken rice. Love the cincaluk omelette & veg. Guess you have a great time in Malacca doing your jalan jalan cari makan.

    1. Just a couple of hours and we were off again...

  5. Been there in 1998 after finished my college. Remember that red building very well. Haha.

    I dont think I ever try ayam ponteh before. I thought go to Melacca is to have its chicken rice balls? Hahaha.

    What is on the top of lady fingers? I love lady fingers too and if hubby is at home, I will just boil my lady fingers and then strain them. Fry lots of garlics and pour on top of the lady fingers. Add some oyster sauce too. Simple and delicious.

    1. Dried shrimps and lots of diced garlic... love eating them with the sambal provided...

    2. Melaka is a nice place for cari makan.

  6. The weather now is so hot, nice to have a bowl cendol...

  7. Replies
    1. Yeah.. first time seeing the round round ones...

  8. Lovely food, lovely faces

    ALOHA from Honolulu

  9. Torture leh....can se but too far to eat....happy weekend ☺

  10. Hahaha why disbelief?? I think it won't be much more difficult compared to your potato chicken leh. If anything, you can always use shortcut and cheat with the recipe! XD

    1. hehehe... she always like to challenge me so that I will cook!

  11. The otak otak balls are so cute! Look forward to seeing your Ayam ponteh dish =)

    1. Aiyoh.. you too! hahaha.I hope to do it soon....

  12. When you say Malacca, I think of Jonker street liao.. And chicken rice balls.. Eh otak balls? Never see before leh.. Looks good..

    1. Yeah.. IPOH fish balls.. but Malacca Otak Balls...

  13. Its a pity Malacca is so far down south. If its near to Ipoh, sure will take a drive to eat all these delicious dishes. Have an enjoyable trip and stay in JB.

    1. Yes lo!! From Ipoh, takes us four hours drive at least..

  14. Melaka food also nice, eh?

  15. Delicious food! I like to eat the ladyfingers too.

  16. What!!! You ate Ayam Ponteh for the first time? I had them all my life.
    My wife could make them easily and good. I bet you have no problem too!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
