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... 
hahahaa...
Ok, as for the bill, it came to around RM100

  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 list...to 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.

  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.

  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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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...
