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... 
hehehehee...
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.

  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.

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

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 …
