Nyonya Makko Melaka

those of you who dearly enjoy Peranakan food, i would recommend Nyonya Makko which is located in Taman Melaka Raya. I cant remember the exact landmark but remember it being just beside either New Good World Restaurant or is it Hai Keng Restaurant. Either or.

I am not too much a critic when it comes to nyonya food as i rarely go to the other restaurants. Have always gone to Nyonya Makko and will continue to. Here are some dishes that you may want to taste while you are there.

Kangkung Belacan is a vegetable cooked with local malay Chili which is called Sambal Belacan. It is slightly spicy but at the same time sweet.Kang Kung Belacan Nyonya Makko

Otak-Otak directly translated to English is Brain Brain. Funny but it is actually fish meat cooked in Peranakan ways. Do not misaken it for fish brains? πŸ™‚ I prefer original steamed otak-otak though the fried one is not too badOtak Otak Goreng

Asam Fried Fish is also a Peranakan marination. It is a sour tasting fried fish.Ikan Gorent Asam

the Chicken Pongteh is a delicacy that almost everyone tries when eating Nyonya food. Cant really explain the recipe but it is very nice. My mum cooks nicer pongteh with pork. But since all these restaurants are Halal, you’ll have to try the chicken ones. πŸ™‚Ayam Pongteh

After finishing your food, do not forget to try the Nyonya Makko famous Cendol Melaka. With its rich Santan (coconut Milk), you will not regret it. This one, trust me!My Favourite Cendol

After having said all that, here’s a picture of the Front Door of Nyonya Makko. Happy hunting and happy eating! Meal should not cost more than RM 25 per person πŸ™‚Nyonya Makko Front View
