Top 5 cuisines that you must try in Melaka

Melaka is a food paradise, famous for its tasty local cuisines, which are heavily influenced by Malay, Chinese, Indian, Nyonya and Portuguese-Eurasian flavours. This is a taste that is unique to Melaka and highly sought after by true foodies. Top 5 cuisines that you must try in Melaka:

Nyonya Cuisine

Nyonya cuisine is a mixture of Chinese and Malay flavours, enhanced by the blend of local herbs and spices such as the lemongrass, blue ginger, turmeric, onion, chili and belacan (shrimp paste). Must try the sambal belacan, a spicy condiment blended with fresh chillies and belacan to complement any of the Peranakan specialties.

Chicken Rice Ball

Let’s savour the Melaka’s famous Hainanese chicken rice ball, where the rice is cooked in chicken broth then rolled into balls shaped and served with chicken meat. There is a natural sweetness to the chicken meat, and when dipped into the homemade chilli sauce that is made of red chillies, garlic, ginger and a touch of lime, it will truly give a mouth-watering result!

Satay Celup

The cooking style similar to steamboat, but with a twist where skewers of raw or semi-cooked meat, seafood and vegetables are dipped into a pot of thick, spicy peanut sauce, named satay sauce. Everyone gets to enjoy their choice of ingredients and cooking them in a communal pot.

Grilled Fish or Seafood (Ikan Bakar)

Grilled fish or seafood is a popular dish that can be found in many coastal villages in Melaka.  The fish or seafood are wrapped in banana leaf and can be cooked either plain-grill or sambal-style-grill. There are varieties of fresh seafood for you to choose from and even have the choice in selecting your favourite cooking styles.

Portuguese Cuisine

The unique blend of local and Portuguese flavours will tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more. Must try the Portuguese grilled fish, which is an aromatic, spicy and signature dish that can only be found in Melaka. The fish will be spread with chili-based sauce and wrap in a piece of foil paper before grilling over charcoal.
