Malacca City Restaurants

The enticing allure of good dining is as much a part of Malacca's appeal as its narrow roads, antiquated shops and the remnants of European empires. In the last few years alone an overabundance of new dining venues has sprung up around Malacca. Scores of these restaurants are in the vicinity of Malacca’s historic buildings, and some are even located within them. Offering local fare and international gastronomy, most of these cafés, bistros and restaurants have simply sumptuous food.

Most importantly you can’t think of Malacca without thinking of Nyonya cuisine – especially pervasive throughout the city centre. Nyonya fare is a unique blend of Chinese, Malay and sundry cooking styles that has evolved from the social dynamics of the different cultures. While in Malacca, don’t miss out on the chance to taste the ayam pong teh at Makko, the mozzarella chicken at Amigo or the satay celup at Restoran Ban Lee Siang.

Amigo Steak & Grill
If you fancy some sushi or a juicy steak then don’t miss out on the opportunity to dine at Amigo, which serves up a plethora of Western and Japanese fare. Sink your teeth into the mozzarella chicken, crispy onion rings and the simply succulent sizzling black pepper chicken. Western food has long been a popular option in Malacca but this eatery is the best place to go for some great options with its melting pot of palatable flavours.

Restoran Ban Lee Siang

Medan Ikan Bakar Muara Sungai Duyung Melaka

Make sure you try the sambal calamari which allows you to enjoy the real, unadulterated taste of squid. A very pleasant and breezy place since it’s so near to the sea; but be prepared to wait for your food.

Try Restoran Makko – which serves up fare that is noticeably authentic – as it’s been around for some time now.

Nadeje Patisserie

Nadeje Patisserie is a classy and cosy café that specializes in a simply heavenly and delicious mille crêpe.
