• Restaurant Sin Eng Lock @ Taman Peringit Jaya, Melaka


    Should you want to try some good food in Malacca, you would probably need a local to take you around. And of course not those commecialised restaurants at the historical town. I mean the real local hidden gem.


    Not expecting a grand decor or very comfortable environment. Old school classic kopitiam (coffeeshop) style with foldable tables and plastic chairs. Not too stuffy though, air ventilation considered okay.


    The family run restaurant has been around for 35 years or more and they serve awesome home cooked food.


    Braised chicken feet with cut chillies and ginger

    One of my favorite grandma dish. We used to prepare this dish together, but she's too old to cook now though. Hardly find one that pleases me but this was pleasing.

    Braised pork with eggs

    Extremely tender braised pork with savorly delicious thick gravy. Flavorful!


    Curry Fish Head

    Big portion of fish head prepared with aromatic curry gravy.

    Steam Lala

    Extremely fresh and juicy lala steamed with plenty of ginger, spring onions and or course the traditional Shao Xing wine. Love this very much!

    Wrap up:

    Always crowded especially during lunch hour. Food running out pretty fast, so be there early! Service and serving time is fast.

  • Restaurant Sek Yuen @ Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur


    Sek Yuen Restaurant  has been around for 50 years or more and has a huge following- and no wonder for this might easily be rated as one of the famous old chinese restaurants. Funny it seems, there are actually two outlets with the new one just right beside the old restaurant. The difference would only be that the new outlet is with air conditiong. But then again, both outlets are always packed.


    An almost no decor restaurant with a vintage feel. The only decor would be their fluorescent signboard which was added in the recent year. Tables and chairs actually remain from the 50's.

                                       Restaurant Sek Yuen @ Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

    Food & Beverages:

    The restaurant serves Chinese cuisine and dishes prepared on a 100% wood fire- the old cooking style. Promised fresh ingredients at all times.


    Stir fried eggs with shark fins
    Aromatically fried, not too greasy with generous amount of pleasant-smokey-woodfire aromatic shark fins.

    Roasted duck (Pei Pa Ngap)
    Stylishly roasted with a half-century recipe. Crispy skin with it's well maintained tenderness. Blended well with the sweet and sour sauce served along.


    Stir fried vege with prawns.
    Deliciously fried with succulent prawns.

    Steamed Cod Fish- Ginger soy sauce steamed
    Fresh, juicy and smooth with a natural milky flavour in the palate. Thumbs up!

    Wrap up:

    The bill came out to be RM 109.00. Apologies for no detail price breakdown of the dishes.
    There is no other reason this restaurant is still crowded after more than 50 years.  If you are craving for delicious authentic Chinese cuisine, Sek Yuen would be a good choice. Be early as the restaurant is full as usual and parkings are limited.

  • Yam Rice & Pork Meat Soup @ Restaurant Kok Keong

    Located at the Historical City of Malacca, Restaurant Kok Keong is one of the old renowned restaurants that serves yam rice with pork meat soup.

    Pork Meat Soup (Bak Kee) served with yam rice


    Pork meat soup features slices of pork belly, flour dipped thin slices of meat and various offal-y bits in a herbal rich broth accompanied with diner's choice of plain rice or yam rice. Yam rice is a good choice though- Yam was indistinct in the rice, but you wouldn't miss it. Rice texture was perfect, fluffy and satisfying and absolutely blends well with the thick, inky aromatic soup.

    Brunching pork meat soup with yam rice on a bright sunny Sunday! A perfect meal before the week ends!


    Restoran Kok Keong,
    Jalan Kampung Pantai (one block in from Lorong Hang Jebat)

    Operating Hours:

    730am-2pm and 6pm until the bak kee runs out

  • Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Malacca

    A brunch session with my brother and sis in law!

    Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant by Tropicana- Tai Thong Group of Restaurants, a traditional Cantonese themed pork-free restaurant.

    And if you prefer a quieter environment, here's a good recommendation! Yea, another favored dim sum restaurant with comfortable Chinese interior with a quieter environment in Malacca besides Dynasty Restaurant at Renaissance hotel Malacca. The other hotels in Malacca are incomparable (currently) - unless you prove me otherwise.

                                Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Malacca


    Steamed Siew Mai @ RM 6.30
    Steamed SiChuan Siew Mai @ RM 6.30


    Steamed Chicken Feet @ RM 6.30
    Steamed Har Kow @ RM 5.80


    Steamed Bean Curd Sheet Roll @ RM 5.30
    Fried Fish Balls @ RM 4.30


    Steamed scallop with prawn dumpling @ RM 6.30
    Steamed Cabbage Dumpling with Chinese Herbs @ RM 6.30

    Steamed Shrimps Cheung Fun (Rice Noodle Roll) @ RM 6.30

    Every dim sum ordered taste pretty good, except for the rice noodle roll. The rice noodles layers are too thick and not soft enough.


    Double boiled superior soup with black chicken and chinese herbs @ RM 10.00 Nutritious!
    Braised Hot & Sour Sichuan Soup @ RM 10.00 This is to satisfy bro's craving!

    Fried Vermicelli Noodle with seafood and egg @ RM 23.00

    An ordinary plate of fried vermicelli that leaves everyone questioning its excellency! Good one!

    Enjoyed dining here! The pleasant ambiance with air conditioned comfort with satisfying food delights me.
