Finally, we had visited Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine before leaving Melaka. This is one of the popular Nyonya Food that have good feedbacks on the media. It is Halal and just as what was written by everyone, reservation in advance is needed. Being walk-in customers, we were only offered one of the outdoors tables out of the two, non-airconditioned by there was a ceiling fan.

As we settled down on the outside seats, the servers were quick to service. Service was friendly and efficient when handling their menu as soon as we sat down.

We flipped through the menu and notice that there were only medium and large portions. As the dishes does not contain pork and lard, it is suitable for Muslim's consumption.

The crispy top hat with shredded turnip filling and served with chilli sauce. Glad that it was not too oily.

Lime Juice, Barli & Lime, Cincau - RM 2.00

Each Was looking forward for a bowl of Duck Soup with Salted vegetable and sour plum but it was not available, thus we order their recommended Hee Peow Soup. It is noted as "Nyonya Wedding Soup" with dried fish bladder , quail eggs, fish ball and vegetable.

Hee Peow Soup - RM 25.00

The Nyonya style mixed vegetables was indeed tasty with carrots, black fungus and cabbages..

Ayam Pongteh is a classic chicken stew with soya bean paste, chinese mushroom and potatoes. The portion was generously served with couple of chicken drum sticks and delicious. I love its gravy and perfect to go on our plates of fragrant white rice.

Amy's serving of rice was quite different from the rest of the Nyonya Shops we went in Melaka. Rice was kept in a traditional old hand held basket.

As the basket was quite big and space was rather limited at the outside seats, the servers placed the basket using another table.

Our finisher for the Nyonya feast was non other than the MUST HAVE dessert, Cendol. The green jelly has a soft texture soaked in gula melaka and coconut milk.

Amy Heritage indeed has a given a homely taste to all the dishes. Coming to its portion where minimum order is medium, its not recommended for small group to dine. In addition to things to take note, do make advance booking to avoid disappointment.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/01/lucky-king-bun.html

Was recommended by a friend to this Lucky King Bun in a quiet town of Lukut, Port Dickson. Lucky King Bun is situated at one corner of the shop house, popular for its Pork Ribs & Chicken Curry Bun. If you have been to Seremban, this speciality is also famous there.

The shop is easily identified by the chicken mascot in front of the shop and with a simple glass cabinet displaying big buns. These buns were attractive in its shiny golden brown thin crust.

 Bun is being cut into flower like "petals" using their signature cutting method, revealing the packet of curry in between. Diners can choose to have chicken or pork ribs curry. However, if you want to have both of it, they do offer such combination too.

Buns are freshly make and baked daily. Best consumption period is within 4 hours. The bread is pillow soft and fluffy. It has a sweet taste that you can actually eat it on its own. However who will resist such delicious tasty thick curry that lays in front. Enjoy the meal to the fullest by dipping the bread into the aromatic curry that give u a bursting flavour.

Portion is quite big and best to share with at least 3 pax or more.

Curry Bun - RM 34.00

Looking at most tables, its hard just to order curry bun alone. Each of the table do order some sides. For us we had some greens to go with. Crunchy and not too oily.

Vegetables - RM 13.00

Vegetables - RM 13.00

 
 We had ordered other other side dishes like their soup lala. Lala were freshly cooked and soaked up in tasty broth. Naturally sweet from the seafood and taste were perked up by the use of ginger and green chilli padi, adding on a little spiciness in between.

Soup Lala - RM 23.00

Soup Lala - RM 23.00

 
The popularity of Lucky King Bun is evident and the coffeeshop is fully packed as soon as we dined in. For those who are taking away the buns, it is best to follow their instructions to keep the buns in a cool and dry place, avoiding direct sunlight.

Service was ordinary but they were quick to serve.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/12/nancys-kitchen.html

Nancy's Kitchen is one of the popular places to go for authentic Peranakan Food in Melaka. Looking at its crowd, walk-in customers need to have some patience in the queue.Today's Nancy's recipe has been passed down from generations and this is the 3rd generation. With the precision towards quality of each dish being served and practices strict cooking skill, it is no wonder that the authentic Peranakan dishes bring new and as well as returned customers.

Looking at the lunch crowd on the lower level, we waited for quite a while before getting our seats.

 Interior was homely and air conditioned. The reason why we visited Nancy's Kitchen is because of its popularity and that it is non-halal.

 Being Non-Halal, we get to choose more variety to certain dishes like with pork than chicken.

With the lunch's crowd, we only managed to get seats on the upper level. The kitchen transfer all cooked food using a elevator from the ground level to the upper level.

Steamed Spring Roll aka Popiah is served with turnips , cucumber, fresh bean, coriander leave, eggs, garlic and many other vegetables. It is one of the popular starter before meal and is a must try.

Spring Roll (Popiah) - RM 4.00 / Pcs

Having their last appetizer on the menu, they have this pork fried with bean curd skin on the menu which we often called it Ngoh Hiong. The pork is wrapped with bean curd skin and deep fried to obtain its crispiness on the outside with sweet tasty juicy pork on the inside.

Pork Fried with Bean Curd Skin (Ngoh Hiang) - RM 6.00 (Small) / RM 9.00 (Medium) / RM 12.00 (Large)

Chap Chai is anohter classic Peranakan dish that we will often order. Its a combination of black fungus, lily bubs, cabbage, glass noodles, bean curd sheet and cook with preserved fermented soya bean. It is a stew mix vegetables filled with natural sweetness of the vegetable simply irresistible for young and old. However we find that the style of Chap Chai was too dry for us and was not soaked with gravy.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/12/sunroast.html

As we are on our road trip towards Port Dickson, we stopped by over at Yong Peng Sunroast to fix our stomach. Sunroast has one of the famous roasted delights and has handful of popular reviews. Sunroast looks like a family-run business with their children helping out.

Interior Sunroast While waiting for our order, we ordered Passion Fruit Drink and Honey Lemon drink.

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

 
 Sunroast is specialized in roasted delicacies adopting the use of charcoal method. I do not really fancy roasted pork meat but it was perfectly done without too much fatty meat. The layer of meat and fat were distinct. As for the Char Siew, it was an addiction to me, I cant resist having more pieces of it. It was lean and chewy.

Meat for 3 Pax (Char Siew & Roasted Meat)

Roasted Duck meat was delicious and supported by braised peanuts in its bottom. Glistering skin was crispy and meat was packed full of juiciness. I love the fact that the roasted duck meat was not overly salty and greasy.

One of their specialties will be Hakka 4 kinds of Yong Tou Foo. Freshly made and tasty to go with noodles and rice.

 
Hakka Yong Tau Foo - RM 5.00 Their noodles had caught my surprise. It was springy and fragrant in its black sauce. Thickness of noodle was broader than our "Mee Kia".

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

 
There are two types of rice, the plain one and the one with fragrant. We ordered both to pair with the roasted meat. Rice was on the soft side though.

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

 
Parking is make easy on the grass patch and stones gravel. Overall, if you are passing by Yong Peng, I find that its a worthy stop over for Roasted food.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/11/lavender-flagship-store.html

This was unplanned as we were just looking for some cafe around and that was closed for the afternoon. Thus we drove around and chanced upon upon such a big building by Lavender which caught our surprise and decided to check it out.

The building facade was grand, attractive and precisely one of the reason why we were there. Lavendor Flagship Store consists of 2 level where the ground level was more on their Bakery while the upper level was more of Bistro Cafe.

Upper Level of Lavender -

 L.Table Interior was posh, lavishly renovated to a modern taste and filled with the festive season mood even though Christmas is still more than a month away.

We ordered the nibble platter and shared among ourselves. These finger food were nicely served with grease paper and stainless steel buckets. Nibbles consist of fried calamari, little drumlets and croquette.

 
Nibble Platter - RM 24.53

 Beating the heat with these drinks and under the cooling air conditioned shelter in Lavender, and together with the nibbles it really makes life so enjoyable passing the lazy Sunday afternoon.

Iced Mocha - RM 12.26 & Passion Fruit Lemongrass Frizz - RM 12.26

 Panna Cotta was wobbly and just as what it is supposed to be, smooth and topped with sweet syrup.

Pandan Pana Cotta - RM 7.55

Business was indeed very good and the waitress had came to us for a few times that the selected cakes of our choice had been sold out. We left with no other option but to order the red velvet cake. The spongy soft layer velvet cake was made up of alternate fresh creams and topped with berries that consist of raspberry, blueberry, strawberry and black berry, giving a refreshing taste. Overall this cake texture was fluffy.

Red Velvet Slice Cake - RM 15.56

The belgian waffles topped with strawberry ice cream. These waffles came in set of 4 and heart shapes drizzled with Maple Syrup. Crust was crispy and fragrant with a chewy internal. Seems like I had make a right choice out of Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream as their strawberry ice cream is the kind that I have always wanted. It was not too milky but comes with good strawberry taste.

Waffle Ice Cream - RM 20.75

Ambiance wise, I find that its is very suitable for couples and friends who want to shelter away from the hot weather outside catching up with each other. There are mains like pasta that I would very much like to try if I can be here the next round. On top of that, their service standard is worth mentioning as the communicating with the crews were professional and polite.
