Malacca Cafe Smile Dec 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant

i have been told that cafe scene in Malacca is pathetic shocked. how can! exploring cafés in Penang was my favourite passtime! I guess it’s the different yumcha culture here.. perhaps Malaccan prefers mamak stalls over café?

anyway, Malacca does have few decent cafes (and abundant of below par ones *wails*). and Orang Belanda Café is one of the better one!

 
Orang Belanda Cafe is located at Jonker Street, at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. parking is usually limited during the day, so good luck ar wtf. we did manage to find one lot not far from the café though *smirks*.

 

 
Orang Belanda Cafe was previously run by a foreign couple; a Dutch husband paired with a French wifey. and only recently that a lovely local girl, Lysa, took it over. the decoration is maintained as it used to be. even the menu and the cooking style are preserved too! the food served are authentically influenced by Dutch and French!

 

 

 
okay I know, the décor might be a lil’ bland compared to Penang’s. but I like how they use bold purple on the wall, contrast with black and white photography and polaroids dangling on the wall!

 
Summer Smoothie | RM 12; (hot) Chocolate “Orang Belanda” | RM 6.50 {highly recommended}
Summer Smoothie is a concoction consisting peach, strawberry, orange and banana! indeed summer-ish with balanced blend of sweet and sour fruits! simply refreshing on a sunny day! it has been rainy these days so glad that yesterday was a sunny day

Chocolate “Orang Belanda” is something more than your usual hot chocolate! saw the powdery residue on the surface? it’s cinnamon! added for extra kick! i normally can’t finish up whole cup myself because it gets jelak after few drams, this, i happily hogged it.

 

 
Crepe Antillaise | RM 13 {recommend}
light and airy French crepe folded in caramelized banana coated with cinnamon (not pictured), dribbled with chocolate sauce, served with fresh banana and whipped cream! the thickness is just right for my liking, not overly thin nor thick!

it’s a sweet crepe, but i understand that some might prefer savoury crepes, and you can find them at Orang Belanda Cafe. i find savoury crepe errr.. weird. but the lady boss, Lysa, begs to differ! she’s a big fan of salty crepe, “just imagine roti canai, it’s weird to have it with banana right?”

who say so.

banana and roti canai can be perfect match too whaaat!

see, one man’s meat can be another man’s poison. taste is such an interesting thing.

 

 

 
Sandwich Bacon | RM 12 {highly recommended}
bread with bacon, seasoned mushroom, caramelized onion, cheddar cheese and green salad, served with mayonnaise.

porky lover (me!) would happily immersed in this Sandwich Bacon, i swear! worth every penny! just loook at the amount of smoky bacon. homemade bread is beautifully studded with sesame seeds. the sandwich itself is juicy and luscious enough, the mayonnaise is merely a decorative item.

Orang Belanda Cafe is a cosy cafe which is a great hangout place. i heard that angmohs (Caucasian) love spending a quiet afternoon there, reading book and sipping coffee ^^. seating is limited though. food is above par! definitely will be back again to try other items on the menu!

most of the cafes along Jonker Street closed at time 1700 or 1800. whaaat! the night is still young the night is not even here! that’s because the shops in the vicinity close after 1700, and robbery happened at the area before so it’d be dangerous to operate at night!

however, Orang Belanda Cafe does operate at night if there’s a group of more than 5 person, reservation is mandatory.

Categories : Western variety | Sweets/Snack | Bakery / Cake / Kuih

 
i was homed during Raya holiday together with my BFF. we were at Mahkota Parade that Wednesday as he had some errand to run and then i suggested us to have a tea break at Nadeje! it’s my second time visiting Nadeje since its opening in year 2006 can chu believe it.

 
seating at al-fresco is too warm during the day.

 
indoor.

 
mille creeeeeepes.

many of my friends who’s not from Malacca told me that they LOOOOVE the mille crepe at Nadeje.

“really that good mer” i scoffed.

 
Roasted Hazelnut Cafe Latte | RM 8
the beverages were decent but i appreciate their coffee art more than the taste.

 
Malacca
a berry local flavour of the Malacca famous Gula Melaka, the authentic Malacca brown sugar

 
Tiramisu (alcoholic)
a high quality of Mascarpone Cheese from Galbani, Italy to excite your taste buds.

 
beautiful layers of crepe and cream topped with gula Melaka gelatin.

i posted this on Facebook page with caption, “what do you think about Nadeje Cake Shop‘s mille crepe?
yay or nay?”

surprisingly there’s more nays than yays. someone also mentioned their service sucks. the wait staffs were hospitable during my visit though.

how do these two mille crepes fair?

i thought both were really creamy and soft, not sickly sweet at all. but we couldn’t taste any alcohol bit in the tiramisu #cheatone, maybe the liquor evaporated? also, we should have ordered one to share instead of two as we felt jelak at 5th spoon

if you haven’t already know, Nadeje is in Klang Valley too! no need to drive to Malacca to have it anymore! yay! i yay cos less crowd in Malacca tongue

Baba Laksa Kahwin Nyonya Asam Laksa | RM 5 ++
Haven’t stepped into this Museum Cafe (read: overly commercialized eatery) for yearsss. The food quality has somehow deteriorated. Must be the fame. Le sigh.

But, I thought this bowl of laksa tasted GOOOOD. Nyonya laksa was bland and dilute on its own, after intercoursing (it’s a marriage ma) with baba laksa, the outcome was pretty phenomenal! Or maybe it’s just me. The broth was slightly spicy with a tinge of sourness!

The cendol, however was blah.

Mami brought us to her new found love during one of my trip back to Melaka *points up*. apparently she enjoyed the food berry muchy that she just had to share the happiness with the family.
menu

Amy Koh, the proprietor of this nyonya restaurant, is a Malaccan Nyonya (duh!) who have inherited the cooking skills from her great grandparents, grandparents and parents. she only started this business upon retirement as a dental nurse.

 
the interior is simple and minimal. this shot was taken right before we left, 2ishpm, time for them to have a break before the business resumes at 6pm, hence the emptiness.

 
paper cutting and framed awards on the wall. she was even invited by United Nations (!!!) as a guest cook for the Malaysian Food Festival few years back.

the expectation was certainly set sky high. the food better be good wei!

 
rice served in this thingamajig basket. guys, rice is free flow, my dad and uncle were delighted!

 
Bendi Kukus
steamed lady’s fingers topped with fried shrimp sambal. berry refreshing.

 
Ikan Asam Rebus
the dish goes so well with rice. all of us drenched our rice with its broth. hmmmm

 
Sambal Jantung Pisang
this appetizer, banana blossom salad with spicy coconut cream dressing, is indeed appetizing!

i went home with a bloated stomach and a satisfied smile on my face.

if there’s only one nyonya rstaurant you would want to visit when you stop by Melaka, make sure you have this one on your priority list! reservation is highly recommended!
