Nadeje Cake House

Nadeje Cake House, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: SK-09, 2nd Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Mid Valley City, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It was quite disappointed during my visit to the Nadeje Cake House in Kuala Lumpur because the service at Mid Valley was not good. My previous two visits in Malacca were good and their staff were attentive. However, my third visit in Mid Valley did not turn out to be a pleasant. The waiters are foreigners and they are not as attentive as those local ones I met in Malacca.

Mistakenly, I ordered the cold Iced Cafe Latte with cream when I was so cold in the cinema before this. It was nothing great about their drink, maybe it was not their specialty. The background is the original favour crepe cake.

All of our cakes were mistakenly swapped with the table next to us who ordered three cakes as well. We took all the pictures of the caked before we were told they have made the mistakes. The above cake which we thought it was tiramisu but in actually, it was dark chocolate.

All cakes are same price, so to the waiters, it is fine, not a big deal to make such mistake. However, as a diner, my dining experience turns bad and I did not get to enjoy the cake I want to try.

A&W

A&W, Dataran Pahlawan, Malacca, Malaysia.
This fast food outlet is getting lesser and lesser in Malaysia. I missed the chance to have it in Taman Jaya. I tried it again in Malacca’s branch. It is quite a lot of people still liking A&W and there was a birthday party on the night I visited the fast food outlet in Dataran Pahlawan.

Coney Dog Set
A&W
Each time visit A&W, either I will choose the coney dog or the waffles. For dinner, I go for Coney Dog set with curly fries and root beer. I did not add float ( ice cream ) but they are  kind enough to add for free ^^ ( It was added by accidentally ).
A&W
It is very satisfying eating it, you can choose either to have chicken or beef for the burger and drinking the cold root beer. Full, very full, I wish to go back for waffle on another day.

Location: BD-007 & BD-093a. Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, Jalan Merdeka Bandar Hilir Melaka, Malaysia.
Ambiance: Spacious outlet and not crowded even through that night this outlet was having a birthday party.
Rating: 5/5. Maybe it is a little expensive to eat here compared to other fast food such as McDonald and KFC. However, the unique part of A&W is the root beer, where only here served the best root beer. Some people said that their fried chicken is also nice besides the waffles and coney dog.

Nadeje Cake House

Nadeje Cake House, Malacca, Malaysia.

A famous mille crepe cake house in Malacca which is also listed as one of the must visit place in Malacca. And, again, you have to queue and it depends on how many people in  the waiting line. Besides serving cakes, this restaurant does offer main dishes and drinks too.

We tried a few flavour such as original, milk tea, lemon cheese, caramel and rum and raisin. I did not try the lemon cheese, however, I guess it is pretty nice. The milk tea is similar to the normal milk tea drink.

Address: G-23 & 25, Jalan PM4, Plaza Mahkota, Malacca, Malaysia.
Ambiace: Spacious, yet not enough to hold the crowd. Quiet and relaxing area.
Rating: 3/5. All the cakes tasted normal to me.

Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball

Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball, Malacca, Malaysia.

Next mission is to queue here for the chicken rice ball. It took about 1 hour to queue before we get our table in the morning. Therefore, by the time we get our table, it is just right time for lunch.
Chung Wah
It seems to be by default, the chicken for 3 persons is half. Yes, you can always order more if you wish especially when the chicken is small! They have steamed chickens only. By the way, is this half a chicken?
Hainanese Chicken
Chung Wah
If not mistaken, they just put soya sauce and some sesame oils on to the chicken before serving. The steamed chicken is tender and smooth. Only drawback is the potion of chicken is quite small. Presentation wise, is failed.
Chung Wah
As for the rice balls, each plate consists of 5 balls. A plus point for this rice ball, as it tasted good and moist. Besides that, they offer “default” drinks as well. The little girl served us with 3 different drinks and we chose from there.

With default services and food, I think queuing for 1 hour is more than enough and almost can say good bye to this shop for my next visit. I do not understand why it is so famous and people must queue for this shop.

Address: Kedai Kopi Chung Wah, Lorong Hang Jebat, Melaka, Malaysia (Next to Hard Rock Cafe)
Ambiance: Noisy, quite spacious.
Rating: 2.5/5. Small portion for 3 adults. Limited choices.

Capitol Satay

Capitol Satay, Malacca, Malaysia.

We wanted to try this satay celup, even though we know it would be a long queue. We queued almost two hours for our table. I can say, we queue for dinner and eat as supper. However, it is still worthy for the time.
Capitol Satay
Why do I say so? It is still maintaining its original recipe, taste and cooking method. I cannot be sure there is no recycling of satay sauce as per claimed, however, so far after few times of trying it, we did not see them doing so and no “alien objects” was found when the pot of satay sauce was placed on our table.
Capitol Satay
So, let us start eating, although hungry, I did not take many and still choose a few ingredients that I liked. I liked the beancurb puff and it is able to absorb the sauce very well. I chose the Taiwanese sausage instead of normal chicken sausage and some prawns. It is really filling after a few rounds of dipping.
Capitol Satay

Location: 41, Lorong Bukit Cina, Malacca, Malaysia.
Ambiance: Small shop, crowded and hot.
Rating: 4/5. Thick, original and authentic satay sauce. Although, it is pricey and long hours of queuing, it is still satisfying.

Jonker 88

Jonker 88, Jalan Hang Jebat (Jonker Street), Melaka, Malaysia.

It is one of the famous stalls in Malacca town and most of the tourists will drop by to have a bowl of cold cendol and popping hot nyonya laksa. I went to this shop during its off peak hour on two different days to try their food once again.

I visited this shop 4 years ago with friends. It is great to be back here and things changed. The stalls used to be operated by the roadside and now it has shifted inside. It is better and more hygiene. And of course, the price also changed.

Nyonya Cendol

Cost at RM4.00 now, it has lost its glory, they used to be thick gula melaka taste. It used to be mixed well with santan and it is irresistible during hot day in Malacca. I liked the strong gula melaka taste. Maybe now I need to double up the gula melaka.

While eating the Cendol, the Malay lady next to me was eating Assam Laksa. I think I have not tried the Assam Laksa before this and I asked her comments for the noodle. After that, I decided to get her help to “jaga” (look after) my bowl of Cendol, while I queue for a bowl of Assam Laksa.

Nyonya Assam Laksa

Shall I compare thee with Penang Assam Laksa? If can, I prefer penang version. Cost at RM7.00 now, it is pricey. It used to be between RM3-4. Sadly, it is nothing to shout about. It consists of some mackerel, 2 foo chuk with fish paste, 4 tau foo pok, 2 prawns and half egg. Cheap ingredients not supposed to be this expensive when we are just eating at kopitiam.

The next day, I went to this shop again to try the Nyonya Curry Laksa. They open at 9.30AM and it is less people at this hours. I guess people are queuing for the dim sum house next lane.

Nyonya Curry Laksa with Chicken

It is nice, still the same. It costs RM6.00 per bowl. I feel I am lucky enough to order the curry laksa with chicken, else I think its ingredients are too little to fill my stomach. It consists of 2 foo chuk, some bean sprout and vegetables and half egg. I chose to go with vermicelli instead of yellow noodle. Some people would prefer to have combination of both types of noodles.

Half way eating, the owner (maybe) was sitting down at my table. She does not look happy or maybe she’s tired. What kind of life she is leading?

As a tourist to this place, trying food at this shop, perhaps it is a common checklist in the itinerary. I wish to explore more food either from this shop or somewhere else within the Malacca City.

Location: No. 88, Jalan Hang Jebat, Malacca, Malaysia.
Ambiance: Crowded at most of its time. Not an ideal place if you late for your lunch as you have to queue and wait for a seat. The shop is very small.
Rating: 4/5. I still give 4/5 for its authentic taste of the food I tried here although it is pricey. It would be perfect 5/5 if the price is reduced a bit and restored its original taste.

A’Famosa Chicken Rice

At last, I went to try the A’Famosa Chicken Rice which is also located at Jonker street, few shops away from Hoe Kee Chicken Rice. During the peak hours, you still can find place to sit because they have plenty of big tables and if you don’t mind to share table with unknown people then you’re welcome in.

This shop offers more varieties than the other two shops. It has barbecue pork and siew yok. It has more vegetable selection as well. More interestingly, you can order ice kacang at this shop.

Roasted Chicken
You can choose either to get roasted chicken or steamed chicken. I still prefer to go for roasted chicken. It comes with soy sauce too. Overall, the chicken is quite a lot, I think it is a half chicken. The meat is not dry and still juicy.


Barbecue Pork

We ordered a plate of barbecue pork and also requested it be less fat. This is what we got. I quite like the barbecue sauce that they put on top of it.

White Fresh Tauhu
Simple dish that everyone knows how to cook it. It is fresh, smooth and tastes good with some fried onions. Of course, the tauhu is not made by themselves, you can find it at any supermarket. 🙂


Vegetable

Simple vegetable, choy sam, which is also quite simple to cook. They put some oyster sauce on top of the vegetable with some fried stuff. It is quite crunchy when I ate those fried little thing which I didn’t know what it is 🙂
