Two Saturdays ago, hubby, dear son and I joined a group of our Uni friends on a Durian Degustation trip to Sim Koa Yen, a large durian estate in Melaka. The durian feast was ok, but our highlight of the trip turned out to be dinner at a Teochew Restaurant in Melaka. If not our friends' recommendation, we wouldn't have know that there's such a gem hidden in Melaka, in the Jonker Street area.
Our friends had to make prior reservations, for this restaurant is strictly by reservations only. I think mainly due to the limited seating capacity, at most 5 or 6 tables, packed brim to brim, and of course food is good.
Basically, we just look at the seafood and veggies available and place order, cooking methods will be recommended by the chefs.
And finally Orh Nee (yam paste) dessert which was another signature dish. The yam paste was cooked perfectly, very creamy and smooth and not too sweet. And even better complemented with steamed pumpkin and ginko. A must-try dish here! They even sell convenient packs for this.
All in all, it was a nice dining experience here, good food with great company. Next time we visit Melaka, will definitely be back for a meal and try the other dishes.
