When we reach Melaka, all things that we does is eating. Haha, this is an eating trip anyway. After the satay house, we went to Jonker Street at the centre of the town for Assam Laksa and Cendol. Wow!! Alfred love Cendol. I gave some for him to taste and he chasing for it.
Description of Assam Laksa
Assam laksa is a sour fish-based soup. The main ingredients for assam laksa include shredded fish, normally kembung fish or mackerel, and finely sliced vegetables including cucumber, onions, red chillis, pineapple, lettuce, common mint, and pink bunga kantan (ginger buds). Assam laksa is normally served with either thick rice noodles and topped off with "petis udang" or "hae ko", a thick sweet prawn/shrimp paste.
Description of Cendol
In Malaysia, Cendol is normally served in a small bowl full of shaved ice and rich coconut milk. It is sweetened with thick brown coloured syrup made from palm sugar (Gula Melaka). Apart from this serving combination, Cendol is also often served with glutinous rice, red beans and rich coconut milk. It is a perfect beverage, especially during hot days.
After an evening walk at Jonker Street, we went to Dim Sum Garden for dinner. Dim sum is the name for a Chinese cuisine which involves a wide range of light dishes served alongside Chinese Tea. Dishes come in small portions and may include meat, seafood, and vegetables, as well as desserts and fruit. The items are usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate.
We went back to Bernard house for a rest after the dinner. I gave Alfred a quick baths as the Jonker Street walks really make Alfred sweat a lot. We had a great chat with Bernard families. We left Bernard house around 1030pm. Alfred falls asleep when we are on the way for our supper. Darn!! My boy can just sleep whatever time or where ever we go. Good boy!! Our last stop for supper that is Lok Lok Food On Stick. It called “satay celup” in Melaka where they use spicy peanut sauce to cook. The food skewered on sticks. Lok-lok is a little bit like steamboat except that we don’t drink the soup. The peanut sauce almost the same like satay.We went back home with a bloated stomach. It an enjoyable day trips because our whole family loves to eat. Conclusion is Melaka are a best place for food.
