Lao San Cafe: Where to eat in Malacca, Malaysia
bring an empty stomach, the bad Traveler as well as his bad good friends Asta as well as Ces hurried back to Jonker street to discover a location to have dinner at. regrettably for us, the restaurants along Jonker were all closed for the day. It was already past 9 o’clock as well as we have just completed the Malacca River Cruise, for which we spent much time waiting in line. While street food abounded the popular street that night, we were trying to find a location where we might sit down as well as have appropriate dinner. We had walked the length of the street twice to no avail; we made a decision to look elsewhere.
We turned onto the adjacent street, parallel to the river, as well as discovered a bright area — a cafe, which was still available to serve us. While we really hoped they were serving rice meals, we were truly not in the setting to select at the time. We went into the cafe, chosen a table with the view of the river, as well as requested the menu.
There were no rice meals. Droga.
The location was Lao San Cafe, an unassuming homey cafe on the edge of Malacca Chinatown by the river. The menu handed to us provided beverages as well as homemade cendol, which were the bestsellers. We asked the waiter whether they served something solid.

“Dumplings,” he said. “We have dumplings.”
Ces, Asta, as well as I all agreed that it was great sufficient for us. We were truly starved at that point as well as we would eat anything that isn’t streaming or melting.
“But,” the waiter stated however then hesitated. Ele sorriu.
“But what sir?” Eu perguntei.
“I’m terrified it’s pork,” he answered.
“Don’t worry, we like pork!” stated Ces. “Oh, exactly how we like pork!”
The waiter explained that he believed we were Muslims so he believed we would not want it.
While waiting, each of us bought a drink. I had a glass of Barley drink while my two female companions had Ice Lemon Tea as well as Ice White Coffee.

The Barley drink was really lemon barley drink as the lemon overpowered the “barley” taste, which I appreciated. It was citrusy sour as well as had a tangy after taste. one more thing I liked about it was that its sweetness was just right. The White Coffee tasted like the ones we get from Starbucks or other a lot more prominent cafe, except that it’s a great deal cheaper. Of the three drinks, I liked the Ice Lemon Tea the most, which regrettably was not my drink. The tea as well as lemon flavors were both extremely strong, making this drink a a lot more potent as well as a lot more tasty version of the dull ones we get from other restaurants. I truly liked it.
The dumplings had a extremely short life span on our plates. less than five minutes after they were served, they were gone. We were truly that hungry. There was nothing special about the dumplings however they tasted truly good, anyway. If anything, the serving was rather smaller than what we expected.
While completing our food, a few boats passed by as well as we enjoyed the tourists take pleasure in their cruise. We kept on speaking about exactly how great it would be if we succeeded in cleaning up Pasig River as well as have cafes on its banks, enabling people to enjoy the waves roll downstream as well as bond with nature in the middle of the city. I believe it can still be possible however not anytime soon. We have a great deal of work to do to clean up Pasig.
Anyway, while Lao San cafe was not able to quench our growing hunger, the view as well as the atmosphere of the location were genuinely satisfying. It’s not since the food was not pleasant. On the contrary, they tasted good! We were just very hungry. The dumplings were sufficient to revive our energy to discover one more restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, it truly seemed like the heritage town, with the exception of Jonker street, was already asleep. We ended up gorging on some street food on stick in Jonker.
