First night in Malacca, I walked around the Jonker street - and I found this cafe nearby. So I stopped for a dinner. Ordered for kungpaw chicken rice (cos Im not really into curry laksa), it was good. I love the ambience, wasnt that noisy. I could see other visitor taking pics for the food

I'm equally satisfied with my second visit, almost two years since my first one. I ordered the Calanthe (nyonya) laksa again, this time with extra vegetables. The soup is a perfect composition of flavour and santan, and boasts fresh ingredients. My previous visit was for lunch, this time for dinner - where the atmosphere was even more chill and ideal...

We had a chicken sandwich and french toast with tropical fruit smoothie and hot coffee with condensed milk. The food arrived before the drinks. The food was tasty but nothing particularly special. The chicken was a bit dry. We payed 46 ringgit in total. The seats outside on the varanda give a nice touch to the place.
