Malacca 06 & 07 Part 1

|
It took me a while to put everything together on Malacca (my hometown) and now it's finally done! Honestly, I don't know most of the restaurants' name, so I'll have refer them based on their locations. Anyways, here are some of my favorite restaurants in Malacca, Part 1.

Gan: What you like to eat is mostly determined by what you eat when you were growing up. So for us, Melaka is a source of most of our culinary idiosyncracies, our likes and dislikes, and our passion for appreciating good food in general. It only makes sense for us to review some of the food we've grown up with.


Kampung Pantai Bak Kee Soup

One of Gan's favorite dishes -- Bak Kee Soup (Pork in soy sauce broth served with rice on the side). I've never eaten this dish before but according to Gan, it's good!
Gan: Another typical Hokkien dish. You coat the pork slices with tapioca flour and boil it in the soup. The tapioca coating turns into a geletine like texture. That's where I think the dish is most interesting, in the texture. Of course, the flavors with how the season the pork and the flour as well as the soup and the aromatic yam rice rounds this dish up.

that gives us an idea.. we're heading back home to melaka for cny. we should maybe give ourselves an assignment to discover the root of our passion for food.. and how melaka's food had shaped that.
we'll report back then, with more updated photos.

we have your flickr contact from the last time we spoke about kebaya and batik.
