'Putu' is one of my favourites as it is bursting with sweet flavour! This traditional food can be found in many places across Malaysia. It is made of rice flour, sweet grated coconut, and a mix of several spices. There are several kinds of Putu; Putu Bambu is cooked inside of and served with bamboo, and Putu Piring is served with plates.
Sold for a mere RM 1 per piece, I would probably get a whole bunch. Putu Piring Jalan Tengkera offers yummy Putu, with a unique sweetness you won’t forget. Cheap and tasty!
Capitol Satay Celup
Each table gets a fresh pot of sauce which will then be mixed with gula Melaka, spices and peanut. The concoction results in an aromatic spicy peanut sauce which you will use to dip everything in. A fire is placed under the table to ensure your sauce stays hot enough to cook the food.
I personally recommend the bread cubes as they go amazingly well with the sauce! Dip them in for about 3-5 seconds until they are soft and coated in the sauce. Heavenly.. Grab whatever you want from the fridge - the food are placed on stick, priced at RM 1+ each while those on plates are priced differently.
Mutton Herb Soup at Heng Hong Tin Tee Restaurant
Heng Hong Tin Tee Restaurant is one of the most popular Hainanese Restaurant in Melaka. While they sell a lot of Hainanese menus like Hainanese Pork Chop, Hainanese Lotus Leaf Chicken, etc. the one menu you should try here is the Hainanese Mutton Herb Soup. With a generous amount of herbs in their soup and tender muttons, the dish offers a strong aroma.
