The Nyonya Heritage

Location of the day:

Family Heritage Cafe
No. 658-F, Jalan Intan,
Taman Bukit Melaka,
Bukit Beruang,
75450 Melaka.

Tel.: 06-2327116

The café is opened every day,
except on Wednesday, from 12.00pm to 3.00pm, and 5.30pm to 10.00pm.
And they also provide catering services.

#1 Ayam Pongteh (Nyonya Chicken and Potato Stew)
It is a famous Nyonya dish, generally a chicken stew cooked with fermented soybean paste, potatoes and shiitake mushrooms. An aromatic dish from Nyonya's kitchen, it is served with plenty of delectable broth and delivers the taste of sweet-savory owing to the main ingredients of fermented soybean paste and palm sugar.

#2 A must-try--- Authentic Nyonya Cendol, with added Gula Melaka

#3 Cincaluk Omelette
It is also known as telur dadar cincaluk--- Aromatic, with just a tint of the saltiness and sweet taste from the fermented baby shrimps and eggs.

#4 Sambal Okra (Sambal Lady's Fingers)
Out of all of the famous Nyonya food, I love this the most, thanks to its delicious good taste. The addition of dried shrimp adds depth to the taste structure of this simple but scrumptious dish.

It's time to try out some other Nyonya Dessert! :D

Let's try out the Nyonya Pulut!
It's some blue stained Glutinous Rice Cakes come from a flower named Bunga Telang,
wrapped with banana leaves and eaten with kaya.

And another famous dessert: Kuih Ketayap! :D
The Gula Melaka (Palm sugar) indeed makes every dessert tastes very much better!


Hahas! I love this-- It looks like the ice-cream which costed me only 10cent when I was in primary school! But this one I'm holding is Kuih Dodol.

It also comes in pyramid shapes, packed nicely
with 4 flavours--- Coconut, Durian, Pandan and Original.

Last but not least,
my all-time favourite: Pineapple Tarts!
This is the first time I've ever seen such an abundance of tarts,
imagine how much is everything here.

Nyonya Pineapple Tarts from ChristinaEe :D
Love 'em all!

It was indeed a great dining experience at the Family Heritage Café and I will definitely be going back there to try out some of their other dishes. Reasonably-priced; and you are definitely getting your money worth back.
