I had been looking forward to this meal.. and i was rewarded well enough
otak otak mackerel paste with spice
nyonya popiah beats the vietnamese spring rolls any day

then shrimp in nyonya paste ( rather hot ) with petai which is a fragrant bean

a very tasty fruit drink to wash it down with. i was tempted to order wine but i did not wish to destroy the ambience of the food
the restaurant in itself is well designed and spacious. i really enjoyed my meal tonight. the additional reward was that the chef Bong, came over to say hello, he remembered a cuban doctor who had dined here before and he wanted to convince himself it was the same guy.. i remembered him as well, a delightful end to a good meal. i will here again before leaving melaka.
