its still not bad, just more expensive than most other chicken rice shops/stalls in melaka. if u can, walk along jln gajah berang... about 20-30mins walk from jonker...

got hawker center, and food shops... chicken rice, taiwan beef noodles, nasi lemak, dim sum, czs char, hay mee, laksa... quite a lot of food to try.

google golden circle. this is one of my fav hawker centers. only opens at night. many variety of hawker food. sometimes will have xmm beer promoter too.
Besides Golden Circle, there are several hawker places open at night. Xin Tian Di, near Nancy's Kitchen, Newton Food Court at Bandar Hilir, and a long stretch of coffeeshops on Jln/Lor Kota Laksamana which runs parallel to Jonker Street on the reclaimed land. All of them serve the usual fare- Penang laksa, satay, grilled fish, bak kut teh etc.

ya these places serve very nice food too. there are many such hawker centers all over melaka.

i think for newton, it may be better to govia taxi or grab.

Many told me that the chicken rice ball is overrated and not that nice anymore.
Chicken Rice ball - Yes over-rated, time waster. Not better than any good chicken rice stall. Just order one ball to share & sample so confirm it yourself.

Hi, does anyone have any good AirBnB/apartments to recommend?

I'm planning another trip to Malacca with family, we prefer condo style type of accommodation rather than booking 2 hotel rooms.

I stayed at Mahkota Hotel/Apartment last year. The location was good (just need to cross the big road) and ample parking space. We felt safe. Just that the unit I booked faced the main road, so the road noise continued late into the night at 2 or 3 am. So hard to sleep. Other than that the unit was comfortable.

Now thinking if I should try booking another unit at Mahkota (different view) or find somewhere else to stay that is still within walking distance from the main attractions. I can't seem to be able to find other condos in that area. Most of them are nearer to the Portuguese village side, which means we have to take transport out everytime to get to Jonker or the shopping centres.
Why don stay hotel? Cheap and plenty near Jonker.

i only ate at one before, the asam fishhead was quite good. but it was gone when i wanted to eat there last year. it's near the river jetty.

anyway, along the river jetty area has plenty of muslim restorans. you may wanna give it a shot.

Not seafood, but good old basic asam pedas:

Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas
Address: 6, Jalan Laksamana 2, Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia
Phone: +60 12-601 3676

My favorite haunt whenever I'm in Melaka. It's situated just opposite Casa del Rio Residences (next to the hotel).

I'm planning to go Melaka in May.
Any recommended coach to take for this route Singapore > Melaka > Singapore?
Heard many say that Luxury is good.
can try 707

melaka is 3.5 hours journey only, no need to spend so much on luxury coach.

Do those buses from Larkin have space for luggage (just like coaches from Sin)?
