We had a short trip to Malacca town on the back from Tangkak sending my SIL. We planned to stop by at one of the famous Asam Pedas in Melacca ... The problem is that all these shops opened at 5.00pm.. It's about 3.00pm when we reached Melacca Town. We skipped our lunch just to taste this Asam Pedas.... went to three shops....
Asam Pedas Claypot
Asam Pedas Pokok Besar (Just Opposite Asam Pedas Claypot)
Hajjah Mona Assam Pedas
In the end, we end up having our dinner at Asam Pedas Claypot. It's worth waiting.. we met up enche Wan & Salmie there.. the more the merrier... We ordered different dish of Assam Pedas..
Asam Pedas Ikan Pari (for me and Salmi)
Asam Pedas Daging Tetel (enche hubby)
Aaam Pedas Ikan Tenggiri (enche Wan)
Asam Pedas Ian Jenahak ( Wan's mother)
for little kiddos (Isha & Papil) harusla order ayam goreng.
So we got to taste variety of Asam Pedas served in a claypot with white rice, salted egg, cucumber and sambal belacan. I like the taste of the sambal belacan. For the fish Asam Pedas the taste of the gravy were more or less the same...except for daging tetel.. it has more spicy & herbs taste in it....generally the asam pedas has a balance taste of spicy & sour. Recommended to come.
I have not tried Asam Pedas Pokok Besar but I have tried Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas ... pun boleh tahan jugak... another place to try Asam Pedas in Melacca is at Jalan Ujung Pasir... there's one stall right opposite the new IPK Banda Hilir selling all sorts of traditional kuih as well.
While waiting to get the Asam Pedas restaurant opened, we went sight seeing with my two little kiddos around Bandar Melaka.
We had our prayers at our favourite mosque... Masjid Selat Melaka. This mosque was build on a reclaimation of sea... it's over looking the sea.. very breezy, windy and peaceful....
Then, selesai solat we all gi jenjalan ke Mahkota Parade
Kalau jalan dengan my two kiddos ni memang we all banyak mengalah... sekejap-sekejap nak minum , taste tak agak-agak .. nak minum kat Starbuck je...ni mama yang lebih...
Tapi yang ni mama tak suruh.... jom layan gelagat diorang kat kedai jam ni...
Papil : Isha tenok ni... tantik tak?
Bergaya dengan jam masing-masing.....
