Man Ting Shiang @ Melaka

5 10 2010

When I arrived at Melaka a few weeks back, the first thing I ate was their local Dim Sum. Apparently, we were told that the most famous one is called Man Ting Shiang which is located along Jalan Ong Kim Wee. I had high expectations of this place since the place was already so crowded early in the morning. However, I ended up not being too impressed with the quality of the food there. Simply put, it doesn’t taste as good as the one I had at Foh San in Ipoh or Ful Lai at Kuchai Lama. Price wise, I had no idea how much the meal was as my brother-in-law paid for it.

Anyway, here are some of the food pictures taken.

And what did I say about the morning crowd?

Overall, the Dim Sum were only average at best. I guess once you had tasted something better, it is hard to settled for an average meal without feeling a little disappointed.

Restoran ASV @ Melaka

When my brother-in-law brought my family to eat Mee Rebus in Melaka, I didn’t know that a plate of Mee Rebus costs only RM 2. Yes, that is right. At Restoran ASV (which is actually a make shift Mamak stall underneath a big tree), the food is ridiculously cheap. In fact, the inexpensive meals are probably the main reason for the huge afternoon crowd when I was there.

The big question is what can we expect from a RM 2 meal? Well, Restoran ASV certainly did not skimp on the portion. The yellow thick noodles were complimented with thick curry sauce.

Cucumber and chili slices were also served together with fried shallots on the top.

Taste wise, I find the gravy too overpowering with strong curry taste. It was only average given that I can’t taste anything else other than the curry flavour. However, at RM 2 one shouldn’t be complaining too much. At the very least it was a decent meal.

The ABC (Shaved Ice) costs only …. RM 1!

Again, do not expect the best tasting dessert but it was oklah.

Scenes from Melaka

I was at Melaka for a short break during the Hari Raya holidays earlier this month. Jonker Street was especially crowded during this festive holiday season. I also managed to visit the Mini Malaysia which features cultural dance shows as well as replica of old Kampung houses. Here are some of the pictures taken.
