Some Peranakan Food

Peranakan food were synonymous with Melaka. At the hotel we were staying, they had a restaurant called Seri Nyonya preparing just that. And for the first day, we had both lunch and dinner there. At my mother-in-law request no less.

We had the usual asam pedas and cencaluk, a local pickle-like condiment to be taken with rice made from shrimps. A local delicacy.

The food was fine, although being a hotel, it was on the pricey side. The ambience however was something else. The attention to detail at the outlet was commendable, from mugs to the flooring.

The front entrance

For lunch, we had a set menu of steamboat. We ordered a la carte for dinner. As usual, we overdid the ordering and was left with plenty to finishing in the end.

I was sure there were plenty of nearby restaurants who also did Peranakan food. But being located inside the hospital clearly made it more convenient. We didn't really feel like venturing out after the long afternoon and the possible rain outside.
