Most of the tourist to Melaka would surely go to Jonker Street to experience to the old Melaka, its’ invaluable heritage, history and also local goods and food. But located just right next to Jonker Street is Medan Selera Tengkera which mostly only serve the locals.

Located at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock opposite the Pay Fong Chinese school, this place used to be stalls under a big tree and even know the tree is still maintained but the food court is now much clean and tidy with roof over it’s top.

The food here are mainly local and simple stuff. The hot drinks here goes from RM1.10 up and they are pretty decent.

Tau Kua is sort of a local thing, I had never had this in KL before. Its tofu, fried one all cut up and serve with pineapples and cucumber at the bottom and chili paste on top. The smallest is RM2.00 onwards. The tofu is soft and kind of nice with the chili paste, yummy.

I was walking around the food court trying to decide what to eat… then I saw the roast meat stalls looks good, so I order the char siew and siew yok rice. As the local styles goes, there’s varieties on topping to choose from too! Its like having chap fan but the based are roast meats and you have sauce like sweet or curry to go with it. So the standard one I ordered comes with some fried eggs and the sides I chose some kangkung vege plus tau kua (braised tofu). All these cost only RM4.50, that’s value for money. However there’s only 2 char siew rice that I missed so far in Melaka is one at Bunga Raya and the other at Melaka Baru :).

Not being greedy like me, Miharu opted for some simple economical fried meehoon and mee which the local style is to cover with chili paste plus dark sweet sauce. Something we don’t do in KL for sure… hehe…

I was told by Miharu the good thing is actually their Curry Rice stall but my upset stomach this morning doesn’t permits me to be too adventurous with curry, maybe the next time ;).

There are many other stalls here, stuff like fried lobak, roti canai, various noodles and others too.
