This place is packed and instantly you will notice a queue of people in line ordering or taking away nasi lemak. Parking is almost impossible here and so I had to wait in the car while Miharu jumped down to buy.

We bought 2 packets, 1 with chicken and the other with sotong (yau yi). In the packet, you get the rice with a standard serving of cucumber, kangkung, peanuts and anchovies topped with Miharu’s selection of fried egg and fried chicken for one and sotong with fried egg again for another. Both packets cost RM 7.50.

The rice is not sticky and each rice its on its own, what is nice is the rice is not too overhelmed with santan, so you don’t get bloated after eating. The sambal is sort of watery but its good to go with the nasi lemak, now I known why its so popular plus affordable pricing too.

Along the main road of Jalan Bendehara lies a small and humble old coffeeshop known as Seu Lean Fung. Most motorist would not notice it when passing but a visit there shows that it is quite popular and Miharu told me this place have been around since she was young.

There are two stalls selling noodles right up front, one is yong tau foo and another have hee kiaw mee, wantan mee and curry too. I went for the hee kiaw noodles while Miharu took the wantan noodles.

The hee kiaw noodles is not bad, I took the dry out, not too oily, the chili is a little spicy but after a few mouth full, start to taste pretty good. The wantan noodles is somewhat the south style, no black sauce, just some chili which you can get in quite a few places in Melaka too and its not too bad. Best part is for 2 bowls is RM5.60, which means per bowl is just RM2.80.

The coffeeshop itself is known for their kaya, which they made on their own to sell and it cost RM2.70 each. I had a bottle a month back and its very good and can last quite long keeping it in the fridge. I ordered a toast bun with kaya and butter just to try costing RM1. The bun is first toasted on a small stove with charcoal under and top with butter and kaya when done.

The only comment is that the tea is too light for my liking, maybe I should had ordered coffee instead since Melaka is famous for it. Overall, its a nice authentic coffeeshop to eat that still maintains affordable prices.

Thong Shui House offer a range of Chinese desserts (thong shui) starting at RM3.30 up as well as various fusion drinks and ice blended desserts as well. If you are hungry or mouth itchy, snacks and various food dishes is offered too.

I went for the red bean with dumplings at RM 3.50 while Miharu choosed the lotus seed and black glutinous at RM3.30. We later settled for a glass of black cooler at RM3.00 to finish off our visit.

The red bean is soupy with a few big dumpling (tang yuen) and some longan as well. Its quite good, well, I like tang yuen, so anything with tang yuen is good to me :P.

Miharu really loved the black glutinous with lotus seeds in them. The santan flavour is rich, kind of a little sweet but quite ok, its thong shui after all.

Black cooler is funny, top black part looks like pepsi or coke to us and the bottom are ice tea. Mixed them up, its a pretty interesting drink but most important its freshing.

If you are looking for a nice place to lepak, chit chat for the night with some decent desserts (slightly pricey to me but what is not nowadays?), check this place out.
