I arrived at the place with very high expectations. After all, Melaka is one of the three key places to get Peranakan stuffs, the other two being Singapore and Penang. It was a small place and there was quite a crowd there. I walked in...More

Delicious Nyonya Kuehs, but super long queue. So sometimes, it gets frustrating. The Nyonya kuehs were simple traditional kuehs. Simplicity is great.
