First & foremost, this restaurant will required at least two weeks in advance for reservation on weekends and/or public holiday. Other days, it's good if you give the, a call before going there to avoid disappointment. Strategically located in the heart of Jonker street community & they have introduced open kitchen concpet at the entrance before many high end eateries adopting it! We have a table of ten and was greeted by their fifth generation, Tan jr. Signature dishes were suggested and it takes a while before the food is served. Once the first dish arrived, the rest are pretty prompt. We had the braised oyster noodle as a start, taste pretty unique but you must add in the black vinegar to brings up the flavour. Braised TeoChew duck with tofu, Braised bitter gourd with pork ribs, steamed fish TeoChew style, steamed TeoChew dumpling, Deep fried meat dumpling & stirred fried dragon beard vege are in our order list. Reasonable portion and taste good. Finally is the classic house dessert, yam paste with Ginko nuts and pumpkin, absulautely delicious ...highly recommend. The senior Tan once said " if any of you didn't eat at Teo Soon Loong Chan, you've not been to Melaka! "

Visited Melaka with friends and they brought us to this small hidden gem. We ate:
Back noodles with baby oysters
Claypot chicken in wine source
Hey-chor (deep fried meat and prawn balls)
Clams in chilli
Steam promfet
2 green vegetables
And finally the best or-ngee I have eaten - teochew style - one single slice of pumpkin and light grey yam paste. Its not oily and not too sweet. Super!
We need to try the roast piglet on our next visit.

Its a small and cosy restaurant with just 8 tables - reminds me of the small and quaint equivalent restaurants we have come across in Europe.

Its now run by the third gen family - young man who took over from his dad (who took over from his) The grand dad is now fully retired. The dad is still the main chef. The son looks a bit like Romeo Tan (the mediacorp channel 8 artist - in my opinion, but my kids would disagree with me ...LOL).

Booked a couple of weeks before the meal. We are early for our booking but the staff is ok with it. Have Oyster Noodles, Roast Suckling Pig, Steam Fish, Stir Fried Vegetables and Or Nee (Yam Paste) for dessert. Small outlet. Quick service. Great food. Dislike the hidden charges such as peanut and wet tissues (Dad has a issue with this).

I would definitely walk pass it if I didn't read the reviews. The cooks in front of the shop front were busy and so didnt attend to me but I ask them nicely and one of them proceed to take my reservation.
Came dinner and we were led inside a small restaurant. The young boss was friendly and not pushy. The stuff were friendly.
Food wise were nice. We ordered the oyster noodle, steam fish, prawn and meat rolls, braised duck and yam paste. We enjoyed the meal and found this is the most satisfying meal during our stay here.
Ambience wise may not be appealing but the foods is the star here.

Our yearly visit. But only thing this time missing was Uncle.
We had Roast Suckling Pig. Oyster noodles. Soft shell crab and a garlic fried vegetables. Or née. Superb meal. The young man now fronting the shop is also a gem to order from.
Worth the visit for sure!
