The grand finale to our 7 meals in 12 hours eating marathon in Melaka, the historical city of Malaysia.

MEAL 5: Nadeje Millie Crepe
One word: HEAVEN. There are only two Nadeje Cake Shops and they are both situated in Melaka. Nadeje is well known for its Japan thousand-layer cake called the Millie Crepe Cake. It’s basically a cake that is made up of thin crepe and vanilla cream layers stacked up on top of each other. It is the most amazing thing. When you run your fork down the cake you can feel each layer softly break, and it just melts in your mouth, so gently. It literally feels like heaven in your mouth.
When we went, there was a line running out the door for that cake. I think we had to wait for about 20 minutes, but once again, it was worth it.
Prices: Millie Crepe Cake Slice RM 6.50 = approx US $2.10
Location: G-23 & 25 Jalan PM4, Plaza Mahkota, 75000 Melaka
MEAL 6: Portuguese food for dinner
Hidden in the Portuguese settlement area of Melaka is this little gem of a restaurant called San Pedro serving authentic ‘homemade’ Portuguese food. The food was extremely delicious and was cooked by this one Portuguese woman. The unfortunate thing about this restaurant is that not very many people know about it. We were in fact the only ones having dinner there at the time, which I find quite strange because the food is, no joke, amazing. Uncle Eddie has been going back there for many years mainly for the food, however they are really struggling to survive. I really don’t want this place to close down due to lack of business so if you’re ever out in Melaka go there! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
We had Chicken Curry, Baked Fish, Fried Squid, Seasoned Eggplant and the most memorable dish, Honey Chicken.
Prices: All up with drinks dinner for 4 was only RM 86.00 = approx US $28.00
Location: 4 Aranjo Road, Portuguese Settlement, Ujong Pasir, 75050 Melaka; Tel: 06-2842170
No, our day doesn’t end at dinner…
MEAL 7: Satay Celup for supper
If you’ve ever had steamboat or hot pot, replace the soup with hot boiling peanut sauce and you have Satay Celup! Basically it’s raw meat and vegetables on skewers dipped/cooked in a pot of peanut sauce placed over a flame. What you do is you pick whatever you like from this fridge…
Prices: Charges per skewer
Bloated and satisfied, the Melaka Eating Marathon has come to an end. Although I think I may have gained a few kilos, I take pride that I managed to eat ALL of that in one day.
Thanks for reading. Eat well and take care!
