From our hotel in KL, we had a private guide and driver who took us around Melaka. The highlight of our trip was the visit to Kocik Kitchen Nyonya restaurant in Jonker street. This old-fashioned homely kitchen had virtually transported us back to the 1920s....More

This place is like a hidden gem in the streets of Melaka. First time I went here I only had the cendol, and I have to say that was the best cendol I have ever had! One bowl wasn't enough. Went back a second time...More
