First up, be prepared to stand for at least 15 minutes to half an hour because the queue can be quite long during peak hours. But everything was worth the wait! The food ingredients taste so good with their kuah kacang gravy soup. LOVE IT!

The beauty of Malacca is its food and street scenes. As you wait for your turn to be seated, cars bicycles and the ocassional trucks and buses passes the queue.

The choice of food on skewers is rather limited and unappetising. The servers' faces are all black. WORST OF ALL, I realised that they recycle the gravy which is used for cooking. Granted that this kind of... More

I went there on a family weekend trip. We saw a long queue outside the shop when we drove past by the shop and thought we should try it out! It was a pretty long queue and the shop is just a small, old shop run by a Chinese family. We queue up for about an hour before we could... More
