MyFest Melaka 2015: Top 5 Street Food

If there is one thing that I like about Melaka apart from it being a very touristy and romantic place, is the street food. I have to say that the streetfood in Melaka is not only delicious but creatively irresistible too. Here’s sharing with you my top 5 favourite irresistible street food that can easily be found in the night market of Jonker Walk.

1. Baby Drink

Spot this stall if you are walking around in the night market. This particular stall sells colourful fruit juices in baby bottles. For RM6 per bottle, you’ll get to relive your childhood moments, drinking fruit juices from milk bottle, through the rubber nipples, no less.

Well, yea…you don’t have to ask. I suck on this. And my husband did too. It’s a lovely experience, I assure you. Taste wise, the drinks are mediocre. But like I said… This is really a fun thing to do as an adult. A bonus: You get to keep the milk bottle as a souvenir.

2. Colourful, cute pau

Grab some of these. You don’t have to go to overrated Satay Celup restaurants in Melaka. Some stalls in Jonker Street are selling these too and I assure you they tastes as good as the restaurants around Melaka town.

4. Fried Skewered Quail Eggs

Bored of having quail eggs the same way you usually do? Say bye bye to boiled quail eggs and say hello to fried quail eggs.

Cracked onto a special hot pan, quail eggs are topped with sliced chicken sausages and fried to perfection.

It was then dressed with creamy mayonnaise and skewered. It made quite a lovely snack and it was positively addictive to me.

5. Takoyaki

Another not to be missed street food in Jonker Street is the famous Japanese street/ festival food, the Takoyaki. It was first popularized in Osaka, Japan and is here to stay in Malaysia.

Takoyaki is a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special takoyaki pan. It is typically filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion.These Takoyaki are brushed with takoyaki sauce, similar to Worcestershire sauce, and mayonnaise. The takoyaki is then sprinkled with green laver and shavings of dried bonito. These can be a tad messy to be eaten on the go as you walk, but they are terribly irresistible and I couldn’t stop at just one box.

So, there you go. My 5 favourite street food that can be found in the Jonker Walk Nightmarket. If you ever visit Melaka, do keep a lookout for these and give them a try. I can assure you that they are worth your time, and money too. 🙂
