Sunday Morning Late Breakfast

No pictures but always fun across the street at the Chinese breakfast place. Half boiled eggs, toast bread, some kopi and chicken rice. All of this costs about $3.00 maybe less. That’s enough to hold me through a day of walking and seeing more museums here today.

Food here is a great deal. I had roti canai last night for $1.00 or so. Plenty filling and freshly cooked.

Once you get to the beer though the cost goes up. One beer often costs the same as the food if not more. I usually look for the Chinese cafes or restaurants for beer. Most all have cold tiger beer and others. You can also just buy it at 7/11 stores here. They are all over the place. Again if no 7/11, find a Chinese or Asian shop like a small market. They will most likely sell the beer.

You can also just get the food to go. All places ask me if I am staying to eat or take away.

So getting by for cheap is easy but so is finding nicer places. My favorites are The Stolen Cup coffee shop where they have a great cuppa and some really nice sandwiches on croissant if you want or Sids Pub. Nice food and cold beer too. Down the river walk are smaller bars lining both sides where you can sit out and eat and drink as you want.

Melaka is a fun city to be in. Lots of food choices as I found up in KL Just wanted to leave this quick note on the blog to encourage you to visit. Lots to see and do.
