9. Cencaluk 

Last but not least, the most significant Melaka food is Cencaluk! Cencaluk is a pure Melaka food made of fermented small shrimps. It is the darling of locals and usually used as condiments together with chillis.

Cencaluk usually sold in glass bottles and they are pink in colour (due to the colour of the small shrimps). One of the popular food with cencaluk is the cencaluk omelette. My grandmother loves cencaluk as condiment but it is high in cholesterol though.

Cencaluk is available in more dry food shops in Melaka as well as in Jonker Street. The best cencaluk comes from Melaka so you definitely need to buy one of them.

  1. Chicken rice balls well deserved on top of the food chart .Every on ought to have a taste of it

  2. These are not the good melaka belachans. The true blue ones are a large pink ball. These dark pieces are more Penang style.

  3. Ah Boy Asam Fish near Pasar Borong very famous. However, the owner is not honest. When their business in the shop is pack, they tried to put small plate meal into big plate and sold as big plate price. Please be aware when you visit next time.

    Ah Boy Asam Fish 近 Pasar Borong, 商家不诚实,欺骗食客,客流量多时把小碟菜剩去大碟,以高价出售。请帮忙提点食客,尤其是外乡人,万一把马六甲名给丢了就不好。
