A vegan in Melaka

We attempted to go to¬†the¬†Night Market on¬†Jonker Street but was¬†choc-a-bloc with people, so¬†we gave up on that, but not on¬†the idea of finding a good market away from the heavy tourist wave. So we talked with a few locals and cycled to the suburbs to find a great market thrumming with locals and fresh vegan treats, and we also found a good small night market ¬†with the best¬†popiahs in the world ūüôā

Malaysia is one of the easiest places in South East Asia to find vegan and vegetarian food,¬†and¬† Melaka wasn’t an exception. You have great street food, ¬†eateries and restaurants,¬†among the places I tried, I do recommend the¬†Soon Wong Vegetarian Restaurant,¬†¬†the¬†Mori Vegetarian Tea House,¬†the indian restaurant¬†Selvam¬†Restrain, and the¬†Veggie Planet¬†

Once in Melaka if you want to try something different and delicious don’t miss:

  • Lei Cha, a traditional hakka rice dish,
  • Roti canai,
  • mock meat,
  • fresh spring¬†rolls (popiahs),
  • Barley drink,
  • one of this great¬†sweets, kuih,¬†ondeh-ondeh, putu piring (steamed rice flour cake with gula melaka filling), Putu Bambu (rice flour¬†and shredded coconut with a filling of gula melaka), Apam Balik¬†(pancakes filled¬†with sweetcorn and peanuts),

To¬†come to the point,¬†we did a lot of really good eating, which always makes us happy. Malaysia and Melaka is full of foodie surprises…
