Teo Soon Loong Chan Teochew Seafood Restaurant, Melaka

Ever since Chubby Hubby blogged about his great experience, we've been curious about this Teochew restaurant in Melaka, located in a small street near the touristy Jonker Walk area. From the outside, Teo Soon Loong Chan looks like a rather dingy and nondescript hole-in-the-wall eating place.


The entrance is almost entirely blocked by the outdoor kitchen, leaving only a tiny gap to squeeze through into the eating area.


The inside is tiny too, with space enough for only about 7 or so tables, but clean and welcoming, with cheery red tablecloths. Very Chinese!


We had a Teochew-style steamed pomfret, fried vegetables, fried pork and Teochew yam paste - Or Ni, all for about RM80 (SGD32). The cooking was pretty good, but not really earth shaking, we've had better Teochew food at Chin Lee. Still, this was worth the visit just to watch Ethan wolf down half the pomfret all by himself. That's a lot of fish! I wonder where all that food goes to?

  1. This is one of the place I must visit when I visit Malacca :)
    Great choice :D

    1. yes, certainly a good experience. Try Amy's heritage nyonya cuisine too but be prepared for a long wait since she cooks table by table.
