Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Melaka. One Meal. Where?:
Hello, I've been a silent reader and love your website. Only one place to eat in Melaka? arggh impossible! Toss up between Mako, the nyonya restaurant or the yummy chicken rice balls.

OMG!! There really is no way you can only do one meal. Unfortunately, I don't remember street names very well but there is an excellent restaurant in the courtyard of an abandoned temple downtown...
Also....satay celup! It's an absolute MUST try

My vote would be for:
1. Chicken rice balls
I initially thought this would be pretty mediocre, but after consuming about five of those yummy orbs, I rapidly revised my opinion. The sauce that they douse the chicken is definitely more-ish as well. I think there are a couple of variations, namely rice and yam balls.
2. Coconut House (opposite the Nyonya Guesthouse)
I know this is going to sound a little strange (Pizza? In Melaka?)but the stuff that this place churns out beats the pants off the produce of any KL pizza joint.
Definitely try the tom yum pizza (the paste tastes more authentic than some actual tom yum soups I've had) and the four seasons pizza as well.
The only thing is, Coconut House has a branch in KL as well, so you might want to sample its delights there for reasons of conserving time and stomach space =)
However the KL branch lacks that whimsical, old-school ambience that can only be found in Coconut House Melaka.
I've heard good things about numerous Nyonya restaurants as well, with only one (well, two) caveat(s): they can be pricey and you can never be sure of the authenticity of the food. No idea which specific ones to try though.
And unfortunately, I've never had the satay celup, but it does sound absolutely delish. Based on blogger KY's description, I'm definitely hitting up that joint in my next foray to Melaka.
Happy eating and have a pleasant drive! =)
