I have never known how famous this place was until my Melaccan customers spoke of this place and the “gunung” of coconuts sold each day. My friend also frequents this place whenever she visits Melacca.
After we wrapped up our work, the sun had set and it was actually near dinner time already. Yet, the place was packed to the brim. With both locals and tourists.
She loves the “lekor” here too, which is a form of savoury fish cake like delicacy, made famous by local Malays. RM 1 for 3 slices.
The Lekors looked rather different from the ones I see in Klang Valley or Kota Bahru. They were much lighter and fluffier than the darker colour and denser ones I see before. Which was great. It was less filling and less smelly also! haha.
Finally, the star had arrived. This was the Coconut Shake special (comes with a scoop of ice cream on the top). Hey, we have our own root beer/milk shake combos too you guys! Nice and thinly shaved ice with thinly shredded coconut…each sip, you can taste the grittyness of the coconut bits and ice yet not too coarse till you got to chew. RM 2.20 per cup.
Signing off with a bidding goodbye view of the scenic gunung of coconuts! the trishaws were added as a decor to create the Melacca Historical city feel.
