When you're in Melaka you will see Nyonya or Peranakan restaurants everywhere. Nyonya or Peranakan cuisine is a mash up of Malay and Chinese food. The Baba Nyonya are the descendants of Chinese migrants who intermarried with the local Malay in areas of Malaysia including Melaka and Penang.

We searched for a restaurant in Melaka that was reasonably priced as well as authentic and found Unicorn Cafe. Unicorn Cafe was started by owner Evonne Yeo as a way for her to share her heritage food to others and to keep the love of Nyonya food alive. All dishes at Unicorn Cafe are priced under RM10.50/$2.50USD and you can get a lunch set for around RM10.50 which includes a main, rice and vegetables of the day. We think that is great value!

We sample the pai tee a Peranakan starter often referred to as 'top hats' because of their shape, seh bak- a pork dish, chicken debal curry and a fried fish with sambal. The food is excellent and both the Chinese and Malay influences are really prominent in the food.

After lunch we head to a spot which loads of subscribers have recommended to us- Baba Charlie Nyonya Kuih. Baba Charlie is famous for it's range of Nyonya Kuih. It's located a bit out of Melaka town but is well worth the trip to sample their famous snacks.
