Top Dishes:

Nyonya Nasi Lemak (MYR 2.00 / USD 0.50)

During your food travels you will surely come across one of the famous breakfast in Melaka called Nasi Lemak. A rice dish perfectly wrapped in banana leaf into a triangle shape. 

The rice is steamed to perfection in coconut milk, ginger and pandan leaves which gives its fragrant aroma.

What sets this apart from other nasi lemak is the additional ingredient, a condiment called sambal belacan. 

By adding this condiment made of dried shrimp paste,chillies and calamansi lime is the reason known as Nyonya Nasi Lemak. 

You might think it’s too spicy for your taste due to the chillies but worry not, as the way to eat is by mixing with the rich creamy coconut rice.

Get the perfect bite by adding either toasted peanuts or crispy anchovy sambal included in the pack.

Rempah Udang (MYR 1.00 / USD 0.30)

This traditional nyonya dessert or ‘kueh’ typically eaten in addition to the main dish is a grilled glutinous rice roll filled with dried shrimp chili paste wrapped in banana leaf and is a must-try malacca breakfast.

One is never enough after you tasted the savory umami flavor. I urge you to take more than 1 as they run out quite fast. 

Tai Bak (MYR 2.50 / USD 0.60)

Is it really too early for something sweet in the morning? 

Not when the spot specializes in it and a rare find in Melaka. 

Tai Bak is a noteworthy nyonya sweet dessert made of either rice, tapioca or wheat flour shaped into short noodles served with light sugar syrup and shaved ice. The noodles have a chewy texture that is enjoyable to eat.

2. Limbongan Hailam Kopitiam

What is a kopitiam you ask?

It’s a traditional Chinese Malaysian coffee shop that serves a diverse type of food linked to Hainanese culture. 

Historically a gathering place for older generations to have their “coffee talks” equivalent to today’s cafes, the name itself is a combination of Malay – “Kopi” means coffee and Hokkien Chinese – “Tiam” means shop. 

In case you’re looking for best kopitiam melaka, you will definitely find one of the best Chinese breakfast in Melaka here.

Top picks dishes :

Chicken Rice Ball

Originating from Hainanese culture, this is an alternative way of eating chicken rice. 

A famous dish consists of  rice cooked in aromatics such as garlic,pandan and shallots paired with juicy chicken either steamed or roasted with a side of homemade spicy tangy chili sauce. 

Here in Kopitiam Melaka, the rice is shaped into little golf-sized balls. A signature you can’t miss at Limbongan Hailam Kopitiam as they do it so well that locals keep coming back.

Butter Kaya Toast(MYR 1.80 / USD 0.40)

If the chicken rice balls are too heavy for you and you’re looking for something light, do opt for the butter kaya toast. This is a staple Melaka kopitiam breakfast offering that sounds so simple yet dotted by patrons. 

Two pieces of white soft bread with the crust trimmed off toasted until golden brown for optimum crunch, spread generous amounts of kaya jam on both sides and finally place thin slices of cold salted butter on one side to complete such a heavenly combo. 

Kaya jam is a decadent spread made from creamy coconut milk, eggs and palm sugar. Another version also contains pandan leaf flavor which gives its green color. 

Hainanese Black Coffee (Kopi O)  (MYR 1.40 / USD 0.30 for hot) 

To complete your melaka breakfast kopitiam experience, try a small cup of Hainanese Black Coffee to wash down the toast

It is smooth and has fruity notes with mild sweetness (you can ask for no sugar). They also have an option with creamer.   

If you are hooked on kaya jam and want to try making the butter kaya toast, get this Mariza Pandan Coconut Spread to make at home.

3. One Dollar Shop Pandan Malim

Are you looking for a budget breakfast in Melaka?

Then head over to a restaurant in Pandan Malim called One Dollar Shop Pandan Malim. Just like the name, it has a selection of dishes priced at MYR1.00, mostly fried noodles, rice and toasted bread. 

Aside from this, they also offer other chinese food at slightly higher price yet still super affordable all under MYR 10.00. 

Top picks dishes:

Economy Fried Bee Hoon (MYR 1.00 / USD 0.50) 

Among the budget eats selection or “Economy”, their stir fried bee hoon is simple yet so tasty. 

Basically its rice vermicelli noodles fried in a large wok on high heat with shallots, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce or oyster sauce. You can add many choices of side dishes such as fried egg, sausage, fish cake or anchovy spicy sambal for another MYR 1.00.

Wat Tan Hor (MYR 5.00 / USD 1.20 for small serving, MYR 10.00/ USD 2.30 for big serving)

Aside from the economy noodles and rice, you can try a classic chinese flat rice noodle in a rich egg gravy here. 

Again the noodles are cooked in a wok to get that “Wok Hei” taste. A unique smoky aroma created from the high wok heat transferred onto the food. 

It’s such an important cooking technique in Chinese culture that’s also entertaining to watch. Added into the silky egg gravy is fishcakes, chicken meat, prawn and baby bok choy. 

Seasoned well with soy sauce, white pepper and oyster sauce which will have you slurping to the last drop! Hearty but not heavy. One of the best local breakfasts in Melaka.

Shallot Oil Mee (MYR 5.00 / USD 1.20 )

Another fulfilling dish that pays homage to the Shanghai Scallion Oil Noodles, here at One Dollar Shop Pandan Malim they replaced the scallion with shallots. 

Using the Wok Hei technique again, the shallots are fried until crispy and the oil is then cooked down with dark and light soy sauce. Mix in the noodles and toss until coat well. 

It’s then served with deep fried fish cake or tauke. It’s a simple and unpretentious dish full of flavor that will keep you satisfied until the next meal.

4. Siang Ge Mee Hoon Kueh

I have covered Chinese cuisines that originated from Hainan and Shanghai. Let’s discover Fujian or refer as Hokkien since it’s the highest dialect spoken by Malaysian Chinese. 

Small business owners such as this spot are always so warm to share more about their origins, from there you can understand the pride in their offerings.

Top picks dishes:

Mee Hoon Kueh Dry or Soup (MYR 5.00/ USD 1.20  for regular serving, MYR 6.00/ USD 1.40  for large serving)

The signature at Siang Gee Mee is their Mee Hoon Kueh which directly translates to “wheat snack”. A true comfort food for the many as the chewy noodle is the star of the dish. 

Easy to make with just flour, egg and water kneaded into a dough then flatten and torn into irregular shapes before dropping into boiling water. Here they served it either dry, a combination of minced pork, fried anchovies, shallots and chili or soup, which is anchovies-based soup.

Whichever is your preference, both are equally delectable. Their chili sambal gives your taste buds a kick but it’s a must try so mix in little by little if you’re not used to the heat.

Ginger Wine Mee Sua (MYR 5.00/ USD 1.20  for regular serving, MYR 8.00/ USD 1.80  for large serving)

If the mornings are cooler or rainy, then this dish is perfect for breakfast in Malacca. Originated from Taiwan, where sesame is replaced with ginger as the soup’s base. 

Pairing ginger, goji berries, black fungus, succulent chicken drumstick, wheat vermicelli noodles with the light but rich flavor of Shaoxing Wine warms the body instantly. 

It has been coined as the Chinese chicken soup for the soul and one of my favorite Chinese dishes. You can search Chinese breakfast near me if you’re in Melaka and this place will definitely pop up in recommendations.

The vibe of this establishment is very homely and community driven. 

As it’s in the courtyard of the owner’s house, it is decorated with nyonya antiques like kebaya, portraits and signage. They just celebrated their 11th year of serving the community. 

Top picks dishes:

Nyonya Laksa (MYR 7.00/ USD 1.60)

Throughout Melaka you will come across different types of laksa. We can’t think of anything better than a laksa for breakfast in Melaka!

What is essentially a laksa? A spicy noodle dish prepared with either rich coconut milk or sour tamarind paste. The former is the base for nyonya laksa. 

The blend of spice and aromatics are turmeric, galangal, belacan and lemongrass. Hence, making the broth very fragrant and delightful at first whiff.

Here, they make it extra creamy to balance out with the homemade spicy belacan sambal not yet mixed into the soup for your adjustment. To fill you up further, a generous topping of sliced cucumber, fishcakes, hard-boiled egg garnish with “daun kesum”. 

Certainly Melaka’s best breakfast spot since their star dish keeps patrons coming back for the last 11 years!

Mee Siam (MYR 4.50/ USD 1.00)

This dish is influenced by Thai cuisine as its name Siam, the old name for Thailand

A simple stir-fried rice vermicelli noodle that is sweet, spicy and tart. This is because of the blend of tamarind, belacan (shrimp paste) and soybean paste in its gravy. 

Here they topped it with a handful of sliced  cucumber, belacan spicy sambal and wedge of lime should you want more tartness. I enjoyed mixing it all together.

Nyonya Chicken Rendang (MYR 7.00/ USD 1.60) 

You need to make room for their nyonya chicken rendang. Succulent braised dish in coconut milk and spices that have been slow cooked to perfection. 

Originated from Indonesia and have been adapted in Malaysia into various versions depending on geography. Here you have the option to eat with the nasi lemak or nasi impit (pressed rice). 

Go for the latter if you want a taste but not feel overly stuffed. 

Often the heat of the Melaka’s weather can leave you very dehydrated but you can keep hydrated and fresh with cold water stored in Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottle-Vacuum Insulated throughout the day.

6.Mee Goreng Hassan Tengkera

Are You Looking For Halal Budget Breakfast In Melaka?

Look no further than at this 20 years establishment, Mee Goreng Hassan Tengkera. Similar to the concept of the One Dollar Shop Pandan Malim , they serve fried wok noodles at a budget price. 

Perfect for muslim foodie because it one of the best halal breakfast in Melaka. This is a warung type of establishment with ample seating but due to being made viral by social media expect some waiting time.

Top pick:

Mee Goreng (MYR 2.50/ USD 0.60) 

Mee Goreng Hassan Tengkera’s fried noodle is quintessential Malay style cooking. The difference with Chinese style are these base ingredients ; chili paste, bottled chili sauce, oyster sauce, garlic and shallots. 

All blended into a paste and cooked until brown before tossing in chicken cube or fish ball. Malay food is usually spicier, unlike Chinese or nyonya where you have the option to adjust when sambals are served on the side.

That spicy and sweet taste beautifully coats each noodle. You get the option to eat with fried egg on the side and more homemade sambal! Just in case the noodle spice level is not enough. 

They even now sell the sambal in bottles which you can take home.

Location : 390, Jalan Tengkera, Kampung Lapan Tengkera, 75200 Melaka.

7.Sayyid Antique & Cafe

This spot is truly Melaka’s unique eatery. A combination of an antique shop and a cafe rolled into one place. Run by friendly mom and pop that have managed to create an intimate and cozy atmosphere. 

Seats are limited but service is excellent. I recommend going during the off season where you can enjoy chatting with the owners and admire the antiques. 

Another top halal breakfast in Melaka.

Lontong and Lodeh (MYR 4.50/ USD 1.00)

The dish originated from Indonesia and has since adapted into Malay cuisine. A combination of nasi impit or pressed rice into small cubes and sayur lodeh, a coconut based soup with strong taste of dried shrimp.

It is cooked together with lots of vegetables such as carrots, cabbage, long beans and turnips. If that is not enough, tempe, firm tofu, beancurd skin and glass noodles are typically included inside the soup. 

Here it’s creamy and flavorful due to the dried shrimp taste. Serve with sweet and spicy anchovy sambal on top, which I recommend to eat with since the soup itself is not spicy.

Soto Ayam (MYR 6.00/ USD 1.40) 

Another dish adapted from Indonesia that has become a comfort food for many Malays. 

Similar to the lontong, nasi impit is the first element then the coconut soup is replaced with rich flavourful chicken soup, tangy sweet spicy soy sauce, hand torn chicken meat and begedil (fried mashed potato patty with minced meat). 

It’s beautifully assembled into a deep plate or bowl which is visually appetizing. You might want to go easy on the sweet spicy soy sauce because they use bird’s eye chili, which is not for the faint of heart.

This spot is equivalent to the Chinese kopitiam but serves malay breakfast cuisines. They serve staple dishes such as roti canai (grilled flatbread) in various fillings, lontong, nasi lemak, laksa and curry mee. 

The atmosphere is busy and bustling with patrons often spending only 30 minutes for a quick breakfast. There are lots of seats but due to its popularity, it’s always packed.  

The main reason is one unique item on the menu.

Roti Canai Merecik Normal or Cheese (MYR 4.50/ USD 1.00 for normal, MYR 6.00/ USD 1.40 for cheese)

I have not come across this version of roti canai for breakfast in Melaka!

A stuffed egg and heavily spiced shredded fried chicken rolled into the dough and grilled until crispy on all sides. It doesn’t end there, the burrito like roti then is drenched in thick creamy dhal gravy topped with its signature sweet spicy sambal. 

Is it an overload? Yes, but in a good way. 

In addition to this, you can even ask for the cheese version where melted cheese is added on the roti. Bite into layers of flaky prata straight into the chicken and egg, which is a complete meal on its own. 

Such great options if you need breakfast Melaka!

The sambal is cooked with palm sugar for 6 hours and served with other dishes as well. 

Teh Tarik ( MYR 2.00/ USD 0.50)

Another staple beverage that is best enjoyed hot with breakfast at Melaka. The name directly translates as pulled tea. Strongly brewed tea as base mixed with sweet creamy condensed milk. 

The signature froth at the top is created through pouring the liquid back and forth repeatedly between two cups from a height. It’s a skill brewers need to perfect as not to spill the tea. 

Ask for kurang manis (less sweet)  if you are watching your sugar intake. 

Location : Jalan Pandan, Kampung Lapan, 75250 Melaka.

Ham and Cheese in Bread Bowl set (MYR 10.20/ USD 2.30)

Perfectly sized soft wholewheat fluffy bread bowl stuffed with soft boiled egg, ham, cheese, tomato and lettuce. Wholesome and healthy breakfast option. If you order the set, it comes with Hainanese coffee. 

Jujube Black Sesame Toast Butter Kaya (MYR 3.90/ USD 0.90)

They also serve other more traditional breakfast in Melaka like various toast, buns and sandwiches. All wholemeal or multigrain which is a great source of fiber in the morning. 

I loved this version of butter kaya toast where they added black sesame paste. A delightful nutty and earthy flavor that cuts through the sweet kaya jam.

Not many Malay restaurants make it anymore so when I find a place that still does, I am overjoyed. I’ve even tried making them at home (failed due to not having the right cooking tool). 

Top picks dishes:

Roti Jala Ayam 

It’s a yellow lacy or net-like crepe that has been delicately rolled into easy consumption. The taste has a hint of turmeric  and salt. 

Served with creamy spicy potato chicken curry. A really humble dish that 1 roll is not enough, you will eat at least 4. Some people just dip the crepe onto the curry but I usually drench it to ensure maximum moisture in every bite. 

Here they make it really soft and light too.  

Mee Rebus Otai (MYR 5.00/ USD 1.20)

Another rare find is this noodle dish submerged in delectable sweet, meaty and tangy broth.Egg noodle paired with thick beef broth that has been braised with spices, aromatics and sweet potato. 

Commonly found in Johor but it’s a great Melaka breakfast place.   

You can try making the crepe at home but make sure you get this 3-hole plastic bottle to get that net like texture.

Melaka is known for its baba and nyonya heritage or Peranakans. Borned from the migrations of Chinese settlers during the British Colonial ruled assimilating with the local cultures through interracial marriage. 

A hybrid culture that makes Malaysia unique. One of their biggest impacts is cuisine of course! This is how kueh is born, a sweet and savory dessert. 

This humble breakfast place in Melaka, run at home purely for take-away is one of Melaka’s off the beaten path keeps. They only operate for breakfast only, so make sure you come early to get your selections of nyonya kueh as it runs out fast. 

There’s nothing more typical of a Melaka breakfast than having a variety of kueh at the breakfast table as well!

You will be spoiled with choices but here are the top picks must try (MYR 1.00 / USD 0.50):

Kueh Ang Koo 

Soft chewy tortoise shaped and designed kueh filled with mung bean paste. Not overly sweet and used all natural coloring such as pandan or beetroot juice. 

Pulut Inti 

Aromatic kueh wrapped in banana leaves. It’s made of sticky and moist glutinous rice at the bottom coupled with sweet grated coconut palm sugar filling on top. 

Kueh Dadar 

My all time favorite kueh. Pandan flavor crepe loaded with decadent grated coconut palm sugar filling. A lighter version of pulut inti since the rice was replaced with crepe.

Kueh Sago

Rose flavored dessert coated with shredded coconut. Made of flavored tiny tapioca pearls which give a chewy jelly-like texture but it’s not too sweet like the other kueh.

One of the most significant Peranakan dishes that is made really well here. A braised chicken and potato dish in fermented bean paste, shallots and palm sugar.

Assam Laksa (MYR 10.90/ USD 2.50)

Another version of laksa made from tangy tamarind paste instead of creamy coconut milk. 

The choice of protein is flaky mackerel cooked in chili, mint, lemongrass, onion and pineapple. It definitely has a strong fishy smell but is super addictive due to the spicy, sweet and sour taste that goes perfectly with the light soft rice noodles.

Particularly its modern café and restaurant establishments. This has provided even bigger variety to travelers and patrons looking for good breakfast in Melaka. 

The Baboon House is located inside a heritage house turned into a restaurant. You will be greeted with lush greenery as their open courtyard is filled with plants. 

Furniture made of wood, rattan and teak to complete the natural vibe particularly makes it Instagram worthy.    

Top picks dishes:

Pork Belly Burger (MYR 21.50/ USD 4.90)

A burger is an unconventional breakfast choice for sure but it doesn’t stop visitors from having it at Baboon House as their preferred dish. You will get thick juicy tender slices of chargrilled pork belly between two fluffy buns and melted cheese. 

A side of  potato wedges to complete the meal. The size is definitely a sharing portion.

Vietnamese Coffee (MYR 7.50/ USD 1.70 for cold)

One of their specialty drinks is Vietnamese coffee because it is strong and sweet just how it is supposed to be! I personally enjoyed it with ice.

If you only have room in your schedule for one Malacca breakfast café, The Daily Fix Cafe is a must try spot. 

Located inside a heritage house behind a gift shop. 

The overall atmosphere is very charming and there are two levels of seating. I must warn you, due to its popularity there is always a waiting list. My advice is go during the off peak season and early. 

Top picks dishes:

Gula Melaka Pandan Pancake  (MYR 15.00/ USD 3.40)

Dessert for breakfast Melaka anyone? Yes please. 

Their top rave dish is this fluffy soft pandan flavor pancake served with gula Melaka jam. You have the option of adding vanilla ice-cream. 

I suggest you not to add it as it dilutes the taste of pandan and gula Melaka. By using these ingredients they pay homage to Nyonya kueh taste. 

Black Sesame Matcha Latte (MYR 12.00/ USD 2.70 for hot)

If you’re tired of a normal latte, then this drink is an alternative to try. Definitely on the adventurous side as it’s not common in other cafes. 

It has a sweet, nutty sesame and umami taste that will tingle your taste buds. 

If you want to start making matcha at home, use this Whisk Set to alleviate your home barista skills.

Sin See Tai is hokkien which means ‘New Generation’. It is a quaint experimental café by the people behind The Daily Fix. 

Their offering is minimal but definitely delicious and unique. They specialize in pastries and desserts. 

Top picks dishes: 

Pistachio Rose Croissant (MYR 13.00/ USD 3.00)

Croissant in Melaka? Definitely yes when it’s not the typical butter croissant. Here they have a variety of croissants like almond, strawberry vanilla custard and caramelized walnut. 

The one I recommend is the pistachio rose croissant due to its sweet flaky buttery and nutty flavor of pastry goodness.

Signature Waffle and Popsicle (MYR 18.00/ USD 4.10) 

When I said experimental, they didn’t put any limitations! 

Glad to see such unique offerings, especially in Melaka. Who knows, it can catch up with the rest of Malaysia or globally. Crunchy fluffy hot waffles paired with homemade passion fruit flavor popsicles. 

It definitely raised eyebrows, but it works. The popsicle melts on to the waffle coating it delightfully.

It’s creamy due to the coconut milk and spicy from the sambal. Topped with soft boiled eggs and shredded cucumbers, crushed peanuts and anchovies. Not a miss but a hit!

You can’t leave Melaka without trying their dim sum offering. Presently, they’re one of the best Chinese breakfast in Melaka. 

What is Dim Sum? Originated from Cantonese cuisine, it is small-portion meals served with tea. 

They come in small bamboo baskets because it’s usually steamed. Some come in small metal plates if the dish were fried. 

Since there are a broad variety of dishes, you might get overwhelmed as to which to try. Sure they are small portions but reminder is always not to over order and waste. 

Here are my top picks:

A famous breakfast in Melaka spot located at the beginning of the busiest street in Melaka, Jonker Street.

Top picks dishes:

Nyonya Asam Laksa Kahwin Baba Laksa (MYR 10.50/ USD 2.40)

This interesting dish is a mix of both types of laksa, coconut milk and tamarind paste broth. 

I was skeptical but this is one of their top dishes and the portion is definitely sharing size. It tasted both creamy and tangy and with a spicy kick to it.

A great option if you want breakfast at Jonker Street.

Baba Durian Chendol (MYR 9.00/ USD 2.00)

Most famous traditional dessert in Melaka. Shaved iced topped with coconut milk, palm sugar syrup and actual creamy durian flesh.
