As the F&B scene in southern Malacca state evolves, several increasingly ambitious eateries are taking root. In June 2015, Plat Kitchen launched in the Taman Melaka Raya commercial enclave, founded by Roland Tey and Danny Kho, who envision a venue that encompasses food and culture.
“We want Plat Kitchen to be a place where people can gather not just for great meals but also for events that touch on everything from fashion and photography to books, music and interior design,” says Roland. He and Danny plan to organise talks, exhibitions and workshops involving creative professionals from KL and elsewhere; they also hope to open a space for homestay accommodation above Plat Kitchen to complement their café.
Plat Kitchen’s menu reflects a masterful medley of cross-border influences. Danny’s shakshouka is a robust combination of creamy baked eggs with chickpeas, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes & a juicy, herb-laced sausage. The café also promises a ravishing stew of white wine-infused chicken with couscous and rocket leaves, as well as pasta that’s tantalisingly topped with pandan chicken (hand-wrapped in screwpine leaves) and tossed in sambal hebi (shrimp chilli paste that relies on Roland’s grandmother’s aromatic lemongrass recipe).
This spotlight on Plat Kitchen is an excerpt of a feature on six of Malacca's soulful new cafes; read the full feature in the August 2015 issue of Going Places, Malaysia Airlines' in-flight magazine.
