HomeTaste, Malacca

Scarcely a year old, HomeTaste has cultivated a reliable reputation for Nyonya fare in the city where this cooking is most cherished. The Nyonya laksa is worthwhile, lightly aromatic, while the chicken includes interesting recipes like wings glazed in gula Melaka, as well as soothing staples like pongteh and regular specials such as kaffir lime chicken, deliciously zesty.

With Malacca being a coastal state, seafood shines, naturally: Ikan cili garam is irresistibly spicy and savoury, as its name suggests, while pineapple prawns in coconut milk is a can't-fail classic. Cincalok-laced omelettes, kangkung belacan and fried rice round out the usual suspects of a Nyonya restaurant, each respectably rendered, while a hearty bowl of cendol makes for the most fitting conclusion.
