The Best Asam Pedas in Melaka


Recently we hear about which State produced the best Asam Pedas…Melaka or Johor? Some say Asam Pedas is originated from Muar then came to Melaka.

So…The best asam pedas in Melaka is……….up to you the readers and food lovers. It’s very subjective. My opinion also will be protested by others because we all have different taste. Like Malays always said ‘Hair is the same black in color, but our heart can’t be the same’. Apart from commonly known Asam Pedas restaurant like:

1) Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas
Jalan Laksamana 2, Taman Kota Laksamana, 75200 Melaka ?

2) Kari Kepala Ikan Hajah Rahmah Km 9 Bukit Katil

3) Asam Pedas Claypot Kota Laksamana, 86 Jalan Laksamana 5.

4) Selera Kampung Asam Pedas,No. G2, Jalan PM3, Mahkota Square, Bandar Hilir

5) Pak Man Asam Pedas / Seribu Kuih (Perhentian Kuih Kampung), Ujong Pasir.

We also must explore many others small restaurant in Melaka from Jasin to Alor Gajah that normally sell asam pedas. Who knows you might get the best asam pedas ever. Usually smaller restaurant cook the asam pedas in smaller scale and as a result the gravy can have very strong taste while retaining the ingredient freshness. Make it golden snapper, red snapper, mackerel stingray or tetel, Melaka Asam Pedas will make your forehead sweating…
