{Malacca} Nyonya Laksa @ BESS Kopitiam, Bukit Baru

December 13th, 2013 [Friday]

eberybuddy knows that the ultimate laksa for me is Sarawak Laksa, and my second favourite… is none other than Malacca Nyonya Laksa! one of the better one i had lately was from BESS Kopitiam.

oh since we’re on Nyonya talk, just thought i’d share my favourite Nyonya restaurant is Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine which located at Melaka Raya!

mami’s the one recommended it to me actually. BESS Kopitiam is mami’s regular brekkie place together with the aunties her aerobic buddies. i don’t follow her to aerobic, i’d rather sleep in and comfortably do my daily 7 minutes workout at home hehe. then mami will come home with tapao-ed brunch for me.

she tapao-ed this Nyonya laksa thrice last month which left quite an impression. told her i would like to check out the coffee house as the quality is consistent even if it’s tapao version, and it definitely worth an entry on AntzWorLd :D.

on one morning, due to unforeseen circumstances, i had to follow mami to aerobic. and in return, i got to have a real Nyonya Laksa as reward! :D. real as in, in a real bowl instead of stainless steel tapao utensil.

Nyonya Laksa | RM 5

vermicelli inundated in luscious thick and rich santan-y broth, topped with the usual ingredients – cockles, tofu puff, fish cake, bean curd skin, julienne of cucumber and halved hard-boiled egg.

the broth consistency was just right, not too diluted nor overly thick. and the cucumber strips gave a nice crunchy texture since everything else absorbed the broth and became soggy. yes, it’s by far the BESS Nyonya Laksa i have ever had in Malacca. i used to love 88’s but the quality deteriorates in recent years la :(.

om nom nom nom 😀

stir in the sambal provided for additional flavour and kick!

this BESS Kopitiam i patronised is located at Bukit Baru, near the food court. it has another branch at Melaka Raya too! and besides Nyonya Laksa, BESS Kopitiam offers mee goreng, mee siam, nasi lemak and some toasts! so probably you would wanna drop by for brekkie some day?

    Look delicious! The color, red enuf.
    I oso like Nyonya Laksa. The broth is very important. Some so dilute & lack of spice…disappointing to the max!

    Ahh…I love Nyonya Laksa. I had my first nyonya laksa at Nancy’s Kitchen. That’s how I started to love this curry noodles so much.

    Like curry mee, very lemak… I’d prefer our own Sarawak laksa anytime.

    I’ve eaten here too! 🙂

    I liked it but strangely, I don’t like Sarawak laksa or heavy santan based ones. I still prefer asam laksa from Penang!

    I have been to Malacca many times but I have yet to try their Nyonya laksa. I am going to seek this out on my next trip. Thanks for the recommendation. 🙂

    […] Laksa that i enjoyed in Malacca! it’s delectable albeit the broth wasn’t as thick as Bess’. i was quite surprised at the price, only slightly more expensive (less than a ringgit) than a […]
