You, if you’re looking for the best asam pedas in Melaka
Noooo! =(   

Among the many, MANY must-try foods of Melaka, asam pedas remains (for us, at least) the one most sought after, yet the most elusive of all. We are really quite the cerewet when it comes to asam pedas (we minorly griped about this in this post), and the spicy and sour balance has to be just right.

If you’re just as cerewet as us, then we highly recommend that you make your way to Hajjah Mona. Usually we’d have our blogging notebook by our side, ready to take notes upon every chew or sip. But one taste of the asam pedas here, and we completely forgot about everything else until the last drop of the kuah.

Kepala Ikan Jenahak

The dishes arrive piping hot, and you’ll be sweating from the hot and spiciness of the kuah (as well as the humid air)! The fish used are really fresh too, and the fish head we had was so sweet!

Ikan Pari

Although this place is immensely popular among locals and tourists alike, the prices here are quite reasonable. Our total bill was RM32.80, and that was inclusive of the two above dishes, rice with veges and salted egg, omelettes, and a whole lot of drinks! It was unfortunate that one of the servers’ uncalled-for bitchiness dampened our first impression of the place, but what do you expect from a humble little stall right?
