After our breakfast at 486 Baba Low, we went Nyonya kuih shopping at Baba Charlie. Baba Charlie is located at a small lane directly opposite the road where Baba Low is located (across Jalan Tengkera). So it’s wise to stop at Baba Low and Baba Charlie all at one go when you’re in Jalan Tengkera.

in Melaka

I went to Melaka at the end of September this year with my family. Our main aim is to eat, eat and eat. It was a fulfilling journey both in our tummies and spirit. We went on a Monday therefore tourist were few and there’s no need to queue for anything!

Our first stop for breakfast is at 486 Baba Low, a place that serve authentic Nyonya food. It took us quite some time to find the place as the GPS coordinate I obtained from Bangsar Babe blog couldn’t pin point the exact location. Eventually we found out the stall is located along Jalan Siantan Sek 2. The stall is actually located behind a large house (the house is facing the main road Jalan Tengkera).

Menu @ 486 Baba Low, Melaka
We ordered everything from the menu except nasi lemak.
