Our last stop before leaving Melaka is at this famous putu piring stall at Jalan Tengkera. I wouldn’t miss it for nothing after reading all the rave reviews about this putu piring. It’s a long time coming but not as long as Nadeje’s mille crepe. Hehe What’s a putu piring? It’s a steamed rice flour cake with gula melaka filling in the shape of a plate (piring). The putu piring is usually placed on a banana leaf with lightly salted young grated coconut between them.

As soon as the aunty saw my mom and me coming towards them, she fired up the steamer to reheat the putu piring. There were no queue or other customer – one of the pro of visiting Melaka on a working day.

Nadeje is a cake shop in Melaka famous for its mille crepe. I’ve heard about Nadeje many years back from Jason when Nadeje is just starting out. Can’t believe I’ve taken over 7 years to try this cake!!! What’s a mille crepe? It’s a French cake made from many layers of crepe. The word mille means thousand which suggest the cake has many crepe layers.

Don’t ask me to pronounce Nadeje because I’m not very sure how. Haha
