There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Melaka and a variety of cuisine to try. No one should leave without trying Peranakan food like ayam pongteh or ayam buah keluak, or Malay dishes like asam pedas andiIkan bakar. Jonker Walk is a good place to try local cuisine and drinks, though some of the best places to eat are located inside the more upmarket hotels, like The Majestic Malacca.Shopping
