Everyone kept talking about Tong Sheng as the place to go to get seafood. We were told that it was closed on Mondays, which is the day we wanted to go. So alas, we had to find an alternative. The folks at the Holiday Inn told us about Aunty Fatso. So we went.
En route there, we saw that Tong Sheng was indeed open, but there was already a queue. Thus we stuck with our original plan.
Set back a little bit in a semi-industrial area, it’s right by the sea, separated by a big fence. It’s an outdoor area, very old fashioned in style.
One of the things that you have to try in Melaka is the Prawn Cheese Bee Hoon. They use the big prawns with the huge legs. The gravy is a little cheesy. It’s not stringy, like an Italian dish, but the cheese taste is in the gravy. It’s really like a Crab Bee Hoon Soup from Mellben, but along with milk there is cheese in the soup.
Here is Aunty Fatso herself. She comes to your table when you sit down, goes over what you would like to eat, makes recommendations, etc. What a great lady!Go for it! You don’t always have to go for the Trip Advisor bests!
