2nd time to visit Kocik Kitchen~ Their cendol still able to satisfied me. Their nyoya food is slightly above average for me… But it still worth to try instead of Q up for their competitor Nxxxy Kitchen… 👍

I grew up eating Nyonya food cooked by great-grandma, grandma, grand-aunties ... ladies who would spend a full day preparing one "simple" meal. U get the picture ... So I am very picky when it comes to Nyonya food. Since I have not been able to find nice ones in Klang Valley in recent years, I decided to try Malacca.... More

The only thing that made up for the very average, mild tasting (Peranakan cuisine is anything but mild) food was the pleasant and polite service. Do not eat here if it's your first Peranakan meal ever.

We were turned down by the supposedly famous Nyonya restaurant since it was a little after lunch hour. Thankfully we saw this humble-looking place; and a few tables were occupied. No greetings at the entrance, but we quickly got seated by a young waiter. No recommendations either; so we picked the dishes that can be eaten by us both and... More

We arrived on 15 Oct 2014 for lunch & it wasn't opened. We only found out later after we had our lunch elsewhere that it is closed every Wednesday. Kocik (means Youngest Aunt, or the father's youngest sister in peranakan terms) has a set lunch menu which unfortunately, we did not try. We went there for the chendol which was... More

In Melaka, there are too many peranakan food restaurant, some are over rated, some are under standard. After much consideration, we decided to pay Kocik Kitchen a visit to try our luck after a climb to St Paul's Hill. Set in a old peranakan shop house, with decoration of old photos from the past and decoration, the mood is definitely... More

Had lunch there on a Friday afternoon. Chap chye was not simmered long enough, so the taste was bland. The nonya kuehs they display outside tasted somewhat decent and looked attractive. My favorite was the chendol, super fragrant and thick gula melaka on the ice - I went back the next day for the chendol again!

In matriarchal peranakan families, the female folks rule the kitchen. So Kocik as peranakan children would call the youngest aunty is an apt name for this nonya restaurant. Yet, a peranakan restaurant which doesn't serve pork cannot be too authentic. No babi ponteh? And the ngoh hiang with dry chicken meat instead of lardy minced pork? My kocik would certainly... More

I walked by this restaurant many times. I had no idea if the food was good but i managed to convince my friends to try. The service was fast, seating was ample and food was homely. We were really pleased and satisfied. A group of 8 of us ate. We spent RM180. We tried quite a number of dishes. We... More
