“Excellent burgers!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The burger I tried was great (Aloha burger), and would actually consider making a trip from Singapore to Melaka for a holiday to get more of the same. The ginger beer is an acquired taste.
The place is a find, and the decor is really cool! An arty hangout!

Remember to go early though, as the place closes by late afternoon.

“Good burgers + ambience = great!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

I don't quite understand the rule of no photos inside the restaurant, but the food was good, the ambience was good, and the overall experience was great! We arrived early at 11am plus on a Monday and no crowds. We didn't plan to eat there as it was western, we wanted to try local stuffs, but it was good that we eventually ate there!!

Very cliche, I know, but there's no other word for it!

I came in on a Monday, lunch-time and there was no crowd. I walked right in even though there is a sign saying to wait for staff to seat you. No point since there are hardly any customers. I was greeted by a nice guy covered in cool tattoos and piercings and seated in the middle courtyard among the jungle-like plants and the well.

My order consisted of a Lamb Aloha Cheeseburger and a ginger beer. I wasn't expecting that burst of flavor from the patty! And the sauce was some type of mustard mixture that complemented the burger perfectly. The ginger beer is homemade, the taste also went with the burger very well, not to mention, it is very refreshing as well!

There is free wifi (just ask the staff for the password, and the decor and ambiance were really cool and cozy. Just remember, no photography of the interiors allowed! Well, it is really better experienced in person anyways. So if you are ever in Malacca, please don't forget to drop by! It's really close to the Baba Nyonya Heritage House too, so you can have lunch after visiting the museum.
