The entrance is locked up and you need to be let in, or let out; in other words not really welcoming.
then comes the warnings; no photos, not even selfies. you start to think this is a place that doesn't want you in.

you walk into a place that looks like it is run by some backpackers hired by the owners. don't expect good service, but then expect some really good burgers!!

ordered a couple of burgers, and they were really good! as you eat, you start to appreciate the surroundings (and the staff). how the mismatch of décor and the total lack of cohesion comes together, letting you relax and just enjoy the time. plus the strong aroma of the burning incense

Went in to escape the noontime Melaka heat - you have to ring the buzzer to be let in. No AC, but a cool (in both senses of the word) courtyard. This is really a classy burger joint and the burger lunch we had was delicious. We also tried their lemongrass drink and a bottle of homemade pineapple beer - both very refreshing. Our French-accented server was very friendly and the pseudo-ethnic rustic artwork decorating the walls gives a fun and quirky ambience. Maybe the best thing is their policy of no photos and no selfies - a real relief in a touristy town like Melaka. Recommended.
