Best Pai Tee in Melaka

Written by Updated ago

Pai tee, or otherwise known as “Top Hats” is a crispy shell cup that is served with similar fillings of popiah, the sweet and freshly prepared mixture of julienned vegetables and garnished with coriander leaves. It is a common Peranakan finger food that literally fits a single mouthful and is best consumed right away. As great things usually come in small portion, the same can be applied to the best pai tee in Melaka, a dainty appetizer which is enjoyed as a substitute of “Popiah Party” nowadays.

    In seeking for one of the quintessential taste of Nyonya cuisines, Baba Low’s is well recognized for that. Laksa and mee siam are among some of the recommended staple food here. For light bites, despite its rather unappealing presentation, the pai tee here is a great appetizer to begin with. The fillings are plentiful and it gives a combination of sweetness from the sliced jicama and with a moderately spicy chilli sauce.

    Tips

    Closed on Fridays. Cash only.

    Things to expect

    Place your orders at the counter and get seated to be served.

    Cafe 1511

    Cafe 1511 was founded in 2000. It is a Western and Nyonya fusion restaurant, in addition to providing a home stay. Naming the rooms precisely highlights some of the featured Nyonya dishes here, and pai tee is definitely one of it as well. It may look a little bland from a first impression, due to its moderate filling, but this delicate appetizer is flavourful enough to satisfy anyone who is looking to try Nyonya food for the first time. To liven up the top hats, chili sauce is also given in a separate sauce plate.

    Tips

    FREE Wifi. Do call in first to enquire about the rooms availability here as there are only six private rooms!

    Dining and homestay under an ancient heritage house with neatly painted and beautiful carvings.
