Written by Updated ago

As known by many, popiah originates from China. In other words, popiah can be described as a fresh spring roll made up of egg roll wrappers with fillings such as shredded jicama, julienned beancurd, lettuce and the combination of sweet and chili sauce. In Melaka, however, pork lard is one of the core ingredients in serving a popiah, and the addition of pork lard has gained the interest of many as it is simply irresistible! Thus, here you go with the best popiah in Melaka listing that is unfortunately mostly non pork friendly, with the exception of the Nyonya version which is prepared sans lard.

    One of the pioneers and an immobile food on wheels in town, selling popiah. Bunga Raya Popiah has always been one of the top local favourites in town when it comes to sourcing for light bites such as the Pork Lard Popiah here. An adequate amount of juicy fillings are wrapped inside the popiah, accompanied by its usual chili and sweet sauce, in addition to having pork lard and fried dry chili paste for a more succulent taste!

    Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Poh Piah Lwee is run by an elderly couple. As the restaurant name implies, the trademark of their dish here is none other than Poh Piah. Similar to the above, however the popiah here is prepared with a mild application of lard and it tastes just about right. If their popiah alone is not enough for your liking, do pair it with the creamy Nyonya laksa here as they go extremely well together.

    Tips

    Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

    Things to expect

    A little shop under one of the heritage buildings in town.

With pork lard as one of its main ingredients and the fragrant smell of onion oil, this toothsome popiah is definitely a must-try!

    Kedai Kopi & Makanan Oriental Cafe signifies a resemblance of a typical coffee shop back in the olden days with a dining area that spreads all the way to the back as it is a longhouse.

As compared to the previous one, the lard application is rather similar, it blends pretty well with the popiah fillings and creates a juicy popiah as an end result.

    Do come earlier in the afternoon as it gets busy during lunch hours.

    Things to expect

    An eatery in a refurbished longhouse with delicious food and affordable prices.
