Baba and Nyonya cuisine is what defines the Melaka people. Locals and tourists love to come to the historical city and find themselves a good Peranakan restaurant. Restaurant Atlantic 1 is one of the good selections out there. It offers delicious and authentic Nyonya delicacies using traditional recipes. To match with its delectable food, its interior is also decorated with rustic décor. The eatery try to mix together different flavours and ingredients – spicy, tangy and salty, in order to craft wonderful and authentic Peranakan dishes.
The Special Pineapple Rice is the go-to dish for patrons who prefer a simple meal. This one is not like the regular Pineapple Rice. It consists of aromatic rice that is fried together with Corn, Ngoh Hiang, Raisins, Pineapples, and Pork Floss. To make your dining experience even more special, the rice is actually served in a pineapple. This one is highly recommended by the place itself.
However, you can always have a more common meal where you order rice and various side dishes of your choice. This restaurant is a little bit special because they provide Special Pandan Rice to go with the side dishes instead of the usual white rice. To complement the delicious and unique Pandan Rice, you can order Ikan Chilli Garam. This dish is exquisitely tasty with the green chilli paste drizzled all over the fresh and tender fish. Not a fan of fish? Chicken Rendang is ready for you. This one is one of the must-try dish with the visible grated coconut coating the chicken, flavourful gravy, and tender chicken meat.
So, instead of going to the usual fast food joints for dinner when you are in Melaka, why not try and experience yourself the authentic Peranakan delicacies at Restaurant Atlantic 1. Plus, they even claim their food as 100% Halal!
