NEW The Ba­boon House

89 Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Malacca.

If you’re look­ing for gourmet burg­ers and ice cold beers, Ba­boon House is for you. This pet-friendly café sits in a care­fully re­fur­bished shop­house, with green­ery and unique decor ev­ery­where. Trav­ellers bent on authenticity will frown upon hav­ing burg­ers in a Unesco her­itage site but the rave reviews con­vinced us that it’s worth a try. A feast for the eyes as well as the stom­ach, The Ba­boon House is fes­tooned with art, trop­i­cal flow­ers and an­tiques, and houses a re­fresh­ingly lush and leafy in­ner court­yard. With all this in mind, it’s rather dis­ap­point­ing that pho­tog­ra­phy is not per­mit­ted. Mon–Thu, 10am–5pm; Fri–Sun, 10am–7pm. Closed Tues­days. $$

My Rock & Roll Blues Café 34 Jalan Me­laka Raya 23, Ta­man Me­laka Raya, Malacca (06 284 9652/ www.rock­n­rollme­laka.site11.com).

Those who love blues and burg­ers would do well to pop by this place. Chow down on good old steaks and chops (as well as a whole range of other Western dishes), all of which ar­rive in mas­sive por­tions. Owner Mark Ruf­fin plays in a blues and rock and roll band called Johnny Coma and the Bone­shak­ers, and they per­form oc­ca­sion­ally in the café.
