Just when we thought the café culture was coming to a pause, Malacca decides to spill the beans with the opening of The Daily Fix.

Built from driftwood, old tires and a host of other sustainably sourced materials, this colourful little café dishes up excellent burgers, pasta, barbecued meats and Malay dishes too.
