Essense Kitchen Holiday Inn Melaka

Having a weekend break with my family can be a fabulous thing to do and ventured to Melaka. Yes we had it short, a one night stay at Holiday Inn Melaka. It took us about 2 hours leisure drive from Petaling Jaya and it was truly comfort and smooth journey. We checked in at about 1.30pm and decided to take a rest before any venturing. We were hungry too and decided to lunch at Es.sence Kitchen, a buffet restaurant located on the 2nd floor of the hotel. Well I got to confessed that their hi-tea looked really good, going at RM40.80++.

Once we had our luggage up to the room and a short rest we drove ourself out from our 10th floor deluxe room to Essense Kitchen on the 2nd floor. It was such a pleasant scene. the place was truly lifely with people dishing at the buffet counters. I just adored this restaurant as diners can have a fabulous seats overlooking directly across the Straits of Malacca. I got to confessed the it is one of the best sited hotels – soothing, with calming gentle breezes along with picturesque sights of the setting sun.

BBQ and Satay Affair

I was given s surprised with their homemadee satay which came with the choice of beef or chicken, yes it was just fabulous. It was truly a typical satay which anyone would love to have, to taste and even to take home, . . . . I would. I guessed it was the beautiful craftmanshio being put together by the chef in creating such a beautiful suiting. You can bite into the texture of the satay and also the coarse of fresh herbs that lingered around the juicy meat. It was really special only can be taste here in Melaka at Holiday Inn, just perfctly unique. BBQ was on the offering too where marinated chicken, beef. prawns and sausages waiting to be picked up at the counter for charcoal blazing..

“Cucur Udang” Prawn Fritter

I had an eye on the prawn fritter “cucur udang” as it was cooked to light golden brown. It was truly a mouth washing fritter as it was soft, moist, tender and had a crisp coating, goese very well with the accompanied chilli sauce. Nect to it was the fish paste fritter lekur” that was done with a touch of crispiness and was truly a mouth teaser.
