Baba Low's, Malacca

486 Tranquerah Road
Malaysia 75200
Tel: 60 6 283 1762's insider take:

In-the-know Malaccans flock to this casual Peranakan eatery two miles west of the old town and under the tree in the backyard of Victor Low's 80-year-old colonial-style house. Working with family recipes, the sixth-generation Peranakan chef rustles up authentic, incredibly affordable Sino-Malay classics such as laksa a creamy noodle soup with curry, coconut milk, and fish balls; and popiah, wheat-flour wraps stuffed with shredded bamboo shoots, cucumber, carrots, and chopped shrimp, slathered with caramel-flavored gula Melaka palm sugar. Don't be put off by the rustic setting: Ingredients are fresh and high-quality, while preparation and cooking are fastidious.

Open Saturdays through Wednesdays 7:30 am to 4 pm.
