Melaka Trip Day 3! 

An exceptionally long time ago we remembered having dinner here once in a wooden stall on stilts, and we had the best ever Curry Debal (or Devilled Curry to some). The rows of wooden huts have since been replaced by a row of brick-and-mortar stalls. Fast forward a decade later and we remember frequenting Stall Number 8 named De Costa run by Roy (Ah Loy) that served decent Curry Debal. This stall underwent a change of ownership and our beloved Curry Debal was no more.

A quick search on the internet touted Restoran De Lisbon as having possibly the best version of Curry Debal. Well, this is an opportunity not to be missed. A Grab car ride later and we found ourselves at the Portuguese Square, and we quickly found ourselves seated and perusing their menu.

With little haste we ordered the:

  • Curry Debal (of course!) for RM25.00
  • Sambal Petal Sotong (Squid in Sambal with Stinky Beans) for RM30.00
  • Fried Brinjals for RM10.00
  • Several helpings of plain white Rice for RM2.00
  • A large bottle of Tiger Beer for RM19.00
  • Orange Juice and Mineral Water for RM5.00
  • (We later added) Fried Rice to go, for the Millennial for RM6.00

We admit that this proper Portuguese banquet cannot be considered everyday food for the everyday man by any stretch of the imagination. However, seeing as it was our last day in Melaka, we felt that it was only right that we splurge a little, and paid RM97.00 (approximately USD23/EUR20) for this handsome feast. 

And what do we think of their Curry Debal? The Wall Street Journal lists their version of the delicious devilled spicy vinegary goodness as the top three, and we couldn't agree more.

Thus ends our series of videos on Melaka, we hope to come back soon to continue our adventure in Melaka!
