Char Siew at Medan Makan Boon Leong

By Luc Gougeon
Medan Makan Boon Leong is a food court known for offering char siew for lunch and oyster omelette for dinner. The food court is located on Jalan Bunga Raya street and it’s a great option for either lunch or dinner.

On my last visit to Melaka, I went there for the char siew which is one of my guilty pleasure. I have always been crazy for barbecued pork.

At 7 ringgit for the big portion, it’s a hell of a deal.  Just order, pick a seat and they will bring your plate to your table.

Fatty with the right amount of crunchy.

Simple and delicious.  That’s it!  Pork, a little bit of egg, rice, and some sauce.


There is a cart selling fresh sugarcane juice parked right in front of Medan Makan.

Doesn’t get fresher than this. The cold sugarcane juice is much appreciated is a place as hot as Melaka.

If you are in Melaka and you want to eat a quick and tasty lunch, join the local lunch crowd at Medan Makan. Look for this sign. It’s maybe a 15-20 min walk from the main Jonker street.
