Coffee House @ Avillion Legacy Melaka

A High Tea that’s Value for Money

Spending your weekend in Melaka and want to have a filling meal at an affordable price? The High-Tea at Avillion Legacy Melaka offers value for money, and a range of Asian, Western and fusion cuisine to fill your rumbling tummies.

Avillion Legacy Melaka is a 15-storey, 4-star boutique hotel strategically located in the heart of Melaka, 5 minutes from the town centre. The high tea opens at noon and runs till 4pm on weekends and public holidays. We arrived at about 2 pm. I was joined by JD + Dilly (Red Breakfast) and Kah Wai (photographer). We still had plenty of time to tuck in to the creations of  Executive Chef Sariman.

He tells me that their Nyonya Laksa is one of the best in town, and Malaccan’s seek it out.

The most popular dish amongst us, the Nyonya Laksa was a tasty blend of coconut and spices, with  fragrant lemongrass and coriander, and a squeeze of Kaffir Lime. Create your own with yellow noodles, beansprouts, chilli and spring onions.

If you prefer a milder soup, try the clear and tasty Koay Teow Soup which is served not with Koay Teow, but the same yellow noodles and condiments as the Nyonya Laksa.

Also on offer is the authentic Malacca Popiah, made fresh for you at the Popiah Stall.

This is made with the traditional sweet chili paste, green vegetables, minced tofu, slices of cucumbers, and cooked yambean wrapped in popiah skin. Get the Chef to make you a fresh one as they can be rather soggy if they’ve been sitting out for awhile.

Another interesting concept is the Make-Your-Own-Sandwich counter.

Normally, a high tea would have on offer bite sized sandwiches with an assortment of fillings.

Here at the Coffee House, you can choose from different meats, salad and cheese to make your own full sized sandwich.

Other local dishes on offer include deep fried Samosas, Crispy Wontons, Egg Fried Rice and Mee Goreng Mamak.

Try the Roti Canai from the Indian Corner, served with a creamy dahl and a delicious sambal.

Complement this with the range of pickles and local salads, and the delicious Rojak Buah.

If you’re in the mood for some Western, try the Roast Lamb.

Also available are deep fried spring rolls and Chicken Nuggets.

Wash down your meal with a freshly made hot tea from the Teh Tarik Stall.

Finish off with a selection of local kuih, pastry’s and cakes from the dessert counter.

JD (Red Breakfast) and I indulged in the Ais Kacang.

You can top it off with a scoop of vanilla, Strawberry or Chocolate ice-cream.

At only RM 25 ++ for adults and RM 15++ for children, the High Tea at the Coffee House, Avillion Legacy Melaka offers a wide range of food at a very reasonable price. If you’re in town, make time to check it out.

Try the Coffee House @ Avillion Legacy Melaka for yourself! Starting Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December, tune in to The Big Red Food Review, Eleven2Three with Aly to win RM 100 vouchers. Only on Red FM, Today’s Best Music.
