The hostel owners at Serrai Inn gave me a list of recommended things to eat in Melaka. I did get to try a few but not all. I'm going to post their pictures here in case anyone ever stumbles upon this and is interested.
Unfortunately I found Melaka really boring. The food was pretty tasty but there wasn't very good public transportation and I didn't have car. I visited the Zheng He / Cheng Ho Museum but it pretty much sucked.

This place had these yummy chicken rice balls.
Chicken Rice Balls, quite good.
This little kid was working at the restaurant. I guess there are no child labor laws?
These cookies were soooo good. I can't remember what they were called now.
