Malacca is located on the Ground Floor of Jupiter Place, 136 St. Makati City. For reservations you may call 8993587 or 8954282.

Anyone with a penchant for flavorful fare may have already sampled classic Malaysian food staples like tangy Hainanese Chicken, sweet and savory Satay, spicy Sambal Prawns and hearty Nasi Goreng. Yet not everyone has discovered the richness of Malaysia in its truest form here at home. Right on the doorstep of Makati is Malacca, the Philippines’ first and ONLY premier authentic Malaysian restaurant owned by Malaysians and serving cuisine prepared by Malaysians. Named after the province in Malaysia founded in 1377, Malacca offers a taste of the richness and intensity of Malaysian heritage. Malacca is situated on the ground floor of Jupiter Place near Bel-Air Village. It exudes a welcoming atmosphere reminiscent of the true spirit of Malaysian fine dining which is a fusion of Malay, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Diners who love the vibrancy of Southeast Asian dishes are greeted with snippets of history and culture strewn about the room in true Malaysian form. Exquisite wooden pieces, which are actual antique window panels, adorn the walls of this “little Malaysia”. Malaysian art on glass panels, antique Malacca marble tables and a display of Malay warrior are only a few vestiges found in this bona fide Malaysian restaurant. When it comes to food, only the freshest, purest and all-natural ingredients are used in every single dish, in keeping with authentic Malaysian culinary practice. This piece of Malaysian heaven imports shrimp paste or Belacan, herbs, spices and other essential ingredients straight from Malaysia while vegetables (Chinese cabbage, lettuce and chilies) are grown and harvested from an all-organic farm in Tagaytay managed by Malacca. This guarantees the freshness of each authentic Malaysian dish, from savory Penang Char Kwey Teow, Curry Laksa and Beef Rendang, hot and cold beverages such as Tarik, Barley with Lemon and Srabat Tea Ginger and sweet endings like Coconut Jelly, Chendol and Ice Kacang. Malacca also offers Halal-certified dishes in their menu. This premier establishment endeavors to make each guest feel the true essence of its motherland through its rich flavors, colors and textures. Malaysians they would feel right at home in the restaurant while those who have been to the land of “Truly Asia” would feel a sense of nostalgia and déjà vu. And those who have only seen this exotic land in photographs will truly step into the Malaysian picture. Malacca provides a total dining experience borne of the passion for good food and a unique heritage shaped from diverse cultures. As Malacca’s Chef Mohammed Said would say “Cooking is a passion which can be enjoyed in Malaccan cooking.” No truer words were spoken.
