THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Malacca Restaurant Review

: MALACCA HAS MOVED TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION. This neighborhood dining spot just off the main drag is a casual and sleek space with affordable and interesting dishes. The look could be described as Indochine Moderne, with bamboo and grassy accents, glass pendant and beehive wooden lamps, padded booths and banquettes, and blonde wood tables and chairs. In the back of the restaurant is an impressive wine cooling system with 12 wines on tap, in addition to an engaging list assembled by a World Master Sommelier. The menu is Asian fusion, with Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, and European influences. Starters include pork ribs with a sticky mango BBQ sauce or coconut calamari steak fingers with a sweet tamarind and chili glaze---but the flavor of coconut has gone missing. The savory grilled beef salad is delicious, in addition to the entrée of barbecue hen Malacca Style. The pork tenderloin vindaloo is visually appealing, but the bed of sweet potatoes proves too sweet an accompaniment; the side of broccolini help balance the dish. Desserts are a little weak, like a cloyingly sweet rice pudding with plum wine, or a chocolate mousse whose promised five spices don't come through. Servers are friendly and the vibe is convivial and content.
