Limau Limau Cafe
While strolling down Jonker Street one afternoon in Malacca, I came across the charming Limau Limau cafe. "Limau" means orange in Malay though the walls of the cafe were painted in beautiful lime green. The place was adorned with many vintage pictures of cats and there was even a wall devoted to works ( for sale ) of local artistes from Malacca.
I asked the waiter to introduce a drink as there were just too many on the menu. I was pleasantly surprised by the concoction of lychees and papayas. It was damn delicious and since then , I have made my own version at home. Drinking it just reminds me of the brief yet wonderful moment I had in this cafe.
