Prepare for a long queue to get the famous ice-kacang (translate to Shaved ice) and find a seat after that. But after all these years, the queue never stops getting longer but the satisfaction after eating the shaved ice and laksa is worth the wait!

While most people dwell at restaurants and cafes recommended by lonely planet, there is this stall that sells very yummy popiah and yam cake in front of a boutique shop that many tend to overlook.

Baba Charlie has a humble beginning. They used to make nyonya desserts and delicacies and sell them in night markets. After the Singapore drama "The Little Nyonya" went popular, many came to Melaka to search for the ultimate dessert that the drama marketed: "Rempah Udang". It is fun to watch how they operate the business, with staff cooking in their kitchen as if they are running a little factory.
