Finding a place that all your friends will like is always a herculean task. In this case, as it was my birthday, I got to “wear the pants” (as we usually say) and I chose Malaca Too.
Besides being located in this very cool artsy area that is Lx Factory, I had already been to the other restaurant by Yoo Chin, the Malaysian owner. As you can guess, I enjoyed the food from the other place, Duck Tales, and also the attentive customer service that they provided by explaining the dishes and their preparation.
Therefore Malaca Too came to my mind and, my dear fellows, we weren’t disappointed.
1) It used to be a factory and so the tables are located between old big printing machines, which have a great impact on the decor and are a good conversation topic, if you run dry on topics.
2) The food: Vietnamese crepes, green curry, pad thai were all exquisite. There are also many options for those who are vegetarians so no one is left out. Unfortunately we didn’t make it to dessert, but next time I’ll definitely make some room for the black wild Asian rice with coconut milk or the ginger ice cream.
3) Especially cheap during the week, for lunch: Malaca Too has a menu that costs just € 5.90 and includes a glass of tea/soda.
I don’t think I don’t need to give any extra-points, do I? In short Malaca Too is a great restaurant/old factory where you will definitely enjoy oriental food.
