If Melaka was the melting pot for cuisines, wherea innumerable of cuisines co-exist, including the Baba Nyonya, Chinese, Indian, Malay, Western, Italian, street food, etc,then Bibik House would be the to-go-zone for any localised Malaccan products.
We met up with Bibik House owners, Mr Lim and Ms Chua, who were generous to show us around the myriad of products being displayed on the shelves in Bibik House. White coffee, among the products being sold, is a popular coffee drink which originated in Ipoh, Malaysia. The white coffee shall not be confused with cappuccino and latte of the western biosphere, it is rather a locally roasted coffee bean, served with condensed milk which makes the texture white.
Bibik House were around since 2003. On a daily basis,they produce freshly made pineapple tarts which is the perfect local Malaccan gift or as a nibble for any person wandering along Jonker Street.
Lim also familiarised us to the many local food products including coconut cookies, Shat Keh Ma (a crunchy sweet and salty snack of which originated from Hong Kong. In Bibik House, there are jars and jars of cincalok being displayed on the shelves, this local condiment or seasoning is popularly being used in the Baby Nyonya cuisine.
Being a sanctuary for local products, the featured Bibik House cendol shall not be a miss for anyone who visits this shop. The cendol is a quintessential Malaccan dessert served with coconut milk, gula Melaka and other edible ingredients. Usually served with shaved ice, this dessert bears the trademark of UNESCO Melaka.
