You'll enjoy the restaurants and shopping in Bukit Baru. You might want to make time for a stop at Melaka International Trade Center (MITC) or AEON Melaka Shopping Centre.

Bukit Baru
A wonderfully delicious Indian restaurant with shockingly inexpensive food. Marty's favorite was the banana leaf set meal with chicken! I enjoyed the dosa's and the chicken curry. If you love Indian food, you will love this place! We ate there at least ten times while we were in Malacca.
