Ayam Masak Lemak Cili Padi @ RM 9.00
Spicy chicken dish prepared with turmeric, lemongrass, pounded bird's eye chilli and flavorful creamy coconut milk. The spiciness definitely brings extra kick to the taste bud.

Mee Rebus @ RM 8.00
One of the popular noodles dish in Malaysia. It's the yellowish noodles served with a thick spicy potato-based and shrimps gravy garnished with a hard-boiled egg, spring onions, bean sprouts, fried shallots, tau kwa (dried/ fried beancurd) and lime juice.

The name of the restaurant "SAMBAL" which literally means chilli paste caught my attention as I love spicy food. The food served by SAMBAL is adequate/complacent but there is still room for improvement. Work harder!

Sam Patissier @ Plaza Mahkota, Malacca/Melaka

It was another hidden gem recommended by my dearest brother and sister in law at Plaza Mahkota in the historical city of Malacca.

Situated right behind the famous Nadeje Patisserie Cafe, Sam Patissier offers a medley range of patisseries with prices that will amaze you!

Sam Pang, formerly from Ritz Carlton, Singapore, brought his incredible patisserie talent and experience back to his home town, Malacca. He also attended FHA2006 Culinary Challenge at Orchard Hotel, Singapore and Macaron Pastry Training in Bangkok, Thailand.

Black Forest Cake @ RM 6.00
A glorious piece of Black forest cake- delightfully chocolaty cake with the richness offset by layers of sharp tasting berries.
Read more about history of Black Forest Cake- here.

Chocolate Lava @ RM 3.80
Also known as molten chocolate lava cake. A chocolate lover should not leave without trying the black forest and chocolate lava cakes. Both prepared with top quality Belgian chocolate and it's a memorable one indeed.

SamPartissier_012 SamPartissier_006

Cappuccino Mouse @ RM 6.50
An elegant dessert worth a try! Love the light yet rich and mesmerizing taste of cappuccino. Wonderful!

Cheese souffle @ RM 7.50
Chocolates and strawberries, always my favorite. I was eyeing for this piece of cheese souffle when I first entered the shop. A pleasant piece of light and fluffy souffle strawberry cake that excites one's senses. Awesome!

SOMEMORE? Well, YES! Complementary cakes from Sam, the patissier!

SamPartissier_014 SamPartissier_010

Blood Orange Mille crepe cake
Another unique masterpiece by Sam. Blood orange crepe cake, served frozen or chilled for a different feel for the blood orange jelly layer. Aesthetically pleasing and of course taste bud tantalizing.

And so, now you know where to find gorgeous crepe cakes besides Nadeje Patisserie Cafe.

Strawberry White Chocolate cake
A mercifully lychee with white chocolate cake served frozen. A wonderful choice for a refreshing taste.


Macarons @ RM 2.00 per piece (Lemon, Green Tea, Peppermint & Chocolate)
Although I am not a big fan of macarons, those served here are not too sweet, crispy on the outside and soft and creamy in the inside- pretty satisfying!

Sam Patissier, a gastronomic indulgence not to be missed. Putting aside it's simple set up, the desserts served are made with high quality ingredients and prepared with remarkable passion. Sam was indeed an undiscovered talent, and we believe that his passion, courtesy and sincerity will definitely take his patisseries to the new height.

Thank you, Sam for the wonderful sharing session.
