Bunga Raya Popiah, Melaka

Continuing on with my Melaka food posts.

There is one food item that I'd definitely not leave Melaka without eating it at least once -


Bunga Raya Popiah
Ah, the legendary Bunga Raya Popiah. One is never enough :p 
I'd often refer popiah as an "Asian Burito". Popiah is essentially a spring roll, if I were to directly translate it from the Hokkien dialect to English, it'd be "thin biscuit". 
The filling of popiah in Malaysia typically consist of various shredded veggies such as shredded cucumber, braised yam bean, tofu strips, then slathered on with sweet sauce and chilli, rolled up, sliced, and served! Popiahs are typically vegetarian, but the ones in Melaka are typically laden with pork lard - which gives it the extra crunch and oomph!
And my favourite place for popiah is definitely Bunga Raya Popiah! This humble little stall only sell one item - Popiah! Their popiah is definitely pricier compared to other places, but I feel their price is justified by the fillings - their popiah is packed full to the brim, full of the crunch from the pork lard! I'm dreaming of this popiah as I am typing this 😋

Head's up that it gets really busy on a weekend! Be prepared to queue as people tend to buy in bulk, and there are only two uncles manning the booth, doing all the rolling and wrapping. The best is to arrive when they just open, around 12:30pm. You may request for less chilli/no chilli/extra chilli while making your order.
