Now if you haven't tasted this yummy brown coconut sugar , you haven't been to Melaka, Malaysia! Why else would they name the sugar after the state anyway? Gula Melaka is made from from the sweet, watery sap that drips from cut coconut flower buds. Contrary to belief, it isn't palm sugar but coconut sugar.

What To Buy:
Good Gula Melaka taste lusciously sweet, creamy and rich like caramel when it's soft. To use, pop a piece into a bag and hammer it into small pieces. You can find good, fresh Gula Melaka from this little factory -shop in Jonker Street.

What To Pay: RM4 for about 6 pieces

Address: Along Jalan Kubu
