Melaka, Sikh Temple


Tonight, we have been eating at the Sikh temple called “Gurdwara Sahib Melaka” and enjoyed the experience of free food. The is part of the Sikh religion to offer food to people who need. Well, we don’t really need but we wanted to try at least one time. Since we arrived at Ringo’s Foyer, we have heard about this place. Several people told us : “This is fine, you can go there and eat”. The food is vegetarian. They give us as much rice as we want plus some different sauce mixed with veggies. The offered us as well some flashy green jelly stuff, a sweet soup, “crackers” and water. Our plates was more than full and delicious food. Actually this is the best food I’ve ever eat in Melaka :-)

When I was at the Thai temple in Singapore we had to wash our plates. Here it’s the same but they have a quite clever way to do it. There is 5 big sinks in a row. The first one has a tap to clean roughly the dishes before dipping them in the second sink. The second sink has dishwasher soap mixed in the water to clean properly the dishes. The last 3 sinks have only clear water in them. We dip the dishes from the second sink until the last one to rinse. That way, they don’t use much water compared to the amount of people who can eat. That’s clever!

  1. Nice! The food looks very yummy except the green space stuff …. it’s too green.
    I’ve had a meal at Sikh temple once, I enjoyed their vegetarian food.
    The people were very generous.
