MELBOURNE | Aunty Franklee is a Malaysian restaurant in Melbourne’s CBD created by twins Francesca and Fiorn Lee. The twins have drawn upon their Malaysian heritage to offer a focused range of traditional Malaysian dishes with a twist. From the start the menu is inviting and a bit different. It’s presented in a little metal tin, each section placed on a separate postcards. These postcards not only contain the menu, but also a small story about how the dish is made or how it links back to the twin’s family. It is quirky and rather endearing.

As soon as you look at Aunty Franklee’s menu it is evident that the main focus of the restaurant is  bat kut teh, a luscious pork and chicken bones broth which is boiled for hours with 23 spices until the beautiful flavours infuse. This is their signature dish for a reason, it is utterly delicious. The broth is intense and hearty while the slowed cooked meat is tender and moist. The recipe for this delicious dish has been passed down three generations of the Lee family starting with Grandpa Francis. Why mess with something that has been perfected?

If  you are not in the mood for bat kut teh there is the option of lamb rib, chicken, pork or beef ribs that have been stewed for several hours in spices then char-grilled. This is served with multi grain rice, soft boiled tea egg, greens and aromatic herbs. Traditional with a twist. All the meats are delicious however the standout is the chicken which is aromatic and moist.

The char kway teow is also fantastic. This dish comprises of flat rice noodles stir fried in pork fat, it is very addictive however not the dish to choose if you’re looking for a light, healthy option.  It is currently a special, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it transition onto the regular menu as it’s so good.

For a sweet finish to your meal, try the black pepper and fried curry leaf ice-cream. This is a collaboration dish with N2 Extreme Gelato which is light, aromatic and unusual.

If you are on Russell Street and looking for a tasty Malaysian feed, Aunty Franklee is well worth considering. The generous opening hours mean you can get your fix of bat kut teh until 4:00am, any day of the week.
