At any given moment in Melaka, you’ll find locals and tourists waiting in line outside Jonker 88. It’s a tourist’s rite of passage to stand on that line. Peranakan style food – Baba Laksa (a cross between curry mee and laksa) and chendol – as well as home-made kuih are among the delicacies served in this habitually packed little café.... More

1. The price was quite reasonable: Baba laksa (RM6), laksa kahwin (RM7), normal cendol (RM4). 2. The portion was questionable. 3. The taste was ok for me, nothing to shout about for hubby

Had wanted to give this place another chance yesterday evening but it was just too packed! Wandered to the eatery next door instead. While the food wasn't fantastic, we left the place satisfied.

You must try the nyonya laksa and durian cendol. This is probably the best place to eat along Jonker Street.

Basically, if you want a bowl of the worst assam laksa ever at ridiculous prices, come here. Also, don't sit outside, it stinks like hell

Very rich taste in an environment of yesteryears. Abit pricey though. Parking can be a nightmare. Portion is quite big. A lot of varieties.

Came with excitement to try the chendol which is apparently popular but was disappointed. Ice was not fine enough, at end there was still a hard lump of ice left. Gula melaka given was tasty but not enough. Hence the whole chendol wasn't sweet or Tasty enough. Believe can get better ones elsewhere. The one in Singapore, served in the... More

There were so many types of laksa; we were spoilt for choice! Ended ordering the Asam Laksa which tasted heavenly. Cendol was so-so.
