Baba Laksa Kahwin Nyonya Asam Laksa

That's the name of the noodles we had and it was so good. It's a combination of two classic noodle dishes - the Curry Laksa and Asam Laksa, and you can choose the type of noodles you want. It's really good - rich, flavourful, with the right amount of spice to it, and at an affordable price! Their... read more

We were walking along night market when we spotted the name Jonker 88 and remembered about the good review of the food. There were lot of peoples in the shop but still have enough spaces for 7 of us (although we had to sit separately). My friend bought me a bowl of noodle (it's a self-service style, you order, get...

We tried laksa kahwin, nasi lemak and cendol. The laksa kahwin tastes nice and special. I like the sambal(chili) of nasi lemak. Even though it is difficult to look for seats especially during weekend but it is worth to drop by. Last time the stalls that prepared food located in the entrance of the restaurant but now ady moved inside.... More

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

We patronised this famous eatery at Jonker street a few years ago and wasn't wowed by it. The chendol dessert and food was just average tasting. 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
