Tourist price and nice

The food is nice if you are from Malaysia. It is pretty cheap for tourist price. Beware of the crowd during weekends especially peak hours. It has authentic Nyonya food taste.

While it was expected that space would be limited for most of the Melaka eateries along Jonker Street, our experience with Jonker88 would have been bearable had the cashiers been more friendly other than "what order number and RM15" that was followed with a rude stare that told us to get out of the way. It was bad enough that... More

Penang used to have the best, but now the title goes to Melaka in my opinion. The soup is to die for and I would have dined there 5 times a day if not for my sore throat. They also serve cendol. A spoon of laksa and a spoon of cold cendol, mouth-watering. Just be warned of long lines if... More

Wondering if it is overhyped? It isn't. Delicious and affordable. Sometimes hard to get a seat and staff is all business.

Fantastic Nonya laksa and Assam Laksa. This place is my main purpose of going to Melaka each time. The standard has dropped over the years but still fantastic. The chendol used to be Super great but has dropped a lot each time I visit and now its good only (not super great). Great food at great prices but there is... More

Was recommended to go as nothing else was open. If you like fish noodles, it's the place for you! Curry was pretty alright, house specialty fish noodles had canned tuna in it (which I personally don't fancy), desserts looked good. Probably won't go back unless nothing else is open.

We never fail to visit 88 Jonker Walk at each Malacca visit to have a bowl of their Nonya Laksa, Penang Asam Laksa at MYR6 per bowl and of course their famous Chendol served with thick Gula Melaka at MYR4 per bowl. Regulars are privilaged to a small pot of extra Gula Melaka. Shiok! To beat the crowd, order and... More

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 fried shrimp... 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
