Cendol!

A long queue all the time. But the cendol and food are good, plus, the environment is unique! Try to be there earlier to avoid the crowd.

Ordered ice kachang and ice kachang with durian. Their gula melaka was condenced below the bowl of crushed iced. The durian taste was so weak you didnt even feel it. I also ordered their fried shrimps dumpling for my son. All I could said was this is the first time I allowed my son to dont eat his food. Their... More

This place always has a line of people waiting to eat! The cendol is wonderful and the atmosphere of the cafe is very friendly and inviting. Laksa looked good too and had great reviews although we didn't have time to try it ourselves.

We made a quick stopover here for their cendol and daughter had rice with fish soup. The cendol was very good, flavourful and they didn't skimp on ingredients. The palm sugar is however quite 'caramelly' in consistency which is different and have to say makes the eating experience less smooth. The rice and fish soup was nice and daughter enjoyed... More

After I'd eaten here once I kept coming back for lunch every day of my stay in Melaka. The food is really tasty and it's easy to order because everything is depicted on the board and has numbers. I tried laksa and other soups, fish, chiken, just everything was good. I only didn't like icy dessert, it wasn't a kind... More

The place has several local cuisines that will satisfy your hawker food inclinations but it is the cendol that won my heart. Rich, unadulterated gula melaka syrup (local brown sugar) on shaved ice and soft cendol and beans cooked to a firm but soft texture makes this dessert to die for especially in the exceptionally hot weather. Price is RM6... More

I've not been to melaka in 6 years. Ate at Jonker 88 and the food and dessert is as good as I remembered. Well worth the queue in the hot sun. No regrets!

This little cafe is brilliant. You can order your food and get it almost immediately. The quality of the food is excellent and we went back twice for the Chicken Rendang, #35, which had a wonderful coconut curry base. We could not find Chicken Rendang of that quality anywhere else we travelled in Malaysia. There is always a crowd eating... More

Highly recommended! We tried: - Laksa Yuan Yang. What a fantastic combo! It was a mix of assam laksa and the conventional curry laksa, so it was the best of both worlds. Tangy and creamy flavors melded beautifully in one bowl. The stall is generous with its ingredients so there's a lot of fish meat in the laksa. Rojak -... More
