Yummy Assam Laksa & Passionfruit dessert

Average cendol dessert but Assam laksa still as good. I rated very good for the Assam laksa. . My daughter likes the passionfruit dessert. Best to go early about 10:30am. After that, better do takeaway because the large crowd will start coming in. Tips for kids who can't take spicy food but wants... read 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

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.

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
