Love the very generous Gula Melaka in Baba Cendol here! I've never failed to visit this place every time when I'm in Malacca. The shredded ice is so fine, kidney beans are so fresh & not hard like the rest of the dessert place. Frankly, one serving is big enough for two sharing. Love their curry laksa too (very thick...

Every town in Malaysia has its own distinct cuisine, and its own style with that most ubiquitous of Asian soups, the laksa. Visiting Melaka for 3D2N this month, I got into the habit of napping in the steamy heat of midday and coming out in the afternoon to explore the taste sensations of Jonker Walk and muse over the varied...

Jonker 88 has been my place of comfort food since i started going to Melaka for weekends more than 10 years ago. i have watched it grow from a charming eating house, to a name that people from almost all over the world queue up for. My favourite dish would be the Nyonya Asam Laksa!! It still tastes just as... More

This is the first place I was recommended for Baba Nyonya laksa and cendol when I first stay in Melaka. It is always crowded and the inside is quite warm. The interior is decorated as such you're sitting in a BabaNyonya house. The food is good. I love the laksa more than the cendol. The must try is to eat... More

You'll have to walk right all the way back. I've been here before and service was much better when malacca is not an Unesco heritage town. Now it's cursed with crowds and bad traffic and nonchalant business owners and servers all Along Jonker street. It's the same, when you order the food, I surely missed the smiles and friendly chat.... More

Must try laksa kahwin just RM8.00 per bowl. Remember to order Baba Cendol too. Always long queue everyday but worth to wait.

Our recent visit before the shop is closed (5pm) : The food appeared to be too salty, the cendol too thick with lotsa coconut milk. And we were "forced" to upgrade our laksa to the special one don't know due to what reason. I think overall the food are too pricey.

Came by here a few days ago to try out the asam laksa. In the end we ordered 2 bowls of jumbo asam laksa and they served us with curry laksa instead. We requested to change back to asam laksa and the staffs rejected as the food were already served. Undeniably the food taste good but is slightly overpriced. Tips... More

As usual, everytime when I travel to Malacca I will sure go back to jonker 88 to eat the delicious noodle. Know the place will be pack with people, therefore I order take away instead of dining there.
