Do not miss out on this place!
Although I was not really impressed by Jonker Street, I have to admit that this one place has made an impression on me. Firstly, to see so many people queuing up for Assam Laksa piqued my interest. Secondly, to see that the majority of the queue was formed by locals was even more startling. So I joined the queue too!
After about 20 minutes of lining up and ordering my Assam Laksa, I can say that I've had the good fortune to taste one of the best foods in Malacca! The gravy is thick and spicy and the noodles are quite filling as well.
A definite must-visit place when I return to Malacca again!
Well known asam laksa in Melaka, with reasonable price
The must have food in Jonker Street! The asam laksa is really tasty! You should try for Nyonya Laksa in Jonker 88 if you visit Jonker Street! Furthermore, the cendol is made up of gula melaka and hence it has a taste and smell of sweet coconut, and the price is reasonable too! Normally i will went to Jonker 88 in the afternoon, as less crowd compared to night, especially when there's Jonker Night Market, which is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.Sometimes you have to queue up really long just to have a bowl of asam laksa! ;)
Even the locals like it too!!
Great laksa and cendol
My favorite stop at Jonker Street! I will never miss this shop to get good laksa and cendol. Most of my friends queue to get a taste of laksa or cendol while most of the time I get a good seat before I order my meal! The laksa does not have big portion but is enough to cure my addiction to laksa whilethe cendol is a very good dessert after you finish the laksa. Well, you may go for cendol first if you hot. Normally I will get one cendol once I enter the shop and a durian cendol after I finish my laksa.
Best Cendol I have eaten
Jonker 88 is extremely crowded and for good reason. These few stores probably make up the best easting spot along the whole Jonker Street.
A tip is the queues and seating area are not related to each other. So maybe try and find a seat first and if its impossible then just go for take aways! I am not a fan of the yong tau foo or Nonya food here. I just love the Cendol. Its nearly impossible to get a seat during normal eating hours. So join the queue and grab some takeaways.
This the greatest Cendol I have ever eaten and on a hot day after a long queue stuffing cendol in your mouth is one of the most amazing feelings you will have.
Best Asam Laksa and Cendol in Melaka
When you walk along the Jonker Street, you will spot a long queue in front of a hawker even it is under a hot, sunny day. That's Jonker 88! You must be patient enough to wait for your turn. A small tip: before ordering food, you better reserve your place, otherwse you will end up eating your food standing in crowded place. It's true! the hawker is always full and it is not easy to get the place, you may need to sit with strangers as well, that's what I can tell. There are diffrent kinds of asam laksa: baba, nyonya, baba nyonya and wide range of cendols. My personal recommendation is the mango cendol, sweet and sour! Great!
