Another something along Jonker Street. Jonker88 recieved many reviews. I saw plenty of pictures on their cendol and a lot of good yummy review on it.

But...maybe I was expecting too much.

"Jonker Dessert 88, most popularly known as, Jonker88.com, is a cultural entity in form of museum café, legally formed on 1997 in Malaysia. Jonker88.com is the subsidiary of Jia Seng Art Gallery which was incorporated in year of 1986 in Melaka, Jonker Street, now known as Jalan Hang Jebat, headed by Jason & Johnson Yoong, family team are Jenny and CS Yoong, all born in Melaka"

Nyonya Asam Laksa (RM3.50)

Baba Laksa (RM3.50)

Baba Chicken Laksa (RM3.50)

Overall the laksas were nice. The three laksa had very rich distinct taste. However I would prefer if the Baba laksa has less coconut milk in the. ...then again, that wouldn't be Baba laksa minus the coconut milk. Hehe.

I was quite filled to I ordered a plate of Goreng-goreng with homemade Baba sauce (RM3) which reminded me of Penang Lobak. Fishballs, soya sheets (the foo choke), tou foo and some raw vegetables,.. the sauce that came with it was some peanut base sweet sauce.

Finally the Baba Cendol (RM1.80). A little dissapointed... I was expecting baboom stuff but this cendol was just alright for me. The sugar used was a different type of sugar compared to the normal black sugar. This was thick and stickier, very much like the 'mak nga' syrup. Maybe it's the Baba style that I'm not used to...

Ah well.. I will just have to return to Melaka and have more Baba and Nyonya dishes to find ones that really catches my taste buds!
