I still remember when I first time came is past few years and that time I went with some of my friends from Singapore. Since they so excited to try the Malacca food, I bring them to have a dessert & baba nyonya food there.
From what I know, Jonker 88 Dessert Museum Cafe was formed back in 1997 by the Yoong Family who are all native Melaka people and it is located in the famous heritage district called Jonker Street (Jalan Hang Jebat).
A local favourite, this quaint little cafe serves local Melaka desserts, noodles and also rice which is part of the Baba-Nyonya cuisine or Peranakan Cuisine. Melaka has also been awarded a UNESCO World Heritage status in 2009.
Once you step into the cafe, you will notice that there are a lot of museum pieces displayed throughout the cafe. It’s not only a cafe but also a museum. that’s why they known as Museum Cafe. There’s have an aged wooden display cabinets hold priceless antiques and memorabilia which is in the front portion of the cafe.
I’m not really good in cendul tasting since for me most of the cendul or ice kacang is the same. The basic ingredients of this dessert consist of shaved ice, starch noodles with pandan flavouring, red beans, coconut milk and gula melaka.
Eight Precious Cendol (E.P.C) @ RM3.00. This cendol known E.P.C because they as had eight different ingredients under the shaved ice. Not only they have peanuts and cendol (green colour) bout also other ingredients that are pretty obvious but I didn’t check the rest of the ingredients though. Gula Melaka (palm sugar) and Santan were heavily drizzled on both desserts.
Me & Alvin.
Suddenly met him after I finish ate the cendul. He & his group also wanna have some dessert XD
Zoe, Rehka, Christine, Ellyse Sister, Ellyse (behind), Kingston, Vivienne (peach color shirt), Steph, Eiko, Me & MJ.
Overall I will vote:
7/10 for the service. Too crowd & there is no service.
8/10 for the food quality and quantity of the food excellent. Awesome & Cheap.
6/10 for the environment. Cosy interior but always pack. difficult to get seat.
