Jonker 88, Melaka

After having the famous chicken rice ball at Kedai Kopi Chung Wah, just walk along the road  of Jalan Hang Jebat, you will see another famous restaurant which is known as Jonker 88. If you cannot find the place, just ask anyone from a shop along the road about this place, they will surely able to lead you there. Too famous!
One of the must order food here is the laksa from Ah Mah Laksa. So many choices to choose from in this little stall of Ah Mah.
Here is the Ah Mah. Not really old for me but just a little too much white hair only.
The next to order is the famous cendol here. This is what makes this place famous of. Oh, btw...the food here are sold in self-service basis.
They opened in a very old building which left over untouched for hundreds year ago. 
Having these old antiques will just given more the vintage feeling about this old shop.
Displaying the foreign currency notes and other historical picture about this places for you to understand more about them.

Overall: 3/5 - There are two types of famous laksa serve here which are Nyonya Laksa which is the same like Penang laksa and what I have ordered is a Baba laksa which is a coconut spicy based. I love this the most when you asked for a thick noodle. Perfect! Rich coconut milk and little spicy kick with no sourish flavour like the Penang laksa. It is another laksa experience for me.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
