After rested our feet at Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, we continued our venture to Jonker Walk.
Jonker Street is now known as Jalan Hang Jebat. It is the China town of Malacca. The building with lanterns is San Shu Kong which sell local food product.
The street is decorated with traditional umbrellas and lanterns.
Jonker Walk is lined with old houses with Baba and Nyonya heritage.
There are many souvenir and antique shops.
A street performer.
One of the hawker’s food area.
Some fancy buns.
I tried a couple of the grilled fish cake (“otak-otak”). They were quite oily.
It so happened that it was a night market day. So, the road was closed for street vendors to set up their stalls.
We had dinner at one section of Jonker Walk with food vendors and portable tables set up for customers.
We tried several items. I ordered a Nyonya laksa.
It also came with cockles. The addition of jicama and cucumber makes it different from Kuala Lumpur’s laksa. This is RM6 (about CAD1.80).
My sister ordered Asam Laksa.
The asam laksa was pretty good.
She also ordered a cendol for dessert. The asam laksa and cendol was just RM10 (about CAD3).
I got the Fruit Rojak for dessert. This is RM6 (about CAD1.80).
After dinner, we were lured to the stage by the sound of kara-oke.
We sat down to enjoy a few songs before we shopped a bit more at the night market.
It was dark by the time we left Jonker Walk to return to our hotel.
