What to Eat and Do in Jonker Street Melaka

Jonker Street or also known as Jonker Walk, is the Chinatown street of Melaka. It is an old, beautiful heritage street in Malacca City in Malacca (Melaka), Malaysia.

It is a street filled with 17th century historical houses. You can start your journey at either ends of the street. On one end is the Jonker Walk Arch. The other end is at the Tan Kim Seng Bridge. The landmarks are H&M or San Shu Gong.

From Friday to Sunday from 6.00 p.m. until 12 midnight, the street becomes Jonker Street Night Market – a vibrant outdoor hub of food and goods. The street will be closed to vehicles. Hence, it becomes easy to walk and roam the street on foot. It can be crowded and busy with activity.

At night, the street can good for night street photography as the Jonker Walk Arch and the street are lighted up.

To avoid the crowd, go early in the morning and on weekdays. Much better walking around when there are fewer people.

Samfu Nyonya Restaurant at Melaka, Malaysia

Just a short 10 minutes walk to and from Jonker Street is Samfu Restaurant in Malacca (Melaka). If you’re craving for Nyonya food, you’ll be glad to know that Samfu Restaurant serves Nyonya food.

Samfu Restaurant is not like most other restaurants in a shoplot along the (main) road. Only people who know the location or Google it, would be able to find it; as it is found inside a hotel – Mimosa Hotel.

Samfu Restaurant is on the ground floor of the hotel and just past the reception and lobby area.

How to get to Samfu Restaurant

If you’re driving, parking is available for free for 1 hour in Mimosa Hotel.

Do take note that Jalan Bunga Raya is a one-way street. If you missed the hotel, you can turn into Jalan Kee Ann or further up at Jalan Munshi Abdullah. You can park along the roads where they’re paid parking – even on Sundays.

Download the Smart Vehicle Parking Melaka 2 or SVP Melaka app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Tap the building icon at the bottom and then go to the “OnStreet Parking” and “All Council”. Then “Choose Vehicle” and “Choose Hourly Pass”. Parking is from as little as RM0.40 for half an hour to RM0.60 per hour, on an hourly basis.

To add your vehicle, tap the profile icon at the bottom right and then tap “Vehicle” to “Add Vehicle”. To purchase parking credits, tap the wallet icon in the middle and then you can reload from as little as RM5.00 to as much as RM50.00 with online banking or debit/credit card.

However, if you’re walking from Jonker Street, you can walk along Jalan Hang Kasturi and enjoy the back-lanes of one of Malacca’s street. Then walk along Jalan Kampung Pantai towards the Jambatan Kg Jawa. It is one of the go-to spots to pose with the Malacca River as your background. Then cross the mini-bridge to Jalan Jawa and then to Jalan Bunga Raya, where Samfu Restaurant is at.

Jambatan Kampung Jawa

Alternatively, from Jonker Street, cross the Tan Kim Seng Bridge and take a stroll along the Malacca River. While at it, you can also tour the Dutch Square (Red Square) Melaka and Christ Church Melaka. Then from Jalan Laksamana (the main road), continue walking down towards Jalan Bunga Raya. Samfu Restaurant is at the junction at Jalan Kee Ann. 

Samfu Restaurant

Samfu Restaurant has a feel of elegance and class in it. There is ample space and tables for 4 to 8 people per table. There is also a small private room with 2 round tables for 16 people.

Start off with the lemon grass with ginger tea to quench your thirsts. The tea is served in those old-fashioned flasks. 

We ordered omelette, otak-otak, babi chili garam, pongteh, masak lemak nenas prawns, steamed okra with dried chili paste, and fried eggplant with ebi.

The babi chili garam was very small slices of pork meat in chili garam. The pongteh was unique, as it was usually either pongteh chicken or pongteh pork. This was a combination of pork and chicken in a dish. The masak lemak nenas prawns is also a recommended dish because it’s a curry replacement and adds a sweet and spicy flavour to the rice.

End the meal with a bowl of cendol.
