Picked a random place at Jonker Street to have laksa and chendol (Luiz Cafe). The laksa was awful but the chendol was ok. Very expensive too (Singapore prices). Wish they were more generous with the Gula Melaka though. So my advise is find a good place for laksa and don’t go to the touristy looking places. Somehow the grittier the place (coffeeshops) the tastier the food was. Just a general rule.
