Did you hear about the possibility of the temperature going up by 3’C? Blame it on El Nino. While it’s getting hot in here, beat the heat with a good bowl of cendol.
1. Penang Road Famous Teowchew Chendul, Giant Supermarket Subang Jaya
You read it right. The famous Penang Road cendol right here in the Klang Valley. Unless you’re planning on a road trip up north soon, the Subang outlet is as authentic as it gets. According to PeteFormation Foodie Adventure, “the taste of chendol with lots of giant red beans is out of this world. Wa lau leh, yummy dessert on a hot day!”
2. SS15, Subang Jaya
If you’re familiar with this area in Subang, then you’d probably seen the long lines. Located near the Shell petrol station, McDonalds and the ol’ Gazebo, Bangsar-Babe says, “short strands of pandan jelly, red beans and sweet corn in shaved ice drizzled with a generous amount of thick palm sugar and topped with fresh coconut milk. MMmmMm… how can you say no to this?? It’s so good that you will be planning on ordering a second bowl…even before you finish your first.” Enough said.
3. Cendol Titiwangsa
Paying bills and waiting in line are just sucky. The next time you need to settle your phone/Streamyx bill, drop by the Titiwangsa TM branch, spot the man with the goods and and have a bowl of cendol under the tree. “The combination of gula melaka and santan with the pulut makes this throat cooler thicker, sweeter and a steadying hand on thoughts of mayhem,” says Fried Chillies. While you’re there, do us a favour and have some rojak.
4. Cendol Klang
This cendol outlet has been serving its customers since the 70’s. Apparently the owner used to sell by the side of the road on his motorcycle for over 20 years before he could afford a shoplot. Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong says, “all four of us had the original cendol which has a thick, creamy coconut milk with soft but not mushy cendol, red kidney beans and sufficient gula melaka syrup.” Yumz! See here and here (with address and map) for more reviews on Cendol Klang.
5. Little Penang Cafe
I like the cendol here because it’s not too sweet. Priced at RM4.20 per bowl, it has just the right amount of coconut milk and gula melaka.
6. Cendol Mamanda, Ampang
According to our colleague and Ampang girl, Claudia, you can find this cendol next to the Mamanda reservoir. She says it’s amazingly sweet. Look out for a van which apparently has been parked there since Claudia was a kid.
We heard there’s a good cendol stall in front of the 7-11 behind YMCA (Jalan Tun Sambanthan 4). But as it turns out, it’s Ah Keong’s ABC Stall. Ais Kacang, not cendol… Sorry! For what it’s worth, masak-masak says the Ais Kacang there is all kinds of crazy: gula melaka syrup, evaporated milk; “rainbow of goodies” (black cincau, green cendol, red bean, large kidney beans and corn) and topped with young coconut flesh! Read her review here.
8. Nyonya Kitchen, No. 80 Jalan SS21/39, Damansara Uptown
According to Malaysian Food Guide, Nyonya Kitchen makes a mean cendol because it tastes “like magic”. Priced at RM2.50, this signature dessert comes with additional gula melaka.
9. Seksyen 17, Petaling Jaya
This one’s pretty close to our office at Jaya One. Located on Jalan 17/1A (close to the Rothman roundabout), some of us at the office agree it’s got to be the best cendol in the area.
10. Bukit Rambai Cendol
Melaka cendol makes its presence felt in the Valley by opening an outlet in Kelana Mall. Auntie Koh, the woman behind this famous peranakan cendol, makes cendol with fresh creamy coconut milk and generous servings of gula melaka. It opens from 10 am to 6 pm.
