Es Cendol

$5.80 · 2 Reviews

Not my thing as only the gula melaka(according to the waitress, I tot it was gula jawa) and jackfruit was sweet. The gula melaka was fantastic though and overall it was of a decent quality

I've found possibly the best chendol and kueh lapis in Singapore.

The Es Cendol is a riot of colour, with heaps of red beans, diced jackfruit and plump ribbons of the namesake jelly crowning the top of gula Jawa-drenched ice. (Gula Jawa is Indonesian palm sugar, which is sweeter and richer than gula melaka). The emerald-hued cendol itself is a winner – it's made with Indonesian flour and has a slightly chewier bite.

And that Kue Lapis Legit is legitimately good. It's not too greasy, and has a mellow, buttery taste and fragrance nuanced with spices – they cinnamon is distinct, but not overpowering.

Look out for these Indonesian delicacies, which will be available at Palette at Capitol Piazza come June!
