Cendol

$3.80 · 22 Reviews

We could also tell that the gulamelaka used was of good quality and was served generously. However, the chendol could have done with more ice and could have been shaved finer. Somehow there seemed to be something amiss but I just couldn’t point my finger on it.

The Cendol was creamy and milky, which when paired with the generous gula melaka drizzled all over, makes for a really good dessert. I only wished for it to come in a bigger serving though, as it was gone too soon 😭

But I have to disagree with the pundits on this one. Too little gula melaka, too diluted/not strong enough and the Pandan gave this a bitter end. I don’t know how come Pandan is bitter. I think this will qualify for the Healthier Choice symbol.

The nasi is lemak but not jelak. Very frangrant. The sambal is sweet, salty, spicy and delicious! The secret ingredient (we think) is chay poh (shredded pickled daikon). The chicken was juicy and tender. The fish was my favourite. Haven’t had ikan kembung (chub mackerel) for a while. It was fried so the skin is crispy but the meat is still juicy and tender. And then we had Chendol. The green squiggles were, I think homemade, because it is not the luminous green ones you get in most places. Also, you can taste the Pandan flavour. You mix that with coconut milk and palm sugar. Just heaven! #nasilemak #chendol #burpple #burpplesg #ikankembung #ikankembunggoreng #eeeeeats #foodporn #foodphotography #coconutmilk

My funny requests just because I think out of the box.
◾◽
Ending my meal with icy cold chendol. I asked for the gula melaka (brown sugar) to be separated so I could control the sweetness. I was rather surprised when the staff asked if I wanted red beans. Well... it used to be just ice and pandan jelly. So I am an ang tau (redbean) person, definitely a must. I dug a hole on top and neatly spooned some in. Then goes the flow of gooey golden brown gula melaka. Pandan jelly are buried below. So now it is my time to go crazy and mix everything. It turns alittle beighy brown depending on how much gula melaka is added. It is coconutty. It is sweet for sure.

My happy sweet moment because eating simple local desserts make me happy.

$12.80++ is very ok for its portion, quality, service and ambiance 👍🏻 cos foodcourt’s nasi is not cheap either nowadays !
Also, the chendol here rockssss!

🍨Given that this dessert often tastes artificial especially the ones in SG, I'm proud to report that The Coconut Club has perfected this classic dessert. Here, the Cendol ($3.80) is creamy and milky, and they didn't stinge on adding gula melaka. Finely shaved ice is topped with freshly squeezed coconut milk, which was very fragrant, creamy, and surprisingly not cloying; the gula melaka gave such characteristic fragrance while not overpowering the coconut milk. The homemade pandan rice flour jelly is pale green and squishy in texture, when you mash them to the roof of your mouth, it sets off a natural pandan flavour. Overall, a very well-balanced and great dessert to end the meal! Still so awed by this great find and can't wait to go back for their other coconut dishes 😋 PS we were there at 3pm near closing and they offered us both bowls on the house. How sweet was that! Merry Christmas everyone ~~~ 🎄
