Spot the crowd by the roadside along Jalan SS15/3B every afternoon to find Subang Jaya's favourite local dessert, cendol. For a budget afternoon respite, have this rich yet refreshing RM1.80 bowl. An Indian uncle works the whirring machine to churn chunks of finely shaved ice, as another tops it with palm sugar, coconut milk, red bean and the jelly-like green delights known as cendol. The streetside stall lacks proper seating but part of the charm here is enjoying your cendol among the many other standing patrons. In case you're hankering for more to munch on, there is scrumptious Rojak (RM4.50) worth joining the queue for and also, traditional Indian snacks — these light bites garner less fame than the former, but we guarantee they're just as good minus the queue! Get the spiced Onion Pakora (batter-fried onions, from RM2), an insanely addictive snack that you will keep reaching into the brown paper bag, as well as the tasty Dhal Vadai (dhal fritters, RM0.50 per piece).
Avg price per person: RM10
