Chendol

Hot day
Lucky got this although the ice has melted during the delivery

♥️😚 Local favourite dessert - Chendol (S$2). Portion size is just right and not too much as this is a very rich dessert.

Combined with the sweetness of the red beans, palm sugar, pandan jelly & coconut milk it makes a great dessert to have on a hot day. Requested for less sugar, as i find the red beans were already quite sweet. Must try if you visit this hawker centre.

On the eve of National Day, i get to enjoy the scenic view of Gardens by the Bay form the Kallang PCN we woke up at 6am to “explore”. Then had breakfast at one of the better brunch places in Singapore - enter Sarnies, before walking to Chinatown and have my Singaporean Kopi after a milky, cafe masala chai latte. This was not before stopping by this non descript chiffon and roll cake stall which had Dr Leslie Tay’s article displayed- at $1.80 per slice of chiffon I found this one of the softest chiffons I’ve had and was very pleased.

At Chinatown complex food centre I had only space for desserts so the chendol that Our Grandfather Story featured we had to try. It was a good bowl of chendol at $2 considering how the slightly savoury pandan tadpole jellies are handmade.

But my win for the day was Xin Xuan’s Min Chiang Kueh, I love pancakes so corollary, I love Chinese pancakes. The ones here are soft and delicious that it made me feel like they were everything I could have ever wanted.

#HappyNationalDay I do love the country I live in✨

No question, this was an excellent chendol. But what fascinated me more was how it subscribed more to street food elsewhere, like Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan. Fresh, rich and authentic ingredients, small portion, cheap.

I am not a fan of chendol but when I first tasted this chendol , I was converted .

Plump jelly , homemade red beans , a very very aromatic gula Melaka .

Granted that the hawker scene has been affected during this period - but I found a steady stream of customers both young and old alike visiting this stall .

Let’s chendol the virus !

This is so good, especially on a hot sunny day! I like that you can actually adjust the level of sweetness by asking for less or more gula Melaka. I ask for less sweet, the boss told me if not enough I can come back to ask for more gula Melaka. The green strips are so fragrant, full of pandan taste.
