Years of good cendol

Have been around for ages. One of the best cendols in Malaysia. Coconut milk is fragrant, so is the palm sugar. Must try when in Kuantan.

Mustafa, knows like nobody else how to present a proper cendol. The Cendol at this small but busy restaurant is just the best and extremely authentic. Mustafa draws me in again and again.

I remember visiting this place once, months ago, during a hot sunny day. It is located along the way Jalan Teluk Cempedak, next to Shell Station. I was told that this is the best cendol in Kuantan town. Yup, the cendol was okay. I wasn’t disappointed at all. The best cendol? I beg to differ.

I had the basic cendol with red beans. The cendol itself was tasty and pandan-fragrant and I could just eat that on its own. The red beans were cooked just right, with the beans soft but still whole, not mushy. Give me a bowlful of just the red beans and I'll be content! It had just the right amount of... More

I tried the special cendol, which had the addition of red beans, sweet corns, and jelly. I could say the cendol suited to my likings, though not the best one that I'd ever tasted. My friend ordered rojak ayam, and my oh my, I totally love the peanut gravy served together! A must-go!

This is just a desert corner but famous for its cendol. You can add a lot of varieties to your cendol and feel the evening breeze as you past your time with your friends.

Being there during my vacation to swiss garden, kuantan last week. Attracted to that cendol shop due to some good review here. As a cendol enthusiast my wife and I surely want to try this one. We ate a plate of mee rojak and off course a bowl of cendol respectively. Obviously it's so special to us. Another down site... More

This is how chendol is originally to be had, before all the fancy addition of peanuts, durian, cincau, and ice cream (gasp!) etc. Just good old chendol with palm sugar, coconut milk and shaved ice. The chendol (the green stuff) is very fresh, not the frozen, tasteless and hard ones that we normally find in cities. Good to have to... More
