“Unique! Yummy! Healthy!”
Review of Joez Coconut

Joez Coconut
Ranked #13 of 40 Dessert in George Town
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Read of this delicious dessert in the foodie blogsphere and went looking for it while visiting Penang. It was a plain looking old shop house with only couple of tables inside, really kind of make-shift.

But do not be put off by the not too-promising shop appearance, Joez served up a most unusual yet simple and natural dessert/snack - natural coconut jelly - silky smooth, wobbly jelly of natural coconut juice in a young coconut. Joe, the owner of Joez said it was 100% natural coconut juice with no additive, no sugar and no gelatin added, the gelling was achieved by pasteurizing a whole young coconut in the oven. The jelly tasted of...real coconut juice - subtle sweetness and natural fragrance of young coconuts, the flesh of the coconut added texture and flavor. So simple, so healthy, so refreshing and yummy especially on a hot, humid day. It was a guilt-free dessert that got me really excited like no dessert had for a long time.

Joez also served a delicious looking coconut milkshake which was apparently very popular too as I observed quite a few people buying several take-away servings each.

We paid RM$4.00 for a coconut jelly.
