“Good Melaka Chendol”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Chendol is a local dessert consists of shaved ice, coconut and what makes it special in Melaka is the Melaka brown sugar, thick with perfect amount of bitterness and sweetness in it. This place is very famous and you won't miss it as people will be queue from outside.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

After trying a few diff chicken rice ball stalls and deciding we prefer normal chicken rice, I decided to give chendol a try. We walked all the way just to find Jonker 88 and luckily it was odd hour so we didn't have to Q and managed to find a table.

We had durian chendol each. I couldn't really taste or find durian. My husband said he tasted some (oh well, just my luck). The green long things were quite nice and soft but the whole chendol itself was nothing special.

The place was clean and they clear the tables quite fast.

“Another Overrated Place!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The foods here are so highly overrated. The Baba laksa is nothing close to good. Cendol are just soso. 8 precious ice mix is yucksssss compare to the others I had before. If u wanna try something authentic and good in Melaka go Donald & Lily.
