“My virgin cendol experience leaves me wanting more!”

Description: Finally discovered the elusive Good Cendol!
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

My mother is a fussy eater, dislikes sweet desserts but went back 5 times over the weekend after the virgin visit on Friday, to find that this place was closed. We were not lucky enough to have our bellies filled with excellent cendol before heading back home! My mother was terribly disappointed.

We had just arrived in Melaka and stumble upon this place after getting lost finding our way from the hotel to Jonke Walk. It's located by the Melaka River and a nice pit stop by the river to enjoy the view (minus the smell of the river, it was terrible) with a bowl of cendol.

The greenish stuff was made from pandan apparently and the gula Melaka was so sweet and rich, I felt like I was going to die from diabetes immediately. It was extremely delicious. This icy bowl of goodness is home made apparently, recommended by the chirpy happy friendly owner.

I will be back!!

I hope people will visit this place, it's awesome!

Lao San Cafe was our last stop before heading back to Singapore.
Our search for the elusive good Cendol ended at Lao San.
Delicious hand made Cendol that is unlike the mass produced version at Jonker88.
This dish is made with love.
Fragrant Pandan fills your mouth with every mouthful.

The chirpy lady who served us was definitely a bonus!
Dessert that's made and served with love, a must do in Melaka!
