    Of course we had to be stereotypical and include the infamous Jonker 88 into this list. Not only are the desserts here (Cendol included) good enough to be recommended but one should also experience the state's most famous location. Be sure to bring your friends along if they haven't gotten a taste of these icy treats!

    Aunty Koh's cendol has been highly acclaimed to be the best amongst the best. Google's top result for the best cendol in Malacca is Aunty Koh's. It is not that we are mainstream but seriously though, Aunty Koh's cendol... She plucks her own pandan leaves, pounds and hand squeezes the juices out of the greens and coconut flesh for santan by herself at 3AM on operating days. To agonize that craving even more, the stall sells out in less than two hours upon opening! Dang. Get ready to rumble if you want a taste of that goodness!

    Located by the Great River, Lao San is the perfect spot to indulge in a mood-enlightening bowl of refreshing cendol with a view. The homemade cendol here is made au-naturale with lots of love. Flavours are light but pack a punch upon every spoonful. The cafe also serves authentic Hainanese food and the lady owner has  been dubbed to be cheerful and greets every customer with a warm welcome. Needless to say, that reputable feeling that she gives off also transfers onto her cendol which is perhaps why it is delicious.

    East & West Rendezvous Cafe gained its well deserved fame from the simple yet authentic cendol (amongst others). That just goes to show how simplicity thrives when it comes down to bona fides and tradition . A yummy bowl incorporates a mountain of finely shaved ice, essential pandan noodles, sago and fresh red beans drenched in sweet-smelling gula melaka and mouth-watering santan. Prices are very reasonable too!

    Another Nyonya house, Cottage Spices is the perfect spot for a real taste of Malacca. Patrons particularly love the hot kitchen food here but let's cut to the chase. Right now, all we care about is the cendol. That being said, the cendol here is a breeze to our senses. Although portion size had been criticized by some netizens for being inconsistent (and small), taste is brilliant! Every component is authentic and made from scratch and thus gives you all the flavours that can only be achieved from raw hands.

    Simple, cold and refreshing. Strait's Cendol Melaka is a humble stall that offers quite a stunning bowl of cendol. Run by a few young men, you can expect a really friendly and hip service, as they shave those icy blocks down into something fine and smooth. Filled with lovely jelly, as well as kidney beans and corn, followed by a good amount of finely shaved ice and finished with a glug of cendol drink and gula melaka. The result is an incredibly refreshing, light and slightly sweet bowl of dessert that will cool you off a hot day.

    Clock Tower Cendol

    Clock Tower Cendol, as you might guessed it, is located right next to a clock tower. It is also one of the most famous cendol stalls in Melaka, operating is 1952, which is over 6 decades! That's heck of a long time and certainly, there's a secret to their longevity. As you'll expect, there will always be a line and the only time there isn't any, is when they are closed. The cendol is more liquid compared to others while the sweetness is fairly evident. But in short, it's a nice bowl of cendol to indulge in. 

    Tips

    Come early and bring an umbrella.

    Things to expect

    A long queue as well as a good variety of cendol.

    As cendol is one of the few central dishes of Peranakan roots, of course an acclaimed Nyonya restaurant MUST have an equally praise-worthy cendol. That's Nyonya Makko for us all. Cendol here is straight-forward, simple and honest which is why it is much appreciated. With all the classic elements, Nyonya Makko scores high on our charts!

    Loved and recognized by even the Peranakans themselves, Aunty Lee has been serving authentic Baba Nyonya cuisine since 1996. When Uncle and Aunty Lee first started their business, they never imagined that their little restaurant could be this much of a prominence in Malacca. Many have since loved the humble couple's restaurant as the food is hearty, wholesome and genuine. Till today, Aunty Lee is the chef and cooks every dish one by one and heart to heart. The cendol here is like the flawless icing to a Michelin starred cupcake.

    Christina Ee Cendol is another really popular place to quench your thirst as well as to cool your internal temperature from the scorching heat of Melaka. First thing you'll notice is the amount of jelly placed on top, followed by the glistening gula melaka, coconut milk and semi-fine shaved ice below. For those who don't enjoy liquid-cendol as much, this would be the perfect choice as the ice is able to hold its shape for prolonged period of time, ensuring that every bite is a cool and icy one.

    Justberrys Dessert House


    Home to a multitude of desserts, Justberrys Dessert House is another casual cafe that offers a truly extensive range of dessert. Among all that lies a humble serving of cendol, which is filled quite generously with green wormy jelly, kidney beans, lots of gula melaka as well as coconut and finely shaved ice. Though the cendol does not match up to their range of beautifully crafted desserts, it still does deliver in flavour, and is more than enough to satisfy that craving of yours. The place is also really colourful, which makes it fun to be in.

    Can't decide between ice kacang or cendol? Well, why not both? After all, they are absolutely delightful here at mamak Thamby Abdullah. It's a fairly long name for a humble stall, but quite fortunately, they do serve really good, icy and cold dessert. The cendol of course, is the humbler of the both as it comes with a good serving of jelly, kidney beans, gula melaka, coconut milk and finely shaved ice. It does melt quite quickly and is rather watery from the start, so it's best for those who enjoys drinking cendol.
