Best Cendol in PJ

Written by Updated ago

The original cendol from Indonesia was first served without ice as ice was difficult to get during the earlier years. Eventually, cendol became so popular in Southeast Asia especially in Malaysia’s Penang, Malacca and Kuala Lumpur because we were able to acquire ice from the British. Today, cendol is one of Malaysia’s heritage food and Malaysian cendol has pretty much separated itself with our own heritage recipes. We have sought out some of Petaling Jaya’s best cendols.

    Cendol & Rojak MustaffaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    This neighbourhood roadside truck-stall has grown in popularity passing its PJ radius over the years. Famous for both cendol and rojak, Mustaffa’s cendol has been described by many as “fine, generous and affordable”. With its finely shaved ice, generous amount of ingredients and affordable price, it is no wonder patrons have found themselves lining up and consuming their icy treats even under a scorching sun and limited seats. Who cares about sweating bullets or having backaches from standing when you get to enjoy a delicious delicate bowl of refreshing dessert, right?
    Tips

    Bring an umbrella if the weather is gloomy or sunny as there is no shelter.

    Things to expect

    A memorable gula melaka.

    Best with

    Rojak, of course

    Price

    RM3.00 to RM4.00

    This truck is usually stationed near Sea Park’s wet market. While most customers purchase to-go, there are a couple of tables and chairs for those who opt for a quick dine-in. The crowd is usually busy from morning till late afternoon. The ice in Hasan’s cendol appears more flaky and snowflake-like. Just like the other cendols in this list, this stall has its own array of loyal customers who would easily preach that Hasan’s has the “best cendol in PJ”.

    The ever famous 70-year-old teochew cendol from Penang has reached Petaling Jaya with its branch in Paradigm Mall, Kelana Jaya. This cendol didn’t make it all the way here from its small and humble roadside stall in Penang for no reason. This Teochew cendol is definitely one to remember especially if you have tried the Original one in Penang! Locals can now finally rejoice from not having to drive four hours up North just to get their hands on this delicious bowl of goodness. The founding family promises all cendols are made daily with fresh ingredients to ensure that every bowl of its secret recipe is made to perfection
    Tips

    Visit on weekdays to avoid typical large mall crowds.

    This little stall in one of the oldest Petaling Jaya food courts is run by an old auntie who has pretty much perfected her Cendol and Ais Kacang for twenty years. Many locals have labelled her No.46 stall in Taman Selera as the “best” cendol and ais kacang in town. Famous for her apparently out-of-this-world Gula Melaka (in which even some Malaccans have claimed that her cendol is better than those in Malacca itself), her ice desserts are served with finely shaved ice that delicately melts on your tongue. Ask anyone who love Weng Kee’s cendol and he/she would tell you that the secret lies in the Gula Melaka and shaved ice.
    Tips

    Can be served in either a bowl or glass.

    Things to expect

    A specially homemade Gula Melaka that you can’t get anywhere else

    Best with

    Their equally famous Ais Kacang.

    Here at Little Mums by Mum’s Place, you can cool down from a hot sunny day with their best seller Cendol with Red beans. Not like any other cendol, this one has just the right amount of sweetness to it. When it comes to cendol, it’s very crucial to add in fresh coconut milk into the dessert, and that is exactly what they did. The quantity of coconut milk poured in the cendol is perfectly measured. Not to forget the red beans that alter the flavour of the dessert wholly. Creamy, sweet, and all the right savour you are looking for in a cendol can be tasted in this heavenly bowl of dessert.

    Tips

    Come early or make early reservation. This place is packed during lunch hour.

    Things to expect

    An authentic Malaysian restaurant that serves Nyonya-styled cuisine.

    Nyonya ColoursPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    If you are a citygoer, you will be no stranger to this home grown cafe that has been significant in both Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya’s central shopping malls. The hype for Nyonya Colors began almost as soon as the first outlet was established in 2006. Nyonya Colors is not only certified halal but also made without preservatives. Hygiene is also emphasized whereby each kueh is wrapped individually to ensure utmost cleanliness. While Nyonya Colors is particularly known for its traditional homemade kueh, their cendol is equally delightful with fragrant coconut milk and tasteful gula melaka! Today, the café has become one of the most trusted venues for authentic Peranakan cuisine in the Malaysian market.

    This cendol/rojak truck has been around for many years and is parked in front of Brother Peter car workshop (same row as Wondermilk). The cendol here is not only very affordable but also pleasant to our palates with its light but not underwhelming gula melaka and coconut milk. The shaved ice is coarse but under the Malaysian heat, I don’t find that to be a problem as it is refreshing and melts just as quickly as it is served. Therefore, it is best consumed immediately.
    Tips

    The truck is especially near the Mosque, so avoid prayer hours as the area can get extremely packed with cars parked all over.

    Things to expect

    A smaller bowl of quick cendol fix.

    This stall-truck has been in the neighbourhood between Kelana Jaya and Taman Megah off LDP highway for many years and is always, if not almost always packed with patrons. There are limited seats with only a couple of tables; therefore, it is not an uncommon sight to see foodies consuming their treats on two feet. Most patrons are locals from the neighbourhood as the truck is just walking distance from several neighbourhoods in Kelana Jaya, Taman Mayang and Taman Megah. However, there are also many whom deliberately stop by the roadside and illegally park their cars nearby just to get a taste of the cendol that has been dubbed as fragrant and refreshing.
    Tips

    Park along SS25/2 (Marco’s Pizza row) if you don’t want to park illegally.

    Things to expect

    Cincau in your cendol!

    Founder, En. Wahab Ibrahim first started making cendols in Lumut by the roadside almost 20 years ago. As published by The Star, he was an apprentice for a renowned cendol maker whom eventually left back to India and thus, En. Wahab took over the stall. In 2006, after positive feedbacks and opinions from customers, friends and family, he decided to expand his business and opened his first cendol kiosk in Sitiawan. Since then, he has expanded across state borders and Mr. Cendol has reached Petaling Jaya! Mr. Cendol’s sweets are made with zero preservatives and fresh ingredients. These cendols are especially significant for its cendol strips which are cooked for over an hour with fresh pandan leaves and pucuk manis.

Shipping only Gula Melaka specifically from Melaka, your Cendol will taste like no other in KL. Topped generously with fresh ingredients, you will not have your eyes off the dish until you’ve finished it, seconds perhaps?

    The cendol served at Cili 8 delivers on the presentation front. The ice forms a mountain that pops out of the coconut milk and palm sugar mix. Atop this mountain lies streaks of gelatinous pandan and red beans. An interesting thing to note is that the cendol is fairly light. The palm sugar does not overwhelm the coconut milk and the ice does a good job of keeping the heaviness of the dessert down. There are also a lot of different textures to be had with the crushed ice and the soft red bean together with the pandan streaks, which further elevates the dish.

    Tips

    Make sure to eat quickly before the ice melts away

    Things to expect

    More palm sugar can be added if desired
