Chendol or Cendol is an iced sweet dessert that contains droplets of worm-like green rice flour jelly, coconut milk and palm sugar syrup. It is commonly found in Southeast Asia including Indonesia and Singapore. It reminded me of my childhood when my mother used to make her own cendol, with pandan for natural flavouring and daun suji for natural green colour commonly used in Indonesia. In Indonesia, they sometimes add jackfruit and sometimes tape (fermented cassava) into it. This stall located at Old Airport Road Hawker Centre serves classic one, one with red bean and the one with XO durian purée. Greedy me asked if i can have added red bean to the durian one. She said: sure, it will be $3.50! Perfecto! I asked for another spoon of coconut milk, which i was happy about. I really like the fact that the texture of the cendol itself are soft (which i prefer) as sometimes it could be too starchy and hard. And they are not neon green which i sometimes cringe of and stay away from! And for a durian addict like me, the fact that it has durian, yes.. absolutely recommended!
