Penang Street Food - Cendol

Need a break from the heat? Then you definitely have to try Cendol -  a truly refreshing dessert that offers a sweet relief from the tropical Penang heat. Cendol gets its name from the green, chewy noodle-like condiment in this popular local dessert. The cendol noodle is made from rice flour and gets its green colour from a local herb called ‘pandan’. Pandan is a very aromatic herb and is used not only to make the cendol noodle but also to add fragrance to the palm sugar syrup used to sweeten this dessert. A bowl is first filled with finely shaved ice, red beans and the syrup is poured into the bowl. Finally, the cendol is scooped into it and copius amount of fresh coconut milk is added, drowning all the condiments in a delicious pool of coconut goodness. The light, fragrant coconut milk sweetened by the palm syrup make for a truly exotic tropical dessert that hits all the right notes. A bowl of delicious cendol costs from RM1.50 to RM2.00.
