Interestingly too, the term “jendol” itself is a word for swollen, bulge, or a bump in the local languages of the Indonesian, Javanese and Sundanese.
The pandan leaves itself too could be included in the preparation of this dessert, to lend that pleasantly natural aroma to the bowl of dessert.
Now, onto the highlight of this post, the discovery of an existing popular gem in the heart of the town of Lunas, Kulim.
Best Cendol in Kulim: Cendol Istimewa
Little did we know that there is another gem hidden all the way up north; in the humble dainty town of Kulim, now on the rise with the settlement of industrialization on its land since almost a decade ago.
(I am sorry that I am such a picky eater, read that blog name).
They are open for only two hours daily (previously in the original and first stall); for their cendol sells faster than hot cakes out of the oven.
Now they are open daily, except on Mondays
Operating Hours: Not stated on the time they open (TBD), but they should be there by 12 noon and until 6.30pm
Per Bowl: MYR2.00
Takeaway in packet: MYR2.50
Serving in cup with spoon: MYR2.20
They do sell some snacks such as the Cucur Udang (fried prawn fritters) which could go fairly well with the icy cold dessert.
I did not get to try this out, so I can't comment much.
