Kick Ass Ice Chendol [Living in Singapore]

In Singapore, ice desserts are part of the spectacular cuisine.

And given how hot it can be, this is not surprising.

One of the more traditional desserts is something called “Ice Chendol”.

From Wikipedia:

The dessert’s basic ingredients consist of coconut milk, noodles with green food coloring (usually derived from the pandan leaf), and palm sugarRed beansglutinous ricegrass jellycreamed corn, and shaved ice are also included.

The affluence of Singapore, as well as Western influence, has given rise to different variations of cendol. One can occasionally come across variants such as cendol with vanilla ice-cream or cendol topped with durian.

The best place to get Chendol is in Malacca (aka Malaka), but in Singapore, our favourite place is Jin Jin Hot / Cold Desserts.

Try them at:

    I will have Melacca chendol please. You can take me when we come visit, thanks.

    As an aside, this place wasn’t the one we got our “not even remotely like chendol” from was it?

    Yes this was the place – they gave us the wrong desserts, I think. This time I made Ray order!
