March 2011: Melaka Trip – Pinkberrys Cendol, Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall

Cerventus, the Malaccan boy himself claims that this is the BEST ABC and Cendol in Melaka. Way better than Jonker St’s or anywhere else, he had said.

I was surprised. Shouldn’t the hawker, coffee shops versions be holding such an accolade? Instead, it’s kiosk in a shopping mall that’s holding the honour. Anyhow, I’m not one to argue with a Malaccan born & bred boy. And since I’m a critical dessert fan myself, I was looking forward to pass my own verdict on his claim.

Cendol is a traditional Malaysian dessert. Put red beans & green pandan flavored jellies in a bowl, top with a scoop of shaved ice, then pour coconut milk and palm sugar syrup over the top.

I love mine with a dollop of durian on top. Here at Pinkberrys, my bowl of durian chendol was a mound of smooth, soft & fine shaven ice drizzled with the sweetest, thick & aromatic palm sugar . The coconut milk was creamy and undiluted. Perfectly flavoured too, not too salty nor sweet.

There wasn’t a lot of it, but the coconut milk & palm sugar was thick & strong. You won’t get a bowl of watery chendol with lots of coconut milk as the prepartion here is slightly different. The ice was doused with just enough coconut milk for the whole bowl.

There isn’t any tables or chairs provided, so enjoy your icy bowl of dessert sitting by the fountain here.

Prices are reasonable too!

Other than the Chendol, there were the popular fruity “loh”; mango, honeydew and so on.

Good tip, thanks!! I really don’t think much of Jonker St’s cendol to be honest, so welcome any contender! Wouldn’t have gone anywhere near this otherwise, given that standard mall kiosk look.

I wouldn’t step into any malls! Which goes to show, sometimes the best culinary finds are the unexpected ones!
