Chendol, one of my favourite Asian desserts and the best ones are found in Melaka. I’ve heard so much about Jonker 88 chendol so it’s a must try. Well, it’s huge, has plenty of ingredients and comes with super thick gula melaka. Can’t put my finger to it but it’s not my kind of chendol.
We bought our first bottle of pineapple tarts after lunch at Xiang Ji Satay House. We opened and tried immediately. The pastry was crumbly and buttery, and the pineapple wasn’t too sweet. We returned to the shop and bought another bottle. The next day when we walked past the other outlet at Jonker Street, my friend went in and got another bottle. It was a pity we didn’t try the chendol. We were too full from lunch at The Baboon House.
Go for the shake. It’s refreshing, cold and creamy with just the right sweetness. The ice-cream served in the coconut husk with pieces of coconut flesh was rather bland.
