Cendol @ SS15, Subang Jaya



Nowadays the weather is haywire - super hot during the day and then in the late afternoon, heavy rain that causes chaos everywhere. Whenever the weather is this crazy, I often reach out for some icy cold comfort in a form of Indian cendol - a steal at only RM1.20 a bowl. All throughout the city, you see these vans or stalls that sell cendol together with Indian Rojak. Some are more popular than others but this one in SS15, Subang Jaya seem to always have perpetual long queues.


Long ago there were rumours flitting around that these cendol men have unusual ways to keep their cendol tasting special. One said it was a bag of earthworms inside the coconut milk while strong rumours said it was used sanitary pads. It was probably nasty rumours spread by competitors as I doubt they are true.


I didn't catch any nice pictures of the Indian Rojak man and was kinda shy to take more pictures since I was not eating any. However, I did catch these men in a row enjoying their rojak and cendol break. You sit at the ledge of the road while eating your spicy Indian rojak. That gets your sinuses working which you'll cool down with a bowl of icy cold cendol.

Boo, you really moves around yah? It brought back memories to me about this cendol and rojak stall. I used to lives in SJ and I remember curi-curi makan during my confinement. I really have a sudden craving for their Chendol and I sneaked out of the house and drove to this stall and bought a bowl of Cendol. Heavenly..... Luckily no effect yet from eating 'cold' things during the confinement. Naughty ......

elb - cool! Keep up those yummy food entries from the UK. Makes me homesick for that place.

Dragon City said...

nice cendol...but the SS17 cendol still the best. ^_^

boo_licious said...

kampungboycitygal - think those rumours are urban legends though.

chen - yes, nowadays looking for ways to cool down.

dragon city - yet to try the sec17 one. That's the famous stall which had a typhoid case once. Nowadays people don't remember as it's packed with people still.

This is good but still craves for the famous stall along Penang Road, Penang!!

boo_licious said...

tummythoz - I confess. Not eaten the one at Penang Road before but I love the Melaka type.

Oh.. I passed by these stalls before, always see people queue up for the cendol and rojak. I didn't try it b'cos of the queue :(

Yes the ss15 cendol is one of me and my wife's weekly rituals. Since we are Filipinos we got curious why there was always a long Q when we passed by it. So we drove there one day and just lined up for rojak.

The rest is cendol history. :)

Hi!

Not sure whether anyone'll read this 2 years after the initial post, but for Cendol's sake, why not right?

For fragrant, delicious and a clean-looking cendol stall, head to the entrance to Tmn Melewar in Gombak. It's right beside the main road entering the neighbourhood, opposite a small parking lot.

It's better than the ones at SS15 & Sec 17 combined!
