The weather has been turning rather warm and humid lately. For those staying in the West and want to cool the body down from the heat, I would recommend Makan Melaka at Jurong West Street 41 for a good bowl of chendol.
What makes Makan Melaka's chendol stands out from most places is the freshly made chendol and gula melaka specially brought in from Malacca fortnightly instead of using syrup. It also uses freshly squeezed coconut milk from a supplier to make their chendol.
Makan Melaka offers a variety of chendol with different toppings starting from the Traditional Chendol Melaka ($1.50). On the menu, there are Chendol Melaka with Red Bean, Corn or Glutinous Rice ($1.80 each).
Chendol Melaka with Corn and Red Bean 4.2/5
On top of the tradtional chendol melaka, I also ordered the Chendol Melaka with Corn and Red Bean ($2.10). The chendol has a nice bite to it with hint of pandan flavour. I like the fact that the dessert is not overly sweet, with the fresh coconut milk and gula melaka working harmoniously for a well balanced finish. I prefer the addition of the red bean and corn for a lifted enjoyment.
