The Penang Cendol is a Penang Nyonya sweet broth. Cendol itself is found throughout Malaysia and Indonesia, as well as Thailand and Singapore. In Penang, it is also often spelled chendul.

The Teochew and Nyonya people have also adopted it and created their own version. In Malaysia, cendol is particularly popular in Penang and Malacca.

In Penang there are two very famous cendol stalls on either sides of Keng Kwee Street off Penang Road. The Penang Road Famous Chendol Stall occupies the north side of the street while the Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul Stall occupies the south side, beside Joo Hooi Cafe.

Cendol (24 May, 2008)

The namesake cendol are short starch noodles traditionally colored with pandan leaves. Nowadays artificial coloring is used. Other ingredients of the Teochew cendol of Penang include coconut milk, palm sugar (gula melaka), red beans and grated ice. In other parts of Malaysia, glutinous rice is also added.

The most popular cendol stalls are the two along Keng Kwee Street off Penang Road. From Penang Road, on the left side is the Penang Road Famous Chendul stall. On the right side is the Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul stall. Which of the two is the best? Let me put it this way: one of the stalls has a lot of people visiting it. Most of these are out-of-towners. This stall is popular with people from outside Penang because it is more aggressive in opening branches.

The other stall has fewer customers, it doesn't open chains of branches, but it is the one favoured by locals. In my opinion, this is the stall with the best cendol in Penang. Which stall am I talking about? Go there and judge with your eyes.
