    Tourists love this. Locals love it even more. Have a bowl. Or two. And have fun jostling with the crowd.

    This is my second time coming back to this place.However, the quality has dropped.The Malacca sugar doesn't taste as good as before. Probably because it has been commercialized. Very disappointed :(

    Very very disappointed with the quality, Not made with pure rice flour like the older days, chendol shouldn't be jelly-like transparent! Also very thin, unlike the old fat chendol. I'm from Penang.

    Cendol can be ordered from the stall outside to be delivered into Joo Hooi Coffeeshop. Just pay a minimal surcharge and u can enjoy it sitting down. Very long queue.

    Go try the one with the orange bowl cendol! I tried both but i still prefer the cendol's of their opposite stall.

    Nothing can go wrong with a bowl of Penang laksa with cendol at the side.

  • Emmanuel J.

    Cendol can't get any better than this. One portion may not be enough if you're super craving for Cendol. They also have to-go cup (like bubble tea cup)

  • ZhaoZhao T.

    Not bad😜👏

    ZhaoZhao Tee · July 19
  • Yarn L.

    Nothing better on a hot sweltering day than an ice cold bowl of chendol. There are now seats at the green shophouse (uncle will direct you there) but standing by the roadside to eat has more feel!

    Yarn Lam · July 1
  • Farah A.

    It worth a try eventhough you have to queue

    Farah Azizi · June 25
  • Paul S.

    The chendul is really good. Especially during a hot day, it's something to quench your thirst!

  • Emily T.

    For Dessert...

  • Yan-Yew T.

    Don't mistake Mr Tans competitor across the road, you can tell, there is no Q, and, is 10sen cheaper. Once you buy your chendol, just walk down a few shoplots to his shop, air conditioned no xtra $.

    The chendol really gave a superb cooling effect.. Kuah rojak was not that hot so don't worry if you're not a fan of chilly..

    May buy and sit inside a corner shop further down a bit without charges. The small corner shop selling laksa and rojak and a lot of photos on wall.May try their laksa but not their rojak (expensive!).

  • Nur Amni A.

    It was really good & so was the laksa. If you come at a non peak time, u might be lucky enough to get a seat at their store. The cendol costs rm2.50, while the laksa costs rm4.

  • Janice F.

    Pei Jin · March 7
  • PeiWen S.

    Cendol never disappoints. Gula Melaka is thick and fragrant. Worth the queue under the hot sun.

    PeiWen Seow · March 2
  • David L.

    Cendol, of course.

    David Lee · February 17
  • The Hungry Doc

    There are seats available if u walk further down from the stall. Hands down the best chendul I've tried.

    The Hungry Doc · February 9
  • spaceseeker

    Do not try the char kuey teow in the shop. Expensive and you can get something nicer elsewhere.
