Chinatown Cendol at Petaling Street, KL (Pork free)

If you guys are in the Petaling Street area and fancy having some cendol, you can now have them at Chinatown Cendol. It is strategically located near the popular cafes along Jalan Sultan and Jalan Petaling. For instance, if you are hanging out at REXKL or any eateries along that row of shops, all you have to do is walk towards the end where Vintage 1988 cafe is and continue walking around the corner, soon enough, you’d see Chinatown Cendol. The eatery is a few doors away from the entrance into Chinatown.

What I liked about Chinatown Cendol: Firstly, it is strategically located to me. Seeing that I work nearby, I now have an eatery near me that serves one of my favorite local desserts. Secondly, Chinatown Cendol operates till late at night. On Fridays and Saturday especially, they open till 1 am, while other days till 11 pm. Thirdly, they offer different types of Cendol – Cendol Pulut Hitam, Cendol Durian, Cendol Taro and Cendol Ice Cream.

The eatery has a small setup, it certainly cannot accommodate a large crowd but fortunately, people move in and out here pretty fast. There were about 6 tables inside and 2 outside.

Here, you skim through the menu and order at the counter. Method of payment was cash and QRPay. Unfortunately, during our time of visit, their QRPay was not working. We did not have sufficient cash with us either. Luckily, they allowed for online bank transfer.


Cendol Pulut Hitam (Large), RM 12

As mentioned above, they offer several types of cendol here, of which we went for Cendol Pulut Hitam. Sizewise, they offer 2 choices – Medium and Large. We went for large as we were sharing it between the two of us. We also added on an extra serving of pulut hitam for RM 2.

On a hot day especially, this is a refreshing dessert, especially, at night after dinner. The cendol was good despite the Gula Melaka being milder than I would have liked, not as ‘kaw’. The rest of the items – corn, red bean and green jelly was a good portion size.

While the cendol here isn’t the best in KL, it isn’t bad at all. I’ll likely be back here sometime soon to give their Durian Cendol a try. I am looking forward to it.

Address: 26, Jalan Sultan, City Centre, Kuala Lumpur.

Opening hours: Mon-Thurs, Sun, 11am – 11 pm. Fri & Sat, 11am-1am
