by Arslan Z. on Thu, April 19, 2018

Started out as a humble pushcart in Sungai Petani, Kedah almost 40 years ago, Khan Cendol now has become a big part of a Melawatian’s everyday life. Still served traditionally in a metal bowl, this extra cold, sweet, sweet cendol is the ultimate thirst-quencher.

Mr.Khan and his siblings started their Cendol business in Sungai Petani, Kedah and had a good following there. After he got married, Mr. Khan decided to move to Kuala Lumpur and started serving up his handmade bowl of snowy cendol goodness in Melawati. Oh you lucky, lucky people!

Cendol Kacang Merah, one of Khan Cendol's signature cendol.

I have been going to Khan Cendol since I was 4 years old, at least once a month. It’s the perfect thing to have especially if you’ve been out all day in the hot KL sun. One thing I love about his Cendol is that he serves it in a metal bowl with a metal spoon which makes it a million times better because it keeps the small tiny ice flakes from melting too quickly.

Khan Cendol is pretty basic. There’s nothing fancy about the cendol except the flavours maintain the same and Mr. Khan has been very consistent about the process of making his cendol. He cleans and presses the coconut himself daily to get the best and most lemak santan from his cendol. The cendol noodles also is handmade by him, no artificial flavours or colouring here, only the good stuff which is pure pandan extract for the colour and rice and wheat flour for the noodle itself.

Look at how smooth the gula melaka is.

With all of that love and effort combined, It’s no surprise why Mr. Khan churns out some of the best cendol in KL. It’s smooth, sweet and just enough lemak from the santan to make you crave for it more. So if you’re still on the hunt for that good cendol then Khan Cendol should definitely be one of your stops.

Gotta have that Cendol Durian.
