In Singapore, if asked to name traditional desserts that we love, Chendol would not be something that is missing from the long list. Popular especially in Asia, the Chendol is usually eaten as dessert or a snack with many people slurping up the fragrant rice flour, sweet gula melaka syrup and coconut milk on shaved ice.

But with its high calories, having it every day isn’t exactly a doctor’s recommendation–so here are some of the best chendols in Singapore that are worth your calories!

Known for its very affordable price of $1 per bowl, the stall serves up quality Chendol where the lady boss, Helen, is so particular about the gula melaka that she’ll drive to Malacca to buy the best one before bringing it back home.

Though the shapes of the rice flour jelly are odd and asymmetrical, they simply tell you one thing- homemade. With subtle pandan flavour, quality coconut milk and roasted gula melaka syrup, this bowl of Chendol is bound to make you go “mmm”!

Oh, not forgetting the durian flavour: a made-in-heaven combination!

More of a drink than a dessert, this stall serves up the Chendol in another style. Though similar in the essential ingredients, it’s certainly interesting to try the traditional dessert in another way.

After all, we’ve got people drinking laksa with a straw as well, eh?

Do you know that in Jurong Point, it’s not just “Little Hong Kong” or “Little Korea” there? Tucked on level 3 is a hidden food court that sells just Malaysia food–also known fondly as Malaysia Boleh!

Located in the mall’s food centre, the person in charge of the Chendol stall, Mary, is born and bred in Penang, so you know you’ll surely get a good ol’ serving of Penang style Chendol. 

Ah Hock loved Michelle and asked her, ‘Ai stead mai?’ in the 90s. Today, he tried again but would it work? Prepare some tissue paper and watch their love story here:
