Aunty Koh Best Cendol @ Bukit Rambai, Melaka

Before you head to Aunty Koh‘s cendol stall, do know that you are in for the richest and creamiest cendol ever and the rest might just not be good enough anymore. The downside to this delicious cendol is the time and effort required to look for it, which is especially true for non-locals. It is hidden in a small kampung called Bukit Rambai located far away from the town. Although it is a long drive, the scenic beach and paddy fields made the journey pleasant enough.


I am not kidding when I say the place is tricky to find, just look at this lonely road in front of the stall. So do yourself a favor and get a GPS if possible. Aunty Koh’s stall is nothing but a simple attap shop located in front of which I assume is her house. And I believe she is only doing this small business out of interest. Reason being, she only opens during the weekend for a short period of time in the afternoon. For people who want to rake in the cash, this won’t be the case at all.


Unlike other cendol in Melaka that relies heavily on sweet Gula Melaka for the distinctive taste, Aunty Koh emphasizes on coconut milk instead. What you will get here is the milkiest cendol with the purest coconut milk taste. This, in my book is the BEST cendol ever.


Besides cendol, Tai Bak is also sold here. This fast disappearing Nyonya dessert is quite similar to the Chinese ‘tang yuan’ but comes in long shredded slices instead. While this is not as delicious (and not so enticing) as the cendol, the taste and rarity are reasons enough to warrant at least a try. It is not expensive too, just over a Ringgit for each bowl. The clear syrup has a subtle sweetness with a nice pandan aroma, making it a clear contrast to the heavy tasting cendol.


By the way, Aunty Koh works alone so do expect a lot of self-service here – even cleaning up yourself (the bowls and spoons) Anyway, I have no qualms about that. In fact it adds to the overall experience if you ask me.


Huge parking space here. Free, if you are wondering.


Aunty Koh cendol is open during weekends only around 12-1pm till finish. From what I heard if you are there after 2pm, you are most likely too late. So, plan your time properly to avoid any disappointments.

    so hard to find tai bak these days.
    the cendol reminds me of the ones made by Muar Restaurant in Tengkat Tong Shin. simple with just the right amount of santan and real gula melaka.

    haha I love cendol ;D but so far I can’t tell one stall from another as they are very similar in taste. Shall have to look for this one by Aunty Koh. Noticed a Singapore car in your picture… This person sure knows his food ;P Thanks for sharing.

    I key in the gps cord in my google map but returned nothing. So ended up didn’t go. Should have tried the cords on a pc, which shows: Jalan Batang Tiga; between Jalan Tanjung Minyak and Jalan Solok Sidang Haji Wahab

    The location is Bukit Rambai, Batu 6-3/4 ,Melaka between Bukit Rambai Malay Primary School and a Chinese temple called Datok Kayu Ara in Malay or Tua Pek Kong in Chinese. May be you should try key in your GPS Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Bukit Rambai?Everthing Aunty Koh does is handmade or manual,that’s why cannot do on a big commercial scale.The cendol is made from the pandan leaves bushes and the santan is from her coconut trees next to her stall, everything is from her backyard.The Gula Melaka is the pure Melaka Gula Tuak. Being a Nyonya, her standard is very high,no compromise of ingredients and freshness.
    She definitely does it out of passion,she doesn’t really need the money. She got her pension and plantations to support her comfortably.
    Try it , you don’t know what you are missing.

    I live nearby (walking distance) and also distant relative of hers. A few years back, I can still taste her creamy Cendol but not anymore these days. She opens now by 11am and KL, Spore cars n even tour buses flock her place. So what I did is, buy the Cendol from her brother, Koh Kim Bok (Google his name, he is famous too) and make my own cendol. :D

    Tried the cendol just now……… Mmmmm……..above average only.
    A little costly for a small bowl of cendol without the red beans and groundnuts.
    Frankly, there’s other better taste cendol around in Melaka.

    The one at Kee Ann road and the Stadthuys taste much better in my opinion.
    After all, it depends on individual taste buds, as you may find it acceptable.

    Happy tasting.
