Nyonya Valley Restaurant @ CyberView Garden, Cyberjaya

Nyonya Valley is one of the better restaurants to eat at Cyberjaya and it has become one of our ‘to-go’ places. Their halal menu is extensive enough to cover either small or large dining groups, which is why Nyonya Valley is also an ideal restaurant for companies to have team lunch. The price is also fair for Cyberjaya standards – think chain Kopitiam’s prices but with slightly larger portion and better ingredients.

Nyonya-Curry-Laksa

Nyonya Curry Laksa @ RM10.90 + Durian Cendol @ RM6.90 are my usual order here. But do note that the Nyonya Curry Laksa here should not be compared the Melaka type since it is actually more like a more lemak-ish curry mee. The toppings (chicken strips, prawns, cockles, tofu pok) are always enjoyable especially the fresh and firm textured prawns.

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.

lonely-road

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.

cendol-gula-melaka

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.

Nyonya Cendol & Kuih @ East & West Rendezvous Cafe, Lorong Hang Jebat (Jonker Street)

Move over Jonker 88, I have found a better Durian Cendol in Melaka at East & West Rendezvous cafe. You are famous alright – buzzing with tourist customers for almost anytime of the day and there is no doubt your cendols are decent. But to endure the long queue for a bowl? It just ain’t worth my time and sweat anymore.

nyonya-durian-cendol

This is by far the best Durian Cendol I have had in Melaka and it is still relatively under-appreciated due to the fact that everyone still flocks to Jonker 88. East & West Rendezvous’ signature Nyonya Cendol has finely shaved ice that is almost fluffy and flavored with 100% Gula Melaka.
The difference is quite noticeable at the first tasting. Besides being more fragrant, its overall sweetness is just right and the dollop of real durian flesh (instead of using syrup) are very good too. So even if I try, there is nothing worth nitpicking about.

Kafe Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul @ Komtar Walk

Call me slow but I just realized the famous Penang Road Teochew Chendul has three branches already at Komtar Walk, Prangin Mall and Sunshine Farlim. What to do? I have been absent from Penang for far too long that I already lost touch with the local F&B scene. Although they do have a branch in Klang Valley at a Giant Hypermarket somewhere, honestly I wouldn’t bother because I know the taste can never match the real deal up North.

ais-kacang

As for Ais Kacang, I discovered that most KL people tend to love the Southern version more, those with stronger Gula Melaka taste and totally void of Sarsi flavor. Well I have stayed at both places long enough to develop a passion for both versions. But, if I had to choose, it will be the Penang Ais Kacang without skipping a heartbeat. I just love the refreshing taste that Sarsi syrup gives and not to mention the extra colorful ingredients in it too.
