Cendul is made out of  finely shaved ice, red beans, aromatic palm sugar syrup, rich coconut milk and soft green rice flour noodle made from mixing rice flour and the juice of  fragrant pandan leaves.

The palm sugar has a distinct sweetness with a delicate bitter long finish that complements the creamy coconut milk while the soft, silky cendol noodles don’t turn brittle in the icy bowl.
