Most customers would just stand around the stall eating the cendol whereas some would opt to sit in the coffee shop nearby.
Besides Cendol, you can make a request for their colourful iceball. It is seldom seen nowadays and was once a very favourable item and loved by many children. It does bring back old memories when I remembered buying this type of iceball (at only RM0.10 cents) after school hours. It was fun then holding the cold iceball with my bare hands.
The lady will accommodate the order provide she is not too busy. It does take some skill to make the iceball. She has to make sure the shaved ice are pack tightly together to ensure that the ball does not fall apart. It can be quite cold on the hands when doing so. Hop on over to Cokeworld Citizen to watch a video clip of the making process.
One such iceball doused with sarsi and red sugar syrup cost RM0.80. I am happy to have found the iceball, and definitely bringing my son to try it. Click here for the Map Location.
