Klang One Day Tour, Part Two – Klang Cendol

*Continue from Klang One Day Tour, Part One – B.H. Bah Kut Teh*

After the heavy morning breakfast, we dropped by AEON Bukit Tinggi (claimed as the largest AEON or Jusco store in Southeast Asia. Or was it Asia?) for a walk. We then had lunch at BBQ Plaza which uses lard to grease the grilling pan. A chain restaurant from Thailand I guess, since the ads were showing Siamese language. It wasn’t really a good lunch, though.

Calvin then brought us into Klang town for a particular shop for cendol. He said the proprietor used to sell it at the roadside on his motorcycle but it has moved into a shoplot now. It’s easily recognised with its large green Klang Cendol signboard.

As you can see here, the original cendol costs RM 1.40, with glutinuous rice or ice cream will be RM 1.90 each. However, this photo was taken 3 months back. With the current economic slowdown and raise of food price, the price might have gone up a bit. Serving portion was slightly bigger than the one in Restoran Muar.

Nothing beats slurping a cooling ais kacang or cendol on a hot afternoon. All four of us had the original cendol which has a thick, creamy coconut milk with soft but not mushy cendol, red kidney beans and sufficient gula melaka syrup. For RM 1.40, it’s certainly a small treat everyone could afford.

And that ended our brief makan trip to Klang. I’m sure I will be back again.
