Used to bright sunshine and searing heat, Malaysians have long ago come to appreciate the value of a good, cold dessert. And on a blazing hot afternoon, few would pass up the chance to stop by a familiar street corner to indulge in what has virtually become a national pastime: enjoying a bowl of delicious, icy cendol. THE average Malaysian person has several distinguishable traits, which include a nose for a bargain; greeting any acquaintance with the phrase "Have you eaten?", and ultimately, a deep-rooted love for good food.
A heady mix of mung beans, pandan, rice flour, coconut milk, sugar and topped off with shaved ice, this dessert has become a staple of the Klang Vallet's street corners, where the peddler’s cendol and rojak truck is now a familiar sight.
