Soon as we were done having lunch at Xiang Ji we resumed our walkabout and soon found a quaint little side street stall selling 1Cendol.

1a traditional dessert of coconut milk, jelly noodles made from rice flour with green food coloring (usually derived from the pandan leaf), shaved ice and palm sugar (in this case, gula melaka). Other ingredients such as red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly, creamed corn, might also be included

I guess Cat was still hungry despite having lunch half an hour ago (or perhaps she didn't quite fancy the pork satay?) so she promptly ordered a bowl of 2Wantan Noodles while the three of us all had a bowl of Cendol.

2a Cantonese noodle dish usually served in a hot broth, garnished with leafy vegetables, and wantan (a Cantonese word for dumpling)

Unlike the sweet and sugary variant found at Longhouse 86 this stall’s Cendol was both diminutive in portion and less sickly sweet in concoction.

We all agreed that Fong Yong’s Cendol was definitely the healthier alternative, and cheaper too!
