Cendol - Lebuh Presgrave, Penang

My friend Sam brought me to this nice cendol place located near the intersection of Lebuh Presgrave and Lebuh Mcnair.

You can see immediately that the cendol noodle is almost jelly-like and translucent.

Now compare it to the cendol noodle at Penang Road Lebuh Keng Kwee Teochew cendol., which is not so translucent and not jelly-like.

The cendol was also very very lemak i.e full of fresh coconut milk (santan). However, this also meant the gula melaka (palm sugar) fragrance was somehow slightly overshadowed.
