A few blocks from Azmie Wawa is Chendol House on a secluded corner. It actually looks like an atap house, so naturally it's quite cooling inside! Their Cendol Kacang uses the big long red bean, added with fresh coconut milk, mix together to bring you a cooling sensation. HAHA! If you like something more flavourful, also check out their Cendol Special (RM2.50)!

Md. Zain's cendol is said to be one of the more special ones. A look inside their menu will amaze you on the different ways Cendol can be eaten! Highly recommended is their Cendol Oreo! Can you imagine the taste when coconut milk is mixed with pandan and then sprinkled with Oreo flakes? A special note of this stall is that glutinous rice is added into the cendol to give a chewy texture to it.

Another dessert spot in Taman Suria--Sofie Cendol. Just look around Jalan Suria 11 for a white tent and you'll find this place! Do try out their Cendol Pulut under the shade of the tent. This signature cendol adds in pulut (glutinous rice), however, you can request without the pulut as well if you're not a fan of it. But what will really amaze you is their Cendol Durian! Definitely something unique!
