Traveling to Bukit Mertajam one of the places that should not be missed is The New Cendol House.
This shop has been around for decades, my last visit to this shop is almost 10 years then.
However, this place still in one of my to visit list when I am at Bukit Mertajam.
The dishes and desserts here are slight different compare to Penang’s style. The Cendol here is served with a plate below while the coconut milk is overwhelm the bowl while dripping off and the Gula Melaka is thick and flavorful. There is a glutinous rice cake in the cendol that made this dish special. In fact, the ice kacang here also served with cendol which makes this unique compare to usual.
The Laksa cooked here also not like the usual style where the soup is not that thick and the base is sourish and the color is a bit yellowish which seems like added with some turmeric.
New Cendol House, a place to try out the something unique.
