Cendol Geylang Serai

1 Geylang Serai #02-107, Geylang Serai Mkt & Food Ctr (Map) 8.30am to 6pm Daily

This is a specialty stall in the area and there is a short, fast and consistent line of customers. Two huge speakers blast out latest hits and a big sign “No Red Beans” stares at you up f ront and centre of the stall. This is the original version with soft shaved ice, so don’t harass them for “strange” extra toppings like attap chee or palm fruit. The jelly is pale green and has a soft luscious texture wiht hints of pandan and again the balance of the rich coconut milk and palm sugar sweetness is very well tempered to suit an evolved local palate .

Four Seasons Ching Teng

For a little chain, this stall does it quite consistently well as their operations is very well thought-out. The ingredients, including white fungus, sugared melon strips, pang tai hai (black malva nut), dried longan, etc. are served with crushed not shaved ice. This gives it little crunchy cold notes when you take a mouthful in during a hot day. The rock sugar used lends a smooth and light sweetness to it and the product is quite consistent throughout almost every stall we tried. Check out their website for more details and other locations.
