COOL DESSERT: ofie Cendol sells it handmade and with a wide variety of condiments
JOHOR BARU: SOFIE Cendol sells tasty homemade cendol with a variety of condiments since it opened in the city 10 years ago.
It is run by five siblings and named after one of them, Mohd Syaufi Jamhari, 29.
His brother, Wan Azaman Ahmad, 41, said they would prepare the cendol traditionally, without using any machines.
"Traditionally prepared cendol is softer to the bite. Those made using machines are more refined but harder," he said.
When they first started the business, only red beans and glutinous rice were the condiments used to complement a plain cendol.
Azaman said due to great demand from the crowd at lunch time and after working hours, they plan to expand the business by having a kiosk or restaurant.
Currently, they are operating under tents.
The rice flour that is used to make cendol has a little salt added to it to give it more flavour.
A bowl of plain cendol is made creamy by the addition of coconut milk from half-ripe coconuts.
Customers can also choose to have crushed ice or ice cubes in their bowl of cendol.
Ice cubes are often used for takeaway cendol as they take a longer time to melt.
The condiments of red beans, sweet corn, glutinous rice, tapai, and tapai pulut are then added.
Customers can opt for a combination of condiments.
Special cendol has brown sugar (gula melaka) syrup added to it, with the amount varying according to the customer's taste.
The cendol is priced between RM1.20 and RM2.20 per bowl, including takeaways.
Besides cendol, customers, can also have a meal of rice or noodles at the stall.
Among the food sold at the stall are nasi lemak, nasi ambang, nasi beringin, nasi beriyani, nasi tomato, fried noodles, mee siam, sausages and fish balls.
The food is priced between RM1 and RM3 per packet.
If you want to have something to eat while waiting for your cendol, sliced guava and tapai are readily available.
The business is open from 10.30am until 6pm daily, except on Fridays.
It also caters for weddings and other functions.
The stall is in Jalan Suria 12, Taman Suria.
