Needed something cooling to kill off the heat of the afternoon - so revisited this place to have a Durian chendol - seems to me that the standards have gone down - not sufficient Durian paste - and the chendol itself feels like it is not as good as before - not that it is a big price at 5.90...

The Durian chendol was probably the best that I have had in Melaka. Very rich. May be a tad too sweet. I would have loved a little more of the snow ice.

This durian cendol was well-recommended by many. Even the guide from the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum suggested us to have a try. We bought 1 bowl for RM5.90. Upon payment, cashier passed the ready-made cendol to us. Once we opened the lid, we felt disappointed. Despite of that, we mixed the cendol thoroughly and ate. Unfortunately, nothing to shout...

Enjoyed the Durian chendol. Fine ice and not overly sweet. Taste of durian is just nice, not too overpowering. Lao Qian ice coffee is normal.

one of the more popular places in melaka. it's a variety store which serves chendol as well as selling all sorts of malaysian specialty foods. if you're in melaka, you've just gotta stop by and try their chendol. even though chendol isn't really my thing (tried three times while in malaysia), i still think you should stop by and try...

Being no one coffee at Melaka and have an oulet at a corner jonker street are good for marketing strategy for Lao Qian.

Must try their Durian Cendol! Best way to enjoy durian, in my opinion. Maybe the only way that might make you want to give durian a try.
