Cendol Bakar Kuala Selangor at Kampung Assam Jawa is a road side food stall selling cendol. There are many other food stalls as well but the popular one is the original Cendol Bakar. We stopped by here on our way back from Sekinchan trip to taste the well-known cendol bakar which has already been shared by many cendol fans on the Internet.
We ordered 4 bowls of normal Cendol Bakar for RM 2 each. There are many other types of cendol bakar here as well combining Nata de coco, selasih (basil), jagung (corn), kacang (peanut), pulut (Glutinous rice), durian and tapai (traditional fermented food). The shaved ice is cooling enough to quench our thirst on the hot day.
The recipe is based on the owner’s granddad, Encik Abu Bakar Saidin. The gula Melaka (palm sugar) is roasted (bakar) in preparing the ingredients for the cendol bakar. So the name Cendol Bakar is suitable since it carries the name of the recipe owner and the way of preparing it. The cendol is very delicious with roasted / burnt taste that mix very well with the creamy coconut milk. One bowl is never enough but I need to keep fit.
The menu of the original Cendol Bakar. Please note that the price may increase over time. There are some many kinds of combination but for my first time I tried the original one. Will try other combination for my next visit. They have branches in Melaka and Port Dikson as well. Make sure to look for their registered trademark logo as there are many copy cats of cendol bakar around. Do support the original.
