Bukit Rambai Cendol, Malacca

*from my StarMetro Sept’10 article

This stall wasn’t easy to find. It is located within a Nyonya house compound in Bukt Rambai. If you’re not local, chances are, you would have trouble finding the place. Don’t worry, I took the liberty of keying in the GPS Coordinates (yes, you’re most welcomed!).

Auntie Koh


Auntie Koh operates her stall from 12-2pm on weekends, so get there early or risk leaving empty-handed. Since she mans the stall alone, be prepared to wait for your cendol. Or you can ‘self-service’ and collect it yourself.
The cendol (RM1.80) was top-notch. I have never eaten cendol this rich before. The green starch noodles were redolent of pandan leaves extract, while the lusciously thick and fragrant Gula Melaka (palm sugar) left a lingering sweetness in my mouth. Best.Cendol.Ever!! Auntie Koh uses fresh coconut milk for her cendol — no wonder it’s so good. Apart from cendol, she also sells tai bak (RM1.20), a Peranakan dessert comprising colourful flour noodles in pandan syrup. Curious, I ordered a bowl to try. The noodles are made from three types of flour – rice, tapioca and wheat. It looks a bit like loh shi fun (rats tail noodle), but is a lot thinner. These flour noodles usually come in red, pink, white and yellow colour, but Auntie Koh only makes them in red and white.

Tastewise, I found this a bit plain next to the cendol. rif liked it, so I concluded that it might be a Peranakan thing, since our other two friends (non Peranakans) also found it average.

Ambiance: 4/10
Price: 5/10
Food: 7.5/10
Verdict: Possibly the richest bowl of cendol I’ve eaten!

Jalan Batang Tiga,
Kampung Bukit Rambai,

*The stall is located just before S.R.J.K Bukit Rambai

  1. Another place you should try is the cendol bukit cina.

  2. Hi,
    I agree with your comments. I was lucky enough to try it, as highly recommended by a friend from Malacca.
    The only concern, I wonder how will she manage, after being reviewed by you… since the customers are already flocking in… ;-P

    Lovinlife – LOL…true la. I think we might have to self service!

    TY – I heard about that cendol too. Should go try it when I'm in Malacca next. ;)

  4. Does it open during weekday? :)

      Unfortunately Aunty Koh only opens shop during weekends. Even then, only for 2 hours. So best to get there when she opens at 11am.

  5. Hi, Bangsar Babe,

    Look at your blog, I have just tried the cendol yesterday. It was very nice, good recommendation! I am wonder whether you have her contact as i need to contact Aunty Koh urgently because I might left something valuable in her stall.
    Hope you are able to help up. Thanks alot.
