People queuing up for a bowl of Teochew chendul (or cendol) at the famous stall at Penang Road, George Town.

The exact location of the stall is actually along Keng Kwee Street (Lebuh Keng Kwee) in George Town. Chendul is a traditional dessert popular in Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. It is usually made up of coconut milk, jelly ‘green noodles’ and red beans served with shaved ice and palm sugar.

Keng Kwee Street

Keng Kwee Street (or Lebuh Keng Kwee) is a rather small street that links up Penang Road and Kuala Kangsar Road in central George Town. The street was named after Chinese Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee, the only man honored with two roads in Penang (the other street named after him was Ah Quee Street). Keng Kwee Street is now famous as the location of the most popular and often crowded Teochew Cendol stall.
