  • This Malaysian dessert place is so good and there isn't anything else like it in Shanghai. They serve cendol, which is shaved ice with coconut milk, green rice flour jelly, and palm sugar, plus toppings like grass jelly or red bean. This spot uses actual palm sugar, which makes a huge difference. Their menu is one page, including pictures. The staff are super nice. They have a few table games and a large painting of a tropical bird on the wall. Very rare.

    Next time you want ice cream or milk tea, consider Cendol instead. Get the Penang shaved ice, maybe add some ximi and the 10rmb Durian ice cream. This shop is doing something unique and that's tough in Shanghai so show some love and keep the cendol around.
