In Malaysia, when the weather is hot, the answer is always Cendol or Ais Kacang, and today, we’re going to talk about one of the better Cendols here in Shah Alam – Cendol Pak Akob

Located outside the mosque at Shah Alam Seksyen 16, Cendol Pak Akob is no stranger to the locals and students of UiTM, the huge university nearby.

Cendol Pak Akob, perfect for this hot afternoon. With tapai of course. #kyeats #cendol #shahalam #halal

The cendol is operated from one of those original food truck that’s been around for decades (one where the operator stands by the side instead of INSIDE the truck). Thankfully, they also prepared a number of tables and chairs complete with giant umbrellas for your convenience.

Pak Akob offers basic cendol (RM 1.50) with a few additions:

  • Cendol Pulut (RM 2.50)
  • Cendol Tapai (RM 2.50)
  • Cendol Jagung (RM 2.00)
  • Cendol Pulut Jagung or Tapai Jagung (RM 2.50)

Of course, you can also mix & match from the above “extra” ingredients as you wish. My favorite is tapai, the fermented glutinous rice that carries a slightly sourish taste that matches really well with the sweet nature of cendol.

On a hot day just after you have a good meal of bak kut teh in Klang, this is definitely a place worth checking out.
