Penang Weekend Trip: Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendol, Georgetown

I suppose one of the ways to promote the food that you sell is by putting the word "Famous" as part of your brand mark. But, Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul is not famous by name only. Because after all no business will last without good quality food (plus good price tag too). This chendul stall at the corner of Penang Road seems to always have crowd attending especially when the weather is scorching hot. Which is the usual weather for Penang.

Thankfully it does not take very long to prepare a bowl of chendul since the ingredients are all already prepared beforehand. The men behind the food cart just have to mix all the ingredients together and put some shaved ice on top of them in a bowl.

Even the wall mural showing a man eating chendul. Oh right, there's the queue right there. Do not get intimidated by the long queue as they serve chendul pretty fast although you may have to consume them standing. Takeaway cup is available but you have to pay a bit extra at RM 3.20 (the dine in option costs RM 2.90).

My travel buddy and I managed to secure seats for two inside the nearby coffee shop and that's good! Because this way, I could take picture of this very popular Teochew Chendul. It looks nothing much but this simple dessert taste so good especially when consumed under the hot weather.

If you are getting full after all the street food that you have consumed, you can spend a your time walking around and checking out the souvenir shops which are scattered all over Georgetown. This is the nearest souvenir store located right opposite the chendul stall and oh wow, I've never thought I would see Mr Bean's bear plush in this souvenir store. Anyone's watching Mr Bean before? Used to be one of my family's favourite shows. Rowan Atkinson's a genius indeed.
