One of the best desserts for cooling off on a hot sunny day in Singapore would be with the famous chendol! The bowl of shaved ice dessert is topped with coconut milk and gula melaka, and includes ingredients like red beans, green jelly, and sweet corn. Where are the best chendol in Singapore you ask? Here are some of our favourites!
1. Old Amoy Chendol
You know a stall is good when they only have one item on the menu. Old Amoy Chendol is often rated as one of the best chendol in Singapore with its great quality ingredients, and everything is made from scratch daily. The business dates way back to the 1950s, when owner Mr You Ning’s grandfather sold chendol on a pushcart along Amoy Street!
