Jakarta Street Food: Es Cendol


You can get this drink pretty much anywhere in Java.  Crushed ice, coconut milk, cendol and syrup.  A bit too much syrup if you ask me, but compared with Coca Cola it’s not that much.  The cendol is the green stuff he puts into the glass.  It’s a kind of scented dough.  It looks like little tadpoles.  They make it by squeezing it through a colander.  Don’t worry about the ice, it’s safe to drink it.

A refreshing drink for a hot day.
