We get to know about East & West Rendezvous Cafe from blogs. It was said that this cafe has the best nyonya chang in town. Being a big fan of nyonya chang of course we couldn’t let this opportunity slide away. We ordered a nyonya chang to be shared among four of us (yes, hahaha) and if it’s good we will buy more. Accompanying the nyonya chang is two bowls of cendol; our 3rd of the day. Seems like we’re on cendol hunt eh? Our first bowl of cendol in Melaka was from Baba Low and the second bowl from Jonker 88. I’m not going to write about Jonker 88 cendol as they are below average.
The heavenly nyonya chang. I forgot to take a photo before it was cut up. Haha. It really was the best I’ve eaten. The glutinous rice is cooked to perfection and the spices (rempah) is rich and flavorful. This is definitely my kind of nyonya chang. Not to be missed.
Cendol. Compared to Baba Low’s cendol, this is wonderful too. If I were to rate both of them, they are at the equal scale of excellent. Rich santan and gula melaka infused in this heavenly bowl.
Durian cendol is equally good too. The durian paste is extremely rich and original unlike Jonker 88’s one.
We were in luck when we visited East & West Rendezvous Cafe as they were making nyonya chang.
We also bought gula melaka from them. Their gula melaka is dark in color and according to them are richer than typical gula melaka. Of course we bought more nyonya chang to take home. I don’t know how much are the nyonya chang and cendol as they were calculated together.
Will definitely come back for more!
