Cendol Leman Dawi near Seremban

#1 Post by naim » Sun Apr 12, 2009 6:49 pm

Yesterday we were loitering in the Senawang area, just south of Seremban, when we decided to pay the oft-mentioned cendol paradise of Leman Dawi's. What is cendol (pronounced 'chen-doll')? See HERE.

And where's exactly Cendol Leman Dawi? Location: HERE

Along the Seremban-Tampin trunk road, just after Senawang, you won't miss it on the left.
Image

The white tents and the eye-catching yellow banners will pull you in.
Image

Makeshift stools under the cool shade, near the main road, attest to the popularity of this spot. In the distant, a family is enjoying the goodies. Great stuff!
Image

Free refills make the whole affair even more exciting, especially for freeloaders.
Image

Mr Leman Dawi himself is on hand to greet visitors, and to shout instructions to his efficient workers.
Image

Otherwise he's found bonding with his guests. A very colourful and vocal character, Leman Dawi is.

There's a solid queue as we enter the tent. Hope the chow is not sold out yet. The popular cendol normally gets finished by early afternoon, sometimes even earlier. :D

Expectant cendol buffs patiently await their turns.
Image

In the 'kitchen' staff are feverishly preparing more cendol and stuff.
Image

Fancy some barley drinks to wash down your cendol? Grab them for free, unlimited refills.

Festive mood under the warm canopy.

So here's the beef. Plain-looking cendol, but the taste ... ummm ... pretty decent, especially the freshly-prepared green cendol, and the coconut milk syrup.
Image

And of course, the free refill. Just serve yourself, but frankly, the thing is so watery and sweet that you can't really take in much.
Image

Cendol Leman Dawi done! Will we come back? I guess so, just for the great festive-like ambience and to bump into Mr Leman Dawi again. Great cendol a bonus. :thumbsup:

Kasi benchmark sikit la .. any cendol to compare with in KL?

Do they serve traditional cendol or do you have option of adding sweetcorn, red bean etc - which personally - defeats the idea of cendol! I like my cendol simple and pure the way it has been for generations!

Thanks for sharing.

I think the free refills of the green cendol noodles is really cool!
