It totally comes to my surprise there is actually a cafe inside bengawan solo and yes they are selling chendol! I was looking for somewhere to sit down, relax and chit chat after some walks around the shopping centre and we noticed that Bengawan Solo do provide seatings. Without further ado, we went into the shop and take a look. There, we decided to order some kuehs and
From what I know, Bengawan Solo cakes and kuehs have a high standard and it wont disappoint us. Therefore we had chosen assorted kuehs in the box - Kueh Lapis @ $1.80, Kueh Dadar @ $1.20, corn kueh at $1.00 and Pandan Chiffon Cake at $1.20 .
Love the fluffy chiffon pandan cake, spongy feelings and doesnt require much strength to have it chewed. A bad side about it is that it does not have much Pandan Fragrance.
Corn Kueh is usually my favourite. yammy! This kueh is filled with bits of corns and it gives the crunch out of the pack of slimy coconut aroma kueh.
What I love most out of the purchases is the cendol @ $2.80. Sweet tasting black syrup over the "ice mountain"! Finely cut snow flakes that once you put into your tongue it melts down. The coconut milk does taste abit different from other cendol.
Yammy striking green jelly with big RED beans. Generous fillings beneath the ice mountain.Service
Service is rather slow. There are 5 workers to man the shop however, i guess the dine in customers are unhappy about the waiting time. Tables are not cleared promptly. I have to wait about 15 minutes to have the cendol served.Ambience
Tables are fully packed. It's all placed in the open area in front of the escalator and the shop. Since it is partition with low lying walls, it's still separatePrice
Bengawan Solo pricing is quite steep as always but they do maintain a kind of market standard. Overall, I will still have their kuehs once in a blue moon.Recommendation / Tips
Will recommend you to try out the cendol
