Es Dawet di Palembang

In Malaysia we call it cendol but here in Indonesia or maybe Palembang (not sure) this drink is called Es Dawet. In Malaysia it is cendol a concoction of cendol, coconut milk and brown sugar juice and top up with shaved ice.  IMG-20111114-00557
Its the same basic mixture as in Malaysia but something extra here is a bulb of durian is added giving it a different taste compared to our popular cendol pulut in Malaysia.

Had the experience trying this drink during the SEA Games 2011 in Palembang. Its cooling and refrehsing to drink on a hot day. However the drink is a bit sweet and might not be suitable for those who are concerned with his/her high sugar content in the blood. Its worth trying. Price? hmmmmm……sorry I forgot.
