A shop located on the happening cafe street right across the border in JB, Sangkaya is hard to miss. Located right opposite The Replacement- lodge and kitchen, Kone cafe and beside Flowers in the Window cafe, Sangkaya is cafe specialising in all things coconut. Their main 3 best sellers are the coconut milkshake (8.90 RM), mix flavoured ice cream in a coconut husk (9.90 RM) and the coconut ice cream chendol (9.90 RM).
My mum and I were too full to order more, so we decided to order the coconut ice cream chendol as well as a cup of fresh coconut water (12.90 RM for both) to share. I must say the actual order does not match up to the photos displayed at all and the portion was SO MUCH smaller than pictured. We were a little disappointed but weren’t too bothered seeing how the price is reasonable and we were really full.
Despite the mismatch in expectation, we really enjoyed the coconut ice cream chendol and it was the perfect way to end our brunch. The combinations went so well together and it was incredibly refreshing. Just from tasting the ice cream at the top alone, we knew the ice cream was of high quality and the most natural ingredients. The fresh coconut taste is so strong and rich and leaves the best taste on your tongue. I highly recommend this! The next time I head there I’m definitely getting the signature coconut ice cream in a coconut husk. They offer matcha, teh tarik, thai milk tea and coconut flavoured ice cream which you can mix and match with any topping you’d like.
