This is one of Penang's charm where you can enjoy one & only original Penang "Coconut Jelly" at Joez who are also wholesalers and sellers of coconuts that come from Perak in the mainland.

CK Lam has helped us trace the Penang food trails to this old shop house along Jalan Dato Kramat. This is a one stop which offers you a cool respite from the scorching heat outside as you can savour cool and refreshing coconut drinks that comes in the form of a cold jelly formed within the coconut shell which has been kept in the fridge below 2degrees C.

The clean coconut shells are clean shaven with the husks removed and it is shrink-wrapped to protect this "innocent" thin inner shell of the coconut. Then when you removed the cover, the truthful revelation of what's inside breaks loose!! No coconut water but a jelly within? Dont expect to put a straw like one always do but they offer you a spoon instead. Is this some sort of a transformation that has taken place? Trace back to your Geography lessons then, the versatility of coconut tree, from the leaves, to the husk to the shell and it's content, they all can be transformed into something useful and now a jelly-like coconut drink? How innovative !

Scoop out and taste the translucent jello of coconut drink that fills the whole cavity. You can also can scrape the white coconut flesh to accompany the jelly and what it offers is so divinely cooling and refreshing, a mild fragrant and pleasant taste you have not tasted elsewhere. It's exciting what Penang could offer, something old something new for us to discover on the first day of our trip there.

We were like the "Machiam Katak Di-Bawah Tempurong" if you overturned the empty shells having our first taste of such a nice dessert. Well, at least we have tried and relished such a unique creation.
