Es Selendang Mayang

Good Day Every One,

How’s your Christmas holiday?  I hope everyone had a great weekend and great Monday as well!!

Today I want to share with you one of the famous Betawi desserts called Es Selendang Mayang

Es Selendang Mayang

Es Selendang Mayang consists of Kueh Selendang Mayang, Palm Sugar and coconut milk.

Kueh Selendang Mayang

FYI, Betawi are the descendants of the people who staying around Batavia (the colonial name for Jakarta) from around 17century. Betawi has a rich of culture and foods.

Nowadays, it's very difficult to find Es Selendang Mayang seller in Jakarta.

Maybe it’s because all the Betawi young generations are not interested to sell this dessert or there is no market for this old-time kueh.  Luckily, I manage to find this Es Selendang Mayang seller in Kampung Jajan Betawi.

The way the seller cut the Kueh Selendang Mayang is quite unique.

He is using a small wood stick to cut the kueh. After cut, he will put the kueh into a small cup of glass. After that, he will put ice, Palm Sugar water and coconut milk.


Below is a video taken for you to see how the seller cut the kueh.
