The stall's bright blue signboard shouting 'Ais Tingkap' on Lebuh Tamil (off Jalan Penang), beside Chowrasta bazaar, will not be ignored. The young guy who'll concoct this long, cool drink called ais tingkap drink for you is the third generation to run the family's (almost) 90-year old business (since 1928). Imagine, Penangites have been drinking this delicately sweet and refreshing drink of biji selasih (basil seeds), isi kelapa (coconut flesh) and rose syrup topped with coconut water and shaved ice, for three generations. It doesn't get any cooler than that, surely. This stall also serves refreshing ais kacang and cendol to cool off the afternoon heat. Just keep in mind that the stall is closed on Sunday. Su Aziz
