Ais Tingkap at Lebuh Tamil

The stall's bright blue signboard emblazoned with 'Ais Tingkap' isn't hard to miss. This third generation business has been in operation since 1928. Imagine, Penangites have been savouring this sweet, refreshing beverage containing biji selasih (basil seeds), isi kelapa (coconut flesh), sirap ros (rose syrup), kelapa air (coconut water) and shaved ice for close to a century. It doesn't get any cooler than that! Come with friends to sample more icy treats; the ais kacang and cendol are other popular Malaysian desserts designed to beat the afternoon heat.
