Coconuts for Joez Coconuts in Penang

Joez is the man when it comes to coconut jelly. This is a rather random coconut trading shop that sits between some tyre shops in the middle of nowhere. I first ordered the coconut pandan – which essentially is fresh coconut juice but that didn’t quite do it for me as it wasn’t as fragrant as the young coconuts and not cold enough for the hot sun that we were walking under. I was hankering after something colder and the coconut jelly that I subsequently ordered really hit the spot. Made from the young coconut, the coconut is roasted and then rapidly cooled down to form this rich flavoured, jell-o soft coconut jelly set in its own shell. Served cold, this is a great refreshing thirst quencher as the cold jelly slowly slides down your throat. Luscious delicious! This was one of the best things I ate in Penang on this trip.


Joez coconut jelly is deliciously addictive. We returned the second day for a second helping of jelly and ordered the coconut shake that was made from coconut juice, ice cream and tapioca pearls – which brought out the creamy characteristics of coconut but the jelly was still the top offering. When in Penang and you are looking for something cold to battle the heat, drop by Joez, it is worth going out of your way to find it.
