Klebang Original Coconut Shake (Malacca)

Klebang Original Coconut Shake was highly recommended by my friend when I last visited Malacca. It isn't near the city and we had to take a cab there. Apparently due to the popularity of the drink, the cab driver was familiar with the place. It took us less than 30 minutes to reach there. The stall is located distinctively along the street and next to Caltex Petrol Station.
The queue was long and we waited for about an hour.
How to get there?
Address: Jalan Klebang Besar, 75200 Melaka (Next to Caltex Petrol Station)
Tel: 013 399 4061
We took a cab there as it isn't near the city. The cab driver waited and drove us back.
Opening hours
Daily from 11am to 6.30pm except Fridays from 2.30pm to 6.30pm
Staff scoops out the coconut flesh diligently.
The coconut flesh is then blended with ice, coconut drink and ice cream.
 A scoop of vanilla ice cream is added to every cup.
To make our trip fruitful, we ordered a total of 7 cups.
The drink tastes refreshing, sweet and a little bit of coconut flavour.
If you are specially making a trip to the stall for this popular drink, I'd suggest travelling in a group so the cab fare is more worthwhile.
