Ais Tingkap

Tamil Street (Lebuh Tamil) is a narrow road next to Chowrasta Market (Pasar Chowrasta). There is an Indian drinks stall here called Ais Tingkap. Operating since 1928, Ais Tingkap is also known as "Window Sherbet" because its drinks were originally sold through a window.
The signature drink, Ais Tingkap (RM2.00), contains more ingredients than it appears. It is prepared from coconut water, shaved ice, rose syrup, young coconut flesh, frankincense resin (getah anggur) and basil seeds (biji selasih). Just before serving, the iced drink is given a spray of Indian herbs for the aroma.
I think the drink is acceptable as a thirst quencher. Although frankincense resin and basil seeds are novel ingredients, I do not really like their consistency.
