Ambra juice 莎梨果汁

In Penang, the Hokkiens call the fruit ‘ambra’, apparently derived from its common name 'ambarella'.  In KL, the Cantonese call it '莎梨'.  The Malays call it 'kedondong'.  Over the South China Sea, the Sarawak’s kedondong are much bigger, and they too have different name : ‘buah kunõng’.

Ambra juice /莎梨水 is easily available all over eatery in KL and Penang, but not in Sarawak.   It is best served chilled with a preserved sour plum / 酸梅.
