Won me over
Seems like everyone's raving about this place - and I'm definitely not one to rebuke it. Although I really love Rojak, anyone who has eaten Rojak with my will automatically know that the ingredient that I love the most from the Rojak is the sauce and the Fried Dough Fritters. If you can make those 2 things good, you have the chance to win me over.
So I decided to try this stall with my dad and thought, okay bring on the Rojak and try me. Turns out, the Rojak was better than expected. The sauce was not only sweet and sour, the portion was also generous together with the ingredients that were packed tightly in the little takeaway box. Just meant more fritters for me; all the more reason for me to dig into the delicious dish in front of me.
Oh, how I wish they were in Toa Payoh. That being said, Toa Payoh does have other good Rojak stalls too.
Second generation already
I heard that the current stall owner is the son in law of the original owner. The interesting thing about this stall is the number system. It is like taking a queue number when you are waiting to see a doctor. The stall has a number display like those in the clinic.
So when you reach the stall, you must a queue number ticket first. Then you stayed around and wait for your number to be displayed. Then you go to the stall helper and place your order. It came in different price range and you can choose to have it with chili or without. The really nice thing to add to the taste should be the green apple or mango.
There’s once when I went to Old Airport Road to have dinner with my family. My father bought the rojak and we shared although I wanted one for myself badly. I thought to myself that this time all of us shall share and that next time I will come and order a plate for myself. So a few weeks later I went again with my parents, we reached there at about 10am and realised the stall only starts business at 12pm. I can’t even get the queue number because I’m too early. I just sat there looking at my parents as they ate their food and chatted with them while waiting for the time to pass. Finally at noon, I bought my rojak, quickly went back to my seat and started to enjoy. The dough fritters are crispy, the prawn paste smells nice and the peanuts are crunchy. The serving of the rojak is generous as well. It’s the best rojak that I’ve ever tasted in Singapore.
