802 Tampines Famous Rojak: Delicious Mess
First post about Rojak, but definitely not my first try on this local delicacy! This delicious mess is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. The term “rojak” is Malay for mixture and is commonly a toss of beansprouts, greens, tau pok (or deep-fried soybean cake), you tiao (crispy long strip of fried flour),
pineapple, cucumber, and a generous sprinkle of finely chopped roasted peanuts with a fermented prawn paste sauce.
Alternative to the traditional rojak will be the you tiao rojak. As the name suggests, this is for people who wants enjoy the taste of the paste, but only tossed with you tiao and tau pok.
I’ve eaten some that tasted horrible, simply odd tasting which was left untouched after a couple of bites.
The portion of you tiao served here are relatively large and more importantly, crispy! Shiok to the max!
Looking forward to have more rojak adventures. Do suggest below and lepak together!
