One of my favorite things to have for late afternoon “tea time” snack is a good plate of mamak rojak. (also known as passembur in the North, such as Penang)
The typical set up is a truck that offers rojak and cendol, and they are usually parked at a predetermined area, sometimes with a couple tables and chairs for a make shift dine-in area.
Hasan’s Rojak and Cendol truck, outside seapark market
Hasan’s Rojak is one of the more famous rojak vans around. The operator usually stationed the van opposite PJ Seapark wet market, behind Kedai Kopi Khong and just a few shops away from the Ayamas shop.
There are usually a healthy crowd around the van, most will order for takeaway, but there are a few tables under giant umbrellas should you decide to have a quick meal on location.
a proper plate of mamak rojak, I like mine with sotong too
The rojak comes in two versions – normal (RM 3.70) and with sotong (RM 5.00). I always go for the version with cuttle fish, as their version is pretty close to those you get from Penang style “sotong kakung” consistency, with great texture that’s not overly chewy.
Other ingredients were spot on, and the slightly sweetish rojak sauce packs a punch in flavors. It is easy to see why this is one of the more popular rojak places.
unfortunately they ran out of cendol this afternoon
Like most other such set up, they also offer cendol and ice kacang. As luck would have it, they ran out of ice while I was there, so I guess I’ll have to go back there again!
