Mamak rojak (or pasembur in places like Penang) must be one of my favorite afternoon light meals. Sometimes I just wish that some of these stalls actually sell them at supper time too. The mixture of cucumber, turnip, potato, bean curd, prawn fritters, hard boiled egg, and cuttle fish in that sweet, nutty, and spicy sauce would make perfect supper!
This is of course, not to be confused with fruit rojak that is usually offered by Chinese hawkers.
cuttle fish is my favorite ingredient in rojak
Here at Klang Valley, most mamak rojak stalls operate from a van and usually offers chendol as dessert/drink to go with the main. The more enterprising ones sometimes offer mee goreng, mee rojak, and maybe even mee rebus too.
Lucky for me, one of the better rojak stalls operates right opposite Taman Bahagia LRT station, within walking distance from where I stay. While some people insist that there are better rojak stalls, I happen to like this one quite a bit.
The queue isn’t usually very long, and their chendol actually sucked, but the rojak is quite awesome. The ingredients are fresh, and most importantly, they get the sauce right, with a hint of spiciness (you can of course, have it super spicy if you like) and sweetness in that thick, nutty flavored concoction.
A serving of rojak with hard boiled egg goes for RM 4.50, you save RM 0.50 if you choose to not have egg with it. They also serve a few other dishes that I’ve never tried, and don’t bother with their chendol.
Ah, by the way, I would have taken a close up photo of the stall but the owner said he was worried about IRS people. hahaha
