Singapore Hawker Food : Rojak

Are U Hungry 😋?

#AUHBMark


@ Blk 90 Whampoa Food Centre, Whampoa Drive, stall : Balestier Road Hoover Rojak #01-06


Ordered my all-timed favourite Rojak $4/plate.



What’s so good 😊?

This stall manned by junior son, Mr Stanley Lim, almost 50years old and had taken over since 6 years ago and has a uncle helping to take orders ...his Dad had passed on in 2017 due to colon cancer.



The photos taken : Mr Chow Yuen Fatt, Hong Kong Actor and his late Father, still proudly displayed at the side glass panel.

Out of respect, not captured here !



2 pricings available : $4/ $5, latter difference = extra ingredients ...


After 10mins of Q, my plate ready. Photo eats ! Garnished w/ fragrance lettuce 🥬 on top and whole plate filled with crunchy peanuts 🥜...



Their version of rojak comprises strips of freshly cut youtiao, tau pok, pieces of radish, pineapple 🍍, slices of unripe mango 🥭, pieces of cucumber 🥒 ; guava; red water Apple 🍎 (for its juiciness), bean sprouts, and jelly fish strips (that’s their 1st powerful weapon) , blended together and mixed with thicker than usual shrimp 🦐 paste sauce (that give the extra punch 🤜 and extra kick 🦵- that’s their 2nd weapon!), ginger flower 🌷, added palm sugar for taste, chillies 🌶 and a bit of Assam water, mixed well then squeezed lime (leaving behind cut-strips of limes) followed by lots of peanuts 🥜scattered all over the plate. It’s powerful gravy sauce is not too sweet and thick, that enticed me most !

That’s oomph factor strongest ever coupled with fresh ingredients daily ! 😮 🤩 ⭐️ 👍


It’s a real blessing that 2G (2nd generation) had taken off and running the stall well with long Q snaking out always, during peak lunch hours...


To me, It’s without a doubt, the Best of Best Rojak ever produced, just like what his Father had endeared me before ...


it’s Hoover Rojak ... Yummily 😋 Great 👍!
