Best Rojak in Singapore
|Soon Heng Rojak|
|Evangelistic Service Invitation|
This highly raved Soon Heng Rojak was located at Gourmet Paradise Food Court located in the Toa Payoh HDB Hub.
We spotted an ultra long queue when we arrived at the food court. In order to better experience this, I volunteered to queue for the rojak whilst the guys went to find seats and order their main courses.
What is Rojak?
For the benefit of the foreigners, I shall explain what is this local delicacy ‘Rojak’ all about.
The term ‘Rojak’ stems from the Malay word meaning a ‘Mixture’. In the Western perspective, perhaps the term ‘Salad’ would be more appropriate as this dish consists of a mixture of fruits and vegetables.
The ingredients and dressing used in the ‘Rojak’ differs from country to country due to the difference in traditional culture. In Singapore, we have the Mamak Rojak and Indian Rojak served by the Malays in Indians respectively.
The Malay Mamak Rojak has been adored by myself as the ingredients consists of fried dough fritters, cuttlefish, bean curds, cucumber, boiled potatoes, prawn fritters and bean sprouts mixed with a concentrated sweet and spicy peanut sauce.
The Indian Rojak on the other hand consists of an assortment of eggs, bean curd, fried battered prawns and potatoes served with a red-coloured sweet and spicy chilli sauce.
After having known more about this delicacy, we shall move on to the review accordingly.
We ordered a SGD4.00 portion of the Rojak as we have 3 people sharing the plate of Rojak altogether. The Rojak was served with a generous serving of the dark peanut sauce with a tint of chilli. The fried dough fritters were harder and crispier than the ones we would normally get from the markets which is good as fried dough fritters tend to go soggy after absorbing the Rojak gravy. This dish was perfect as the fried dough fritters remained really crispy for a long time. Also, the cucumbers and other ingredients complemented the overall taste although I adored the fried dough fritters most 😉
We enjoyed our dining experience at the food court as the food served were of great value of money. Da Piggy gobbled down most of the fried dough fritters from the Rojak as they were so crispy and tasty leaving little for the rest of us to savor.. Meh~
