Rojak/Rujak = Party in your mouth

A colourful fruit bowl covered with thick dressing that enjoyable to share with your friends. A Kind of afternoon snack or a more “healthy” option for dessert, this Rojak or Rujak mixed is something you can’t say no to. So how do we say it? Rojak or Rujak? Singapore & Malaysian called it Rojak, and Indonesian called it Rujak. They all have the same meaning which is “ mixed” and each country have their own version.

This morning, on my way to groceries shopping around clement area, I stopped by at Block 499, to take away pad thai for lunch. Nearby there’s a famous rojak stall that’s usually have long queu at lunch time, Since it was 9.45am, so it was empty. Greeted by the friendly uncle who mixed the rojak, He said they always open at 9.25 am sharp never miss and closes at 21.30 pm wow heads off for your punctuality uncle! This Singapore style rojak consist of jicama, pineapple, cucumber, tau pok, cuttlefish and chinese fritters with thick spicy dressing, definitely a  party in your mouth!!

If you take away your rojak, the uncle will separate the dressing so they will not get soggy  if you eat them later. It’s a  must try if you around Clementi area. .
