Hoover Rojak!

I had vividly remember that there was a famous rojak in Whampoa Hawker Centre as from the last round of visit about a decade ago. I went through every rows in the Hawker Centre to look for the famous rojak stall, lo and behold, it was still there and as expected long queues were seen. I had waited almost 20 minutes for my smallest portion of Rojak ordered.

Queue Up!


The biggest portion of rojak was ordered with a century egg add on at a dollar. Red disposable plastic plates were used for the bigger portion while the white original paper plates were meant for the basic portion. Slices of century egg were well camouflaged among the leafy greens and thick dark sauce.

Ingredients were fresh with crunchy fried fritters (You Tiao), turnip, cucumber, pineapple, beansprouts and a generous amount of peanuts sprinkled heavily onto the delicious plate of "Chinese salad". What overwhelms me is its luscious aplenty of peanut gravy with prawn paste and the small portions jellyfish was found in the Rojak. Sugar crystals were dissolved through the thorough mixing skills by the man. Greens are also added which stands up in the brown and "peanuty" dish.

All of us do love and enjoyed loads of it.
