Okay so I’ve heard SO MUCH about the “delicious” Indian Rojak at the Adam Road Food Centre that might actually be the best Indian Rojak in town. Supposedly.
I remember seeing one of those makan shows on TV when I was younger and they featured this famous stall at Adam Road Food Centre. It had this giant pot of Indian Rojak gravy that was on constant heat so you get it piping hot and thus ensuring you have a great serving of Indian Rojak.
And after years and year and years of saying I’ve simply got to try it, the time finally arrived.
Okay let me start of by saying that my darling wife and I went there on a Saturday evening at about 6pm.
Now, I’m not sure if this is the prime time for Indian Rojak but the selection at the stall was not very impressive to be honest.
Was it because we went at the wrong time?
Or is it because this Indian Rojak is so damn nice that the good stuff was all sold out by the time we arrived?
Well we still managed to get some of the usual like Fish Cake, Paru (BeefLung), Hotdog, Prawn Wadeh, Potato and Flour with Egg. The individual item range between $0.70 to $1.50 (Minimum Order $3.00) which is pretty normal for Indian Rojak I guess… But the problem with Indian Rojak is… no matter whatever you choose, in the end you just pay the guy whatever price he mentions. Like in this case – I don’t think that plate above costs $8.00…
One thing that was good about this place is that they will quickly fry your items in a giant kuali of boiling oil ensuring a nice crisp to the rojak. Butt if you’re looking for anything more than that, sorry. That’s it.
And now – the most important part of Indian Rojak (in my humble opinion)
The kuah is oh so the important lah!!
And in this case, this is what you will encounter…
First – Sweet. Second – Spicy. Third – Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
And it definitely helps that it’s served piping hot! One of the best Indian Rojak gravy ever!
And in case you were wondering, the sweetness isn’t because of sugar.
Interestingly, it’s because of little sultanas that they add into the gravy… Smart!
Last but not least I simply have to mention this.
The first time the guys passed me our plate of Rojak, it turned out to be the wrong one. Meaning some other dude also got the wrong plate. So we had to go back and tell them “We didn’t take any Tahu”.
Indian Rojak 2.5/5
Indian Rojak 3/5
Okay to be perfectly honest, I really wasn’t impressed. So much for the Best Rojak in Town?
But then again, it really might have been bad timing. So many reviews saying it rocks must count for something right? Right?
So i reckon we might go back for a 2nd try. Plus I saw some other stuff I wanna try too.
