Balestier Hoover Rojak

Blk 90 Whampoa Drive #01-641
(Not Open on Tuesdays)

My mother loves rojak, but i never liked it till i was older and started eating vegetables. Hence in the past when my mother wanted to eat it, i used to say, "YUCK, it just looks like a burnt salad!" However, my eating philosophy has changed a little, taste more things, learn to enjoy more things, and i have now acquired quite an appetite for this 'burnt salad'.

This is my favourite rojak stall in Singapore. The sauce is of perfect consistency, not too thick, not too runny and it is the wonderful kiss of lime in their sauce makes all the difference. In addition to that, along with the usual pineapple, cucumber, turnip, you tiao and tau pok that you have in it, you can have mango slices added. They also throw in a few pieces of jellyfish which gives it an added texture and flavour. It is one of the best on our island, but beware of the bird shit shower that you car might get in the carpark.

Toa Payoh Rojak at Old Airport Road Hawker centre is still the BEST!
