I must have been hypnotised by Cumi & Ciki’s recent blog post which featured a fruit rojak – so much so that I was hankering for it badly and just had to get some for myself!
So today when I was in TTDI for an errand, I spotted this white van in front of 7-11 across from the KFC and holy smoke! “Fruit Rojak” was splashed right across the top of the van… hehehe! Wahlauu… that was like godsend, karma, fate … whatever you may call it lah.
So… apa tunggu lagi? I dashed across the street and bought a packet…. and this was my lunch:
There were brown sotong, fried crispy yau-char-kuey, toasted rolled sotong, taukwa amidst the assortment of cucumber, pineapples, sengkuang, jambu air, papaya, guava… what else… oh yeah, mango too… and blanched kangkong! Wow! What a lot of fruits & vegetables! The rojak sauce was a little bit on the sweet side but that’s nicely balanced when you bite into the chunks of sour pineapples and mangoes! I usually do not like the fried crispy crackers in my rojak but in this case I dipped all of them into the yummy sauce and finished every last piece – so teruk, hoh?!
Nice… I like I like!
A regular pack costs RM3.50. I asked to “tambah” sotong… and it was a very generous portion of sotong too… the lady seller also tambah’ed more chunks of fruits for me… so that’s why you see the whole styrofoam box was packed to the max! All that for RM6.00! It was indeed a very satisfying lunch for me :-))
The only thing is that you have to be very patient because the lady seller is really very “see-mun”… she takes her own sweet time mixing the concoction and packing it for you. So be prepared to stand there for at least 5-10 minutes in the hot sun (like today lahh) even though there was no queue! If there’s a queue, and if it’s a blistering day (like today), I suggest you take shelter at the 5-footway after giving your order… otherwise you may just pengsan from heatstroke.
