I have frequent Brothers Rojak at Clementi Avenue 3 on several occasions but I always order takeaway. I finally get the chance to eat in at the coffeeshop with my foodie friends on a weekend. I was eager and proud to introduce to my friends my favourite Rojak stall in Singapore.
Usually when I take away, the sauce is packed separately. I just pour the sauce and mixed the ingredients myself. Resulting in a pool of gravy at the end. Having the opportunity to eat in, I realized how skillful the uncle is, in getting all the various ingredients to be evenly coated with the savoury shrimp paste sauce. Topped with roasted peanuts and some finely cut bunga kantan (pink ginger bud) to round off the sweet, tangy and nutty enjoyment.
The Rojak priced from $3 to $8 comes with a variety of ingredients such as tau pok, youtiao, cucumber, pineapple and jicama. The tau pok and youtiao were given a quick toast for crisp. For a little extra cost, one can add on additional items such as tau pok, youtiao, cuttlefish and century egg.
During my recent visit, I noticed that the stall uncle seems to have aged quite a bit. I wonder how long can he continue doing this. He basically stands the whole day, mixing and tossing the ingredients in a bowl. I doubt he has the chance to have a rest at all. In all my visits, there is always a queue and it never seems to stop. I really hope the stall uncle will stay healthy and strong for many more years to come.
