I was rather skeptical about this allegedly famous Indian rojak stall at first.
“Let’s eat Indian rojak tonight!” said the Goonfather a few nights ago, “There’s this famous stall in Tampines I’ve been wanting to try out.”
It has been highly rated on TV, newspapers, forums, food sites and blogs.
I was still skeptical.
I couldn’t imagine how good it could be. I love Indian rojak, but it’s always more or less the same deal. I’ve eaten what I’ve considered “good” ones. (I’ve also had “bad” ones for comparison.) How much better could it get?
A LOT BETTER, APPARENTLY.
Located at the S-11 Food Court at Blk 506 Tampines Central 1, Ave 4, there was a healthy queue at the stall at about 8:30 pm on a Sunday night.
After selecting our items, we had to wait 20 minutes for our food to be prepared.
When it finally arrived, I was spectacularly blown away. (It’s self-service, by the way, so you have to wait at your table and return for it at an estimated time they give you.)
It didn’t look very much like your regular Indian rojak.
Everything was freshly deep fried to crispy perfection.
Everything looked great. I’ve never seen such colourful Indian rojak. I mean, the colour of the food was quite unreal (although no less appetising). Never have I seen such vibrant, strong colours radiating off a plate of Indian rojak.
It was quite a surreal experience.
And everything tasted great.
The sauce was awesome.
We downed eight little bowls of that stuff between the five of us.
I am in love!!
The whole lot cost us $30 ($6 each). We only ate this and nothing else. It was filling.
I think it’s a great price for the quality.
This is a happy find! =)
