I'm often at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail area since that's where the pet shop we get our kitty supplies is located. Every time I'm there, I notice a van packed opposite the KFC which sells fruit rojak and tofu bakar and is run by a Chinese couple. Now on days when they're not around, instead it's just a man with a motorbike stall selling fruit rojak. According to my sources from the pet shop, this man is actually the father of the lady who usually sells from the van. Whenever she's on her off day which is Thursday, he steps in and sells rojak.
I've tried the daughter's rojak before which was pretty good stuff but after you taste her dad's rojak which is the original recipe, it pales in comparison. Here at his stall, he uses a different method - instead of pre-cut fruits and vegetables, he slices them as and when you order so they're not dried out. What is most important is his rojak sauce which is so much thicker and aromatic compared to his daughter's rojak sauce. We reckon she doesn't make it as thick since it's more cost effective for her business.
For this version, it was the ultimate one at RM5 which came full of blanched brown sotong, tiny grilled sotong, blanched kangkung (water spinach), chopped pineapple, cucumber, papaya with crunchy yau char kuai slices. Coupled with his thick rojak sauce, a sprinkling of crushed peanuts and a dash of calamansi lime juice, it was absolutely delicious. Do give it a try the next time you're around this area on Thursday or if you're lucky to spot him around.
