Just like Singaporean culture, rojak is a dish that is all mixed up to form a refreshing, savoury-sweet salad.
Great for parties, sharing at the dinner table or even an appetiser to start the meal, this fruit salad is peppered with peanuts and laced with hae kor (fermented prawn paste), and sometimes further embellished with century egg.
These are said to be some of the best in town.
