ROJAK & CENDOL

The weather looks like going to rain when we stepped out from a shopping mall. On the way driving back to my place, we decided to stop by the road side to have rojak/ pasembor and cendol for an afternoon tea break. Never mind if it's rain, there is big umbrella to cover the three of us from getting wet.

The owner, an Indian man is assisted by a malay lady helper to run his daily business using a mini van.  Usually,  brisk business during noon and from 3pm onward, lesser crowd but unpredictable.

This is my second time eating here and similar to my first visit, I placed the same order i.e. a plate of Rojak and a bowl of Cendol since mom insisted to share as she can't finish it by herself and sis is already full after a hearty lunch.

Rojak with Cuttle Fish (RM5)
In Penang, this staple is commonly known as Pasembor. Filled with a mountain full of julienne turnip, cucumber, fried prawn fritter, crunchy crackers with added cuttlefish (at extra cost) and laced with thick red gravy made of chillies and sweet potatoes plus other secret ingredients. I ate mostly pieces of spicy cuttlefish and crunchy crackers while my mom help polished the remaining in the plate.


Cendol Pulut (RM1.80)
When having rojak, make sure you order cendol too! This time, I find the coconut milk too diluted which could be too much of shaving ice. The rest were pretty standard ingredients i.e palm sugar, soft red bean, steamed glutinous rice and worm like green jelly.


HOW TO GET THERE?
After the traffic light junction, (on your left is Nong & Jimmy Thai BBQ Seafood Restaurant in Pandan Cahaya), turn and keep left. About 5 minutes drive, you  will see this mini van at the roadside.
