Bukit Mertajam houses plenty of eateries, and Ah Meng Coffee Shop is one ideal eatery where one can find cheap and good teatime snacks. Located along Jalan Pasar, this coffee shop is famous for its Rojak Orang Hitam Putih and the Li Guang Popiah.

The ingredients of the popiah include fried bean curd, fried egg, prawn, bean sprout, crunchy lettuce and turnip. The popiah is dressed with chili and hoisin sweet sauce and topped with fried garlic oil, chili sauce and turnip-based gravy.

Other popular tea time snack is the Orang Hitam Putih Rojak. There are a few rojak stalls around, however this stall has remained the most talked about over the years. The point that really stands out is the cleanliness of the stall, which is consistently kept to the upmost.

The rojak itself is kept relatively simple, with the fruits encompassing of guava, pineapple, cucumber and jambu drenched in a thick homemade rojak sauce. A handful of crushed peanuts and sour plum powder is then sprinkled all over before serving! Prices of the rojak start from RM3, which is reasonably large enough for two. Customers can also buy the “Rojak Orang Hitam Putih” sauce which is sold in containers.

The rojak orang hitam putih is a hot favourite

Apart from the rojak and popiah, Assam Laksa is also available at RM2 per bowl. These dishes form an ideal tea time snack, coupled with glasses of fruit juices and Kopi-O.

If you have the GPS location point sharing too, then it will be very good. Sometime it quite trouble to find the place where not familiar with the location.
