All rojak sellers in Penang claims that their rojak is the best as seen in their sign board of A1, AAA and so forth but there is one stall that truly stands out. It is Hock Seng Rojak stall which is located on the ground floor of Macallum Flat in Gat Lebuh Cecil.
All the mixed fruits and vegetables are packed separately from the prawn sauce (ha koe). The sauce is sprinkled with some powder followed by peanuts. The owner uses uncut peanuts which tasted so much better compared to other stalls that uses crushed peanuts.
Lastly pungent dried shrimps were added to it.
The prawn sauce (ha koe) is so thick that the peanuts and the dried shrimps did not even sink into the sauce unlike those that will turn watery after a while. Even my hubby and son who are not keen eaters of rojak give their thumbs up. Click here for the Map Location.
Feedback from one of my readers, Yoong :
A general description — the sauce is thick and potent, topped with dried squid powder, roasted peanuts and dried shrimps. We’ve never had it like this before.
