Best Rojak in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Not to be confused with rojak mamak, Penang rojak is typically referred to the mixed fruit salad. The biggest novelty here is the “har koh” or better known as prawn/shrimp paste. It has to be thick, dark and flavourful, since watery version is going to make your rojak turns into a sad-looking snack. Of course, no rojak would be complete without a few sprinkles of chopped or crushed peanuts to fulfil this yummylicious fruity snack.

    B.M. RojakPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Otherwise known as Bukit Mertajam (hence the word “B.M.”) Pek Lang Rojak, this is the third must-try rojak stall in the Penang state. For the uninitiated, “Pek Lang” literally means “white man” in Hokkien. Like the two famous Bukit Mertajam’s rojak stalls, they also sell their own rojak sauce. Their sauce is exceptionally thick, and tastes even better if you add in “you tiao” (fried Chinese breadstick)!
    Tips

    Look out for the stall with yellow signboard at Kedai Kopi Bukit Mertajam.

    Things to expect

    Don’t be shy if you prefer your rojak to be spicier than usual.

    Best with

    Steamed Cup Rice at Hung Steam Cup Rice stall.
