Hoover Rojak (Whampoa Drive)

If you are 1) not eating alone and 2) wish to try the popular stalls at Whampoa Drive Food Centre, I suggest you get one person into each queue because the queues can get a little long. The Balestier Road Hoover Rojak and the famous duck rice are just next to each other. 

I opted for the $3 Rojak. You could also order the $4 or $5 portion. First impression is that they give a lot of rojak sauce. If you request for chilli to be added, be mindful that the chilli sauce is a little spicier than usual. The sauce is one of the best rojak sauces i have tried. The addition of jellyfish was interesting but you had to make an effort to look through the sauce.

The utter letdown of this dish, however, was the fact that the taupok and the youtiao were not grilled on the spot. They were just left in a heap and served together with the sauce. This resulted in the dish being cold and a little soggy.
