Tang Tea House - Rojak

So we're back at one of our favourite makan joints - Tang Tea House!
A wide array of food choices and accessible location in the East means we always head back here when we can for some good food and good times.

Today we try a crowd favourite. Something that seems so simple to make but you'd be surprised at how difficult it is to execute a good plate of Rojak.

Rojak with Century Egg ($5.00)
How can anyone resist a plate of Rojak?
There's just something about it that even if you're not the biggest fan, you're still going to take a bite or two if there's a plate of it in front of you.

My favourite part about Rojak (and I'm guessing it's the same for many of you too) is the You Char Kway that comes along with it. And it's always the first to finish and always not enough! That's why I sometimes order a whole plate of just You Char Kway (yes you can do that) but then again sometimes it's nice to have a little variety right?

Well anyways, I personally feel that they're a little stingy with the Char Kway here.

Taste-wise, it's a little less tangy than some other places we've had Rojak. Maybe less Asam water used?
Not too spicy but you can always ask for more chili if you like.

And of course, you don't have to have the Century Egg if you don't fancy it. You can always swap it out for some Sotong Kering if that's your thing. But I do have to say that Century Eggs do seem to be increasingly popular even among the younger crowds.

Adam's Verdict:
Rojak with Century Egg 2.5/5

Maryah's Verdict:
Rojak with Century Egg 3/5 

Dad's Verdict:
Rojak with Century Egg 3/5 

Mum's Verdict:
Rojak with Century Egg 4/5

I remember there used to be a different stall selling Rojak at Tang Tea House but I guess they've moved on.
Guess this stall will have to do for now :)

  1. The portion for the rojak seems so little for $5. But it looks nice.. just wondering do.u have any recommendations other than tang tea house.. where to find different kinds of rojak..eg rojak sotong and rojak
    buah? Because its so difficult to find one. Thanks.
    Ps: ur blog is great and useful for food lovers :)

    1. Hi there! Thanks for your comment!!

      Nowadays there's quite a lot of places which offer Rojak Petis / Rojak Buah etc.
      I know of a few places like Tang Tea House and also eating houses like Mr Teh Tarik (Changi Village) and even Al Azhar (Tampines) which have a small stall offering Rojak!

      Unfortunately, most of them don't really have official Halal certification so it's really up to individual on that :)
      Let us know if you chance upon any other good Rojak places okay!

  2. Hey adam. Sorry if it sounds rude. But the person selling rojak at al azhar tampines is an indian muslim man. So i dont think he needs a halal certificate. Im sure he knows whats halal and whats not before he even opened the stall. Anw , the rojak there is simply superb. U should try. Assalamualaikum and have fun blogging :)

    1. Salam Abdul!

      Please there is nothing rude at all about your comment :)

      And I do know of the gentleman you are speaking about! In fact, I have ordered his Rojak before too!
      And I agree that indeed even though he does not have a certificate many people would still accept this as Halalal Thoyibban. This seems to be more and more wide accepted nowadays at many eateries and even bakeries too. In the end, it is our own individual responsibility as Muslims to ascertain and be comfortable that the food we are consuming is Halal :)

      Thanks for your comment and hope to have the rojak again soon!
