Rojak SS15 Subang Jaya

Returning back to Subang Jaya that weekend, especially the Taylors College area bought back many fond memories; the care free life of a college student, the cyber cafe, the eateries and particularly the SS15 Indian Rojak.

As i familiarise myself with the stall and the queue (since it moved from a van to a makeshift stall that looks more like a bus stop, i realised it has been many years since i had queue up for this. Counting with my fingers (which took quite a while too), it was close to 8 years!

Am i really getting old?

In terms of taste buds and cravings for Indian rojak, i don't think so.

There's a signboard now!

It used to be Cendol and Rojak together. With the crazy queue ahead, i think a bowl of cendol to quench the thirst would be a more feasible approach (blame the language on my studies, when did food ever become feasible?) Basically it made sense to drench your throat in a sweet concoction laced with gula melaka, santan and green worms.

It is coming soon, your turn is up, what do you want?

Like how we order burgers in Australia, the whole lot please, sotong and egg.

The finale; indian rojak. The sauce is ultimately what people come back for, the fried fritters and finely sliced cucumbers tasted regular.

Still just as good as 8 years ago!

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars, so what if the queue is long, worth it for an afternoon snack.

Opposite the Shell station, abit further up. Other landmarks include the KFC and the fruit stalls, otherwise i am sure the throngs of college students around the area can help you.

is it open at night or on weekends? for those of us who slave in downtown kl, too far away to travel to subang on a weekday for lunch.
yeah, i think we all have fond memories of the food we enjoyed while we were in college or university. i miss the nasi kandar at a penang outlet that i haven't returned to since 1999!

I used to remember how long the queue was during lunch time. And I also used to remember how much they sell by seeing the amount of hard boiled eggs in a few buckets.

But that was more than 3 years ago. Haven't had any chance of going back lately...

alamak!!! my fav rojak and cendol in SS15??? It really reminds me of my days in INTI College :) how I used to walk from my house in SS15/5D all the way.. braving the scorching sun just for a refreshing bowl of cendol!! lol...
I noticed that people are still queueing (a long one)... everytime I wanna stop to satisfy my crave, my wife complained of the heat and the queue... what a turn off!!! Takpe.. sabar aje la... wait till she gives birth!

You are the rare one who can lay claim to comment with feasible authority that after all of 8 years the taste is still 4 over 5

Bravo to history future !

love those fritters, esp if they remain crunchy even though doused with those thick, spicy and sweet gravy.

One day I was eating at Pan's Bakery just opposite this rojak stall.. really shocking to see the queue lol. From the moment I entered Pan's Bakery, until I finished my meal 2 hours later, the queue's length was still the same!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

vkeong: yeah thats abt rite..u hav to get the right moment where the queue is down to like 5 ppl..but thats the closest u will get..
