Rojak, in Malay means “eclectic mix”. Whether to call it a local spin of salad or a fruit salad is up to you, but its addictive sauce and fresh ingredients make for a very mouth-watering experience! While there is an Indian version of Rojak, Hoover Rojak serves the Chinese version, which is different! You will find some unique ingredients in it such as jellyfish, century egg, and bunga kantan (torch ginger flower buds).

Chey Sua Carrot Cake only has white carrot cake, so if you’re #team black carrot cake, it’s time to try something new! Other than their distinct flat shape being different from other carrot cake stalls, they actually use carrots and not radish. Even their chilli is handmade!

Who says this dish can only be eaten during Dumpling Festival? Sometimes you’ll just crave the sticky, indulgent goodness of Bak Chang, and what better place to have it other than Hoo Kee Bak Chang? They only use lean pork in their dumplings and the glutinous rice is very soft & nicely flavoured!

Each bowl is cooked-to-order and fried individually.

You might be wondering what makes Hainanese curry puffs so special. The difference is, they use rempah chilli paste, or as the owner calls it, ‘Baba-style’ chilli paste, in its filling. The rempah that Rolina uses is made fresh every single day! You’ll find that Hainanese curry puffs are also thinner, as the focus is on the filling.

Ah, frog porridge. Although it is a common supper dish, there are some who get frightened by the word “frog”. However, you’ll find that just one bite of Eminent’s Frog Porridge will send you straight to food heaven! The rich, umami sauce that is paired with the frog dish makes it a perfect match with plain porridge! It’s something you definitely must try.
