Fruit Rojak, Medan Selera Tanjung Emas

Now that lunch has been settled and wanting to kill two birds with one stone, Teochew Mama drove straight to Tanjung for me to slip into my photography mode and to the shop where we once always have had our irregular fix.



All of us had forgotten that it was in the middle of the lunch hour when we arrived but thankfully, there was a vacant table right in front of the stall. The lady boss waited for us to be comfortably seated before swinging by for the order, and didn't take long to bring the prepared order to the table.

Ta-da!



The famous Muar fruit rojak (Small portion, RM 2.50)

It still carried the same taste to it, with the sauce not overpowering the overall dish and the sugar used, a tablespoon too much. The only problem I had was with the drink; the orange juice I had ordered was dilated with water, and there was no taste of the frothy orange.

Teochew Mama and Tony both agreed that this particular plate carried a different, unique taste to the fruit rojak we can find in the city.

Like with all F&B outlets, the best time to be there is always before the lunch-hour crowd or after them. If you're too lazy to look at the signboard, just watch for the sole Chinese lady clad in an apron.

If you're not in a rush, you can always head off to the jetty (which is within walking distance) and take the time off to enjoy the sea view and maybe, catch a glimpse of an orange building that is the identity of the Muar town or take a picture of the durian monument. =D

  1. Can't remember when was my last in Muar. Probably ages ago. If I should by, will try this reasonably priced fruit rojak which is my fav.

    1. Nava, it took me almost a decade to head down to Muar again, too. I guess the hustles and bustles of the city don't quite allow us to visit small towns as often as we want. =(

  2. I'll go for the durian monument, since durian season is starting! ;)

    I'm not a huge fan of rojak and your description of the OJ doesn't inspire me but worth a trip! :D

    1. But durians are heaty, Huai Bin. You can't eat too much of it if you don't have any mangosteens on hand. =D

      I'm afraid to say that the trip wasn't worth it, came back feeling worse than I've ever had. =(

  3. I just had rojak the other day; one of my students is running a rojak stall & invited us there. That being said, I've never tried fruit rojak....

    1. You should give fruit rojak a try, Shirley; it has a different taste to the rojak we're used to seeing altogether. Sweet but not teeth-freezing, salty but not hair-whitening. xD

    1. When you're there, cquek, you have to sample all of the Muar's famous dishes. It's really tasty. =D

    1. I'll admit that I didn't fancy fruit rojaks as a young girl, too, Sean. I guess the sour taste that the pineapple shooed me away back then. Hmm, how about the rojak with egg and squids? There's a famous one in SS15, near Herbs & Food and Subang Square, that you might want to give a try. =)

      I'm working the issues out as we speak, am hoping that it'll be for the best. *crosses fingers*
