Toa Payoh Rojak - Not in Toa Payoh @ Old Airport Road Hawker Centre [Near Dakota MRT Station]

Some have declared this to be the best rojak you can ever find in Singapore and its fame can be rightfully judged by the number of reputable accolades pasted at the stall! 

It was a long while since my last visit and just to warn you, the location of the stall wasn't even at Toa Payoh! So don't bother making your trip there! However, in case you are already there, you can check out another famous rojak stall by the name of Soon Heng at Gourmet Paradise Food Court, within HDB Hub Toa Payoh! 

Ordering wasn't in the conventional way; you take a queue number, make your order, wait for the number to appear on the LED display and collect the rojak. In event that there are too many orders, you would wait for the queue number to appear before making your order and then wait for the rojak to be made. 

On one hand, i was dumbfounded by the serving size on the plate as i ordered a medium (S$4) although on the other hand, I was so glad i didn't insist on having the smallest serving as we had a heavy lunch before this.

Nevertheless, you have your typical mix of fresh rojak ingredients and in my first bite, i can taste the differences it has over its competitors; the richness of the light-coloured sauce and the fact that it wasn't cloyingly sweet!

The water spinach, which wasn't as commonly seen in rojaks nowadays, was included in the mix and surprisingly quite palatable (big thank, obviously, to the rojak sauce). Aside from my grievance on the serving size, i thought the fried stuff like dough fritters and tau pok can be a notch crispier.
