Yom Yom Rojak Popiah

Adorned with a bright red and orange signboard, Yom Yom Rojak Popiah stands out among its surrounding stalls – and for good reason. Its simple menu revolves around ‘local delights’, peddling homemade popiah, traditional and white vegetarian rojak, as well as you tiao rojak. Additional items include fried you tiao, tau pok pau, century egg (with the option to add ginger) and fried cuttlefish.

The stall is run by a loveable elderly man, who will gladly engage you in conversation as you wait for your meal. Watch as he makes the popiah ($1.80 for five pieces), containing generous portions of steamed grated turnip, carrots and eggs – all covered with a heap of shaved peanuts.

I like that the popiah doesn’t fall apart easily when I pick it up, with the pieces staying intact even as I held it up in the air. The skin isn’t too thick, allowing the ingredients within to shine. The skin also doesn’t become soggy with time, which is something that’s usually lamentable about other popiahs.

The traditional rojak ($4.50), however, is nothing to shout about. Comprising a good mix of fruits, fried you tiao, fried beancurd and pieces of cucumber soaked in a layer of savoury-sweet sauce, the rojak is regrettably rather ordinary. 

Whilst I wasn’t a fan of the rojak, I would say that Yom Yom’s popiah makes it well worth a visit to this stall.
