The famous Rojak SS15 in Subang Jaya

I don’t usually like rojak, or pasembur as it’s referred to in the North. I don’t actively go seeking it but I’ll eat it if it’s good. This one is. It’s located at SS15 in Subang Jaya and it’s pretty well known. Heck, I’ve probably eaten it and forgotten. Heh.

Anyway, the queue for Rojak SS15 Subang Jaya is quite long. I was there in the afternoon and there were people queuing under the hot sun for a taste of this – it’s a perpetual line that never seems to end!

It’s actually a roadside stall and you only have four (4) options according to the menu:

  • Kosong (Plain) – RM 3
  • Telur (with egg) – RM 4
  • Sotong (with squid) – RM 4
  • Sotong & Telur (with squid and egg) – RM 4.50

I went for the one with all the bells and whistles (or with all the trimmings in food parley) – I like egg and squid and I don’t relish the thought of eating it plain. Rojak can best be described as a type of salad, with a peanut based sauce for the “dressing”.

This place is actually Fiona’s old stomping grounds – she was craving for the rojak and we headed there to eat this. She had the plain one and it actually tastes pretty good by itself.

However, I preferred mine with the additional squid and egg – well worth the RM 1 extra if you consider you get an entire egg and generous amounts of squid. I can’t vouch for the freshness of the squid but it’s the entire package that makes it good.

Rojak SS15 Subang Jaya has really good rojak sauce – it’s sweet and nutty. It’s also warm which adds to the overall appeal of this rojak. I liked it but I doubt I’ll be returning specifically to eat this. I’ll have it if I’m in the area though, it’s really good rojak and it’s served warm!

You can even eat it right beside the stall under the shade of the trees…and watch the never-ending queue in relative comfort. ;)

    • Yeah, I was surprised at the queue too. It never ends, that’s about the length of it when we were there.

      It’s rather good rojak though, but I doubt I’ll specifically go there. I’ll eat it if I’m in the area though. :)

  1. wah the queue is insane! i won’t queue if it’s scorching hot. plus i don’t really fancy pasembur. but the boyf love it to bits =.= maybe i’ll wait under the shade and watch him queuing :P

    • Yeah, probably goes to show how good the rojak is, or people would queue under the hot sun for good food, or…something…

      Heh! That’s a good way to go about it. Cheers Constance! :)

    • No worries Fiona! :)

      Pleasure is all mine. It’s really quite good rojak, I love it too.

      Glad you enjoyed it and have an awesome weekend! :D

  2. Yum! I love rojak, pasembur and all that nutty goodness!
    I don’t know if I have ever had it with squid though. Is that normal?

    Anyways, thanks for making me hungry in the middle of the night. :)

    • Heh. Yeah, I usually see mamak rojak stalls like this offering squid and egg as the usual add ons.

      I’m quite hungry now, looking at this myself.

      Cheers Lisa! :)

  3. Omigawd!!! The queue… You would not see me there. I am not blessed with that kind of saintly patience. LOL!!! That’s not the Penang fruit rojak kind of rojak eh? More like the Indian rojak or pasembur. Hmmm…when you come back, maybe we can drive to Bintangor for the rojak there. Maybe you’ve tried that before but we can still go. Love it!

    • Yeah, at least the queue moves reasonably fast. :)

      Rojak is pretty easy to make and prepare so it’ll only take long if one person decides to have a couple of packs to go instead of eating it there. Yup, this is Indian mamak style rojak – no fruits unlike the “usual” ones that’s around…but come to think of it I see more of this pasembur style rojak around instead of the ones made from fruits, probably due to where I stay.

      Yup, I’ve had the Bintangor rojak a couple of times, blogged about it and even thought you were with us during one of the road trips! We shall go and eat that again when I’m back.

      Cheers Arthur! :)

  4. I like the cendol and rojak there when i was studying in Subang (about 15 years ago) but the queue at that time wasn’t so long. At that time, the “stall” was still a “motosikal”. Even when i went to KL in 2005 to get my PR visa, i still asked my friend to fetch me there to have a try. Don’t expect the business is so so good now.

    • Nice! They’ve been around for a looong time eh?

      Yeah, I’ve heard that a couple of years back it was just a small portable stall. Remarkable that they’ve been going on so strong for so many years.

      Cheers bro! :)

  5. It still looks as yummy! I wonder if the sauce still has the same sweet twang as before, but I’m glad to know that they are still serving the same items after so long.

    I rarely go for it nowadays. It’s not that I don’t know where the stall is; it’s just that I can’t stand being in a long queue on a hot, sunny day – even though the trees provide ample shade.

    • Yup, the sauce is sweet alright. :)

      I like it but it can be cloying if you eat too much of it, but the same is also true of the fruit type rojak with the sweet (and sometimes spicy) black sauce.

      Keeping it simple, and the area is quite near a lot of institutions and housing areas, perhaps that’s one of the reasons they’re still around after so long.

      Heh! Yeah, I wouldn’t normally do that too, but if I’m in the area I don’t mind eating it again.

      Cheers Ciana! :)

      • Ah, dang, they’ve not lessen the sugar after all these years.

        I know what you mean about the fruit rojak; you should however give the Muar version a try if you’re ever in that town. I’m not sure if it’s the same as the one in Sibu.

        It has food frontage too. I should drag one of my Subang friends along when there’s a craving for it. Here’s a tip, though. If you’re ever going for it, try queuing up at the stall before noon. You might not have to wait for so long.

        • Nice! I’ll be sure to check that out if I’m in Muar.

          I plan to head to Johor one of this days for a road trip, and maybe swing down to Singapore while I’m at it. Heh.

          Thanks for the tip Ciana! :)

    • Indeed, the queue never stops – it’s just about that long all the time, new customers keep coming in and thus maintains the length of the line.

      It’s pretty good, but I wouldn’t drive to Subang Jaya for rojak. I’m not a big fan of rojak but for this one, I’ll eat it if I’m in the area. :)

  6. *scratches head* must be ‘addictive rojak’, and its hard to fight an addiction….
    but then again, higher population density = longer queues, just checkout the queues in India or mainland China!

    • Haha! True that, but the other stalls don’t have a lot of customers, except for the cendol one right beside it.

      I guess cendol goes well with rojak, especially on a hot day. :)

    • Yeah, it’s more like pasembur instead of the rojak that I usually associate with the word “rojak” – fruits in dark sauce, sometimes with a dash of chilli.

      This one is Indian mamak style with peanut sauce so it goes well with egg and squid, while putting those in a fruit rojak would be…interesting. ;)

    • Yeah, I think it’s a different stall, that one has a queue too, though nowhere near as long as this.

      I reckon cendol during a hot day would be good while waiting in line. :)

    • Nice! It wasn’t a long wait, just a long queue, unless you have someone getting loads of rojak to go.

      Yeah, I saw a lot of people eating the cendol while waiting in line too, we didn’t have that but next time I’ll go check it out when I’m in the area.

      Cheers bro! :)

  7. When you see lots of Chinese queuing for food sold or prepared by non Chinese, then that’s the sign that you must join the queue too….lol. There’s a high chance that the food is really good.

    True story :P

    • Heh! That’s an interesting theory.

      I’ll keep an eye out for situations like that and see if it’s good. There are queues at almost every stall in Singapore though, maybe coz of the population density.

      Cheers Nymphadora! :)
