How many times would you see people lining up at a small roadside stall? If you think about it, not that often. However, if this happens on a daily basis, you know you have got to get your hand on whatever product this stall is selling. If you pass by this sight at the roadside of Macallum Street, then pull over quickly because you are actually in the domain of Hock Seng Rojak King.

Hock Seng Rojak King is a small family business stall that pairs rojak with their own gooey Malt Sugar Paste. They’ve been around in the neighbourhood for over 40 years. The stall will usually have 20 customers lined up even before they open the stall. In fact, customers are willing to wait in line for an hour just to get a bowl of this Rojak.

You can choose from 3 different sizes of rojak with 3 different price points. Upon ordering, you will get a mixed bowl of fruits, fritters, and cuttlefish generously topped with thick maltose like prawn sauce and sprinkled with fragrant grilled small shrimp.

For All Rojak Lovers In Penang
For those of you with a sweet tooth, this Rojak is definitely for you. It’s exactly like chocolate fondue but Asian style. If the sauce is too thick for you, just wait a little bit for the sauce to rest and water down. This makes it easier for you to enjoy. Meanwhile, as part of a responsible community, make sure to practice social distancing while waiting in line. Thanks for reading!
