Penang Rojak Poh Kee in Yulek Taman Cheras
We are a big fan of Yulek or Taman Cheras Wantan Mee. We usually visit the restaurant once a month during weekdays. During weekends, you can find a motorbike stall selling Penang rojak called Poh Kee. The uncle told us that he will parked opposite Yulek Wantan Mee on weekends and near Public Bank Taman Cheras on weekdays.
We haven’t blog much about Penang Rojak or fruits rojak as we didn’t have a good one for years. We had a little conversation with him as he prepares our Penang Rojak. The uncle is from Penang and he told us not many people selling Penang Rojak anymore due to high cost and long hours.
The ingredients of Penang rojak is sliced cucumber, pineapple, green mango, jicama (sengkuang), crushed peanuts and deep fried cracker (sometimes it comes with prawns). It will be added with black prawn paste and chili paste and stirred it until all the ingredients are coated with the paste.
For the Penang Rojak, it is RM 6.00 for small and RM 7.00 for big portion. If you want to separate the paste, you have to add on RM 1.00. We ordered the big portion for RM 7.00
We told the uncle we will be taking some photos of his Penang rojak and he was adding the prawn paste and nuts like no tomorrow. We haven’t seen a stall that is so generous with the prawn paste and that’s why its looks so good on picture.
The Penang rojak taste is quite dependent on the black prawn paste. You don’t get generous amount of the prawn paste anymore due to its high cost. Of course, the fruits play its part in the Penang Rojak. You get the texture of the fruits and the crunchy texture of the cracker and nuts. The paste is usually thick and sticky. We always prefer to add on the cracker. With the added chilli sauce, it gives the spicy after taste which will spice up your taste palette. That is why Penang rojak is so tasty if it is made right.

For your information, we never introduced ourselves as influencers or bloggers to any stalls or restaurants except it is a sponsored or paid review. If we want to dine in a place as blogger, we will contact the owner before we visited them but we rarely do that. We do like to discover places on our own or with our families or friends. We do have our own ‘makan gang’ and we go eat around. The issue is we didn’t have time to blog all the places we went. We will be introducing more restaurants in Kuala Lumpur in this upcoming few months. Thank you for reading and the support.
