Mention fruit rojak and the mixture of fruits with dark shrimp paste will definitely come into the mind. Personally, I was never really fond of fruit rojak since it practically tastes the same everywhere. However, my perception of this dish quickly changed when I tried the fruit rojak stall in front of Kedai Makanan Seng Lee at Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights.
The stall is operated by a couple who have been there for many years.
The long line of customers was a sure sign that their rojak is noteworthy. I ordered a plate (RM 5) which comes with cucumber, pineapple, papaya, water chestnut, raw mangoes and etc.
What makes their fruit rojak different is the generous amount of crushed peanuts and more importantly, the awesome taste of the shrimp paste. The paste was thick, rich with taste and delicious. I can’t begin to describe how wonderful it was.
The inclusion of you tiao was also something that I like. You can have either the crispy version of the soft version.
The prawn crackers was also crispy and nice. Trust me, a plate of this fruit rojak is enough to fill the stomach. Highly recommended.
The Char Kuey Teow (RM 5) at Seng Lee was also good. It is more moist compared to most of the Char Kuey Teow that I had tried.
The colour of the noodles are also much lighter as compared to the usual dark brown.
It does take some skills to whipped up a good plate of Char Kuey Teow and in this case, the uncle who fried them does it very well indeed. The noodles were not greasy and has a slight tinge of spicy taste in it.
If you happened to be around Damansara Heights, do drop by this coffee shop. Kedai Makanan Seng Lee is just situated right at the back of Hock Lee supermarket.
