Ministry of Rojak by Abdhus Salam Rojak @ Northpoint City in Yishun Singapore

Ministry of Rojak by Abdhus Salam Rojak @ Northpoint City in Yishun Singapore

Looking for things to eat in the sprawling Northpoint City mall in Yishun Singapore, I stumbled upon this Indian rojak stall at the old wing (north wing) beside the Subway and Kopitiam foodcourt. Northpoint City is a labyrinth with hundreds of food outlets but not many offer traditional street food fare, so I was pretty excited by this find.

Truth be told, the name Ministry of Rojak sounded a bit pompous and cliché (there are already various ministry of this or that food stalls / restaurants) but it was also what caught my attention first (so fancy names work lah). On the traditional open display shelves, there were slightly over a dozen types of rojak pieces with the usual suspects of fried doughy items, tofu, fish balls, fish cake, prawn fritters etc.

But, there were also hardcore items like this boiled beef lung that convinced me that this is a serious Indian rojak stall. I like it that they were sliced thick and I can feel the lung's sponginess just by looking at them 😅

Large squids. I like squid tentacles more than the body.

Fried prawn fritters.

More fried prawn fritters. You know by now that I love fried prawn fritters. This variety of small soft shell prawns is my favourite as I like the crisp - soft texture and it has the most natural prawny savoury sweet flavour.

Pick your choice of items, hand over your plate to the staff and he will give you a paper slip with your queue number. Return to your seat, come back to pay and collect your food when your queue number is flashed. Simple and efficient system.

The seating area is small and it is quite warm (even though it is an air conditioned mall). The mall is crowded and there is a lot of cooking going on (nowadays malls have more F & B outlets and less retail shops).

Every item was deep fried and chopped up to bite size, and served in a heap on a large plastic plate. It was not very photogenic 😂 The spicy dip was served in disposable plastic cups.

This plate of Indian rojak plus 4 teh (milk tea) costs around SGD35.

All the fried items tasted pretty good or normal (which is great as there is nothing bad 😛 ). Slightly crisp outside, natural flavours still retained.

We felt a slight thirst after all the fried food. There is no MSG used but thirst is natural with so much fried stuff.

Besides the fried items, the spicy dip is decisive in the popularity of Indian rojak stalls.

I like Ministry of Rojak's spicy dip - the sauce has just the right texture with soft nuttiness from almost dissolved peas. It has a nice balanced sweet spicy taste with pleasant fleeting spicy heat. (The sweetness and pastey texture came from mashed sweet potatoes.)

I also like it that the staff will gladly refill our empty dip cups with hot sauce, no questions asked. I like to smother every rojak piece with lots of sauce.

Information for you 👉 If you are in the north of Singapore, this is probably one of the best Indian rojak you can find. Ministry of Rojak has a few outlets in Singapore malls and the parent Abdhus Salam Rojak stall is still in Ayer Rajah hawker centre (the Indian rojak hub of Singapore).

Singapore Indian rojak is a uniquely Singapore heritage hawker dish not found anywhere else in the world. Please recommend me other good Indian rojak stalls in Singapore.
