Talk about Rojak and the folks in Bukit Mertajam will be fired up. Intense competition between a few famous ones and the locals seem to have their very own favorite stall of Rojak. BM Pek Lang Rojak (hereinafter referred to as "The White Clan"), Or Lang/ Orang Hock Rojak (The Black Clan), the market follower- Or Pek Lang Rojak (The Black-White Clan) as well as BM High School Rojak. All stalls seem to have their loyal fans supporting them over the years. The White Clan has a slightly better edge over others, due to its strategic location right smack in the BM town. Not only does the place sell Rojak but you could find one of the delicacies made popular in BM here too- Steamed Cup Rice. While we did not have the chance to try that for this round, we did manage to take a couple shots on the rice.
The White Clan's Rojak (Rm 6/ large) sees crispy Chinese Crullers, Jicama, Cucumber, raw Mangoes, Pineapples etc. Their home-made Rojak sauce has a balanced medley of sweet, savory and spicy notes. The distinctive Belacan flavor stands out either, complementing the fresh fruits perfectly. Sprinkles of crushed Peanuts added a crunchy, nutty texture to the concoction. However, we would prefer to have some Cuttlefish (went missing in our order). Nevertheless, it tops our list to be one of the must try delicacies in Bukit Mertajam.
