Ministry Of Rojak By Abdhus Salam Rojak

We had Penang food for lunch that afternoon and looking around, I was amused by a signboard “Ministry of Rojak”.

Chicken Cracklings with Torch Ginger Flower Rojak Dressing Recipe Inspired By Black Nut

Jake invited Paul and I to Black Nut Bar. We had a table groaning with comestibles like “Awesome Threesome”, nothing kinky here, just the name for a skinny pizza with 3 al funghi that’s all, but I was particularly charmed by the Rojak Chicken Cracklins with Torch Flower marinade. “Simi si torch frau-er?” “Aiyah!
