Singapore's Banana Leaf makes a mean rojak

Although I've been to Indonesia and Malaysia, I had never had a rojak salad before today's lunch at Farmer's Market. I'm now a convert to this unusual combo of pineapple, jicama, cucumber, fried tofu and spinach, topped with a spicy clear dressing studded with peanuts. Unlike other peanutty dishes from this area such as satay and gado-gado, the peanuts are pleasantly textured additions to the dressing rather than goopy peanut-butter spinoffs. I loved their spicy fried noodles the last time I was there, so this place is my new favorite at the Farmer's Market for a lunch with super-charged flavor.

I have eaten at many indian, thai, and indonesian restaurants. Let me tell you, Singapore's Bannana Leaf has got those spices nailed. This restaurant is FANTASTIC.

I love the Rojak salad (and your website)! It does have the perfect blend of tastes - sweet, sour, spicy, crunchy...absolutely delicious. Great posting - thanks.

I used to live across the street from Farmer's Market. This is what you do on a Friday evening/night. There are two of you. One orders a Rojak salad and the other a kabob plate with hummus and another side dish from the very good Lebanese joint in the market. You buy a pitcher of beer at the center bar and share in the gastronomical delight. I'm telling you, this is the ticket.
