Edgecumbe Road Pasembur “Rojak” got its name from the fact that the current owner, Ahmad Jamal’s paternal granduncle first started selling his “pasembor” on a pushcart near Edgecumbe Road in the 1960s. The business was later passed onto En. Ahmad’s father, before it was assumed by En. Ahmad himself as the 3rd-generation owner-chef of the brand-name. The stall has been located at Kompleks Makanan Persiaran Gurney since 1982. It’s been here over 34 years now, and the taste of the pasembor has not changed one bit - the original recipe, which blends sweet potatoes, tamarind and a secret blend of slices, was tongue-tinglingly delicious.
Pasembur - the Northern Malaysian (Penang, Kedah, Perlis) term for Indian rojak. Super-delicious.
