There are plenty of great eateries in Bukit Mertajam, and Ah Meng Coffee Shop is one place where one can find cheap and good teatime snacks. Located along Jalan Pasar, this coffee shop is famous for its Rojak Orang Hitam Putih and the Li Guang Popiah.
The ingredients of the popiah come with flavourful turnip, fried bean curd, fried egg, prawn, bean sprout and crunchy lettuce. The popiah is rolled with chili and hoisin sweet sauce and topped with fried garlic oil, chili sauce and turnip-based gravy. It is then slice into four mouthful portion. It is simply delicious and satisfying. This popiah stall is always packed with customers dining in and walking in for take aways.
Another popular snack is the Orang Hitam Putih Rojak. Although there are a few rojak stalls around, this stall has remained the most talked about over the years.
The rojak consist of local fruits such as guava, pineapple, cucumber and jambu all mixed together in a thick homemade rojak sauce. A handful of crushed peanuts and sour plum powder is then sprinkled all over before serving! The portion of the smallest size is good enough for two. The “Rojak Orang Hitam Putih” is sold in neatly packed plastic containers.
Apart from the rojak and popiah, there is also the Assam Laksa. All the dishes form an ideal tea time snack, together with glasses of fruit juices and Kopi-O.
