Kueh Pie Tee is a popular Peranakan food in Singapore and Malaysia. The Peranakan cuisine has been described as a combination of Malay, Chinese and other unique blends. Peranakans are descendants of early Chinese immigrants who settled in the Malay Archipelago and British Malaya. Kueh is the Malay term as cake. Pie Tie is a thin crispy tart shell. The shell is usually filled with  braised turnips and carrot shreds, and topped with crushed peanuts and hard boiled egg bits. The Kueh Pie Tee is a perfect hors d'oeuvre for parties or family gatherings. I loved the braised turnips and carrots. At Ah Pa Rojak, the braised turnip mixture was perfect - the turnips and carrots were "crisp-tender" and the taste was sweet and savoury. The crispy pie tee or "top hat", braised turnip mixture with all the toppings were an impeccable combination, leading to gustatory sensation. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Popiah (薄餅) is a Hokkien/Teochew-style fresh spring roll in Singapore. The soft, thin paper-like popiah skin is made from wheat flour. It is an excellent hors d'oeuvre when you host parties at home. The sweet bean sauce, minced garlic (optional) and chilli (optional) are spread on the thin popiah skin. The braised turnips mixture, (identical to the ones used in Kueh Pie Tee), lettuce, egg, bean sprouts are added on the skin and rolled into a log shape. At Ah Pa Rojak, the popiah skin was thick. The size of the popiah skin might be big that resulted two layers of the skin wrapped around the ingredients. The braised turnip mixture was delicious and crisp-tender. When I compare Ah Pa Rojak with Qiji, the latter is still my favourite. (Food rating: 3/5)

Rojak is a popular traditional salad in Singapore. Rojak is a Malay word for mixture. The salad usually comprises fresh fruits and vegetables that mixes with prawn paste, sugar, lime juice, chilli and water. At Ah Pa Rojak, the Rojak mix includes cucumbers, pineapple cubes, turnips and fried dough fritters (you tiao). The salad is then generously sprinkled with roasted crushed peanuts that brought out the you will find cucumbers, pineapple, and dough fritters (you tiao). The salad is then generously drizzled with roasted crushed peanuts. (Food rating: 3/5)
