About

In Japan, there's a restaurant where patrons buy food for those that come after them and consume the food bought by those before them. We found this concept unique and interesting and plan to take it to the next level. Introducing Rojak, the app that lets you order food and swap it with someone else's order. Behind Rojak is an algorithm that decides how to swap the food. To make this algorithm, we take into account the dietary requirements of our customers, halal food, vegetarian food or no nuts and no beans. At the same time, we try to swap for food of the same price and we swap for food that is far from the user's race as much as possible. The first step in understanding culture is through food. When you visit a foreign country, the first thing you experience is food. Singaporeans are bound together by our love of food, whether it's Chilli Crab or Nasi Lemak and food is a good way to gain an understanding of other cultures. In our modern society, we don't often consume food from other cultures. Rojak helps provide a first step to understanding other races or cultures by experiencing their food. Rojak is not limited to just food. Rojak is an experiment in the sharing of cultural values. If the idea works out, we can extend Rojak to homestays and other cultural items such as games or paintings.
