Fried Carrot Cake
Review (12)
This Carrot Cake stall in Chomp Chomp Food Centre is easy to recognize. The name of the shop is essentially just called "Carrot Cake 菜頭粿", the name of the dish it serves. In addition, this stall is located at the right most corner of the entrance. With its distinctive white signboard (compared to the other stalls with colourful signboard, this stall's signboard stands out like a thorn among the roses. It would hard to miss this stall. Unlike the name of the dish, Carrot Cake 菜頭粿 neither uses any carrot nor does it looks or taste like a cake. Instead, Carrot Cake is essentially steamed radish mixed with flour, usually fried with garlic, preserved radish (chye poh) and egg, and then garnished with spring onions. In Singapore, the Carrot Cake comes in two variety; either white or black. The difference between them is that for the latter, sweet black sauce is added. Carrot Cake 菜頭粿 sells fried White or Black Carrot Cake and Oyster Omelette. It has been said that this stall is more well known for its fried White Carrot Cake and Oyster Omelette.Black Carrot Cake $5We ordered a plate of Black Carrot Cake $5. Their Carrot Cakes come in either $3, $4 or $5. The food was served to us 20 minutes after we place our orders. Black Carrot Cake $5Black Carrot Cake $5As the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. The appearance of the Black Carrot Cake does not justify the taste. Prawns was fried together with the Black Carrot Cake. The Black Carrot Cake was quite good and well fried. Each piece of carrot cake was well coated with flavour. They were fragrant and had the right sweetness level. In addition, there were plenty of chye poh (salty), such that each bite would stimulate your sense as the saltiness and sweetness tease your taste bud.Other than being sweeter, the Black Carrot Cake is normally not as crispy as the White Carrot Cake due to the addition of the black sauce.Carrot Cake 菜頭粿 (Chomp Chomp Food Centre)#01-36 Chomp Chomp Food Centre20 Kensington Park Road, SerangoonSingapore 557269Opening Hours: Daily 530 pm to 12 midnight Closed on alternate TuesdayView FoodieFC's Singapore Food Map in a larger map continue reading

At $5, the portion of this white carrot cake is reasonable and it is also reasonably priced. The white carrot is soft and moist and slightly oily. The proportion of the eggs and carrot is just right and it goes well together. It is not a must try though as there is nothing special about it. continue reading

Carrot cake is a really delicious and fragrant singaporean dish that most if not all hawker centres would have at one of their stalls. This carrot cake at Chomp Chomp is really not too bad and it is definitely fragrant and can be smelled in the air when one is miles away. Love the amount of fried egg that the cook used and the chilli is soooooo good! The black version is not too bad too! continue reading

This is the traditional style/ singaporean style of fried carrot cake unlike the Hong Kong style fried carrot cake. I still prefer this type of fried carrot cake compared to Hong Kong style. There are two types of fried carrot cake- either fried it with black sauce or no black thick sauce. I've ordered the white version without black sauce. Saltness level is just nice for me and it's not oily. Good "wok hei" makes the carrot cake and eggs more fragrant too. continue reading

I love eating carrot cakes, especially the white carrot cakes since it is where I can taste more of the eggs and the carrot cake itself. I ordered one plate of white carrot cake from this stall and my stomach is rumbling as I was queueing and waiting as I could smell the rich smell of carrot cake as the uncle is frying it. This stall also add prawns to the carrot cake which is an interesting twist to the dish. The prawns are very qq and fresh. As for the carrot cake, it is soft and yet not too lumpy and it is nicely coated with egg. Not too salty as well and it taste great on its own without chilli. continue reading
