Not only does this stall serve delicious fried carrot cake ($2), it claims that its version is healthier, too. Besides using oil that’s lower in saturated fat, you can ask for bean sprouts to be added at no extra charge.
Indeed, the stall was very liberal with bean sprouts as well as chopped spring onions. The crunchy bean sprouts were a refreshing contrast with the grease in the dish. But the best part was the wok hei (smoky flavour) of the cakes. The kway was very well seared, and gave off a lovely, charred aroma.
Picking up the chunky pieces of kway was a breeze. Though they were sufficiently soft, they weren’t as smooth as we’d prefer. They were also light-handed with the seasoning, perhaps in keeping with the healthy mantra, but luckily, there was plenty of crunchy chai poh to provide some flavour. Order the chilli version for more kick.
