We're still on Bukit Timah Food Centre. I just found out that He Zhong Carrot Cake has been around for more than 30 years. Anyway, for those who're not familiar with the Chinese carrot cake, note that 'carrot' here doesn't refer to the orange root vegetable, but instead it refers to radish which is loosely translated as 'white carrot' from Chinese. This carrot cake is made of rice flour and shredded turnips.
Carrot Cake (Medium) S$3.00
As the dish was brought to the table, the distinct aroma of fried carrot cake wafted through the air and stimulated my appetite. To my surprise, the carrot cake was stir-fried with a lot of eggs that it looked like an omelette I never encountered before. It wasn't too oily, and the carrot cake was pretty firm although it would be nicer if it were to be a bit more salty. The amount of the slightly sweet and crunchy chye poh (lit. preserved radish) bits weren't disappointing either.
Pika's advice: The carrot cake comes in three different sizes. Get the small (S$2.00) serving if you're a light eater. If you're those with big appetite, I'm sure the large (S$5.00) serving won't disappoint.
