Lim Hai Sheng Cooked Food 林海盛熟食 – Teochew Style Fried Carrot Cake

Those residing in Ang Mo Kio are probably very familiar with this popular carrot cake stall at the hawker centre in Ang Mo Kio Central that only sells the white crispy version. It is located next to my favourite drinks stall (read my previous review here) that serves up one of the best home-made ice lemon teas. Carrot cake + ice lemon tea = BLISS 🙂

What I like about their carrot cake is that every slab is generously enveloped in eggs. The exterior is pan-fried to perfection while the interior remains soft and moist. This stall makes and steams its own carrot cake instead of using factory-made ones. A hefty amount of chye poh (preserved radish) is also used so every bite boasts of a nice eggy flavour with a lovely crunch from the salty radish bits. The home-made special chilli paste has the right amount of spice and goes really well with the carrot cake. I just like breaking the slabs into smaller bits and mix them up with the chilli and spring onions. Best of all, this is not overly greasy as compared to others. Vegetable oil is used here which is a healthier alternative. This carrot cake is definitely worth trying!
