Though it was a picture of the white carrot cake that displayed on their signboard but i spotted a plate of black carrot cake was served to one of their customers.
The lady smiled at me when she saw me standing there waiting to order. I ordered a plate of $2 carrot cake without telling her my preference for white or black. She did not ask further though so i assumed the default order has to be white carrot cake. Self-service is expected so i waited there. My plate of carrot cake was ready in about 5 minutes. It was served with the chilli and chopped spring onion by the side. I was eager to have my first mouthful. As expected, it tasted just like the famous Fried Carrot Cake at Ang Mo Kio Central. The chilli tasted quite alike too. A reasonable guess is this stall and that famous stall must have been related somehow. I remember seeing this couple there when the usual lady was not around to man the wok.
The portion given was enough for $2. The pieces of carrot cake were nicely pan-fried and evenly coated with egg then fried it well to give it the desired crispiness. The taste was further enhanced by the preserved radish embedded in it.
If i have to compare, i still very much preference that particular stall over at Ang Mo Kio Central. This plate of fried carrot cake was nice but still not as nice as yet.
