Yong Xiang Carrot Cake : pan-fried Png Kueh and Soon Kueh

This was one of the stalls with a queue on a Sunday, serving the white and black version Fried Carrot Cake as well as pan-fried Png Kueh and Soon Kueh. My late Grandpa used to pan-fry the leftover Png Kueh and Soon Kueh for breakfast the next day. The pan-fried ones are equally enjoyable, it is also my personal favorite. 

I joined the queue and waited for a while before ordering. Most of the customers ordered the white Carrot Cake with their pan-fried Png Kueh and Soon Kueh and I did that too though I wanted the black Carrot Cake initially. I ordered the white Carrot Cake, a Soon Kueh and 2 pieces of Png Kueh. The Uncle that took my order asked, "Do you want to add an egg?" I nodded my head. The auntie that was doing the cooking will use the metal spatula to cut the Png Kueh and Soon Kueh into big pieces and pan-frying them on the hot pan before adding an egg then the chilli then cooked it a little longer before serving. 

My dining companion tried it and said, "The pan-fried Png Kueh and Soon Kueh are something special, it is an interesting choice for breakfast though not commonly found." The presentation was a little messy and not quite appealing but it was comforting, certain parts of those pieces were nicely crisped but still soft. 

My dining companion then took a mouthful of the white Carrot Cake and said, "It tasted quite ordinary, those pieces of carrot cake were quite soft with enough egg added for the eggy taste but could hardly taste the cai po."
