Curds were soft but thats not very noticeable unless you're really paying attention to it, chili was nice and the flavours come tgt well

But not crispy. That's very noob, they're inconsistent. I even went to ask other tables, just to make sure it's not me. Apparently they're just off today, it's "normally better". Well "normally" I aint at frigging nowhere in the middle of braddell, toa payoh, and caldecott.

Plus, for this level of food, they've got way too much attitude. I asked something about the food and they were very dismissive, being annoyed for no reason. The Aunty just seems to always be in a bad mood wtf

Not to mention the wait. Today, at 10am on a weekday, it was 15mins which was acceptable.

There's really no reason to travel to this ulu place and bear w the attitude when the food is inconsistent. Trust the 3.7 rating on google, it's that for a damn good reason

Specialist of the white version, this stall has been serving for over 70 years ever since husband-wife team Tay Hoe Seng and Ng Sock Cheng started making their own carrot cake.
Their daughters and 2nd generation owners still handmake the carrot cake, their painstaking efforts recognised with consecutive Michelin Bib Gourmand awards.
Reowned for their flat but super crisp rendition, the (open) secret here is their special chili, which really makes the dish stand out.
Beautifully fried, albeit more oily than elsewhere, you get lovely smoky savoury sweet spicy flavours in each bite.

More details:

Another stall with long queues and minimum 40 minutes waiting time. This stall sells carrot cake made by themselves. How can you tell? You will see bit of orangish carrots inside the fried carrot cake. Which factory made carrot cake still gives you real carrots instead of radish? Egg wise, normal. Not too generous but it’s there.

Word of advise - for those who do not like salty food, this is not for you. They use salty preserved turnip bits (Chye Poh) and because they are more generous with their Chye Poh, the dish is more salty than what I am used to. And do add the chilli because the plate with no chilli that I tried is inferior to the plate with chilli. Somehow the heat of the chilli sauce balances the saltiness of the Chye Poh. Also, do dine in there at the hawker center. The crispiness will be gone if you packet this for home consumption.

But I really wonder why the hype other than the fact the carrot cake contains real carrots. It’s good but not fantastic. Maybe I’ll come back and try it one more time just to be sure. Before I send it off to overhyped category.

One of the crispest Carrot cake I ever had!!! Queued for approx.40-50 mins along side with the hokkien mee and I would say, it is worth it. Probably should order >1 packets and the biggest portion to sin at one go 🥺

Rather unique carrot cake that tastes more like egg pancake because it is so crispy. I quite like it though it can be a little oily. Waiting time is long but you can order 1st ans come back later.
