We waited 45mins for our carrot cake. We were happy that there isn’t any queue but little did we know that they have a ‘invisible’ queue where the owner takes order on a note book. The people here made their own carrot (radish) cake. The carrot cake are pan-fried together with chilli paste till it’s crispy on the surface (like pancake) 》$4 / Large

They truly deserved the awards. One of the best carrot cake I have tasted. They made their own carrot cake, cut into cubes and fried with eggs. Reasonable price at $2, $3 and $4.

Every time we ate the carrot cake, it was cooked to the same taste and texture. Crispy on top and soft below, it tastes especially good fried with its chilli.
Good that the stall has maintained its price range of $2-4 despite high popularity. But beside maintaining its quality, the long wait for it has also been consistent. Expect 30 mins on a weekday off-peak and over an hour outside of it.

This plate of fried carrot cake is unlike your normal ones. As you can see, the carrot cakes are fried in a way that it's served with the carrot cakes in these 'circular' shapes and not separated. Idk how to appreciate this crispy version. Maybe that's why they are included in Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide 2016.

But I make an exception for the one I grew up eating from Geylang East, which sadly doesn't exist anymore since the uncle is no longer around 😔 I haven't found other white versions that I fancy, until I came on @Burpple's recent #TastyTastemakerTour, and got introduced to one of Toa Payoh's best offerings through @jiaknonstop.
:
The egg was fried crisp thin, layered over the moist carrot cake that's handmade from scratch - yes, with real carrot in the mixture! That bit of authenticity really makes a difference. No wonder it's one of the 17 recipients of the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand 2016 hawker stalls.
:
Prices are set at $2/3/4 portions. Be informed that the waiting time is 45 mins to 1 hour (or even longer), which we didn't have to bear during the tour thanks to #Burpple team members who arrived earlier to make the orders! I'd love to bring my parents here to compare with the version we used to have, though I'm not sure if they'll be keen on the long wait...

Love the crisp exterior holding moist soft pieces of carrot cakes while a layer a Chili is spread over according to your preference. Only available in the white version, it still garners huge fans with now the usual 45 minutes to 1 hour of wait. Pair it with a cup of Black and White and your Saturday is made.
If this is the kind of carrot cake you really love, try a similar one at Lorong Ah Soo, Hainanese Village Market.

Located in a humble hawker centre, it's truly a hidden gem. Crispy outer, soft inside, and that sweet chilli paste on top? 😍😍 naizzz. And oh! Did i mention it's only $3.00 per portion? FYI, that's the avg price of carrot cake here. So, why opt for mundane carrot cake when u can have micherlin-guide one on the same price! 😂

Thanks to @burpple [@that_dex @rainraineeataway] we get to skip the 45mins queue! ✌😏

Worthy receipent of Bib Gourmand 2016! I wish I could say I discovered this before Michelin, or I know of a better carrot cake that no one else knew, but I've to concede and concur with them.
🔸
Super love the top layer that is crispy but still crumbly, with enough umami (but not over) from the chye poh and just a little fire from the chilli sauce that had been integrated with the crispy fried egg. Contrast this texture with the soft radish cake beneath that crisp, and you have crispiness and mushiness all in a single mouthful.
🔸
The waiting time is 45 mins to 1.5 hours. But many thanks to @that_dex and @rainraineeataway for reaching there an hour in advance so that we need not wait! Feel so pampered during the #TastyTastemakerTour, thank you!

Whether you prefer it black with lots of sweet sauce or white, crispy with loads of chilli, it is an integral part of all Singaporean breakfast.
This one in particular is spectacular! Definitely worth the wait.
An amalgamation of fragrant "Chye Poh"and soft homemade carrot cake pieces, with each individual piece wrapped in egg and slow fried to achieve its thin crispy layer.
Instead of the usual sambal chilli on the side, this store manages to panfry the chilli sauce onto the crispy side which gives it a nice red tinge of color.
It's light, it's crispy and oily enough to fulfill my Singaporean breakfast belly. At $2-$4 a plate what the hell are you waiting for other then a delicious plate of carrot cake. It's a top contender!

Not for the impatient - this carrot cake demands at least a good 40-mins wait (nothing less) and the auntie will tell you to not order if you can't wait 🌚 however if you do have the patience, have it there (not takeaway) and it is really delicious! The edges are nicely fried to crisp, while still retaining the softness and moisture of the kueh. The generous spread of chillies is definitely another key for its fame 👌🏻 #burpplecheapngood

In my humble opinion, this is by far one of the best Fried Carrot Cakes that one can find here in Singapore. The way it is prepared is slightly different from conventional methods of frying the raw carrot cake. The individual pieces of carrot cake are coated with a nice batter of beaten egg. The top layer of this 'paste' is fried till crispy and coated with a generous layer of chili paste. Sprinkled with spring onion and served, the flavors combined with the crisp texture make for a unique and yummy dish! At the lowest priced portion at $2/- a pop...it's a must try I guess. Only tricky part is the long wait...5/5

I'm not, so before that, I had a soy bean drink, my fav black carrot cake from next door and a plate of hokkien mee. only then did this plate arrive.

sometimes it's just all about patience, but if you ask me, it's not worth the wait.
