Carrot Cake & Oyster Omelette (#01-28, Heng Carrot Cake)

5 Reviews

We also heard about Heng Carrot Cake, another iconic stall at Newton Food Centre which is on the Michelin Bib Gourmand. The stall offers both the white and black versions of carrot cake, and we went with the black version as we like the dark soya sauce.

We got a small $4 plate and the one thing that caught our eye was the really generous serving of fried eggs in this carrot cake dish. The proportion of eggs to carrot cake is almost close to 50:50 so this should be a go-to for those of us who love a lot of eggs with our carrot cake. We also think it is a good choice to go for the spicy version (if you are not afraid of spicy food) as we felt the carrot cake alone would be somewhat tasteless, and the spice adds a pretty nice flavour to the dish. That being said, the $4 serving is a little small for two persons in our opinion, and you might want to pay more if this is going to be your main dish.

One downside, however, is that this stall is really popular and you need to be prepared to wait really long for your food to be ready. We waited almost half an hour for our carrot cake but thankfully, we ordered other dishes in the meantime as well. 😅😅 Aside from that, the carrot cake was pretty great and we would be happy to try other dishes at the stall (such as their fried oyster)!
