An average bowl of wanton noodles. The noodles were not overcooked, and was tossed in a savoury sauce. There was one fried wanton and 3 wantons in soup, slices of lean charsiew (the kind with red food colouring) and some veg. Decent, nothing outstanding, but I don’t think I would go for this unless other better options in Bukit Timah Market are unavailable.

They store owners had adjusted their opening hours, so catching them is always a treat! The wait can get quite long but surely that’s testament to their popularity. Ordered my favourite Penang char kway teow ($4) - the takeaway box retains heat surprisingly well, though the portion felt a tad smaller than usual.

This stall is a relatively new addition to the food centre - it only popped up last year, but has garnered quite a following! Their standard chicken rice ($3) features steamed chickened doused in thick soy sauce. I’d prefer the traditional flavoured rice over this plain rice, but the sauce gives plenty of flavour and the portions are very substantial!

Calling out all lovers of white chai tow kway (carrot cake). Westies would probably say that He Zhong Carrot Cake (02-185) at Bukit Timah Food Centre is one of the best stalls for carrot cake in the West.

Unlike many stalls these days, they still make their own carrot cake in a separate unit. For those that aren’t familiar, carrot cake contains no carrots but only radish. Prices start from $2.50 and servings of $3/4/5 are available.

Waiting times of up to 20 minutes aren’t uncommon during peak hours. When you dig in, you’ll understand why it’s so popular. It’s very unique in its own way. Unlike other stalls, it’s cooked and served in such a way that it resembles a chunky pancake.

Large rectangular blocks of steamed carrot cake are fried with chai poh (preserved radish) and a copious amount of egg batter is added while cooking to hold the blocks together. Blocks of carrot cake are stacked on top of each other before it’s served to you.

So what’s the taste profile like? Crispy on the outside, soft and springy on the inside. Very light and not too oily. A strong eggy and garlicky taste as a result of the amount of eggs and some garlic used in the dish. It hits all the right notes.

Took me surprisingly long to try this stall! It recently relocated from another part of the hawker centre. Loved how fragrant the water cress soup ($3.50) was - it came with many pieces of pork ribs, and plenty of wolf berries! The soup was flavourful and not overtly salty. The steamed pork patty with mushroom ($3.80) was also a really good buy and great for sharing!
