I recalled the wok hei was not thorough the last time i tried 4 years ago. Last weekend’s char kway teow ($3.5/4) had every strand that smells and tastes full of wok hei. You know the wok hei game is strong when it still taste excellent even after it turned cold. Each morsel is given the sweet fish sauce and soya sauce treatment and loaded with crispy pork lards and Chinese sausage that further enhance the fragrance. They can’t be bothered with “waste time” ingredients like fish cakes or prawns. I like that it is not overly wet and each strand of flat noodle is coated with remnants of the caramelized sauces and it is not overly sweet or jelat. Omg this could take over Zion Road as my most favourite CKT. I need to make a trip to Zion Road soon. Ok end of swooning. Now go back to work. #igivesecondchance

Despite the stall name, it's the Carrot Cake (from $2.50) that our Burpple Tastemakers are raving about. If you like your chai tow kway chunky and saucy, then this might just be the one for you. Burpple Tastemaker Amanda Liu loves how the carrot cake is cut into larger, chunky pieces, which gave her the luxury of choice for eating whole and cutting into smaller pieces on her own. On top of that, the sweet black sauce is well balanced, and the hawker is generous on both the pickled radish and eggs, making this one of her top choices for a hearty breakfast or a lighter lunch.

Finally I brought my ns mate @carl_holmberg to try the CKT . Currently The Stall is hand over to The Stall Owner Daughter who is my friend @chroniclesofgwennon. I can say It is up to the Standard of Her Father Cooking. Initially was thinking that nobody will take over the Family Business. It was Good that She took over the Business if the Legacy will be gone. I really Aspire & Respect her.

It’s not everyday that you see irregularly large chunks of carrot cake being stir fried together, and that’s one reason why I loved the ones from here (apart from the fact that it’s really cheap)!

Most stores would chop them up into tiny pieces to make it easy to pick up and chew on but I love how chunky these pieces are, giving you the luxury of having them whole or cut them up into smaller pieces.

Mixed with their sweet sauce concoction, chilli & a generous portion of caipoh (pickled radish) & eggs, you’re in for a simple yet satisfying dish to kick start your day, or munch on over lunch.


I especially like how the dish was on the moister side but still retains the wok-hei flavour. Not forgetting the pork lard, which was added to give it an extra crisp! Expect long queues throughout the day but it is definitely worth the wait.

Come early to avoid the queue!

1st dish at our 2nd stop on Amanda's #TastyTastemakerTour-- ever had Char Kuay Teow with Otah? Neither have I. Not big on the Otah but oh, the CKT. The daaaaamn CKT. So moist that you can't even pick it up in big amounts using your chopsticks. Lots of ingredients - we shared a plate between 6 of us & NOBODY ELSE eats hum (cockles) except me. Imagine my delight!

If I can get over my fear of oily food, I'd probably order this again. 😂

The char kway teow from Lai Heng leans towards the “wetter” version and they certainly didn’t scrimp on the ingredients with the usual suspects of blood cockles, Chinese sausage and fishcake all in this plate. What’s special about this place is that they also sell otah ($1) besides char kway teow and interestingly most people order a piece to eat with their fried noodles.

I am slightly bias towards the drier version that has a more distinct wok hei, but that’s just my personal preference and I am sure this version will have its fair share of supporters.

The Fried Kuay Teow (S$2.50/S$3.00) served by Lai Heng Fried Kuay Teow was slightly different from most Fried Kuay Teows that I have eaten in my life. This one over here is less dry than many others, but what is wonderful about it is that it captures that “wok hei” in the cooking process, but at the same time presents what people like about this local favourite: a mix of sweet and savoury notes.

Shunfu Mart has lots of good stuff, and this one here should be on this list too.


Watching plate after plate going by convinced us to try this moist CKT. Ohhh boy, did this hit the right spot! My favourite kind – this wet, slick mess was packed with cockles and lup cheong, and it only cost $2.50?!? Only qualm is that I ain't a yellow noodle fan and there was quite of lot of that on this plate. 😂 Add on one of their fat otahs ($1) for a nice spicy kick!

One of my favorite Char Kway Teow. Loved the distinctive flavor of wok hei. The generous amount of crunchy pork lard and bean sprouts added a heavenly flavor to the whole plate.
