This brightly lit corner stall sees an unending stream of customers, all eager to get their hands on the only item on the menu — White Carrot Cake (from $2). He Zhong Carrot Cake steams and handmakes their carrot cakes instead of having it mass produced in a factory. Regulars love that, and the fact that it is "generously studded with crunchy chye poh, fragrant and held together with eggy goodness", as Tastemaker Zhihui Lim puts it. Despite the incredibly crispy layer found on rival Seng Kee's carrot cake, our Tastemakers were won over by He Zhong's more flavourful version. Tastemaker Marc T. claims that it still tastes as good as he remembers from his childhood, with every bite full of texture and downright flavourful. Be sure to follow Zhihui's advice and add on the sambal chilli on the side — it packs a punch!
Avg Price: $5 per person
