While we have had many variants of the XO Sauce Fried Carrot Cake at other Chinese casual dining restaurants, Guan Dynasty’s rendition is probably one that we found to be less greasy and slightly lighter in flavour than most that we had tried. The chunks of carrot cake come all springy and bouncy, void from any undesirable stench of overused oil. it also came with a slight hint of savouriness and smokiness from the stir-frying; one could also detect the fibrous texture of the radish used for the carrot cake in each morsel. Stir-fried with other ingredients such as egg and bean sprouts, the other elements provided a flavour contrast as well as a bit of crunch to the XO Sauce Fried Carrot Cake.
