Don’t you like it when you don’t have to squeeze the lime? because, I do.

But honestly even if I have to squeeze the lime myself for this, I would, because it’s worth it.

I only started liking Mee Siam recently after having this. The beehoon was nicely soaked with gravy, every mouthful is what I would say hitting the right spot.

Do you like your carrot cake black, white or mix? I usually go for white because of the slightly crispy layer of egg but also mix if i cant decide. ⁣

Mix $5

If you’re at Ghim Moh, check out Tom’s City Zoom Mee Pok Tar (01-11). This stall sells fish chor mee (鱼脞面; as according to the Chinese wording of the signboard) as everything here’s served with fish. Fish ball, fish cake, fried fish dumpling and fried fish flakes served with mee pok that’s mixed well with chilli and vinegar. You get some lettuce for garnish. All these for $3.50 or $4.

I always have this as takeaway so I can’t enjoy this dish in its fullest glory. Nevertheless, the strongest components of the dish were the springy fish balls, crunchy fried fish dumplings and the flavourful fish cakes since they put leek in the fish cake.

One thing I really like about the noodles here is that it doesn’t become extremely soggy even when you have it as takeaway. It has a rather nice texture. But what’s great is that the noodles are well coated with the umami-filled chilli sauce and vinegar. And you can help yourself to the chilli padi. What a flavourful breakfast to begin with.

My only gripe is the lack of lard bits that I would very much prefer for extra texture and flavour.

The stall owner is a fine example of a hawkerpreneur. Don’t go too late as they open early and sell out rather fast.

The black carrot cake at ghim moh is not overly sweet, with a hint of chilli, to balance the taste.
While the white carrot cake, chunky pieces cooked together with Chai poh with the outer Crispy. $6 ($3 for each ).

Checked out Teck Hin Delicacies (01-30) at Ghim Moh and for $2, it is very good value.

Like yin and yang, carrot cake is a complex duality comprised of two contrastedly different but familiar sides. Never been a fan of black and I'd describe the average plate of black carrot cake as "boring" — drenched in sweet sauce and laboriously monotonous in flavour.
But I tried 𝗯𝗼𝘁𝗵 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗼𝘁 𝗰𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 ($4) at Ghim Moh Carrot Cake and the black stole my heart; never knew black carrot cake could be this good.
They found the sweet spot of imbuing enough of the sauce's robust sweet-savouriness, while not overpowering the carrot cake's natural flavour and delectable egginess. The chili added a punching heat that tied everything together. I was smitten by that impeccable texture, which was drier with a springiness and a tad of chewiness, and a good mix of crunchiness.
The white was also good, with a beautiful outer crisp that hides a moist but not mushy interior, and the chili blended in nicely.
