A very decent plate of fried carrot cake where you can have the best of both worlds at Hock Soon Carrot Cake stall (01-20).

Mini Lemon loaf

From a new stall at Ghim Moh market with a sure enough intriguing name -

I Guess it’s a cheek in tongue - just to highlight the fact how the modern day person does things without an a feel - typically fully mechanised and Automated .

Never mind about the name - I managed to grab the last piece of this mini lemon loaf slice .

Spongy , soft and with a real lemon aroma and good citrusy taste to cut through the richness of the butter.

It’s like a breath of fresh air in a hot humid typically Ching Chong Chinese market .

For 2 dollars , a rather small piece but with every dollar for the quality .

They will be / have brought on flavours like the usuals - banana/ Mable cake etc and may possibly consider muffins in the near future .


With the addition of black soya sauce, this carrot cake is significantly sweeter and wetter than its white counterpart. It is crumbly and messy to eat, but I suspect most people would just scoop a big spoonful of it to eat anyways!

From the famous stall at #01-16, this carrot cake is crisp and filled generously with chye poh.

Probably a close contender of my favourite porridge store in Maxwell! The porridge ($3) is simmered long to give a smooth texture, but I like that the individual grains can still be felt. Major plus points that this is a very clean bowl overall - none of the usual MSG junk that leaves you super thirsty! They use sesame oil to elevate the flavour, and I personally like adding an egg (+ $0.50). The best part of it is their hand rolled meat balls, which are made from lean minced meat (no fat or cartilage included at all!!) and lightly seasoned to give a really satisfying bite!! 👍🏼🌟

Always face decision paralysis at Ghim Moh because there is so much to choose from, but this is a family favourite :-) firmer than most other places, the chwee kueh ($0.50/pc, min $2) gives a good bite! Aunty is not very generous with with her cai poh but what she lacks in quantity, she more than makes up for with quality. The pickled vegetables pack a punch, and is complemented by the chilli.
