This features thin slices of juicy watermelon interspered with tender slices of juicy tomato. When eaten in combination, it has a layered fruity vegetal sweet flavour.
.
Garnished with wild rocket leaves / arugula dressed with balsamic vinegar and shaved parmesan cheese, lending a sharp bitter sour cheesy note that contrasts nicely. More satisfiying and tasty than I expected it to be.

Kudos as well to Chef Charles Goh, Chef Jason & Team (including Chef Rubesh, Chef Mun Fai, and Chef Prakesh), for an excellent meal, as always.
.
In particular, Chef Charles Goh has recently discovered a passion for coaching and guiding student chefs, in particular, those who hail from humble backgrounds, taking them under his wing, and showing them the art of cooking a variety of different cuisines.
.
I understand he's even delivered guest lectures and classes at the Singapore Hotel And Tourism Education Centre (SHATEC). Support!.

Established in 1975 by Ah Lam, this heritage hawker has since expanded with 8 outlets across Singapore.
.
Never one to rest on their laurels, Ah Lam and team have continued to refine their recipes and create new ones, such as when they introduced their signature salt-baked chicken in 2011.
.
The medium sized chicken thigh is juicy and succulent, with a delicate salty savoury sweet flavour. The salt-bake has infused the chicken, but I wish it was slightly more salty / had been baked longer... though this will still please most.
.
The mixed rice features a base of fragrant earthy savoury yam rice, with chunks of tender yam / taro. Garnished with cabbage, dried sausage, and a cherry tomato. Big, bold, earthy savoury saltt flavours here.

Lam's Salt-Baked Chicken
2 Orchard Turn
#B4-03 ION Orchard
Stall 19
Singapore 238801

.
Formerly known as Tiong Bahru Fried Carrot Cake, over 15 years ago, when the stall was still being run by the old master. The stall was originally established as a push cart in 1960, along Beo Crescent. It moved to Tiong Bahru, then to Clementi.
.
Back then, his son, wearing sports shoes, would run around the hawker centre serving up delicious plates, while the master, in his iconic straw hat, stood behind his 2 large woks, alternating stir-frying and steaming. He did it with such skill too, it looked like he was swimming frog style.
.
His son has since taken over, and the long queue remains a daily constant, a testimony to the good quality. A 20 minutes wait is common, and they are often sold out by 12 noon.
.
Their signature cooking style here features a soft texture, with lots of egg, and some crispy charred bits. The daikon radish cakes are first marinated with fish sauce, alternating steaming and tossing for about 10 minutes in one wok.
.
It's then transferred to the other wok and fried with lard oil and eggs, taking another 5 minutes. Each of the woks are large enough to cook several servings at the same time.
.
The result - one of the most fragrant and delicious carrot cake / chye tow kueh in Singapore.
.
The white version is chopped to small, easy to eat bits, and has a smoky sweet savoury flavour.
.
The black version, with the addition of dark sweet soy sauce, is also chopped small, but the sweet savoury flavour is more pronounced, with slightly less smoky aroma.
.
Been 10 years since I last visited, and the Carrot Cake / Chye Tow Kueh remains as good as ever, both Black and White versions. This remains my favourite in Singapore. Blast of nostalgia, from the best in the West.
