PRICE: $4 to mix both black and white carrot cake (No extra charge for takeaway)

WAITING TIME: 5 min on a Tuesday evening around 6PM

REMARKS:
- It's the long and chunky rectangular style though. I prefer them finely choppe
- Would be good to have more chye poh in the white carrot cake to make it contrastingly more savoury

WILL I RETURN? Quite unlikely

SERVICE: Good! Our Kopitiam card did not have sufficient money when we were making payment, and had to go to the top-up machine first. But the kind lady sent our order in to the kitchen first anyway, and passed us the beeper. Our beeper was already beeping when we were walking back to the stall to make payment!

WAITING TIME: No more than 5 minutes

COMMENTS:
- It's halal! No pork lard, but there's chicken sausage
- Could do with more cockles
- Not bad actually!
- No wok hei though

WOULD WE RETURN?
Yes, to try the other items from this seemingly popular stall

PRICE: $3/4/5

😊 No wokhei but still a very decent plate of CKT!
😊 On the sweeter side. Slightly wet.

👍 WILL reorder again

The fact that the elderly owners steam the carrot cake themselves!
