Unusual combination of dishes from a single stall, but as many will attest, their carrot cake is much better than their wanton noodles, with a satisfying soft and moist texture from the small diced cubes of steamed daikon radish.
.
The most popular is the black version, with the intense lashings of dark sweet soy sauce wafting through the air, the enticing aroma a preview of the robust smoky sweet savoury salty eggy flavours within.
.
The white version is pretty good as well, with the crunch of the preserved radish / chye poh being more prominent here, a delectable burst of smoky savoury salty sweet eggy flavours.

Beloved for their aromatic plates of carrot cake infused with garlic and wok hei / breath of the wok. The small cut carrot cake cubes are soft and moist without being mushy, and so fragrant.
.
The black version is laced with dark sweet soy sauce, sizzled till some of the small bits turn crispy. Has a bold sweet savoury salty eggy spice flavour.
.
The white version is set into rough squares, sizzled till the sides are slightly crispy. Has a lovely savoury sweet salty eggy spice flavour.

A very popular stall and among my favourites, now in its 2nd generation from its establishment in the 1960s.
.
Hawker Peter Goh and wife are hearing-impaired, and the innovative way they take orders through pictures and clear signages is efficient, moving the queue quickly.
.
The white version is appealing with a slightly crispy edge, good amount of egg holding the soft moist carrot cake together, and an enticing savoury salty spice sweet eggy flavour.
.
The black version is delicious with small crispy bits within, good amount of wispy egg mixed with the soft moist carrot cake, and an addictive sweet savoury spice salty eggy flavour.

Reowned for their unique flavour of carrot cake, made using curry powder, sweetened chye poh / preserved radish, and deshelled shrimp.
.
This gives each plate a unique layering of taste, yet it doesn't distract from the soft moist taste of the carrot cakd itself.
.
The white version is my preference here, smoky savoury spicy eggy sweet in flavour, the notes of curry and egg amd shrimp quite distinct.
.
The black version is also well loved, smoky sweet spicy eggy savoury in flavour. Here, the curry is tamed with the dark sweet soy sauce, though you still get the taste of the egg and shrimp. I find the contrast a tad jarring.

For over 10 years, this stall has been serving consistently reliable, if unassuming, plates of carrot cake.
.
Shaped in a distinct pyramid-shape, their carrot cake is soft and moist. I like the generous portion of egg within, nice.
.
I like the black version, which is a little softer, with robust sweet savoury eggy flavour. The white version is tasty too, with savoury sweet eggy flavour. Both carry a hint of smoky aroma.
.
Their chili is punchy, with a sharp spicy kick, making this all the more delicious.

Quietly serving up heaping plates of carrot cake for over 30 years.
.
Each plate is fried with preserved radish / chye poh, garlic, vegetable oil, and egg. Their carrot cake has both soft and crispy bits throughout, yum.
.
The white version has good textures then, with a pronounced smoky savoury sweet eggy spice flavour, though I understand this can be inconsistent sometimes.
.
Most agree the black version is better here, the addictive smoky sweet savoury eggy spice flavour being a stand-out.

Vietnamese lady boss Ngo Thi Hoa quickly picked up wok-frying skills from the Hokkien Mee hawker she previously worked for.
.
While her speciality is naturally Hokkien Mee, her other wok-fried dishes are just as tasty, like this rendition of carrot cake marinated with fish sauce and chye poh / preserved radish.
.
The medium cut carrot cake is soft and moist. The white version is better, with a generous blanket of egg, and bright savoury salty sweet eggy flavour. The black version is tasty, having a little more smoky aroma, and deep sweet savoury salty eggy flavour.

Since 1971, with over 50 years experience hand making and steaming their own carrot cake, it's little wonder they attract queues.
.
The carrot cake is moist and delicious with a soft chew, well executed. Has a generous portion of eggs and chye poh / preserved radish.
.
The black version is smoky sweet savoury eggy spice in taste. I prefer the white version, with its savoury sweet eggy spice notes, and tiny crispy bits.

As a regular customer over the last 10+ years, I'm glad to see them not only pull through the pandemic, but groom a 2nd-generation to gradually take the helm.
.
While more well known for their fried oyster, their skill in getting fluffy eggs with crisp edges around starch, is equally applicable to carrot cake.
.
I always get a yuan yang, with black and white versions. The former has deep sweet savoury eggy flavours, while the latter has bright savoury sweet eggy flavours. I like that the carrot cake is cut into small cubes too.

I first chanced upon this stall, and their overly generous huge portions, back when I used to work nearby.
.
They serve an above average rendition, with a soft easy texture that the elderly folks around here like. Nice smoky edges to their handmade carrot cake, with a good mix of eggs within.
.
Seasoned with fish sauce and sesame oil, each plate is smoky savoury eggy sweet in taste, while being slightly greasy.
.
The black version fares better with a distinct lacing of the sweet dark soy sauce, while the white version has more pronounced smoky eggy notes.

The queue at this popular stall starts at 6am, and only gets longer throughout the morning, until they sell out.
.
Still, the family-run stall operates with quick efficiency in clearing the queue, moving at a crisp pace in serving up plate after plate of their delicious carrot cake, moist and soft and eggy without being overly greasy.
.
I prefer the black version, a tossed messy pile where every bite has a bit of carrot cake, a bit of egg, and a lot of smoky sweet savoury salty eggy flavour. The white version is lovely, stacked in pancake squares that carry aromatic smoky savoury salty sweet eggy notes.

Started in the 1960s by Ng Keng Chow, his humble pushcart became known as 'Tiong Bahru Carrot Cake', and retained the name even after they moved into the Clementi market in the 1980s.
.
Having patronised them for over 20 years, I remember Uncle Ng's iconic straw hat, and the 2 large pans he used... 1 to marinate the carrot cake cubes in chye poh / preserved radish, fish sauce, and vegetable oil. The other pan to stir fry, dual-wielding 2 ladles and using broad circular strokes, almost like he was swimming.
.
He handed over to son & daughter-in-law Ng Joong Yew and Jessy Lee in 2010, and they changed the stall name to its current, with grandson Brandon Ng coming on in 2019. Cooking style remains the same, using the 2 large pans.
.
Having eaten at more than 40 different carrot cake stalls across Singapore, this stall remains my ultimate favourite.
.
They cut the carrot cake cubes small, and are generous with the chye poh / preserved radish and eggs, resulting in a soft moist fluffy texture, while the edges are a little crispy.
.
I prefer the black version, laced with a generous helping of sweet dark soy sauce, a bold sweet savoury eggy salty smoky flavour. The white version, which looks almost similar, holds enticing savoury salty eggy sweet smoky flavour.
.
The chili lends a bit of spicy kick, so yummy. Eating here is a pilgrimage of sorts, requiring careful planning.
