Lai Fa Carrot Cake @ Toa Payoh Lorong 8

Time flies and it has been almost four and a half years since I last visited Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Food Centre. I could not believe it takes me so long to re-visit this hawker food haven. The last time I was here, it was in the evening and I managed to check out Hock Kee Lorong 8 Bak Kut Teh and B for Beancurd. As my visit this time is in the morning, I decided to try Lai Fa Carrot Cake.

There are quite a few carrot cake stalls in the food centre. It seems this is the more popular one among the patrons so I joined in the queue. The stall sells both the white and black version of the fried carrot cake at $2, $2.50 and $3. I decided to go for the black carrot cake as this is my preferred version nowadays.

The radish cake is diced into small cubes and well coated with the dark sweet sauce with a generous topping of eggs. The fragrant fried carrot cake comes with bites of aromatic charred on the radish cake giving it a nice sweet bitterness. I also like the fact that there is still a bit wetness in the egg instead of overly dry.

Overall, I have enjoyed the plate of fried carrot cake by Lai Fa. The sweetness of the dark sauce and the charred edges complemented the radish cake. The texture was not mushy and still comes with a bite delectably served with a generous topping of egg.
