Song Zhou Carrot Cake – Best Black Carrot Cake in Singapore
THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST BLACK CARROT I EVER HAD. I was introduced to Song Zhou Carrot Cake by the boyfriend who is a big fan of Song Zhou. He used to rave to me how good this stall is and no other black carrot cake stall can ever fight with Song Zhou. After bugging him for months, I finally get to try it and I totally agree with him!
The stall started from Mdm Qiu’s dad and she has been helping in the stall since young. Now, her husband and her has taken over the stall and serves good carrot cake for lunch and dinner. They used to only sell white carrot cake, but as more youngsters love the black ones, they started to fry black carrot cake.
Even though they no longer make their own carrot cake, but after getting it from supplier, they will add some “secret” ingredients to make to make it softer. The owner will first stir fry the garlic and chai poh till fragrant, then add in some carrot cake pieces, pour over the egg batter and fry with black sweet sauce and fish sauce.
Song Zhou’s black carrot cake is very very fragrant and wet. Each piece of carrot cake is so soft with aromatic charred edges. What I love about it is, they are very generous with the eggs and black sauce, hence giving it a sweet and savoury taste. The white one is also not bad, but I still preferred the black ones. And to be frank, I think the uncle does a better job than the wife. The owner said, there is no secret to frying a good plate of carrot cake. What’s most important is to control the fire so that the heat will be balanced during frying.
Each plate of carrot cake starts from $2.50.
