Carrot Cake in Singapore is made of neither carrot nor cake. Woh.
The dish is basically an omelet, or maybe more of a fried egg, with steamed rice flour and radish “cakes” and spring onions. You can get it black or white. The white is without soy sauce and the black is with soy sauce, which is more popular in Malaysia.
Why do they call it carrot cake then? Well apparently the radish is known as “white carrot” in Chinese.
This one is from Holland Village Food Centre. $3 for a small, $4 for a medium, $5 for a large, prices in Singaporean dollars. Honestly I’ve seen the small and medium portions and they seemed the same, so I’m not sure why the price difference. Maybe the man thought I looked a bit skinny when I ordered the small.
Have it with hot sauce. Lots and lots of amazing hot sauce. Yum.
