Lagoon Carrot Cake and Popiah
This was nice. I quite enjoyed it although my preference is for white carrot cake. Tasty fried carrot cake needs a lot of garlic and chye poh (preserved turnip). And the steamed radish cake pieces should have the scent of radish. Some places just give you stuff made mostly from rice flour, which makes it almost inedible.
The popiah (S$1.80 each, S$3.50 for two) is a bit on the pricey side but is really fat and huge. Tastewise all right, but nothing to shout about. Forgot to ask them to omit the garlic. I don't like the stale, often factory-minced garlic that most popiah stalls use. Not only do they taste foul, they also give you the most stubborn dragon breath.
Look for the faded signboard.
