Chey Sua Carrot Cake
Chey Sua Carrot Cake is another legendary hawker. That much I knew, but I had no idea the dish served here is pancake-like! Unlike the usual scattered ensemble, the pieces of radish cake are held together by a thick base of almost hard, crispy egg (and some flour, no doubt). The juxtaposition of hard and soft textures make this quite unusual. And it's spicy all right. This is a S$2 portion.
Business is very good at this stall. When I was there, there wasn't much of a queue, but I still had to wait about 20 minutes or more for my order to arrive. Make sure you go before 1pm as they pack up and close the stall for the day.
