the greatest fried (black) carrot cake and roti prata i know in singapore
Hello, this post has been in my mind for a very long time. I’d like to recommend two great places for fried carrot cake (black) and roti prata, respectively. The former is located in Ang Mo Kio, Street 11. (Stall name: Ang Mo Kio 107) It is manned by a really friendly uncle who always wears a smile on his face as he fries up platter after platter of sticky delicious carrot cake! Make sure you order the black version though, as his white version is unfortunately inferior to those at Seven Mile market. His black carrot cake, though, is the best I’ve ever tasted! No joke!Haha I tried to be artistic by applying a desaturation to the photo but it kinda failed. Anyway, in front of his stall, you’ll see many awards from food programs or books. He usually opens from 6 or 7pm till midnight, so take note. Haha, for more detailed directions, check out http://www.hungrygowhere.com/singapore/107_Carrot_Cake/
The roti prata stall is located in Sin Ming (name: Faisal & Aziz Curry). Their prata is crispy yet fluffy inside, and does not taste too floury or flat. Their curry is also extremely hearty and sweet. I suspect they put a lot of tomatoes in it.As for other items, do try their fried chicken (about $3) – it is really better than KFC! Juicy inside, with a very flavourful crispy skin. Their curry chicken is also a must try. Their address is Block 24, Sin Ming Road, #01-51 Jin Fa Restaurant (near Thomson Road).I always try to bring my visiting overseas friends to these more local places, as I find many of the much-touted kopitiams like Chomp Chomp or Newton Circus are too commercialised, and more pricey too. These smaller shops are also have a more homey atmosphere and will show a more local slice of life to your overseas friends! Oh man, I just remembered I also have recommendations for beef noodles and nasi lemak. Not to mention the white version of carrot cake!
So much good food to share! Nevermind, I’ll leave them to subsequent posts.
