Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake is this exemplary stall that will questions your tastebuds if this is by far the best Carrot cake dish that you have ever tasted?
At least for me, this is my latest “addiction” for a local side dish that has surprisingly impacted me as a new fan to be part of the Chai tow kway’s experience!
Indeed, there’s a contrastively difference between handmade and ready-made which is evident by the popularity of this stall for serving up one of the best Carrot cakes.
Just be sure to avoid standing directly in front of the transparent kitchen’s panel that “showcases” the frying process, else you will find yourself being nagged by the stall owner for safety precaution against the frying’s heat.
Typically, I would opt for their Black carrot cake with chili as it is packed with an extra spice & sweetness from the addition of dark soy sauce.
Given that the nature of this dish tends to be leaning towards the greasy side, it might not be that advisable to opt for a larger sizing portion without feeling too greasily sick. However, do not get me wrong with this particular plate of Black carrot cake as it is considered to be less greasy as a whole but the aspect of greasiness does slowly builds up with couple of bites. The remarkably soft spongy texture of the carrot cake does deserves a noteworthy mention, simply by how flavourful the condiments of dark soy sauce and wok fragrance that were infused into it. You can totally taste the aromatic sweetness of the dark soy sauce which is the main essence to this dish. I have also enjoyed the complement of fresh eggs that has constituted to the overall fragrance, resembling to that of a Chinese pancake, amusedly!
The heavenly sweetness from the dark soy sauce does really uplifts the entire dish by taking it to the next level.
I can never forget the extremely soft spongy texture of the handmade carrot cake which I believe that it is also the main reason why the flavours are much more easily able to infuse into it.
This certainly has to be credited to the large frying’s heat that is responsible for bringing out its full flavour. There is not much of a complaint for me pertaining to this dish except for its natural trait of built-up greasiness that is unavoidable. Hence, the smallest sizing portion is the way to go even when you are just looking at having it as your main meal. For the spice-conscious individuals, the addition of chili is still manageable in terms of its kick, but just be warned that it does binds really well with the frying’s heat, resulting it to likely pack a punch for some. Hahahaha, I guess I will now be looking out for this particular dish when visiting the various food centres!
