Ghim Moh Carrot Cake is a popular carrot cake stall in Buona Vista
Earlier this year, our team embarked on a quest for the best black carrot cake in Singapore, and Ghim Moh Carrot Cake was one of the 10 stalls mentioned in the article. We found out that the family-run stall is the most popular carrot cake stall at Ghim Moh Road Market & Food Centre. The queue is said to start from as early as 6:30am, and limited portions are available daily, so only the early birds can cop a plate of their chai tow kway.
What makes their carrot cake unique is that both the carrot cake and chye poh are made from scratch daily. If you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the hawker mashing a huge block of carrot cake using a cutter.
Available in $3, $4, and $5, their carrot cake will tickle your fancy if you can appreciate an aromatic flavour and strong wok hei taste. Do note that their black carrot cake is on the sweeter side, but with some chilli on the side, finding a good balance of flavours isn’t much of a challenge.
A plate of carrot cake is topped with perfectly fried eggs along with bits of crunchy chye poh. Every spoonful of their bouncy radish cubes and generous toppings makes this local dish a substantial and flavoursome one.
For more carrot cake stalls approved by the team, check out Hai Sheng Carrot Cake, where we tried their $2 fried carrot cake that sells out by 10am. Alternatively, there’s Fu Ming Cooked Food AKA a carrot cake stall in Redhill awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand.
