*This stall has another outlet at unit#01-1136 diagonally across the main dining area of the hawker center. Now if you happen to be eating the yong tau hu from 永祥兴豆腐 (which doesn't come with noodles, rice or other starchy gooey staple stuff like beehoon), then you might want to order some dishes from this stall which offers an interesting list of fried noodle variants - from the usual fried kway teow mee (a.k.a. char kway teow), carrot cake, hokkien prawn mee (福建虾面) and fried oyster omelette (蚝煎), to the Indonesian Fried Kway Teow Mee (which the man-in-charge told me is a salty version of the Singaporean one) to the strange combo of Bean Sprouts w/Cockles, and finally the one-day-I-must-try Oyster Fried Kway Teow Mee. Now talk about having an unhealthy fixation with mollusks.

This stall has gotten some awards previously. The standard however seems to have dropped. No doubt the texture of the carrot cake is smooth and has a stronger flavour, but the frying didn't seem enough. Opens from afternoon till late (around 1 to 2am), so go only if you have sudden midnight pangs for carrot cake.

This shop was voted by the public as one of the most popular carrot cake stalls in Singapore in Yummy King. The carrot cake is of the black (soy sauce) variety. You wouldn't know at first glance because the stall front display overflows with a range of traditional teochew kuehs (glutinous rice kueh, ou kueh, ku chye kueh and soon kueh) and other snacks. Looks like we've finally found the missing link between kueh and kway (as in chye tow kway a.k.a. carrot cake) ;-)
