We Fry our Carrot Cake

In Singapore we have carrot cake that’s a chinese dish which is fried. The main ingredients are rice flour, shredded radish, egg and garlic. B introduced me to a good one at Bedok hawker centre. It’s a hot crowded place near the Bedok bus terminal at a stall called Song Zhou. I decided to have the white version (without sweet soy sauce) and in my zeal (being the chilli freak that I am) I asked for more chilli. As B later said with his usual annoying, “I told you so” it was too spicy and the chilli made it salty. The black carrot cake (with sweet soy sauce) he picked was so yummy though, although it might look like a bit of a mess to those who haven’t tasted it before. Anyway it was cheap at $2.50 Singapore dollars a plate.

I don’t know that much about food, but I do know what I like or what I don’t. To make my boring life seem more interesting, I take photos and share them. B knows a lot more though, since he can cook and I can’t. His insights have made me more discerning or should I say finicky about what I eat.
