Singapore Hawker Food Sampling Tasting Tours Fried Carrot CakeFried Carrot Cake

Fried Carrot Cake or ‘Chye Tow Kway’ is a very common breakfast staple found in many neighbourhood hawker centres. It is a favourite among many locals as most of us have grown up eating it. It is made up of steamed rice cakes that are broken into little cubes fried with eggs, garlic, sweet sauce (for the black version), preserved radish, soya sauce, chilli paste and served with toppings of chopped spring onions. There are two versions available: white or black, and the former (white) version would provide a more subtle flavour of eggs and preserved radish without the caramelized sweetness that comes from frying it together with the sweet sauce.

Claypot chicken rice as the name implies is typically rice cooked with marinated chicken (usually Chinese wine) over a certain period of time in a claypot. Other ingredients like oyster and dark soy sauce, Chinese sausage, vegetables, mushrooms and salted fish are also added that would enhance the overall taste. They are all cooked together over a charcoal flame for some time, thereby allowing the dish to develop a distinct flavour with a very slight burnt and smokey fragrance.

Wanton Noodles or “Meat Dumpling Noodles” has no particular style of preparation as it all depends on the dialect group of the stall owner that is selling them. However, this noodle dish is usually served with barbequed pork slices or “Char Siew“, lard pieces, special sauces including chilli and garnished with leafy vegetables that is usually “Cai-Xin” (Mustard Leaves) or “Kai-Lan” (Chinese Kale). As it is usually eaten dry with chilli, it also comes with a side serving of bite-sized pork dumplings in a hot broth. Sometimes, the stalls even serve it with another kind of dumplings called “shui jiao” that consists of a mix of pork, prawns and sometimes chicken with mushroom or even fried wantons instead.

This dish is available in most Zhi-Char or “home-cooked” stalls that can be found in many hawker centres all around. This is a simple dish that uses sweet potato leaves stir fried with chopped garlic, dried shrimp, soy sauce and cut chilli padis. This is not only a nutritious dish that is easy to prepare, the result is a wonderful balance between salty and spicy when eaten with white rice.

Popiah or fresh spring rolls consist of an outer layer that is a thin crepe-like ‘skin’ usually made up of wheat flour. It is usually prepared by laying the skin flat and then sweet sauce, chilli paste and garlic are spread over the skin. A fresh vegetables mix comprising turnip, toufu cubes, bean sprouts, lettuce leaves, grated carrots combined with some sliced Chinese sausage, shrimp and finely chopped peanuts are then placed in the middle and the entire ingredients are firmly wrapped into a roll. This is usually a favourite choice among calorie conscious people and vegetarians alike, as it is a light and healthy meal and the Chinese sausage and other undesired meat ingredients can be requested to be omitted.
