Breakfast is always exciting in Singapore because we have so much to choose from! One of the top favourites - Carrot Cake!! And no, it's not the Western carrot cake dessert, neither is there any carrot in this local Carrot Cake. The key ingredients are radish (white carrot), eggs and preserved turnip. It is commonly known here as Cai Tao (radish) Kway, in the Hokkien dialect.
There are 2 versions of this simple yet satisfying dish - 'white' or 'black', where the black version is stir fried with dark soy sauce and sweet sauce. You can also choose whether or not you would like your Carrot Cake to be spicy with chilli paste tossed in. When ordering, let the stall holder know if you would like it 'black' or 'white', with chill or not. For us, we like to request for an extra egg to be thrown in for $0.50 to $1. :D
You can find Carrot Cake at almost any hawker centre or food court, and in most coffee shops for between $2.50-$6.
