Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake
Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake has a history that stretches back easily 60 years, and is now run by a duo of brothers (there used to be three, but one left to pursue another path). At one point, this was one of the last places in Singapore where you could get traditionally made radish cake – instead of using rice flour, the brothers would mill broken rice into a fine grain, create a paste from that, before adding white radish and turnip. Now, they get the cakes from a factory that uses the same traditional technique. We can't say the taste has suffered; both the black and white versions (from $2.50) are served chunkier than usual with a good amount of wok hei.
