There is a heartwarming story behind Lau Goh Teochew Fried Carrot Cake at Zion Riverside Food Centre. This stall is run by a partially-deaf man who takes your order by reading your lips. Over the years, he has been working hard to perfect the art of frying carrot cake and making Lau Goh one of the best in Singapore.
Lau Goh's fried carrot cake comes in the white version (fried with light soya sauce) and the black version (fried with dark soya sauce). My friend who is a fan of this carrot cake recommended the black version.
I ordered a plate of black fried carrot cake which costs $4. Well-fried to a delightfully crispy consistency, the delicious carrot cake is thoroughly coated with fried egg and a layer of sweet soya sauce and chilli.
In terms of culinary standard, Lau Goh Teochew fried carrot cake is certainly fantastic. But in terms of ingredients, it would be perfect if it comes with shrimps. I remembered when I was a child, I loved the carrot cake from Tampines which was fried with plenty of shrimps. But with the rising costs of ingredients, it has become extremely rare to find carrot cake fried with shrimps today. Nevertheless, if you are a fan of carrot cake, you must not miss Lau Goh Teochew Fried Carrot Cake.
