(Black & White version) Carrot Cakes… Singapore Style.

It is called “carrot cake” because of a loose English from Hokkien translation of “radish pastry” is called “chai tow (carrot or radish) kway (cake)”, which caught on among the non-native speaking diners, due to its unique misnomer.

Every hike leads us to a hawker center and every hawker center has its own best dish, according to the locals. I just learned to appreciate the education and eat what is presented to me (I am always asked however but I prefer to go with the flow… with reasonable reason!)
