Blk 133 Ang Mo Kio Hawker Stall Sells $2 Carrot Cake, Around For Almost 20 Years

Blk 133 Ang Mo Kio $2 carrot cake

“The last time I had $2 carrot cake was when I was in primary school,” quipped a colleague when I mentioned that there was, in fact, still a stall in our present-day selling chai tow kway at such an affordable price. That stall is located in the Lian Wah kopitiam at Blk 133 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3—open for over 20 years, the $2 carrot cake at this stall has its prices kept low in a bid to help the elderly in the neighbourhood have access to affordable eats.

The stall doesn’t have a name, so look out for the large “CARROT CAKE $2” sign when you enter the food centre. Both black and white carrot cakes are available, depending on your preference.

While many fans praise the hawker stall’s owner for her thoughtfulness towards the elderly, they also say that the carrot cake here is delicious, even at such a low price.

The white carrot cake is pan-fried till each cube in the chai tow kway bears crisp edges. The wok hei is pronounced, and the simple addition of egg and spring onions give the dish heart and freshness in equal measure. The black carrot cake, on the other hand, is silkier, with dark sauce and preserved vegetables providing a medley of sweet and salty.

These hawkers also sell popiah from the adjacent stall. These rolls go for $1.30 a piece—also cheap—and feature thin skin loaded with radish, egg, and dried shrimp.

Some fans of the stall dub it as one of the best popiah you can find in Singapore for that price, but we’ll let you be the judge.

Head down to grab their dishes for breakfast or lunch as they sell out early. The popiah stall seems to only open on weekends.

If Ang Mo Kio isn’t the most convenient for you to get $2 carrot cake, then there is another stall at Pek Kio Market & Food Centre which sells the same. The stall: Good Spice Carrot Cake. Find out more in our Pek Kio Market food guide.
