Chai Chee Cai Tou Guo: $2 Old School Fried Carrot Cake Sticks In Bedok North

27th August 2021

$2 carrot cake sticks at Chai Chee Cai Tou Guo

Most of us usually fall in one of two teams: Team Black Carrot Cake, or Team White Carrot Cake. Sadly, this equation forgets to include old school fried carrot cake—you’ll typically see these as deep-fried triangles, without the lup cheong and hei bee you get in the dim sum varieties. Chai Chee Cai Tou Guo is one place you can hit up, if you’re looking for these old school bites.

On the menu at Chai Chee Cai Tou Guo are four items: Yam Cake ($0.60), Yam Cubes ($2), Carrot Cake ($0.60), and Carrot Cake Strips ($2/$3). While the Yam Cake and Carrot Cake are sold by piece, the Yam Cubes come in bags of five, while the Carrot Cake Strips come in paper bags of 10 or 15 sticks, looking somewhat like French fries.

These nostalgic bites are fried in small batches, so they’re rarely left to sit on the display for long. The carrot cake here is said to be crisp on the outside, and soft within. If you’re going for the Yam Cake or Yam Cubes, these have bits of taro, and dried prawns, that give them a savoury, umami flavour.
