With four outlets islandwide, Boon Lay Ho Huat Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee is a well-known hawker stall that has been around for over 30 years.

Priced from $4.50, this atas carrot cake is fried with truffle oil for an aromatic finish. Just like the usual fried carrot cake we get at hawker stalls, the carrot cake cubes are covered in a crispy layer of egg, and garnished with spring onions for added colour. Add on a dollop of their homemade chilli on the side for a tangy kick of spice.
Do note that their Fried Carrot Cake With Truffle is available at all outlets except at their main outlet located at Boon Lay Place.

While you’re there, go for their signature Hokkien Prawn Mee ($4.50), which has a decent amount of wok hei. It is fried in an umami-packed prawn broth and topped with generous pieces of crispy pork lard, creating an extra flavourful plate of noodles. You will find plump pieces of prawns, numerous slices of lean pork, spring onions, tau geh, and little chunks of fried egg.
If you’re feeling a little peckish, go for the $5.50 portion that is filled with extra noodles and ingredients.
