Chey Sua Carrot Cake (青山菜头粿)

I had heard so much about Chey Sua Carrot Cake and finally I had a chance to try it. From what i had gathered, the carrot cakes are homemade from radish and carrots and steamed and left for a day to attain the firmness in texture.

I reached the place around 11.45 am on a sunday noon. There are lots of customers waiting patiently for their orders. The order list is 2-3 pages long. Price range from $2, $3 and $4. Informed them of your table number if you have a table, they will serve the food to you. For take away, you have to enquire on the waiting time, jalan jalan for awhile before coming back for your order.  

The waiting time for this piece of delicious fried carrot cake is about 1 hour !! Never did I waited so long for a dish. 

The carrot cake is beautifully pan fried, crispy and yet moist on the inside. Lots of eggs are used to create the crispness. Little Chyai Por are added in, but in place, the sambal chili that are fried together with the carrot cake greatly enhance the taste, savoury and mouth watering.  

Verdict: 4/5

I won't complaint more other than the waiting time, the carrot cake IS really delicious. Try it if you are willing to wait. You will not regret it.

Opening hours: Tue – Sun 6am to 1pm, closed on Mon
