Fried Carrot Cake (Clementi Food Centre)
This is the most famous Fried Carrot Cake stall in 448 Clementi Ave 3 food centre and definitely rank among the top in Singapore. This stall always hold the longest queue in this food centre, so be prepared to wait at least 20 – 30 mins. Although the queue is long, it clears pretty fast as they fry with two stoves. Father will run the stall in morning and his son will take over the business from afternoon onwards till 6pm.
Stall sells both black and white Carrot Cake at $3.50 / $4.50 / $5.50 per plate but you can’t have both of them together.
The Fried Carrot Cake was fried with generous amounts of oil and eggs which gives out a nice garlicky aroma. You can taste the savoury and spiciness of the chilli after first bite. The crispy burnt of the eggs garnished with the preserved radish, all caramelizing well together with the carrot cake cubes. The cubes were really soft and fried into very small sizes which you can almost melt them in the mouth. Surprisingly, it was not too oily or salty and I emptied both plates in minutes as they are simply irressistible.
The Black Carrot Cake taste incredible too as it is not too sweet even with dark sweet sauce added.

You can always spot another long queue at Boon Kee Wanton Noodle which is just beside Fried Carrot Cake stall. This stall is famous for their Wantan Noodles, Ipoh Hor Fun and Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle. Price ranging from $3.50 / $4.50.
Boon Kee Wanton Noodle serve their wanton noodle in an old traditional ways with dark soy sauce, sesame oil and chilli. The ingredients were pretty decent with Veges, Char Siew, one Fried and two wet wanton. The char siew is a bit dry but chewy. The wet wanton are soft and delicate, and the Fried wanton is crispy. The biggest attraction is the robustic, aromatic flavour of their dark sauce and springiness of their noodles.

Chai Ho Satay
Chai Ho Satays are simply delicious and cheap, and that explain why the super long queue. You can smell the smokiness and charred fragrance of the BBQ meat from a great distance away.
The Stall is over 40 years old and currently run by their 2nd generation. Their satays are selling really cheap at just 50 cents per stick with a minimum order of 10. It is definitely one of cheapest satays you can find in Singapore.
The meats are tender and aromatic as they are nicely marinated. The smokiness and charred fragrance of the meat will burst right in your mouth after every bite. Prefer the pork satays as they are so much juicier and tender with the fats. The peanut sauce is thick and nice, but lack pineapple puree to enhance the sweetness and soury taste. Nevertheless, you can never stop at just 10 sticks!

You must try their Lor Mee whenever you visit this stall as they are quickly sold out before 1pm. The starchy gravy was eggy, thick and flavourful. Enhanced it with the right amount of vinegar, minced garlic and chilli for your Beehoon to soak up the incredible unami flavour. The Yellow Noodles was slurpy and nicely garnished with pork belly, brised egg, fried meatballs, and fish cake slices. Their Fried meatballs are the best as it is nicely marinated and fried into small flavourful bombs when you pop them right into your mouth.

Song Fish Soup is another popular stall in this hawker centre with queue starting around 11.30am. Look at its impressive menu, which include Fish Head Soup, Sliced or Fried Fish, Seafood soup, Fish Maw Soup, Red Grouper, and more. Price starting from $4.50. Yuan Yang Bee Hoon was highly recommended by stall owner.
I have ordered both slices and fried fish soup with rice for $6.50. The fish soup was really flavourful and delightful, with added milk for its creamy taste. Dish was enhanced with salted vegetables, bitter gourd, tofu, tomatoes, and garnished with fried egg floss and spring onion. Batang fish slices were fresh and succulent, while the fried batter fish was crispier with thicker exterior. Both placed nicely in the bowl to soak up the aromatic and savoury broth. Gently dipped the fish meats with light soya sauce and chilli padi for greater enjoyment.

The long queue at Yong Fa Hainanese Curry Rice and Curry Fish Head will never stop as the stall only operate from 10am to 230pm. Although the queue is long, it moves pretty fast as the service is quick and efficient. Beside their popular Curry Fish and Curry Fish Head, you can also order their all time favourite sambal squid, curry chicken wing, pork chop and vegetables. Each dish starts from $0.70 onwards.
I am not a huge fan of Assorted Rice as I worried that the dishes might be left out in the cold for long. To my comfort, things are rather different here as stall is crowded and the dishes are moving really fast. Dishes are snapped up fast and immediately replenished with new dishes.
The food are a bit pricy as I ordered their signature Pork Chop with eggs and long beans for $4.20. The coconut curry gravy was rather thin and spicy, added flavour and savoury to the plain rice. Signature Pork Chop was tender and succulent, with sweet and sour sauce on top. While the eggs and long beans were pretty normal. Overall, I do find the dishes pretty decent if you want a quick fix for your curry craving.

Liang Chuan Fishball Minced Meat Noodle
Saw a long queue at Liang Chuan Fishball Minced Meat Noodles during lunch and decided to try and review it. The stall offers Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle or Fishball Noodle at $3.50/$4.50/$5.50.
I am surprised to find many negative feedback about the attitude of the stall mainly too stingy with chilli or poor attitude. I didn’t encounter either one while being served and find the noodle pretty decent.
The minced pork noodles is nicely done and garnish with minced pork, braised mushrooms and pork balls. The texture of the Mee Pok was springy, smooth and chewy. The rest of the soup, braised mushroom and pork ball were pretty decent. The Braised mushroom would definitely make a different if braised slightly longer with more aromatic fragrant.
