Chomp Chomp: Hokkien Mee & Carrot Cake

Most people like the thick style of Hokkien Mee that’s sold at Geylang, where lard is used and all the juices are soaked up and you eat it with sambal. I much prefer the light slightly watery version sold at the stall named Ah Hock for years at Chomp Chomp. I like eating it with at least 2 limes and just red cut chillies. It’s heaven, especially when I haven’t had it for months. The carrot cake stall, opposite the Hokkien Mee stall sells very tasty carrot cake with a generous serving of egg.

The aptly named, Chomp Chomp which is in Serangoon Gardens is always packed to the brim and we were lucky to get a table. Ventilation is very poor and I often feel like I have been in a sauna, but it’s totally worth it. The Lychee drink was too sweet to cool me down.

Just across from Chomp Chomp where there are loads of other food places in case you can’t get a seat here.

    Love the name — Chomp Chomp! But carrot cake is something I never acquired a taste for. I think every expat who orders it in Singapore gets a big shock when they actually see it! Nothing like the carrot cake we’re used to.

      I actually never knew another type of carrot cake existed till I was in my early twenties maybe (call me swakoo *wink*). And I loved both the hawker dish and the cake….especially with a generous amount of icing 🙂 I think definitely the Singapore hawker item is an acquired taste…..been having it since I was a tot. I think we don’t realized how oily our food is till we have been away for a while.

    That has to be the best food court name I’ve ever heard in any country…

    To make you a little jealous, Chomp Chomp is in my neighbourhood and we quite frequently head there to pack food to eat at home. It’s too hot to dine there! Oh and we avoid it on weekends. Waaaay too crowded!
