On many late school days me and Daphne usually consider the Bukit Timah Market as one of the options for dinner since it's pretty near campus. There's a pretty good variety of stalls here, some of which boast credible media recommendations. In this particular dinner, we tried two, both of which bore Channel U honours.
Soyako Beancurd with Tang Yuan: 8/10
Ooh yummy! Very smooth texture, and this isn't too sweet because they use soya bean milk rather than pure sugar water.
There's four tang yuans (or ah boling as some like to call it) of which two are filled with sesame paste, the other two with peanut paste. Our personal favourite will always be the peanut ones, but they're nice all the same.
$1.80 per bowl
He Le Carrot Cake: 8/10
Daphne may have gotten this stall's name wrong, lost in translation, but that aside, this has always been our favourite stall for carrot cake. It assures us it uses only vegetable oil (even pointing to their oil tins everytime I ask) and so it removes the worry of them using lard. This carrot cake is crispy and you could taste the egg mixed with it, something you couldn't if they either use too little or is too salty in some other places. It is also a tad bit spicy, and Daphne guessed that they use chilli similar to that of the sambal seafood stalls use for their bbq stingrays. It gives this dish the overall (and "completing") flavour.
$2-$5. This plate in the picture costs $2.

Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre
Next to Shell petrol station, near to Bukit Timah Plaza and Beauty World Shopping Centre.
The katong laksa here is not too bad, and the bbq chicken wings is good, especially the chilli. No reviews on these for the time being because we only had room for a light dinner! =) Till next time then.
