Review: San Chao (Singapore)
Eunos Crescent Food Centre Singapore
serves a trio of fried dishes – fried carrot cake, fried oyster omelette and fried kway teow. Mostly good.
Fried Carrot Cake
San Chao does fried carrot cake in the usual black and white options. Seen here is their yuan yang which comes with both black and white versions of their fried carrot cake.
The fried carrot cake uses small radish cake cubes that is soft. These are fried with eggs and topped with spring onions. The black ones has sweet black sauce added, tastes decent but is not crispy. As for the white ones, it is done flat pancake style with an egg coating. The white fried carrot cake is pan fried until its egg coating is crispy. Its radish cake cubes are also fairly crispy. Decent flavours as well. This white fried carrot cake is crispy outside and soft inside. Definitely a likeable one.
For the fried carrot cake here, go for the white ones. It is definitely way better than the black ones.
Fried Oyster Omelette
San Chao also does fried oyster omelette. This fried oyster omelette has an egg and starch mixture that is pan fried until it is really crispy with some starchy parts slightly chewy. The oysters quite decent and it comes served with a limey chilli dip on the side.
This fried oyster omelette tastes nice and is a rather good one.
Fried Kway Teow
San Chao serves fried kway teow as well, in both the regular black ones and white ones,
This fried kway teow comes with the usual see hum, fish cake and lap cheong slices wok fried in a mixture of kway teow and yellow noodles with egg and some bean sprouts.
The fried kway teow has a mixture of more kway teow than yellow noodles, and it has a nice firm texture. The flavourings is nice and there is a mild hint of wok hei, The black ones has sweet black sauce added giving it a slightly sweet taste. Both the fish cake and lap cheong are pretty normal. The see hum, however, is kind of small and a bit dry.
Personally I like the white version of fried kway teow more. It has a more flavourful wok hei taste without the added sweet black sauce. Give this a try, you may like it too.
