Alexandra Village Food Centre is a very famous cooked food centre along Alexandra Road. Very busy during weekday lunchtime, and even in the evenings, this place has plenty of good food. In this blog post, I will put a compilation of the various food that I have enjoyed at AV Food Centre for your easy reference.
The Old Stall Hokkien Street Famous Prawn Mee
Had a hearty bowl of dried prawn mee (kway teow plus yellow noodles mixed) for breakfast at this store, which is in the middle row. The store has many newspaper cuttings on the signboard, you won't miss it. It sells its own specially made chilli powder and has a very cute sign on 5 'must-eat' reasons. Did I enjoy it? Yes, good taste. Worth a try if you like prawn mee.
Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle (Hong Kong style)
This Hong Kong inspired eatery specialises in soya sauce chicken noodle. They claim that this is the only store, and no other branches. How did it taste? The chicken was good. Tender. The noodles, well, just average. Overall, quite a decent meal. Give it a try if you fancy some Hong Kong style soya chicken noodles.
Jin Pai Zi Char - Beef Kailan Rice
A hawker store selling Zi Char? Yes. At first, I was skeptical, given that the store looked so small. There was just one cook and one lady helping (I assume they are husband and wife). But I noticed that their business was pretty swift, so I decided to try a one-dish meal and chose Beef Kailan with rice. I was blown away! The portion was very generous, the beef was tender, the Kai lan was soft, the sauce was good and all that for just $4! Impressive. You would be aware that Zi Char stores at coffee shops and other eating places are not that cheap these days.
Jin Pai Zi Char Kung Pao Chicken Rice
Same store as above, this time round I get the Kung Pao chicken with rice. Again, serving was generous, cooking was not bad. Best of all was the price. $3.50. Good stuff! Support local hawker fare!
Dover Road Kai Kee Wanton Noodles
Bought lunch for the family from this store, after a friend told us that this store had a long history. In fact, they started decades ago, at the Dover Road Market (which is now closed). There was a good queue. We bought many packets for the family and brought home to eat. At $2.50 per serving, it was a good size portion. Makes for a cheap lunch! Enjoy!
Lian Kee Bak Chor Mee
Had this Bak Chor Mee for breakfast one morning and it wasn't too bad. Price was $3. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading.
