Very Tender, well braised, juicy, and yet easy to bites without dripping

🍘: Kong Ba Pao (扣肉包) - S$2.4
📍: House of Bao Leaf (包粽之家), Singapore

Wasn’t in our original plan to get this, but we were bought over by the smells! No regrets, it was a good plate of omelette egg with tiny bits of meat - fragrant and fluffy although oily.

Our Claypot Vermicelli Prawn didn’t come in a claypot (HAHA) but we didn’t mind it! Flavours were strong and garlicky with a mild heat from the generous black pepper, though I’d like for slightly less ginger and for the dish to be less saucy. For this price with 3 fresh prawns, it was pretty worth it considering how much they usually cost, even though it’s not the typical flavours you’d expect. The queue can get really long though, so it may not be the best pick if you’re looking for a quick meal.

From the mala stall in the middle row of stalls, we ordered 中辣, but it turned out disappointingly mild in spiciness. Nevertheless for the reasonable price, and how it seems to be the least oiliest mala I’ve tried (but still tasty), it’s definitely a good choice here; just going for 大辣 next time.

Possibly the best dumplings I’ve had in Singapore, with soft, thin, silky skins swathed around nuggets of finely minced pork. Doused in vinegar and chilli oil, topped off with dollops of Sichuan chilli paste, you’d expect a blast of sharp, piquant flavour, but the reality is hardly that. Rather, the sauce is surprisingly light and mildly spicy, with just a slight tang such that it complements instead of overpowering the taste of the meat itself.

A set of 10 of dumplings costs only $4.50. You’ll find the stall located in the middle row of Alexandra Village Food Centre.

I’m definitely willing to go back and brave the (well-deserved) queue to try their xiao long bao and guo tie!

There was only a queue of 1 person at Hor Fun Premium (#01-78), so I didn't expect much.. But this Beef Hor Fun 牛肉河粉 ($4) I ordered surpassed my expectations - sufficiently saucy, a little bit of wok hei & char on the flat noodles, & super tender beef slices that weren't too heavily marinated.

Alexandra Village Hawker Centre is fairly new to me, but I did see a couple of long queues in front of stalls with appetising-looking menus. As much as I would like to try those other stalls, this hor fun has some kind of pull factor that makes me want to eat it again. 😋

These delicious pan fried dumplings filled with minced meat and Chinese chives, are packed with flavours and crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.
I always takeaway a couple of dozen of their frozen dumplings 水饺 to stash in the fridge for quick and easy consumption on lazy evenings.


Alexandra Village
Yummy Hong Kong Soups

Being so used to drinking my mum’s soups - I shun from soups served outside because of the tendency to use lots of msg and seasoning or fatty pork / meat which renders the soup “ over nourishing “ .

Yummy HK soups was introduced to me by my dad many years back when they were at Bukit Timah Hawker centre. They have since moved to Alexandra village and standards are as good.

This cordyceps Flower Soup With chicken is so flavourful and filled to the brim with cordyceps flowers , longans , wolf berries and a huge chicken drumstick 🍗 which has been almost cooked to having its meat slide off the bones .
The soup is lightly seasoned , not overly salty not oily .

While most may just throw out the meats in their soups, I love dipping these tender pieces of meat in soy sauce with chilli padi . Just that and a bowl of steaming hot rice is so comforting to the soul.

Evident that the soups here are cooked for many hours , the soup base is almost opaque and filled with the goodness of all the ingredients.

When you are in need of a good bow of nourishing soup - you know where to go 😎

Pu Tian delights

A rainy weather is the best to tuck into this bowl of Heng hwa lor mee.

Chewy handmade noodles in a flavourful broth of clams, vegetables , prawns and pork .

And generously finished with toasted nuts and seaweed.

Simple yet so delectable.

It would have been better if the broth was richer but I am ok given that I couldn’t pick up any trace of oil or msg ( which is great for someone recovering from the flu and fever 🤒).
At 3.50 per bowl - this is so affordable .

A rare find in Hawker centre these days - I am Glad there’s at least an alternative Heng hwa style food here. They also do up a pretty good Heng hwa bee hoon ( and mee swa ) which is very light and tasty .

From The Old Stall Hokkien Street Famous Prawn Mee (#01-58)

Unfortunately asked for less chilli, and despite them still giving a huge lump of sauce, I regretted not asking for more instead. Also enjoyed the soup immensely, so will be choosing the soup option next time.

Would definitely go back for more!!
P.S. They bake one batch of matcha muffins in the morning. So do contact them one day in advance if you want to get them. Also note that they do not operate on Mondays.


Pad thai and fluffy omelette on rice

I began patronising this relatively new thai stall at Alexandra village after trying the omelette on rice when the stall first opened.

The Petit lady Chef ( probably one of the 3 angels) was so patient and attentive to my requests on how I'd like my omelette done plain with less oil.

Just the plain omelette and rice alone was good enough - that was how good the omelette was !
However , this time round I wanted to try the pad thai and I am Glad I did. The pad thai was really good , well seasoned and the pad thai texture was so QQ , the way I like it . I asked for less oil and less salt and even then , the pad thai was still equally enjoyable - a testament of the chef's high adaptive abilities 😍.

I must add that the food is so affordably priced 😇.

My next to try list is the pineapple rice which the stall owner claims uses a unique tumeric and curry powder seasoning instead of artificial colouring which most stalls resort to using now.

Truly angelic thai food stall !

On one hand, the curry was thick, smooth and lemak yet spicy; on the other, it could be more fragrant other than being spicy. Not bad overall although they could be more generous in their ingredients.
Comparatively, the Dover Rd Wanton Mee was old school and really generous for the noodles and ingredients. Quite tasty for a simple hawker meal.

While the fame might not have reached far and wide, location slightly inconspicuous as it is hidden among car workshops, the food centre offers a wide range of stalls and some quality offerings which make it worth a visit.

Here are some of the favourites #DFDHawker

Prices are at $3.50 for this plate of Char Siew Roasted Pork Rice. The roasted pork and char siew here were rather normal and dry, but still tasted not bad.

The roasted meats were drizzled in a dark sauce that enhances its flavour, while the soup was salty to the right amount.

Not Authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice is located at Alexandra Village Food Centre, #01-13, Block 120 Bukit Merah Lane 1, S(150120).
