My usual favourite stall at Alexandra Village Food Centre was closed for 2 weeks, so I ventured to another one. Prawn Mee was the craving of the day, & it being past 2PM on a weekday, I didn't have as much options at this hawker centre as compared to during regular lunch hour.

Gave Wei Zhong Qi Prawn Noodle 味中奇虾面 (#01-87) a shot, & ordered the large prawn noodles ($6.00 nett) because I was hungry.

In theory, this would have been good. Substantial ingredients: Several sizeable peeled prawns, fishcakes, thin pork slices that weren't tough, & bean sprouts. However, this fell short of expectations & I knew it the moment it was served to me.

You can tell why, too. Just look at how overcooked the prawns are. & looking at the texture, the freshness is questionable too. My first bite into it confirmed this, & I struggled to finish the rest of the prawns in my bowl.

The soup also felt salt-laden, & didn't have that umami flavour that I love. I also struggled to finish that, as well... Which is so unlike me.

Overall, unfortunately a disappointing bowl of prawn noodles that I wouldn't recommend or order again.

My mum and I enjoyed our order of “Ma La Xiang Guo” from stall #01-42 at Alexandra Village Food Centre. Operated by a mainland Chinese couple, their spectrum of spiciness is on the bolder end, so our bowl of 中辣 (medium level of spiciness) had me panting and continually reaching for a sip of my drink. We found their version really fragrant - definitely a notch above many out there. It also has a distinctive element of curry in its flavour profile. We were fine with it but if you are fussy about having only the “ma” and the “la” in your hotpot, then this might not be suitable.

Finally tried this and it's very good. Really nothing to fault and special mentions go to the deep-tasting soup and the silky bird.

Checked out Seng Heng Fried Carrot Cake that rendered a long queue on a Saturday evening during dinner time. Waiting time was about 20 minutes. The aunty who was taking orders has a good memory of different orders but was a little hostile while interestingly, the uncle who was frying the carrot cake was neatly dressed in shirt and pants.

There was a mix of white and black carrot cake orders, despite reading that white was the more popular choice. Unlike the black, it came in pretty big blocks, draped over by the egg batter. I usually prefer my carrot cake to be the sweeter black version, so it took a little longer to have it fried. A good ratio of eggs and the carrot cake, I could also taste the wok hei but sadly, lesser preserved radish. Portion was reasonable and the dish wasn’t too oily. Downside though, I had multiple pieces of egg shell in my carrot cake.

Braised Duck Rice, $3. A Mouth-watering plate of braised duck rice with egg, beancurd and braised peanuts! So in love with their authentic yam rice that’s so fragrant! Braised duck meat is so tender and taste so good with that savoury gravy all over it! .

Best avocado juice could only be found in Alexandra Village Food Centre. We frequent this stall 盛丰 #01-11 or King Avocado #01-17. Both are similar in taste but we prefer the former for it is not so sweet. Their strawberries milk shake is tasty too.
