Claypot Laksa (#01-75, Depot Rd Zhen Shan Mei)

Is long queue = good food 🤔
I'm always those lazy bum who ain't willing to queue. But I queued for this and will do it again. For this, the food is really quantity with hums and prawns. While the laska is a little thicker and lesser coconut milk. 😋

Do order large or medium because this is large. Portion wise it isn't as friendly, costed $6 for large. A little expensive for hawker food but worth having it once in a while.

The gravy is addicting, I keep drinking it. But overall, it’s just a normal bowl of laksa.

There wasn't a queue at this stall though on weekends, the queue is longer.

At first, I thought it could be because I was early. Then I realised it wasn't the case as I stayed there for lunch till noon. The chicken rice stall; one stall away from the laksa stall, had a long and perpetual queue).

When I first saw the claypot of laksa, it seemed to has different 'dimensions'. There is a layer of thicker gravy at the top of the claypot.

The gravy is good; smooth and Lemak but not overly rich. The soft taupok slices are also the highlight.

However, IMO, I do not think it is a value-for-money dish. I ordered the $4 portion and it came with 3 mini 'hum(s)', a few strands of bean sprouts, some taupok, and a few slices of fishcake.

My husband got the $5 portion. It came in a slightly larger claypot. There's one additional small shelled prawn... and he wasn't filled after finishing everything.

Not worth unless you absolutely love the gravy.

If not, you might be better off joining the queue at the chicken rice stall.

Zhen Shan Mei Depot Road Claypot Laksa 🌶
Never tasted laksa so so different and good at the same time! Loved the Taupok which packed a little punch as well as the noodles that were coated with the savoury broth 💯

2. Seng Heng Carrot Cake 🥕
Never ever been so impressed by carrot cake until I met Seng Heng! Oh boy he cooks such a mean plate that the other stalls are going to cry 😢

It’s one of the must eat dishes at Alexandra Village as the taste can never go wrong. The soup is smooth, coconutty and spicy.

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.

Laksa sauce was creamy, smooth yet not very oily. While the avocado juice was fragrant with the addition of gula melaka.

P.S. There are a few stalls selling avocado juice. But the one with the queue is called Mr Avocado Exotic Fruit Juice.
