What to eat at Alexandra Village Food Centre


1. Soon Lee Stew Beef (牛二代) @ Alexandra Village Food Centre

When we visited Soon Lee Stew Beef (牛二代), there wasn’t a queue. Singaporeans know their food and without a queue, it didn’t bode well for Soon Lee Stew Beef. Nonetheless, as we were visiting King Avocado (everyone visits Alexandra Village Food Centre for Avocado Fruit Juice right?), we first noticed the (steep) prices of Soon Lee Stew Beef. Then we thought to perhaps try out the Beef Stew Noodles for $4 (small). Though a little expensive for hawker standards, we went ahead nonetheless.

It was a good choice.

Firstly, the portion was quite generous for $4. So you won’t have that “I think I’ve been scammed” feeling by ordering the “small” $4 serving. The chef would slice some pieces of white carrot, normal carrot and place the noodles (mee kia) seasoned with fragrant sesame oil over it. Then, opening a pot of beef stew, he carefully chose some potatoes and of course generous portions of tender beef stew. Secondly, the noodles, when drenched in the rich beef stew was definitely a comfort food of sorts. The slightly sour chili balanced the rich flavours really well.

2. Zi Jin Cheng Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice @ Alexandra Village Food Centre

Next to Soon Lee Beef Stew is Zi Jin Cheng Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice. Since Kate wanted to have some chicken rice and Zi Jin Cheng Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice was just next door, we decided to give it a try. In terms of taste, both the chicken and rice were passable. The rice was slightly bland and did not have the fragrance a good plate of chicken rice ought to have. The chicken relied substantially on the soy sauce which made it slightly salty. However, the up side is that for $3, the portion of chicken was generous. The pieces of breast meat was huge and chunky. Definitely value for money.




3. King Avocado Fruit Juice @ Alexandra Village Food Centre

Before there were any other imitation Avocado Fruit Juices at Alexandra Village Food Centre, there were only 2. Mr Avocado and King Avocado fruit juice stalls. Those were the days when a small cup of rich, amazing tasting avocado fruit juice went for only $2! Today, a large cup costs $3.5. Not too bad actually – especially if you consider how long ago “those days” were. Yes, we’re ancient…

We have actually done a taste test of both avocado fruit juices before and concluded that Mr Avocado had the slightly better tasting version (in case you’re wondering which is the best avocado fruit juice stall at Alexandra Village Food Centre). However, both stalls have their loyal following and most Singaporeans would not mind having the other if one of them is closed for the day. This was what happened, this time we visited. Mr Avocado was closed for the day 🙁

Nonetheless, the rich and comforting cup of avocado juice from King Avocado did the trick and made our trip a satisfying one. Also, by visiting King Avocado, we tried out the two stalls above as well.

Besides, the “Singapore famous” Avocado fruit juices at Alexandra Village Food Centre, what are some of your favourite food stalls here? Tell us more in the comments section below!
