Alexandra Village Claypot Laksa – Best Sizzling Hot Laksa Ever

   

Alexandra Village Food Centre is one of those hawker centre gems that is not so populated, underrated, and filled with above-average hawker stalls. Interesting, I noticed many customers ordering various claypot dishes of bak kut teh, sausage rice, mushroom chicken, prawn noodles and pork trotters.

You can almost call Alexandra Village Food Centre a “claypot heaven”. (Read: Alexandra’s Village Soon Lee Fire-Pot Stew Beef)

Of course, its most famous claypot stall is the Claypot Laksa? Never had it before? Then you are missing a huge deal.

This stall originated form the Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa near CMPB, and word has it that the old couple sold their recipe to its present owners. While the present version is said to be less sizzling hot, loyal customers would still say it is more or less than same.

Alexandra Village’s Claypot Laksa ($4.50) is really the best laksa I ever had – the gravy is spicy, lemak and so so tasty. Warning though: a bowl of lemak laksa is 696 calories according to HPB, so go easy on the gravy.

The style is completely different from the popular but more muted Katong laksa (you can go opposite to Queensway Shopping Centre to try).

It is quite ingenious to use a claypot to contain because the food remains warm throughout, and just adds double fiery to the gravy.

I love most claypot dishes – claypot rice, claypot noodles, claypot bak kut teh, claypot tofu… what other dishes do you suggest to be ‘clay-potted’?

    Hmmm… if I didn’t rem wrongly… apparently the CMPB stall was run by the parents… the son took over from them to run this stall as that side kena enbloc… But I might be wrong 😛

    What is the correct address of this Claypot Laksa?

    I see in other site as Blk 120.

    Is it Blk 119 or Blk 120?

    Thanks

    Sorry to dig out this post…I’ve ate the old claypot laksa in the late 90s in the coffeeshop…it was hot and superb. Since it was enbloc …try the ‘Alexandra Village laksa…it was miles apart compared to the original. I’ve read the original is at Blk 8 Telok Blangah Rise coffeeshop and I’m wondering is it true and is it still there? Thanks.
