Alexandra Village Food Centre
Alexandra Village flies a little under the radar since it’s tucked away behind a row of auto shops, but locals know what’s up at this hawker centre. Highlights include the sliced fish hor fun noodles, spicy claypot laksa, and some legitimately awesome soup dumplings. The Bukit Merah area is what’s known as heartland Singapore, meaning any area beyond the city center, yet it’s just ten minutes away from glitzier areas like Orchard Road and Holland Village. You can find a large concentration of excellent spots here (like neighborhood favorite Keng Eng Kee or Durian Lab), which makes this one of the better hawker centres around.
