Alexandra Village Food Centre has lots of great options. However, as there's only so much food two stomachs can handle, we had to make some rather hard choices. In the end, we decided to go for the Bak Ku Teh and Roast Meat Rice instead of the Claypot Laksa and jiao zi.

There's two types of Bak Ku Teh out there in Singapore, the herbal kind and the peppery kind. Leon Kee's Bak Ku Teh belongs to the former category.  Laced with dang gui and garlic cloves, the claypot helps keep the soup hot. We ordered the portion with extra pork ribs ($6.00) and added crispy you tiao ($1) to soak up the flavorful soup. To go with the pork ribs which have been stewed for hours on end until tender, make sure to grab some chili padi and dark soy sauce.

Next to the Bak Ku Teh stall was a long queue for this roast meat rice. Being typical Singaporeans, we had to see what the fuss was about. We know it looks like a pile of grisly meat and grease but believe us, it is in fact an incredible combination of char siu and roast pork doused in their special braised sauce. For only $3.50 a portion, you also get a bowl of cabbage soup (with pigtail) which helps to cleanse your palate between each spoonful of the sinfully good roast meat.

We will be heading back there a second time to try the highly raved claypot laksa!
