Where: Alex Lee Kitchen
The roti canai at this Singaporean stall is cheap and the perfect side or light main dish. You get a jumble of thin, light, stretchy, chewy, crisp roti aside three little dips: a salty, fish-dense sambal, a coconutty laksa fragrant with lemongrass, and our pick, a bright red, spice-driven chicken curry that we could drink by the gallon. Want to up the protein stakes? Pay an extra $3 and get a big slab of chook with that roti instead of the other sauces (order ‘number four’).
Spice Alley can be a minefield. So many stalls; so many people; so many delicious choices. What do you order amongst the chaos? Don’t worry, Sydney, we got you. We filled our card with credit (this is a cash-free envrionment) and trawled through the stalls to find the winning dishes.
