Nakhon Kitchen Ang Mo Kio – Delicious and affordable Thai food in the heartlands

Since I blogged about Nakhon Kitchen last year, I had been back to the restaurant countless times whenever my craving for Thai food kicked in. It never fails to satisfy my palate and tummy every time. When I came back from my latest Bangkok trip, I had a really bad hangover (+ weight gain too, […]

OPPA Chicken opens express outlet at Ang Mo Kio coffeeshop – Bringing K.F.C. to the heartlands

Not the fast food brand but Korean Fried Chicken. This Broadway Kopitiam at Blk 721 Ang Mo Kio Ave 8 is now one of my favourite coffeeshops in Ang Mo Kio because it houses food stalls that offer a pretty good range of different cuisines like Astons Express (affordable, tasty Western food), Ci Wen Vegetarian […]

Nakhon Kitchen – The best neighbourhood gem in Singapore that offers cheap & good Thai food

I had only just hopped onto the Nakhon Kitchen bandwagon last year. Probably still a few years too late but nonetheless I’m very glad that there is a NK branch near where I live so whenever I’m craving for food from the Land of Smiles, this is the place to go. And I’m sure many […]

Hong Heng Beef Noodle Soup and Laksa @ Kebun Baru Food Centre

Like many foodies out there, the husband and I sometimes face what’s commonly known as a ‘first world problem’ because we always don’t know what to eat even though there is a huge hawker centre in our neighbourhood and several coffee shops too. To me, I guess it’s a happy problem because it spurs me on […]

Qi Le Boneless Chicken Rice @ Ang Mo Kio Central

The husband and I had probably passed by this S11 food court umpteen times whenever we headed to NTUC Fairprice at AMK Hub for our weekly grocery shopping. Every time, we’d see a long queue at this chicken rice stall but had never given it a try. Recently we were there again and as it was raining […]

Yuen Long Hong Kong Pastry & Buns 元朗(香港)饼家 @ Ang Mo Kio Central

Right after Baker Talent opened for business at Ang Mo Kio Central, I spotted another new bakery Yuen Long Hong Kong Pastry & Buns just diagonally across which always has a queue of patrons whenever I pass by. Not a bad thing actually. It just means we have more choices of bakeries in the town central now. The husband […]

Face Ban Mian 非板面 @ Ang Mo Kio Central

I think I’m quite a ‘biased’ ban mian eater because I only go for my favourite Qiu Lian Ban Mian and I don’t give others a chance after having had some bad ones. This time round, I was surprised I decided to give a new ban mian stall a try, probably because I was captivated by its […]

Hao Qing Xiang 好清香 AMK 628 – Homemade Chee Cheong Fun, Steamed Yam Cake & Tapioca Cake

One good thing about having a BBC (British-born Chinese) husband (who shares the same passion in food) as my BMB (Best Makan Buddy) is that I get to revisit many of my old favourite food places and also discover new ones too as we explore a different part of Singapore every week. He makes me see my homeland from […]

[Closed] Xing Hua Vegetarian 興化素食館 @ S11, Ang Mo Kio Central

Update: This has closed and is replaced by a Thai food stall. I was chit-chatting with the yong tau foo stall owner at the wet market near my home couple of days ago who told me the new tenant 2 units away would be selling chilled and frozen vegetarian food products. Yay! I’m already looking forward […]

Xing Long Teochew Porridge 興隆潮州糜 @ Blk 632 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4

Like many fellow Teochews, I’ve always liked orh nee (yam paste), braised duck, steamed pomfret, cold crabs as well as hot piping porridge that I never seem to get sick of because there are just so many different choices of ingredients that I can choose from every time I’m at a stall like this. This particular […]

Penang Delights Prawn Mee & Lor Mee @ S11, Ang Mo Kio Central

Penang Delights was voted as one of the top prawn noodle stalls in Singapore by Channel U viewers. Indeed, it is also one of my two favourite places to go to for a tasty bowl of prawn noodles besides Whitley Road Big Prawn Mee. This stall is located at the S11 Food Court (in front of […]

The revamped Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park that I grew up with

My husband and I felt adventurously motivated to take a brisk walk (approx. 6.5km) to Junction 8 via the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park route. It was also my first return to the park in more than 10 years and it is just amazing to see how much Bishan Park has changed since the 90s. I […]

Astons Express – Quality Food, Heartland Price

This is part II to my earlier Astons Express post. Again, this has risen to the rank of my ‘should regularly visit eateries’ in Singapore. Why is this so? For its food quality (and quantity) and of course, for its affordable prices. That explains its popularity esp. among the students.   Mushroom Soup ($3.00)   […]

Gim Tim Restaurant 锦珍酒楼 at Ang Mo Kio

It has always been a challenge to me to find a good Chinese restaurant where the entire family will enjoy given the different tastes and high expectations we (esp. the older folks) all have with food. So for Dad’s birthday this year, I decided to bring the family to this little air-conditioned restaurant tucked away […]

Astons Express at Ang Mo Kio Central

Hubby and I were exploring a part of Ang Mo Kio Central which we usually don’t frequent and surprisingly we noticed a really long queue at the coffee shop. I had heard raving reviews of Astons but had never tried it and since we had the time, we decided to just go for it. Normally, […]

Fish & Co. – Wholesome Seafood in a Pan Part 2

My colleague and I decided to indulge in some comfort food after a depressing day at work.                     Sharkie Freeze ($6.50 per big glass for 2-pax to share) Their signature passion fruit blend that is huge enough to be shared by 2 persons. Have them split […]
