8th November 2023

Ang Mo Kio food guide

Truth be told, I’d never ventured to Ang Mo Kio until I was attached to someone who lives in the area. Unbeknownst to me, this heartland is popping with eateries selling the likes of cheesy Korean corndogs, and $1.30 dim sum. Thanks to him, I have finally discovered these places. Plus, he has a big appetite, which means I get to order a variety of food. Here’s a list of Ang Mo Kio food spots to check out when you’re in Ang Mo Kio.

1. Kuai San Dian Xin

Ang Mo Kio - Kuai San Dian Xin

A short walk from OCD Cafe is Kuai San Dian Xin, a 24/7 dim sum joint which is incredibly wallet-friendly. With each item on their menu only setting you back $1.50, this hawker stall makes it easy to satisfy your dim sum cravings. You’re spoilt for choice with over 30 options to choose from. These include classics such as char siew pao and fried carrot cake, which has a subtle hae bee hiam flavour. Their HK Style Prawn Chee Cheong Fun is liberally stuffed with prawns and wrapped around a silky rice noodle sheet.

2. Shanghai Renjia

Ang Mo Kio - Shanghai Renjia

If Din Tai Fung is your bae for xiao long bao and la mian, then Shanghai Renjia can be your new side chick. The menu reflects this family-run restaurant’s awe for Shanghai cuisine, offering dishes such as Pan-Fried Buns ($8 for four) and Handmade Noodles ($7) that are freshly made in-house. Their Pan-Fried Buns are basically fried xiao long bao, which are crispy, golden-brown buns encasing a juicy pork filling.

4. Phuket Town Mookata

Phuket Town Mookata - Meat mountain intro shot

Meat-lovers will surely enjoy Phuket Town Mookata, where you can get an XXL 1kg Meat Mountain ($39.90)—a gigantic heap of green curry chicken, tom yum pork collar, black pepper chicken, garlic pork collar, pork belly with signature sauce, and sesame chicken. The meats are well-marinated, and especially delicious when slightly charred. What’s more, the stall has an array of house-made sauces to pair with the meats, of which our favourite was the Original, as it added sweetness to the proteins.

This mountain of meat also comes with processed food items at the base, such as cheese tofu and crabsticks, that are great to cook in the broth around the skillet.

5. SteakGrill

If you’re craving for steak that doesn’t break the bank, check out SteakGrill, a Western bistro hidden within the AMK HDB estate. We recommend heading down for lunch, as all burgers, steaks, and pasta come with free-flow iced lemon tea!

Their NY Striploin ($23) uses the striploin cut, a lesser-known cut that’s no less juicy than its ribeye counterpart. It’s also served alongside fries and a salad, so you get your carbs and greens in as well. We actually enjoyed their Bacon Carbonara ($15) most, as it’s creamy without being jelak, topped with two slabs of tender bacon.

6. Rahim Muslim Food

Rahim Muslim Food - Flatlay

Armed with over 60 years of history is Rahim Muslim Food, best known for their Power Mee Rebus that has drawn long queues to their humble stall. This dish has even gotten the approval of ex-prime minister Goh Chok Tong! Zhng-up the usual mee rebus with their Extra Special Mee Rebus ($6.50), which comes topped with a satay sauce-drenched chicken thigh, chicken drumstick, hard boiled egg, and beansprouts. The gravy was immensely rich, with nutty, sweet, and savoury flavours.

7. Abang Gemuk

Abang Gemuk is a halal Western food stall, started up by the same people behind Fatty Bom Bom. Their name translates to ‘fat bro’ in Malay, a cheeky title that suits the stall’s chubby chef logo.

If you want something for the gram, consider the Cheesy Beef Burger ($8.20). This burger is drenched with nacho cheese, making for IG-worthy visuals. Taste-wise, the cheese can get overwhelming, so we recommend sharing the dish with a friend or two.

8. Banh Mi Sai Gon

banh mi sai gon flatlay

From the outside, Banh Mi Sai Gon looks like an unassuming Vietnamese provision shop in an Ang Mo Kio HDB estate. But step inside and you’ll discover a banh mi takeaway kiosk that local and Vietnamese patrons are all raving about.

The quality of their sandwiches is, in the opinion of our writer who reviewed it, possibly only rivalled by those in Vietnam. Try the Banh Mi Thit Nuong ($8.90) or Banh Mi Pha Lau Heo ($8.90) and see for yourself.

9. Nian Nian Fa Dim Sum

Nian Nian Fa Dim Sum Flatlay

An earlier entry, Kuai San Dian Xin, may have surprised you with their super cheap dim sum, but here’s another place that’s even more affordable. Nian Nian Fa Dim Sum offers dishes such as Siew Mai, Char Siew Bao, and Sesame Fried Ball for just $1.10, while slightly more expensive items, including Chicken Glutinous Rice ($3), are still value-for-money.

10. Magic Kitchen

Magic Kitchen Flatlay

One of the best breakfast spots in Ang Mo Kio, Magic Kitchen serves up local fare that’s bound to warm the soul. For some hearty toast, try the Egg Mayo Thick Toast, which is loaded with generous amounts of egg mayo, all for the price of only $3. If you prefer some noodles for breakfast, go for the Laksa Chee Cheong Fun ($3.50), which comes with two rolls of chee cheong fun in a creamy and spicy laksa gravy.

11. Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodles

For fans of Ipoh’s rich and creamy curry noodles, here’s a place to check out. Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodles manages to nail that style with dishes such as Signature Ipoh Curry Noodles ($6.50), with its slightly sweet and umami gravy that is oh-so-satisfying. You can also get them with some chunky char siew, should you order the Roasted Pork Roasted Char Siew Curry Noodles ($5.50).

11. Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh

Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh holds some really fond memories for me. I used to come here most often with my father after school for lunch. If you asked me if I have a go-to for good bak kut teh in Singapore, this place would be it. Surprisingly, Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh is perhaps more loved for their delicious Pig’s Trotters ($7.50) than their Bak Kut Teh ($7.50) itself. Nevertheless, I highly recommend you bring your friends or family here, so you guys can savour a little of everything. You’ll likely have to queue, but the staff are so efficient, you’ll have your food delivered to your table in no time.  

Address: 341 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, #01-04, Teck Ghee Court Market and Food Centre, Singapore 560341

13. Rasa Sayang

rasa sayang- flatlay

Whether you call it the S-11 AMK Western Food Stall or Rasa Sayang Western Food, it’s a definite favourite among Ang Mo Kio residents. In the past, this hawker stall always had long queues, but when ownership changed hands, the food just wasn’t quite the same.

Now, the OG owners have made a comeback and opened another Rasa Sayang outlet at Ang Mo Kio Blk 347. It’s run by the same old staff, and they’re dishing out those familiar and delicious recipes that earned them such love from the AMK residents.

14. Teck Kee Cooked Food 


Tucked away in Kebun Baru Market is Teck Kee Cooked Food, a noodle stall that sells sheng mian, which some regulars have come to refer to as “Singapore ramen”. They’ve been in operation for four decades now, and to date, the stall still sports queues for up to 20 minutes. You have to try the  Sheng Mian ($4), where QQ noodles are served in a savoury, rich broth akin to tonkatsu ramen. Each serving also comes with minced pork, fishballs, and chunks of pork lard.

This ITE College Central restaurant offers free-flow K-BBQ at just $18 per person—yes, nett!—for weekday lunch. Expect free-flow meat, seafood, vegetables and more to eat to your heart’s content. If you don’t have stomach space for a buffet, check out their hotplate selection, where you get the likes of Saba Fish and Hotplate Beef all priced around $6.

Aside from their classic chicken rice cuts, you can opt to order their Fatbulous Chicken Rice (from $4.50) if you’re a fan of your chicken rice coming with that crunchy layer of gelatin.

18. Hong Heng Beef Noodle Soup & Laksa

Kebun Baru Food Centre - Hong Heng Beef Noodle and Laksa

If you love both beef noodles and laksa, prepare to get blown away by the Mixed Beef Laksa (from $6) down at Hong Heng Beef Noodles and Laksa. Tender slices of beef soak up the creamy, coconut broth, resulting in a euphoric burst of flavour in your mouth. We loved the chilli dip too, which gave the dish an extra spicy kick. Opt for the Dry Beef Noodles (from $5) instead, if you prefer your soup base thicker and less spicy. We recommend squeezing in some lime as well, to add a sourish punch to your meal.

Wanton mee lovers will definitely know of Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee, which brings the Bangkok staple to Singapore. Expect a crowd here, even early in the day, but their dish is well worth the wait. Al dente mee kia is sprinkled with a dash of lard oil, chilli flakes, and green chilli, then garnished with char siew and golden wonton packed with minced pork. You also get a side of broth, which comes with soup wontons equally generous with its filling.
