There’s also a huge variety of popular stalls, selling dishes such as fish soup, mee rebus, bak kut teh and plenty more.

Cai Ji Fried Fish Soup is one of the most popular fish soup stalls in Ang Mo Kio. They’re best known for offering generous bowls of Red Grouper Fish Soup, priced at $10. If the price sounds steep to you, the quality and the freshness of the fish are, we assure you, very worth it. Else, get their regular Sliced Fish Soup, which starts at $5, or the Double Taste Fish Soup, from $5.50. The latter includes the parcels of golden-brown fried fish slices, which the stall is known for.
