Ang Mo Kio’s hidden gems

Beyond wet markets and hawker centres, the self-sufficient hood of Ang Mo Kio (AMK) is also home to upscale nosh and other hip offerings. We share our favorites below.

Arbite
Sure it’s not quite in the hood, but take a 10 minute drive out to Serangoon Gardens and you’ll be rewarded with all-day breakfasts and solid mains like Green Tea Tagliatalle with Smoked Duck and Malabar Chicken. The $10 express lunch set, offered from 11.30 am to 2.30 pm on weekdays, is a steal.
