Once popularly known as an expat enclave in the 50s, this quaint suburban town has turned into a stimulating gastronomic destination, from the long-standing fixture of Chom Chomp to contemporary cafes and intercontinental cuisine restaurants.

Let’s take a look at the best grubs near Serangoon Garden.

  1. Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Mee

Considered to be a total champ in Chomp Chomp among Serangoon locals, their fried Hokkien Mee, with prices from $3-$5 per serving, made its way to the Michelin list.

The never-can-go-wrong noodle dish is a mixture of thick yellow, thin bee hoon noodles softened in rich and flavorful prawn broth that clings to each strand gracefully. Season it with sambal and calamansi for a more satisfying treat.

Get your serving from 5:30 PM – 12 midnight daily, except on Monday.

  1. Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen

Hailed as the best tonkatsu in Singapore, the premium pork loin took quite a travel to reach your plate as they source it directly from Japan.

With the recipes developed and mastered by the highly-trained Chef Tan, we recommend the Premium Pork Loin set at $22.90 for an ultimate tonkatsu experience.

Say “hajimemashite” at #02-07/8/9, myVillage, Serangoon Gardens, 11:30 AM – 2:45 PM and 5:00 PM – 9:30 PM daily.

Hanging Roast Duck

  1. Ah Seng Braised Duck Rice

Don’t be surprised if you friend yourself in a queue for 15 minutes to get your infamous duck rice serving. This family-owned restaurant at Serangoon Garden Way has been drawing crowds since 1994.

At $3.50 a plate, you can enjoy a generous serving of tender and succulent duck meat, braised in a lightly herbal and rich sauce, and pairs wonderfully with white rice.

Visit them from 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM Mon to Friday, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturday, closed on Sunday.

  1. RK Eating House

Quite a name for a restaurant it might be, but this 24-hour Indian restaurant at 1 Kensington Park Rd. is a stalwart of Serangoon.

The mysterious “RK Special” ($7) is a force to be reckoned with, featuring a pool of mutton curry, two wobbly soft-boiled eggs, and sauce-drenched crispy prata.

  1. Lau Wang Claypot Delights

Nestled under an HDB flat at 263 Serangoon Central, this restaurant has been serving sizzling hot clay pot dishes for 30 years.

With over 16 items to choose from, we recommend, in a heartbeat, the Sizzling Claypot Sesame Chicken ($5.50 small and $7.80 large) for its thick gravy of sesame oil and garlic and juicy pieces of chicken.

Best paired with rice to balance the moreish flavor. Sizzling daily, from 11:00 AM – 9:30 PM.
