Serangoon Gardens Food Guide – 14 Restaurants, Cafes & Eateries To Dine At

Serangoon Gardens Guide

Serangoon Gardens is one of the oldest estates in Singapore with a history so rich. And it is home to some of the best restaurants and cafes, with household names such as Pow Sing Restaurant & Chomp Chomp Food Centre. But apart from the hoi polloi of barbecue seafood joints, Serangoon Gardens has so much more to offer.

It is a rather populated private residential estate, but the residents have it all because it is such a self-contained area when it comes to food. Whatever you have a taste for, we can be pretty sure you can have (most of) your cravings satisfied.
