Home to an enclave of mouth-watering cafes and restaurants, Serangoon Gardens is a foodie heaven second to none in Singapore. With new eateries popping up here so often, it is undoubtedly the perfect place to bring out the glutton in you!
The Larder Café first started in Toa Payoh in 2016 and they have recently opened another new outlet in Serangoon Gardens, taking over the premise of the now-defunct Arbite which closed down after 9 years.
Boasting a plethora of mains, brunch, big bites and desserts, you can expect to be torn between their delectable options. There’s even alcoholic drinks and a kids’ menu!
Aside from cheap shopping and shiok massages, another thing that keeps people coming back to Bangkok is their diverse food scene. The streets and malls here are packed with a smorgasbord of scrumptious eats and we easily find ourselves spoilt for choice every single time we come to this glutton’s paradise.
If you don’t know where to begin the feasting, we suggest that you start at Yaowarat, Bangkok’s Chinatown. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of food options here but fret not, we have created this short guide to help you narrow down your choices.
Since the announcement in late August, the much-anticipated Monga, founded by Taiwanese celebrity and comedian Nono, has finally opened its first-ever local outlet at Jem in Jurong East, serving up thick, fresh and juicy fried chicken cutlets!
If you are thinking that this is the first overseas outlet to join their more than 45 outlets in Taiwan, you’d be surprised to know that since its establishment in its home country, Monga has since expanded overseas to countries like Canada, USA, UK, Philippines and Malaysia!
If the name Prodigal Café seems to ring a bell, that’s because the eatery is the sister café of the now-defunct Prodigal Roasters which was previously located in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio.
Now, the charming little café resides in a tiny space underneath a HDB block at Macpherson Lane, where it is home to yummy sandwiches, toasties and specialty coffee.
Taking over the space of the now-defunct D’Zerts Cafe is the newest hidden gem in the East of Singapore, The Forage Cafe by Thirteen Honey in Simpung Bedok. Their extensive menu features a plethora of all-day brunch, pasta and mains. What’s great is that they also are trying to incorporate their own farmed honey (from Malaysia) into all their dishes as a sugar replacement!
That’s not all! If you were a fan of D’zerts Cafe’s sweet creations, you’ll be happy to know that D’zerts still supplies bakes and desserts to The Forage Cafe.
Fans of Taiwan’s famous fiery hot chicken brand, Devil Chicken, will be excited to know that they will finally be opening their first permanent outlet in Singapore. This is great news for those of you who didn’t manage to get your hands on some of their chicken at the Shilin Market event earlier this year.
The store will be opening at Century Square on the 4th of October 2019 and judging by the 4-hour queues at the Shilin Market event, be prepared for even longer queues here at their permanent store!
While Dim Sum may be a traditional staple that you would find all around Hong Kong, it is not a form of cuisine that we are short of in Singapore.
