Opened by the team behind The Brewing Ground in Joo Chiat, RIANG is a new casual dining concept along Jalan Riang, in the Serangoon neighbourhood which doles out brunch, larger mains, coffee and cocktails. It officially opens to the public today (2 Nov 2022).
RIANG is taking over the space by the former Babba (which is also by The Brewing Ground). This came as as a surprise as the now-defunct Peranankan cafe & restaurant only opened in late Feb this year, and it seems too soon to forgot a new concept like that.
Well, maybe the Peranankan concept didn’t work out and the owners have more exciting plans for RIANG.
Amika Cafe & Bar is the newest cafe to open in the Serangoon neighbourhood, taking over the space vacated by Two Bakers at 9 Teck Chye Terrace.
It opened on 8 May 2022 with a soft-launch menu serving all-day brunch, Asian-inspired mains and drinks.
