What it’s like Ang Mo Kio is home to numerous markets and food centers, but one of the most venerable is housed in Block 724 on Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6. Located in the heart of the district, next to AMK Hub, the market and food centre has been a popular draw for local heartlanders from around the island since 1980. It received a major facelift in 2008, though it remains in its standard covered food centre structure, with an attached namesake wet market on the premises.
What to eat There are 45 food stalls, with numerous Singaporean standard fare, such as char kway teow, chicken rice and carrot cake.
Of these, check out Ang Mo Kio Char Kway Teow (#01-28), one of the oldest stalls at the hawker centre, which fries up their tasty noodles for $3-$3.50. The steamed chicken rice ($2.50) at Seng Bee Hainanese Chicken Rice (#01-31) is a regular draw; but if you’re prepared to wait, line up for the soft and crispy white carrot cake ($2-$4) at Lim Hai Sheng Cooked Food (#01-09), which is one of the not-to-miss spots. Other popular stalls include Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo (#01-23) which has received rave reviews, particularly for the chewy bee hoon and fragrant sweet sauce of its yong tau foo ($0.30-$1 per piece; minimum $2.50). There’s also an ever-present queue at Hong Chang Wanton Mee (#01- 21), whose wanton mee ($2.50) offers a delightful combination of golden, velvety mee kia, char siew and crispy fried dumplings. Finally, get your sweet fix at Guan Heng Desserts (#01-22), otherwise known affectionately as AJ Ice by those who studied at the nearby Anderson Junior College until it moved here, with its mountainous serving of ice kachang ($2.30).
