Do you find yourself going all the way to town or other parts of Singapore just for the sake of visiting a café? Perhaps you are organising a weekly family dinner and everyone just craves for delicious and mouth-watering local food?
Let us reveal a secret area that only the North-Experts know. If your friends and family living in the area told you that there’s nothing to eat in the North, you’re in for a real treat. Many good makan-places can be found in the North. We know if we talk about the entire area as a whole, it’ll take you months and months to discover the area and search for that one eatery you desire. Of course, we got your back covered.
Presenting… Yio Chu Kang! We’re not talking about the local sitcom with Gurmit Singh as Phua Chu Kang, or the West’s Choa Chu Kang. Familiar with that name right?
In case you didn’t know, the area derived its name from the Yio Chu Kang village, and is still known for lush greenery and low-density housing. Though it’s still a relatively new area in Singapore, we can tell you that amazing food is hard to come by! Before you dismiss Yio Chu Kang as just one of those ulu areas of Singapore, you need to see for yourselves the cafes, restaurants and essentially cheap food that we found on a recent visit. You will be mind-blown on how accessible these areas are.
These are our great food recommendations you could go to visit in Yio Chu Kang.
