Where to eat in Ang Mo Kio

The seventh housing estate developed by HDB in the 1970s received its name from a colloquial slang. ‘Ang mo kio’ translates literally to ‘red-haired man’s bridge’, referring to Caucasians as ang mohs because of their red hair. The bridge, long demolished, is thought to refer to John Turnbull's bridge over Kallang River near what is now the junction of Upper Thomson Road and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1. BiTES goes in search of hawker finds, unexpected contemporary cafes, and colourful HDB housing blocks—where you can find almost everything you need.
