Workbench Bistro @ Ang Mo Kio

Heartland cafes have been popping up here and there recently to attract neighbourhood crowds. Opening up its 1st branch at a mature estate in Ang Mo Kio, Workbench Bistro offer quite a wide selection of food for lunch and dinner crowds. 

What's more, customers can choose from the selection of either Red or Blue velvet Waffle which is quite unique and refreshing to see instead of the usual red velvet waffle. 


Signature Truffle Fries ($9) 

What can go wrong with fries when it was fried with truffle oil? 
Parsley and cheese are added as toppings on top of the fries!!

Salted Egg Wings ($12)

Slightly overpriced i think. 6 pieces of mid wings only. Crispy wings with salted egg sauce taste that make it taste fantastically good!!

Aglio Olio with Smoked Duck ($13) - Fusion food!! Sliced Duck meat with aglio olio, slightly wet which i not sure why and taste bland. Not recommended

Aglio Olio with Chicken ($12) - Grilled chicken breast meat with aglio olio. This is better than the duck meat version, but still slightly bland. I wont recommend their aglio olio.

Salted Egg Chicken Burger ($16) - Burger is the preferred choice, Salted egg chicken filling in a burger, definitely better than the fast food version. LOL 

Pulled Pork Burger ($16)

Burger stuffed with Braised pork and vegetables. Fries sprinkled with chili powder for extra flavour. Highly recommended 

Assorted Ice Cream (From $3.90 onwards)

Differentiate by classic or premium flavours

Waffle with ice cream ($8.70 Premium flavour) This pricing is for normal waffle only

Classic flavour cost $8 thou

Red or Blue velvet Waffle required additional cost......

Takagi Ramen @ Ang Mo Kio

Located at the heartland of Ang Mo Kio, this small little stall sell Japanese Ramen which are affordable yet delicious.Why spend more than $10 to have a bowl of good ramen? Just try it here. Adapted to local hawker style, you just have to order, pay and collect your own food instead of them serve to you.

Condiments are all self service 

Chashu-men ($7) : Tonkotsu pork broth with extra Chashu meat. Slightly cost saving if you top up for extra chashu meat. The broth is really tasty and ramen is not overcooked. Add Ajitama for extra $1(really worth it)
