The new Lentor MRT station on Thomson-East Coast line is located in a serene part of Singapore, surrounded by nature and landed residences. The parcel of land next to it will be developed into Lentor Modern, a 1.7ha integrated mixed-use development with both residential and 96,000 sqft commercial spaces including a 12,000 sqft supermarket and 10,000 sqft childcare centre. We were tasked by the good people of GuocoLand to recommend good eats around the area. So, after some research, we are excited to present the following food trail which features four dining enclaves, all within 10mins of Lentor MRT Modern!
Dining Enclave #1: Ang Mo Kio 628 Market
Just a 10 min walk away is the bustling AMK 628 Market and Food Centre which is the nearest heartland market and food centre.
Aside from being able to buy fresh fish, meats and vegetables, the market also has a 43 year old stall that sells roast and braised meats. They have a very unique rolled crispy pork belly which is not so commonly seen. They also sell braised pig’s head and braised duck as well as the usual charsiu and siobak.
Seng Ji HongKong Roast Meats
We like the rolled siobak as they stuff the meat with extra seasoning ingredients like lemongrass and chilli. The owner tells us that they got the inspiration from Thailand. Because it is rolled, the meat doesn’t lose as much moisture, so it was tender and juicy. The skin wasn’t as crisp as we’d like because it was left in the box for a while. We suggest that you buy the entire roll and roast it in the oven for 15 mins to heat it up and crisp the skin before chopping for the best results. 4/5
The rest of the roasts are decent. They are...
