If you’re in Ang Mo Kio and need a bite, you might want to check out newly halal-certified The Peddler’s Tuckshop.
Let us just say upfront that whilst the cafe’s location is a bit remote (unless you work or study in ITE College Central), the food offered here is relatively cheap.
So if you’re on a budget, read on to see what you can get at The Peddler’s Tuckshop.
Range of affordable mains
The cafe serves a small selection of main dishes, but its main appeal has to be the lok lok, a popular Chinese street food that’s befitting of the shop’s name.
The skewered items go for S$1 per stick, and diners can opt for a either a noodle soup base for S$2 or the macaroni soup set for S$3.
Those who feel like having rice dishes will also be pleased to know that the cafe serves Nasi Lemak (from S$3.50), Chicken Rice (S$4.50) and Nasi Briyani (S$6).
However, take note that the rice dishes rotate on a daily basis, according to a photo of this menu:
Similarly, the S$4 noodle dishes are also assigned a day of the week (e.g. Mee Rebus on Wednesday, Mee Soto on Thursday), except for Mee Siam which is available daily. Yay!
Drinks here are served in old-school enamel mugs, with choices including familiar favourites like Milo, Bandung, Horlicks, and Hong Kong Milk Tea!
The cafe’s aesthetics definitely evoke the look and feel of the street peddlers scene of the 1960s.
From the low stools to the vintage tech gadgets of that era, each fixture within the eatery is a recreation of what can be found in Singapore’s past. Groovy!
