The North East zone has been fairly neglected in terms of must-visit cafes and food joints – until The Midtown’s opening in early 2017. Since then, a fair number of F&B joints have opened, giving Hougang more food options beyond the usual hawker fare.
Here are just some places worth checking out at this up and coming spot!
One of the first cafes to take up residence, Foxhole Cafe has since expanded from a tiny menu consisting mostly of baked goods and cakes, to include hearty rice bowls. Look out for their Instagram worthy Foxhole Signature Yakult Soda, which photographs great against a galaxy-themed unicorn painted on the wall of their dining area!

Inspired by London’s hippest cereal themed cafe, Cereal Killer, Cereal Citizen is one of the cutesiest entrants on this list. Co-owned by blogger Bong Qiuqiu, this pastel-themed cafe offers 24 varieties of cereal – some of them not available in Singapore – as well as crododos (donut-shaped croissants), milkshakes, and ice cream – all artfully embellished with a cereal of your choice.
