Abang Gemuk serves yummy western food at Ang Mo Kio
Updated: Nov 13, 2018
Abang Gemuk opened on the 1st of October and when we visited it just 2 weeks after the opening, the coffee shop was packed with people waiting for their food!
So many choices to choose from and at such an affordable price! After thinking for a long time we settled on trying Gemuk Grill which seems to be their signature dish and Black Pepper Chicken Chop. We had originally wanted to get the Half Chicken but unfortunately they did not have it that day.
We were told that the waiting time was 1.5 hours and it did come as a shock as we did see many tables waiting for their food but We didn't know it will be this long. But since we were already there, we decided to wait.
Because we expected a 1.5 hours wait, it was an exciting moment when the food arrived within 45 mins.
Both dishes were pretty similar with the sauce and side dishes being the same. The only difference was that the Gemuk Grill had lamb and beef on top of the chicken. The sauce was thick and savory and the lamb and beef were tender to eat. But my favorite was the chicken! The skin was charred to perfection and we loved how the slight bitterness of the skin goes well with the sauce.
The sides were generous in portion. The fries were fried and seasoned well, the coleslaw was tasty and the bun was soft and fluffy.
Overall, the experience was a positive one. Yes the wait time was quite long but I'm sure this is just due to the store being relatively new, the food more than makes up for that. We would definitely visit again!
