Chinese food in Singapore comes in many forms, with every region of the world’s most populous nation represented. Over on Upper Serangoon Road, Fragrant Garden specialises in Teochew cuisine, from the dialect group centred around Chaoshan and eastern Guangdong, and their house signatures represent the very best of the culinary tradition in that region. Try the stuffed sea cucumber, cold crab or steamed halibut – all done in the Teochew style – alongside signature noodle and rice dishes including ee-fu noodle with gravy or sambal fried rice. Reserve ahead at this Serangoon gem before seats fill up.
While the majority of the attention among Singapore’s Chinese restaurants might be focused on the celebrated cuisines that come from Sichuan, with its numbing peppercorns and plenty of chillies; from Beijing, with the iconic Peking duck; or from Canton, rich and well-balanced in nature; you’d do well to remember that there’s still a whole lot more to Chinese fare. Over in Serangoon, Fragrant Garden flies the flag high when it comes to Teochew cuisine – delivering light, yet flavourful dishes that were mostly prepared by steaming, poaching, or braising.
With a wide-ranging menu that encompasses everything from seafood to meat, egg and tofu, to even noodle and rice dishes, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Fragrant Garden. Don’t let that overwhelm you, however, as the affable crew at this Serangoon restaurant is always on hand to assist you with a handful of recommendations. Our favourites include the local spinach in broth, stir-fried venison with garlic and onion, steamed pomfret in Teochew style, black pepper crayfish, as well as the signature fried rice. Conveniently located along Upper Serangoon Road, a stone’s throw away from Serangoon MRT, Fragrant Garden counts among Singapore’s most-sought after Chinese restaurants. Get down with your friends and family for an authentic Teochew feast, but do remember to reserve well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Good taste and fair price. Saturday and Sunday have to book in advance. Try the traditional jelly pork cubes and the mee goreng. Authentic taste of yesterday.
Resercation was done without a hitch. Table was already prepared before arrival. Good food that are good value for money. Will definitely return for more in future!
Food was great, service was good. Price was reasonable - there wasn't even service charge. The chilli crayfish we got was delicious. Would recommend this place .
Great teohew cuisine at affordable prices around my neighbourhood! A must order is the braised duck, cai po omellete and orh nee for dessert. Good service too!
Food was excellent and the service staff to customer ratio was good. Will def go back again. Better if they allowed BYO or at least no corkage for first bot of wine
Very delicious Teochew food. I have been there many times and will definitely recommend this place to friends and relatives. I love their yam dessert too.
The food is good and tasty. The place is air condition, very spacious on weekends and parking is convenient. The price is reasonable for a restaurant.
Food is excellent as usual. As a teochew, this is as authentic as it gets for a fraction of the price you get at bigger restaurants!
The food in this restaurant is delicious and cheap. Remember to book a table on the weekends earlier to make sure that you have a space.
4th visit for the past 3 mths. We tried all the signature dishes in the menu, and all are thumb up, will definitely go back again.
