‘Western Food’ in Singapore is mainly based on English and Italian dishes that have been adapted to the local palate, and simplified into simply Western food. Yea, back in the days most people wouldn’t understand what aglio olio is would they.

At Toa Payoh Lorong 1 Hawker Centre, Wang’s Western is probably overshadowed by all the other fantastic conventional local food like Chicken Rice, Orh Lua and Wanton Mee.
But should you give Wang’s Western a chance? Definitely.
