Stowed away below the HDB block is At The Myo (ATM), serving Western, Asian and fusion dishes. If you’re coming by train or bus, just walk along Block 4 and you’ll be sure to catch a glimpse of the colourful signage at the storefront.
Vintage posters are plastered along the glass panes and pillars for a retro touch which might string along a sense of nostalgia for the older generation.
The restaurant uses a variety of coloured chairs, which adds an element of fun and quirkiness to the place. Additionally, quotes are painted onto the walls together with small pictures or icons. Of course this presents nothing less than Instagram opportunities to fill your feed up.
You can choose to have your meal either indoors or at the tables outside the restaurant. If the inside seems a little too congested for you, just request for a seat outside.
Now for the food:
The first dish we tried was the Tom Yum Prawn Pasta ($11). We were presented with a bowl filled with spaghetti, prawns, mushroom and the Tom Yum Sauce. Just imagine a full-bodied Tom Yum soup but creamier and thicker. We felt the sauce was an interesting take on this traditionally Thai soup.
The sauce coated the noodles well and had a good balance of salty, spicy and sour. However, this dish definitely had a kick to it which might not suit everyone’s palette. Try asking for less spicy if you’re not a big fan of chillies.
We were given a total of 5 prawns which were succulent and well cooked. At the price point, we felt that this dish was worth it given the abundance of ingredients.
For those of you who prefer rice to noodles (myself included), the Hae Bi Hiam Bacon Fried Rice ($12) is for you! Hae Bi are small dried shrimps usually used in chinese cooking. This dish utilises a spicy cooked version of these shrimps to fry the rice, in order to release a strong seafood-y aroma.
The umami flavour in the dish was particularly prominent, with the bacon complimenting and accentuating the flavour of the Hae Bi. Burst the yolk of the perfectly cooked sunny-side up egg for an added richness.
This fried rice was very moreish, but we felt that for what we got, the dish was a tad too expensive.
If you prefer something closer to home, or want a snack to go with your beers, Prawn Paste Wings ($7) are for you. Also known as Har Cheong Gai, this finger-food is definitely a local favourite. What we got here was similar to the standard of any Tze Char stall.
Crispy, golden-brown and savoury, these wings were average and we felt could go with a squeeze of calamansi for acidity or a special chilli/sauce to make it stand out more.
Thirsty after all that food? The Avocado Gula Melaka ($5) is the way to go. The drink was refreshing yet light, a good way to wash down the mains and sides. The avocado drink itself was thick and gao (they surely didn’t skimp on any ingredients here). The gula melaka lent a sweet, caramel-y touch to the drink which made it pleasant and suitable for both kids and adults.
Hit up ATM during their happy hour for beer and finger-food while chilling with your friends and family.
For cafe food, we felt that this place was particularly affordable and we could get a decent meal without having to for out more than $15. We’ll be back and hope you’ll give this place a shot as well!
