Located in the heart of vibrant Amoy Street, Avenue 87 is a Modern Asian restaurant that embodies and celebrates the two personal journeys – beginning with its name. Born in the same year, 1987, Glen and Alex both spent childhoods in Hougang: Glen at Avenue 8; Alex – you guessed it – at Avenue 7.
Housed within warm, sophisticated ambience of a 2-storey conservation shophouse, Chefs Glen and Alex bring to the table well-loved Asian favourites, given a creative twist using traditional and contemporary techniques. Many components are prepared from scratch; the local and the artisanal are celebrated. Old and new methods are explored and often combined. The familiar flavours of childhood, and the dishes they love to eat today, are the starting points of their innovation, the end results bringing a sense of nostalgia and comfort to the diner.
What sets the restaurant apart is the seamless synergy of co-Chef-Founders Glen Tay and Alex Phan, and the unique brand of creativity and innovation they bring. Also special is the platform given to dynamic brands, producers, and talents of Singapore and the region.
