Old Chang Kee Returns To Rex With A Flagship Coffee House And A Bigger Menu

Let me start by saying that fried food is a blessing. Whoever thought of frying nuggets of meat, you’re a genius.

And nobody in Singapore does fried food better than Old Chang Kee. Nobody. Don’t argue with me on this.

Old Chang Kee has been around since 1956, way before Singapore was independent. It was operating as a small stall in a coffeeshop outside the former Rex Cinema along Mackenzie Road in 1986.

Now, Old Chang Kee has opened its first flagship coffee house in the place where it all began, at Rex along Mackenzie Road.

Old Chang Kee: Homecoming

The 50-seater coffee house occupies 3 shophouses along Mackenzie Road, a stark contrast from its humble beginnings as a small stall.

I remember there were a few Old Chang Kee outlets around the island that were offering more substantial mains together with their usual fried food. But they eventually discontinued the mains and my days were darker than before.

Drama aside, I (still) love their Beef Stew and the best part is that this is one of the dishes that can be found at the Old Chang Kee Coffee House.

The Baked Beef Stew Rice With Cheese ($10.90) is served in a mess tin, an odd reminder of my days outfield in NS.

That’s not all, there’s the interesting Flower Bread with free-flow gravy of your choice. Options include Chicken Stew, Beef Stew and Curry Chicken.

If you’ve seen any Tasty video or Pizza Hut commercial, you’d have seen pull-apart bread and the likes and this is pretty much it. Pull-apart buns with a bowl of gravy in the middle for dipping. Comfort food at its best, to be honest.

Other dishes available include the Dry Laksa Goreng ($8.50), Nasi Lemak With Dry Curry Chicken ($8.90), and the Bubur Chacha ($5).

Of course, as with every Old Chang Kee outlet, they also have their usual fried finger food available. Which means I can have both my favourite Crab Nuggets and the Beef Stew. This is a win.

This Old Chang Kee flagship coffee house is a place you need to check out because who else knows old school food better than a brand that’s been around since 1956?
