The Place - Curry Times is Old Chang Kee's new cafe/restaurant concept. Stepping into Curry Times feels like being transported back in time to a Seventies coffee shop with marble topped tables and wooden chairs. It has a casual, laid back,retro vibe with bird cages suspended from the ceiling adding olde world charm, and piped in sentimental Chinese oldies playing softly in the background.The Food - You won't find Old Chang Kee's signature Curry O (deepfried curry puffs with a wedge of hardboiled
The Food - You won't find Old Chang Kee's signature Curry O (deepfried curry puffs with a wedge of hardboiled egg within) and popular skewered snacks being sold here. Instead, the menu offers a selection of Asian, Peranakan, Hainanese dishes. Curry is the higlight here and we ordered the signature chicken curry which was rich, concentrated, fragrant with generous pieces of chicken thigh and chicken breast. The curry goes so well with plain rice that we finished every morsel and drained the last drop of gravy from the bowl. There is a weekday lunch promotion where each order of chicken curry comes with your choice of side dishes such as Hainanese chap chye, homemade salmon otah, etc and a cup of coffee or tea. After 2pm on weekdays there is a tea time special when their big & yummy chicken curry bun and a cup of coffee/tea costs just $2.50. We will return in a bigger group soon to try their fish head curry and other dishes like spicy chicken wing, ngoh hiang, beef stew The Prices - Very reasonable with most item& meals priced below $10 - the exception being the fish head curry.
The Service - Cheerful and efficient crew.
