JC Coffee Houzz: Nostalgia Meets Contemporary At Joo Chiat
Tucked along Joo Chiat Road, JC Coffee Houzz simply exudes old school vibes marriage with modern lines. First impression of this cafe reminded me Col Bar Cafe at 9A Whitchurch Rd. Both serving popular foods during Singapore’s colonial days, such as Hainanese Pork Chop Rice and Western fare, but with a modern touch here at JC Coffee Houzz.
I ordered the Hainanese Pork Chop Rice ($9.6) while Tony ordered the Grilled Pork Chop Rice ($10.8).
Hainanese Pork Chop Rice – Reminded me of a home-cooked meal and life’s simple pleasure. I can’t say that it was superb and neither was it bad. A thicker cut may have sealed the deal?
Grilled Pork Chop – Nice char grilled flavour given to the tender pork. JC Coffee Houzz got to super size it to justify its price!
Freshly out from the steamer, thus was piping hot when served. Uncertain about their supplier, but I gave it a 3/5 grade.
Desserts are available as well. Wanted to go for waffles ($7.8 and $10.8), but I gotta be a little more conservative with my spending! For coffee lovers, coffee filtered with socks are the way to go here! Family set meals at $48 for 2 and $98 for 4 are available too.
The restaurant sets a great location for group gatherings, business meetings, or romantic dinners that would bring people together for a meal of comfort food.
