Jiakpalang Eating House
Affordable mod-Sin dishes in a zi char style set-up
For anyone who enjoys the thrill of mod-Sin cuisine, but rejects the extravagance it's so often packaged in, Jiakpalang Eating House is a casual dining establishment with a viable compromise—the same (novel) creations, but eaten in a set-up near and dear to any Singaporean’s heart. To keep local cuisine and traditions alive, Jiakpalang works like a typical zi char stall, where the menu consists solely of dishes meant to be ordered in an assortment and paired with rice.
The dishes are unique but inspired by local favorites, and conceptualized by Chef Nixon Low. There’s the Charcoal Katarosu Pork Collar ($16), a modern take on zi char staple coffee pork ribs; “Ang Ji Kao” Stout-Braised Beef Cheek ($17), a homage to Guinness stout-drinking uncles; and a Milo Dinosaur ($8) dessert that looks every bit as sinful as the original treat. Bringing together food, people and experiences, Jiakpalang takes its cheekily referenced name (ie. "chapalang") and turns it into a communal dining experience that warms both the stomach and the heart.
