Caribbean Goat Curry

$28.00 · 6 Reviews

1. I’d been wanting to visit Kafe Utu for MONTHS now but only managed to drop by over the weekend as we had to wait for their renovations to complete!
2. Personally not a fan of bad reviews but I am also not a fan of fake BS reviews some food bloggers post in order to score sponsored meals 😂🙅🏻‍♀️ We don’t do that here.
3. So here’s my honest, unfiltered, #notsponsored food review of Kafe Utu (and maybe my friend’s as well). Side note: I’ve only seen and heard positive reviews of this place prior to my visit.
4. My friend ordered a latte (I heard the coffee is good but she said it’s not amazing) and we ordered three food items: Caribbean Goat Curry ($28), scrambled eggs ($4) and marinated goat cheese ($7). Because of the price, we decided to share a main and order some sides.
5. First off, the goat curry comes with coconut rice (not a big fan). The portion size is not a lot, and for what it is, this main is pretty expensive. I wouldn’t recommend travelling all the way to 12 Jiak Chuan Road for this food that tastes like SQ airplane food. It tastes like the kind of curry you order on a flight to London. I’ve never had actual Caribbean goat curry so can’t comment on the authenticity of this dish but this is what it tasted like to me: airplane food.
6. Second, the scrambled eggs at $4 is affordably priced. However, definitely not the best scrambled eggs I’ve had, the eggs were quite thin, like the kind of egg you get in fried rice.
7. Thirdly, according to my friend, the tiny goat cheese tasted like it came from a deli. It really didn’t look or taste marinated to us. At $7, we definitely don’t recommend ordering this small, overpriced goat cheese.
8. Would I come back and visit Kafe Utu again? No, it’s kind of out of the way and the food and service isn’t amazing. I’m also unsure as to how authentically African this place is 🤷🏻‍♀️ Also they are not GST registered and there’s no service charge so the prices are as per the menu.
9. All views expressed here are my own personal opinions based on my own experience I paid for and is not meant or intended to be defamatory, slanderous and/or libellous in any way towards Kafe Utu and/or anyone connected with it.

Fresh goat meat, house curry paste & habanero (served with coconut rice). You can expect a strong gamy flavour from the goat. The curry paste helps to minimise the strong gamy flavour, and the spiciness of this dish is definitely higher compared to the rest of the African dishes

Located along Jiak Chuan Road, this beautifully done up cafe is set to win the hearts of cafe-hoppers. The menu is split between African nosh and the usual brunch suspects. Expect dishes like a creamy and tender Caribbean Goat Curry ($28), to the fluffy and addictive Ricotta Hotcakes ($23). Don't leave without ordering the coffee, made with Australia's Industry beans, like the Bidi Bado "Abracadabra" ($7) — a full-bodied Utu-style mocha served with a rim of peanut butter, almonds and pink peppercorns.
