My family’s go to for affordable and good zichar. Can’t say enough good things about this place other than WE LOVE IT SO MUCH!

My family’s go to zichar place. A small, unassuming coffee shop that serves up superb zichar at affordable prices! Favorites include pork chop, fish head steamboat, prawn rolls, spinach with 3 eggs.

Chicken curry was superb! Generous portion and chicken was super tender. Mee Pok Carbonara has a unique fusion taste- very interesting but would personally much prefer the chicken curry.

i like how this vegetables dish tastes so sweet and crunchy, brilliant dish!

Hurry! Chicken Curry ($12.90), it instantly showcases how a heritage dish has been given a modern touch to it. The authenticity is still there with the flavours from the thick homemade Nyonya style curry gravy that you will immediately take a spoonful of it to taste or to drench it in your rice. Besides the whole chicken leg that comes with it, the X-factor, in my opinion, are the potato chunks which I suspect has been cooked in the curry gravy for hours as the potatoes have turned softer with the flavours seeped into it. Here comes the modernity of this dish as you would expect rice or bread to be served with the curry, but instead, a charcoal you tiao comes into play for you to dip and soak up all those goodness as you take a bite at the crispy dough fritter.

Thanks to the recommendations by @ieatishootipost, who went there to sample a couple of their dishes, it got me intrigued by this modernized Peranakan cuisine served there. By the end of the meal, the food left me with a great impression and a happy, satisfied customer. Pictured is the Slow Braised Pork Belly ($15.90) or tau you bak which simply means pork that is braised in a soy sauce mixture. The rendition here uses tender pork belly chunks that’s slow cooked in a five-spiced soy sauce reduction. Perfect to go with a bowl of rice as you drench the grains in that thick sauce while pairing it with the pork.

Breakfast all day, everyday. A breakfast bomb piled up high with generous amount of scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and guacamole on a thick toast. The pea sprouts and roasted nuts "garnishes" gave the dish added texture and freshness; and the drizzle of their signature mayo sauce elevated the flavours with a slight zesty tang. Incredibly tasty, satisfying and full-filling hearty plate of goodness. 😍

I’ve tried the Black Sesame Soy Latte before and I’m glad to say that the standard is consistently good at Craftsmen. The Black Sesame fragrance is strong, and the taste is prominent. It’s mixed nicely with the milk, resulting in an amazingly creamy and smooth beverage. Great for a non-caffeinated drink.

The butterscotch latte is just one of the many creative drinks available at Craftsmen. It indeed tastes of butterscotch, with a pleasant sweetness to balance the slight bitterness of the coffee. Craftsmen has achieved just the right level of sweetness in this beverage, resulting in a pleasant drink to go with your meal, or a nice beverage to have with your friends or family over a catch-up session.

I’ve loved all the drinks I’ve had at Craftsmen Coffee so far and will definitely be back for more and to try the food!

I was surprised by this when it arrived as it looked more like a soft serve than coconut ice when it arrived. The texture leaned more towards soft serve rather than ice blend too as the ice was really fine, creamy and smooth. I found it a bit weird that there were some ice cubes inside the ice blend though. I’m not sure if that was intentional or if those didn’t get blended properly.

The drink is topped with some coconut flakes, and if you eat the coconut ice on its own it’s extremely coconutty and quite sweet. I recommend mixing some of the ice into the espresso at the bottom to achieve the middle ground of bitter espresso with sweet coconut ice. This blending of flavours was lovely, with none outshining the other. Super refreshing cold beverage with a caffeine kick. I can see myself ordering a main with this beverage whenever I’m at Craftsmen if it weren’t for the astounding number of choices available. I definitely have to visit more to try the other items on the menu.

Still one of the best zi char in Singapore. Don't miss their deep fried squid and roast chicken too.

Good combination of fragrant oiled rice, chicken with soy based sauce, and drenched with the spicy vinegar chilli. Be prepared to queue but it moves fast.
