Old Chang Kee

OPENED 16 DAYS AGO

Legendary street food institution Old Chang Kee has landed in Covent Garden.

Singapore hotspot Old Chang Kee makes its European debut, bringing the famous curry puff to London.

The Spot:

What started as a small stall in 1956, is now a hot destination in Singapore and beyond – Old Chang Kee currently counts 90 outposts in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and now finally – a city that can’t get enough of curry – London. Paying homage to the restaurant’s origin, Old Chang Kee aims to transport you straight to Singapore with Peranakan-style decorations and curios.

The Food:

Attracting customers from across the globe (including presidents!), Old Chang Kee is best known for its curry puff: a crispy, buttery pastry parcel filled with meat, potatoes and aromatic curry spices. Sound familiar? It’s a bit like a Cornish pastry, yet with a secret blend of herbs and spices that give it a distinct flavour. Flavours include curry potato, chicken and mushroom, Singapore chilli crab and black pepper tuna. Besides the curry puff, Old Chang Kee also serves traditional street food dishes such as chicken curry, nasi lemak and laksa.

The Drinks:

They’ll serve a selection of Singaporean soft drinks here – or why not visit nearby Evelyn’s Table for drinks afterwards?

In a Nutshell:

While this is the first permanent location for Old Chang Kee, the snack made its first appearance in London as a pop-up in Kentish Town. Heads up – that time, the curry puff sold out within four hours, so it’s time to stop reading and start running.
