Love the chicken curry but not available everyday though. Coffee a bit expensive
Best Oxtail stew and love the crackling pork knuckle. Crispy skin throughout with moist tender meat. Slow cooked and oven baked to perfection.
A good place for dinning with friends to catch up. Food is fantastic, value for money
Best service ever!!! Very warm services, nice food and price friendly
Jacob's Cafe is a great place for any kind of gathering. Its one of the those places that hasnt gone away in time. I remember my father taking me and my cousins to Jacob's back in the 90s. They are still here and they serve honest no fuss good old home style cooked food. Now that I live in the east I visit Jacob's quite regularly. I enjoy the Hainanese mutton stew, baked drumlets and their daily specials are a treat too.
It was nice stepping into Jacob's Cafe, which has a cosy, relaxing ambience. The crew members were on the whole attentive. As for the food, for which Jacob's Cafe is well-known, I rate it excellent!
The restaurant is so busy that they do not even have time to refill the empty cup. Maybe they should just give a jug to every table so that customers can fill the water by themselves. Since they don't charge service fee and GST, customer can only treat that as added bonus. Other than that. Can't fault their food and price. Favourite food is their braised pork knuckle which is limited. Worth every penny. Most staff are friendly.
Good & efficient service along with home-style comfort food. Satsfying Hainanese mutton soup was good and positively 'shiok' with the chili paste. Tasty rich cabonara pasta with generous chunks of bacon, ham & mushrooms. As with homestyle cooking, there were shortcomings in minor areas - hardened, inedible sun-dried tomatoes in my son's roast beef sandwich and side of dried dehydrated corn cob in hubby's roast beef main, both from the daily special menu. Both forgivable since the beef itself was good. Will be back and recommendation - try to stick to items from standard main menu.
Jacob's Cafe is a no-frills place but they do a great homestyle cooking. If you are looking for a quiet place to chill out, don't miss it.
We ordered a smoked chicken pizza and a German pork knuckles.. super thumb up for the knuckles.. we wanted to try other cny dishes though as the waiter had recommended.. only disappointment is that after we ordered, when the waiter chk with the kitchen, they told us that the dishes are sold out.. would be nice if we can try the specialities..
