Grains of rice, golden fries – staples in many a person’s diet. If you’re in Singapore and looking for a carbohydrate fix of this kind, then Changi Road’s Rice & Fries is the spot for you to get your hit. Then again, mash, fries, and buttery rice are really only sideshows to the main events here. Rice & Fries’ menu, simple as it is, presents a smorgasbord of western and international-style dishes geared towards homely, comfort food.
Singapore’s Rice & Fries was born of the growling belly of former Ritz Carlton, Crowne Plaza, and Fullerton hotel chef Ken Chia. Wanting to take his passion for hearty, internationally-inspired food to the masses, and remain closer to his family in his beloved Changi neighbourhood, Ken decided to take things down a notch and open up a diner where everyone can enjoy the food that he and his kids like to chow down on. Rice & Fries’ Changi Road diner stays close to the kampung philosophy – good food, friendly service, in a down-home environment.
Like we mentioned before, Rice & Fries is too modest a title. This kampung-style eatery (family-friendly and no GST charges!) is, after all, run by a stellar chef with major hotel kitchen experience under his apron. Weird and wonderful international and western dishes dot the menu: forest mushroom cappuccino soup (with a side of ratatouille?), racks of ribs with BBQ sauce (and, yes, potato wedges), and classic rosemary roast chicken (that’s chic Ken, a sly nod to Rice & Fries’ owner and chef, and best served with a side of butter rice or mash). There’s something for all the family at this Changi Road restaurant, but many in Singapore are just happy to order up a basket of Rice & Fries’ B.F.F. – four types of fries – shoestring, criss-cross, wedges, and truffle fries with special four-season sauces. You and Rice & Fries: best friends forever.
We had the spam bot, crab and lobster risotto and crab meat marinara - all of which were pretty good. Service was very good too.
Nice rice and fries bowl. Value for money. Nice and friend staff present. A place worth checking out. Tried the spam fries and they were good!
good location, easy to spot, good service, nice food. the meals are filling and affordable. convenient place for families living in the east for a meal
The food came quickly and service was excellent ! Personally for finger food, I liked the spam bots and Portebello fries. Location-wise, it couldn't be more well placed as well. The restaurant was not a 5 minute walk from Kembangan MRT. In short, great location, great food and great service.
Decided to try this cafe with my partner when I saw it on Quandoo. It has a rather casual style and we were greeted with the smell of truffle (fries) upon entering! We tried the salted egg yolk soft shell crab pasta, which was good though rather "gelat" if you eat one by your own. The lobster and crab "rice" was pretty yummy as well though it doesn't beat the salted egg yolk pasta in terms of uniqueness! We then had a waffle for dessert which was enjoyable as crispy, they were generous with the ice cream and overall the meal was reasonably priced as well. Will recommend trying out this cafe for interesting eats! :)
Went there for dinner and the atmosphere was wonderful! The service of the food was efficient and the taste of the food is not bad! will vist again for the chili crab mantou and the lava cake! :)
High quality food with reasonable price! Service was excellent as well. Best part is that you can enjoy good food with good range of drinks. Thumbs up!
Had a rather heavy breakfast before heading down to rice and fries. Hence only ordered the truffle fries and a drink. Excellent service and food. Will definitely come back again fot more!
Nice place...cosy ambience, the cheese fries quite nice oh...the pork chop i find ok, maybe not hungry so cannot really appreciate it. Retreat from the buzz of town.
Friendly service staff in a casual cafe. Reasonably priced menu (bonus: no service charge & GST) and delectable dishes. Recommended for after work gatherings and casual dates.
