新加坡繫香敍聚堂 XiXiang Kaya Kopitiam Singapore is a modern kopitiam or coffeeshop. It offers traditional local coffee as well as toasts and soft boiled eggs – just like the traditional coffeeshop, but has a clean pleasant and air-conditioned setting. Its menu also has a fair range of affordable one dish meals.
Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam is a traditional coffeeshop style cafe established in Malaysia, with outlets in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Alor Star. The first Singapore outlet is in Robinson Centre and a new Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam just opened in Paya Lebar Quarter.
Located in Basement 2 of PLQ Mall, the new XXixiang Kaya Kopitiam outlet has a compact dining space that lools neat and tidy. It is brightly lit and has an airy feel even though the tables are squeezed quite close together.

Lunch @ Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam
We had lunch recently at Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam in PLQ Mall. It is a self service restaurant. Order and payment are made at the counter. You collect the food when prompted by the buzzer and you help yourself to the utensils and condiments.
We ordered the BBQ Chicken Rice ($8.90), the Yogurt Curry Chicken with Tomato Rice ($8.90) and the Tumeric Curry Chicken with Blue Rice ($8.90). An iced Kopi C was $2.90 and a hot Kopi-O was $2.
The rice dishes were nicely presented. Pyramid shaped rice was served with a fried egg and some vegetables or archar. The BBQ Chicken Rice was good. The chicken rice was fragrant and had a robust taste of old school chicken stock. The chicken was tender and the BBQ sauce was quite tasty.
The Tomato Rice looked nice but its taste was not very distinctive. The Yogurt Curry Chicken was enjoyable. The thick curry was mildly spicy and had many layers of flavours.
The Blue Rice was photogenic but not very special otherwise. It tasted just like plain white rice. The Tumeric Curry was rich and vibrant with earthy flavours. The succulent chicken absorbed the flavours well.
Coffee & Cake
We also had a piece of butter cake ($4.90). It was moist and dense and was a good version of the simple old school cake. The coffee at Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam was decent; sort of like the coffee you would get in a traditional coffeeshop.
Overall, we thought their curries were quite good and we liked the chicken rice. The coffee was decent. Xixiang Kaya Kopitiam is a casual pleasant place for affordable one dish meals, breakfast or snacks, whether you are alone or in a group.
