The new cafe in Katong has the look and feel of a modern trendy cafe. The magazines, floral arrangements and big green plants are familiar elements in popular cafe interior decorations in Singapore.

Lunch of Good Chai People

We visited the new chai cafe for lunch. We selected the Cajun Meatball Polenta ($18) and Creamy Chicken Stew ($18), flat white coffee ($5.50) and sticky chai latte ($7).

Good Chai People Cajun Meatball Polenta

The Cajun Meatball Polenta was an interesting dish we would not usually see on a cafe’s menu. The polenta, an Italian dish made of ground corn, was soft and creamy. It was topped with meatball and sliced sausages in thick tomato sauce. Everything combined well. It was a very enjoyable dish.

Good Chai People Creamy Chicken Stew

Creamy Chicken Stew was served with 2 slices of lightly toasted bread. It was a comforting dish with the chicken well cooked through so that the meat was smooth and tender. The mushroom, corn and carrots bits added a combination of textures.

Good Chai People cafe coffee

The coffee in the chai cafe was not bad. The Sticky Chai Latte, brewed with oat milk and coconut sugar and topped with cinnamon powder, was interesting. We are not chai connoisseurs, but is was a nice cup of aromatic refreshing tea.

Cafe Hub in Katong

Good Chai People is located at the part of East Coast Road that is becoming a cafe hub. GCP’s neighbours will include The Neptune and Plain Vanilla, and Brawn and Brains is just across the road. Good Chai People does bring something different and should be welcomed by those who may have a preference for chai. It is a nice cosy spot for breakfast or brunch or just some pastries and beverages.
