Most Singaporeans will know Old Chang Kee for its fried goods, like the Curry'O and Sotong Head OnStik.

Many won't associate it with steamed offerings like say, steamed buns or siew mai (Chinese dumpling)—until perhaps.

Only outlet with steamed snacks

Apart from kiosks all over Singapore, Old Chang Kee also has a chain of cafe concepts called Coffee House that offers all the works, including mains, snacks and drinks.

The Coffee House outlet at Tanjong Pagar, which opened in June 2021, is the third and latest addition.

Unlike the other stores, the Tanjong Pagar outlet is the first and only outlet to have steamed skewers, with dim sum as part of its offerings.

Steamed items from S$1.10

Here, one can indulge in the curry chicken bao (S$1.60 each, S$3 for two), which is shaped like the popular Curry'O but steamed, instead of deep fried.
