As the saying goes, “a good cup of chai is like a hug in a mug”.
Take it from the folks behind Good Chai People, Singapore’s first chai speciality cafe, who are all ready to serve up handmade artisanal sticky chai in none other than Katong, our favourite cafe-hopping haunt.
Chai is a heavenly brew that dates back thousands of years, having been steeped in tales of royalty due to its antioxidant properties. Good Chai People describes it as a “beverage that brings us continuous comfort amidst the daily hustle”, and I wholeheartedly agree.
Take in the flavours and aromas of chai as you bask in the cafe’s homely Scandinavian-inspired interior decked out with rattan furniture and lush botanicals.
Feast your eyes on the display of freshly-baked desserts and pastries, including the likes of Hojicha Oreo Croissant (S$6.50), Churros Croissant (S$6.50), and Truffle Creme Foccacia (S$8). There are plenty of teatime treats, from the Mini Lemon Citrus Loaf (S$6) to the Speculoos Apple Tart (S$7), for your perusual.
With 11 unique types of freshly-brewed chai to choose from, you’re likely to start feeling spoilt for choice. Go for the classic Sticky Chai Latte (from S$7), the Japanese-inspired Hoji-Chai Latte (from S$7), or even the only cold option on the menu, the Triple Citrus Spiced Chai (from S$8).
Cosy autumnal flavours are in abundance at this time of year, so you can snuggle up to cups of Salted Maple Chai (from S$6.50) and Apple Cinnamon Chai (from S$7.50).
All chai beverages are also vegan-friendly, prepared with only plant-based milk and coconut sugar.
Pair your chai with Aussie-style mains and salads like the breakfast-inspired Eggs & Toast (from S$12), Braised Beef Cheek Polenta (S$20), and the Antipasti Salad (S$16), an exquisite combination of burratina, arugula, proscuitto di parma, truffle salami, and tomatoes.
Indulge in a unique array of sides like GCP Brussels Sprouts (S$14), Fried Baby Corn (S$12) with sriracha mayo, and Honey Garlic Baked Brie (S$18). You can even order an exquisite Cheese Board (S$55 for 2–3pax) with cheeses, cold cuts, artisanal crackers, fruits, nuts, crudites, and Nyonya kaya dip to nibble on.
If you’re not up for chai (but why?), take your pick from the assortment of coffee, teas, Australian sodas, beers, and wine.
The cafe also features a pretty retail area by homegrown candle brand Nine Wicker Ave. featuring products from talented local crafters and makers, including the likes of homeware, jewelry, soaps, crystals, and many more.
Come by for a chit-chat over comfort food and a cup of two of chai. See you there!
