Western

Determined to recapture the flavours and feel of Changi Village in the 1950s and 1960s, this quaint neighbourhood cafe has a menu of local and Western favourites. There's everything from German sausages to shepherd's pie to oxtail stew; wash it all down with a cold beer or glass of wine.

Closed on Sun and PH, Mon to Sat: 09.00am - 11.30pm

Pork Knuckle to die for!

The Pork Knuckle here really deserves more recognition! Its done to crispy perfection, while remaining juicy inside, without the usual meaty aftertaste that pork knuckles have. They also have a huge range of beers to choose from, we took one recommended by the boss. It was sweet and mellow and was a great accompaniment to the knuckle we devoured!

The best pork knuckles in town. Or anywhere.

For photos and the full review, head over here.

Even after my visit to Germany I maintain that Jacob's makes the best German pork knuckle ever (note that they offer the asian braised pork knuckle too). Perfect crackling that stayed crispy throughout the meal, flavourful succulent meat, and an absolutely delish sauerkraut.

Jacob's also dishes up a mean oxtail stew, with huge chunks of root vegetables and fall-off-the-bone tender meat. I love how much attention they pay to the small details like the accompanying baguettes - the baguettes were served hot, crisp, and pillowy on the inside. Regardless of how busy they are they've never failed to serve great bread with their stews. Absolutely love this homely cafe.

The rice-stuffed roasted chicken and stew are superb! Situated in a quiet corner of Changi Village, this is one of my fav eateries to enjoy a quiet and nice dinner. Highly recommended!

Stopped by as close to the park connector and discovered this little treasure in Changi village. They provide great food by keeping it simple and using fresh ingredients, the carbonara is just great and dims other more expensive fair from dedicated Italian locations. Staff are attentive and courteous so overall a place that I am looking forward to returning to.

Jacob's cafe/Changi Village is amongst the very few eateries in Singapore I spent with my colleagues and friends. It serves fresh and quality meals at affordable prices with no gst/service charge 

We ate Oxtail stew, german pork knuckle, steak & kidney pie with prawns and mango salad. It has good selection of beer.  
Definitely, I will return with my family to repeat some of the dishes and other special dishes like hainanese braised pork knuckle, roast chicken stuff with rice and pumpkin soup.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
