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.

Under rated drinking spot

The bar next door is full or deniers, loud and noisy but Jacob's is a quite place. Easy drinking was what I was here for and I got that. Nice beer selection.

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.

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.

Delicious roasted chicken and stew

Total Review: 1

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!
