A new restaurant has landed at Changi Airport Terminal 3 offering colonial favourites from different parts of Singapore, Penang and Malacca. Colonial Club is located at the departure hall, level 3 of Changi Airport Terminal 3.
Colonial Platter 3.5/5
Good for sharing is the Colonial Platter ($18.90) which comes with kueh pie tee, satay, inche kabin (nyonya fried chicken) and popiah. There is something for everyone. A delectable starter before the mains are served.
Otak Otak 4/5 and Roti Ayam 4/5
Inche Cabin Chicken 3.5/5
If you are not into a full meal, there are also delectable snacks such as Otak Otak ($6.90), Roti Ayam ($8.90) and Inche Cabin Chicken ($13.90). The Otak Otak, wrapped in banana leaf boosts the aroma of the spices mix in the fish paste. The Roti Ayam comes in a parcel of egg washed bread that has been pan fried and stuffed with chicken meat fillings marinated with Asian spices. Not forgetting the Inche Cabin Chicken which has been marinated withover 10 spices and coconut milk, then deep fried to crispy.
Straits Nonya Laksa with Soft Shell Crab 4.2/5
The Straits Nonya Laksa with Soft Shell Crab ($18.90) comes in a spicy rich coconut broth with rice vermicelli, cucumber, egg, fish, tofu, prawns and soft shell crab. The chef even travelled to Malacca to learn from local chefs. Its definitely a delicious bowl of laksa but its rather pricey.
Signature Colonial Club Nasi Lemak 4/5
The Signature Colonial Club Nasi Lemak ($15.90) is staked up into a tower. At the base is a piece of otak otak, followed by the fragrant blue pea rice, cucumber, fried egg and short rib rendang. I really applaud the effort to plate a simple nasi lemak into such a beautiful dish.
Colonial Style Hainanese Chicken Chop 3.8/5
Tender and juicy is the Colonial Style Hainanese Chicken Chop ($15.90). The chicken thigh coated with cracker crust is pan fried and then drenched in a special in-house tomato Worcestershire sauce. I love the addition of cubed fruits for that invigorating bite and fruity finishing.
Colonial Style Oxtail Stew with Toasted Bagutte 4/5
A classic dish on the menu is the Colonial Style Oxtail Stew with Toasted Bagutte ($15.90). Cooked for hours, the oxtail falls off the bone with ease. You can also find potatoes and carrot in the rich gravy. The best way is to enjoy it is to pick up the toasted baguette to mop up the piquant stew.
Kapitan Chicken Curry 4.2/5
Comes in a thick and creamy gravy is the Kapitan Chicken Curry ($13.90). The chicken is chopped into chunky pieces with big pieces of potatoes. It is great to go a bowl of rice or some toasted baguette to soak up that delicious gravy.
Crispy Skin Roast Chicken with Aromatic Hainanese Chicken Rice 4/5
You can find chicken rice almost at every corner of Singapore, so what makes the Crispy Skin Roast Chicken with Aromatic Hainanese Chicken Rice ($18 half/ $36 full) special here? Well I can't say it is special but definitely a notch better than a lot of chicken rice stalls out there. The succulent chicken has a delectable crisp on its skin and this is paired with aromatic rice. Not forgetting the chilli and ginger scallion sauces, which is an essential for the whole packet.
The menu at Colonial Club is quite huge catering for both tourist and local. This is a great place for tourist to get a bite of our local delicacies before leaving Singapore. However I do find the price a bit on the steep side but then its a known fact that food at airports are usually more expensive.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
