If a restaurant has the word ‘Jiak’ (that’s Hokkien for “to eat”) in it, you can be assured that the food they serve will not disappoint. In fact, Jiak Modern Tzechar’s philosophy is to bring people together around a table and enjoy a delicious tze char meal.
Established first in 2016 in the Hillview area, Jiak Modern Tzechar’s aim is to introduce traditional tze char (a Hokkien term used to describe Chinese kopitiam food stalls that provide a wide array of affordable Halal dishes reminiscent to home-cooked meals) to the Muslim population in Singapore.
When you step into their second outlet at The Esplanade, you’ll be greeted by the friendly staff over the gentle sounds of bossa nova. And, as you settle down, enjoy the view of the Singapore River and The Esplanade’s Outdoor Theatre, where free performances are held every now and then. Good food with good views? Not a bad deal, really.
If you’re here to watch a concert, the restaurant has thoughtfully curated pre-show set menus to ensure that you’ll get to your performance on time and with a belly full of good food as well!
