Different Tastes Café & Restaurant

A humble cafe that started in 1989 inside a local bowling center, Jackie’s Bowl along East Coast Road; after 27 years in managing the "Zhi Char" restaurant line, it has since become a full fledged restaurant spanning over 3 outlets in various locations in Singapore.

The café was the first in Singapore that was serving local cooked food inside a bowling center. On top of the usual curry puffs, chicken pies, sandwiches, and hot dogs that was on the menu then at Different Taste Café, they were also selling Curry Fish Head and other “Zhi Char" dishes like Foo Yong Omelet, Chicken Prawn Paste, Honey Pork Spare Ribs and Sweet & Sour Sliced Fish just to name a few.

As a Peranakan, there is always much emphasis on authentic way of cooking as well as sourcing for the freshest ingredients and complex ways of using to create that exquisite taste and provide simple food with a unique taste. At Different Taste, we live to keep things simple, promising always to provide our customers with restaurant quality food at “Zhi Char" prices.
