Located in Jalan Besar, Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice specialises in Hainanese curry mixed rice.
Beach Road Scissor Cut Rice has been around for as long as most people can remember, and probably needs no introduction as one of Singapore's 'heritage food'!
The setup is very basic: a small stall and a till counter inside a coffeeshop. You choose from an assortment of mostly fried items, or braised pork, veg and curry chicken - all to be snippity-snipped into bite sized portions and piled atop your plate of steamed rice, and then lathered in thick goop and braised cabbage.
Not be the healthiest of meals, but definitely one of the cheapest and scrummiest you can find today! The curry and braised sauce is thick (from starch I think) and flavourful, and melds the rice together in a yummy mush. We ordered a variety of items to try between both of us - and I must say they were all good! Then again I suppose, everything tastes like spillage of goop.
I can see how this can't be everyone's cup of tea though. The mess of sauce overwhelming a plate of rice can't be very visually appealing nor appetizing. Also this is quite heavy on the sauce action, so for the rice purists who like their fluffy white grains pristine and untainted, this isn't quite the place to go.
This place in my opinion, serves the best scissor curry rice in Singapore. Queue is always long during dinner time and thankfully, they decided to expand to the neighbouring unit.
Love their currey chicken and pork chops. Sauces are thick and tasty. Always my favourite for good tasty scissor cut food. Simply the best!
If you are in search of a good supper place that is affordable, look no further. This is definitely the place to fill up your tummy with a plate of rice and your selection of ingridients in a dollop of curry and braised black sauce. Their Chap Chye (Soft Cabbage) is so so good~
