Located in Jalan Besar, Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice specialises in Hainanese curry mixed rice.
I bet that if you brought an ang moh (Caucasian) friend to try this Hainanese curry rice, he would think you were pulling a fast one on him.
It's a plate of rice topped with an unthinkable mixture of gooey chicken curry, braised pork and slimy soft cabbage gravy. If you have never eaten this before, you'd probably be wondering how something that looks like pig's swill could even taste good. I myself cannot imagine how you can mix curry with lor (braising sauce), but the concoction sure tasted good! And that was not all, the texture of the gravy was like that of tau suan—full of corn starch—so it felt like I was slurping glue.
The stall used a pair of scissors to cut up all the ingredients for you and pile it all on top. The meat was in little pieces and the rice was doused with lots of gravy. Everything was mushy and mixed together. Just use your spoon, scoop it up and put it in your mouth. No other effort needed! This would be one of the most effortlessly tasty but superbly tasty dishes you can find.
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~
