SINGAPORE | Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice is housed in a small shop-house in Jalan Basar that serves up an assortment of delicious Hainanese dishes like curry rice, fried chicken chop, ngo hiong and yong tau foo. An assortment of things are displayed next to the small kitchen, but turnover is quick so you can be assured that everything’s fresh. You simply walk up and make your order, and the elements are piled onto a plate for you then slathered with the famous curry.
The curry here is said to contain over 20 ingredients, and it’s a flavoursome, thick, gooey mess of deliciousness that’s sweet, sour and tangy all at once. Meat is cut into manageable portions with scissors, hence the “scissors cut” part of the name. We recommend the crispy pork chop or, if they don’t have it, crispy chicken chop as essential, along with some braised pork, egg and sprouts.
The food is cheap (you shouldn’t need to pay more than around SGD$7 to be well fed), delicious, and the long opening hours means you can enjoy a feed here in the early hours of the night – the perfect end or start to a night out on the town.
