Reviews of good food at Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice (Jalan Besar)

Located at 229 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208905. A plate of heavenly delicious scissors cut curry rice! Famous old traditional stall that serves pretty reasonable price. It cost $4.40 for this plate with 3 ingredients, sambal Long Beans, Braised Pork Belly and Pork Chop. Final touch with their special sticky curry gravy and braised sauce over the entire plate. We love their generosity, every part of the rice and ingredients is covered and soak with the fragrantly curry gravy! Indeed craving satisfied✅ #hungryunicornsg #beachroadscissorcutcurryrice #beachroadscissorscutcurryrice #scissorscutcurryrice #curryrice

Again I say, don't judge a dish by its appearance. Listed as the top few in the Hot 100 list of central hawkers can only suggest how incredibly good this plate of messy curry rice is!

We went on a Sunday afternoon and so there wasn't much crowd. Let's see, stewed cabbage, luncheon meat, lor bak (braised pork belly) and 2 pieces of ngoh hiong. A whopping portion at merely $5.80.

The braised pork belly had a good fat-to-meat ratio and melts in the mouth. Could really taste the intermingling of the meat and the braising sauce flavour.

What's also worth ordering was the ngoh hiong, which was still crispy even with the curry gravy splashed on top. It stood out from the other ones that I have tried because of the heavily spiced marinate, likely to be from the five spice powder and what I thought could also be cinnamon powder. Not to mention that the meat was also mixed with lots of crunchy water chestnut.

And finally, the curry gravy! It's not too heavy on the coconut milk, not overly spicy but spicy enough to keep tummies warm. That was why even though it was pouring and we were sitting by the road side, I was still stuck to the chair while getting myself addicted to that warm plate of curry rice right in front of me.

Man, how do I start? This plate of megawesome goodness is the only sauce-drenched dish I'd crave -alil too frequently maybe- for, and leaves me wanting more when it's gone too soon..

The Chap Chye is a must, double it up maybe? Had their Ngoh Hiang as well, which was still crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Make sure to say YESSS when they ask you if you'd like all 3 sauces! Missin' the whole point of popping by this place if you don't ;)

For a “shiok” dinner or supper, Scissors Cut Curry is the place to go! With long queues all through the night, sharing a table with others is a common sight here. The queue moves along super quickly and people usually eat as quickly too! 😂

Absolutely love the pork cutlet and curry here! The pork wasn’t dry and the fact that the plate was FLOODED with delicious curry just warmed my heart (as much as it warmed my mouth!) There’s a slight hint of spiciness (very subtle) in the curry and they have a range of other delicious ingredients as well! I recommend the pork belly as well 👍🏻

The iconic Jalan Besar Hainanese curry rice is synonymous with good old comfort food. Forget their pork chop (the one at Beo Crescent is better), go for their ngoh hiang - in a slightly less identifiable form, fish fillet, luncheon meat in gravy and the not to be missed broiled cabbage. Stack it all on the bed of rice and drench it with braised soy gravy (滷汁), curry sauce and chili and right there right now you have in front of you the hearty, filling, satisfying and the most singapore only comfort rice dish.

This stall is being patronized by many Singaporeans especially labourers in the past, for serving a big portion of rice draped with a generous dose of delicious curry! Don't forget to add their mixed vegetables, fried egg, curry chicken and that yummy stewed pork in black sauce! Best part: it is cheap! 🐳 MerRyan is happy! #merryansg #hawkers #asiafoodprn

Tasted this plate of curry rice @ $4.00+! Curry given in a big scoop was thick and fragrant! With a wide selections of ingredients! What i ordered was the pork belly which was flavourful and fat! Super well mixed with their sauces! Also i added on chicken cutlet and egg which makes the whole plate of rice fulfiling and great! They open till late night and its definitely for people whom like to dine in a traditional eating house situated at the road side near jalan besar!

$3.30 for this plate of dark sauce braised pork belly, tau pok and soft cabbages. Still quite a popular and tasty place to visit.

Scissors Curry Rice [$4.50] YUMMY TUMMY! Choose your ingredients! My faves are braised pork belly, cabbage, egg, tau pork, squid. Everything became messy beyond recognition after the copious amount of thick gao curry sauce was poured onto it. Just the way i like it!

4 munchies: This is what I call a beautiful plate of mess. Besides the usual suspects – crispy pork chop, braised cabbage, and fried egg – that I'd never fail to include whenever I order a plate of Hainanese curry rice, the star ingredient at this famed supper spot was the juicy ngoh hiang (five-spice meat roll). Filled generously with well-marinated minced pork and crunchy water chestnut, the crispy beancurd skin was deep-fried to golden brown perfection. Slather all that curry and concoction of braised and char siew sauces and you're set for a local, mouthwatering experience! #Burpproved #BurppleSGLateNight

Possibly among the last to hop on the bandwagon, but now that I have I'm never turning back. Being the first scissor-cut curry rice I've tried I can't say if this is the best out there, only that I reeeally enjoyed it. I'm not the biggest fan of the starchy braised sauce, cause it kinda just coats the rice and stops that yummy curry from really seeping in; flavour-wise though it was 👌🏻 Fried chicken chop was, as pictured, legit with a thin, crisp batter and meaty; braised cabbage was addictive; and seriously that humble dish of bean sprouts is worth a mention.
