The last time I am here was more than 10 years ago. Came back here again but still it did not impress me. The gravy is too thick and slimy texture. Nothing special about their pork chop. I will still stick to Beo Crescent Curry Rice and Loo's Hainanese Curry Rice 😅

Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice 剪刀剪咖喱饭 - A Messy Gooey Mess that lost its charm (💵 S$5.40) .
The sound of scissors cutting could be heard from far away, a tad intimidating and anxious as you choose your ingredients through a glass window while a hoarding a line of customers behind impatiently waiting for you to be done. The end result was a messy gooey goodness of curry rice.
At least that’s what it used to be. Now it’s just a pile of messy gooey mess. The curry is a little too gooey, nice on the bed but not on the plate. If the curry had more punch to it in terms of spiciness and fragrance, it would’ve been like the good old days. At least the pork chop and several fried items are still decent, if they can fuck that up too then I’ve got more shit to say. Decent, but not the best anymore.

Everybody’s favourite in this area! Recommend the cabbage, taupok and chicken cutlet for sure 😋 find it a bit too gooey for my liking and would recommend EAT for similar renditions.

So I’m not into greasy stuffs but I decided to give the famed curry rice a try and didn’t regret it! It was delicious, it looks thick but doesn’t taste as thick as expected. Some may say it’s quite thin but it’s still nicelt flavorful so I think it’s not much of a problem. Something that can be recommended to tourists!

It’s even better when it involves lots of curry, braised sauce and sambal. Famed for their namesake, they will literally use a pair of scissors to cut whatever ingredients you choose from the window of food. The rice is then drenched with three kinds of gravy; two types of thick viscous curry and a braised gravy. My usual picks that I get to go with my rice include the chicken cutlet, braised cabbage and ngor hiang which is a pork filling with water chestnuts that’s rolled into a beancurd skin and deep fried.

Shared this plate bc we were unhungry after our gym session. I don’t normally go for curry rice, but this was not bad. We got cabbage, sunny side egg, lu rou & cutlet, which was drenched in the brown sauce + curry. Liked the soft cabbage and lu rou more, egg was normal while I would have preferred the cutlet to be a bit more crisp. The colour of the cutlet was a bit pale, idk if they under-fried this batch or it’s supposed to be like that? Liked the sauce combo on rice, would revisit! But I feel like it’s damn sinful and I won’t get a craving for this so maybe next year!
