A messy plate of rice coated generously with their special curry sauce. Their curry sauce is a mixture of four different sauces - chilli sauce, chilli oil, braised gravy, and curry. The curry gravy is smooth, thick and sticky with a mild spice level.

I got myself chap chye, tau pok, bean sprouts and fish cake. The chap chye was soft and well seasoned while the tau pok is soaked with braised sauce and coated with the curry sauce that makes it so good. The beansprouts together with cubes of tau kwa added more crunch and texture to my plate. The fish cake tasted very normal, not the bouncy type.

Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice has always been my go-to comfort food as this is one of my family’s favourite dinner/supper spots ever since I was a kid.

We ordered braised pork belly, curry chicken wings, cabbage and ngoh hiang for 3 pax and it costs $21.40, which is pretty reasonable given the generous portion. One thing to note is that the curry is barely spicy, so if you are looking for a fiery kick, this probably will not work for you. Having said that, the combination of thick curry and braised sauce is delicious, with a slight sweet undertone that complements the flavours. It is a sloppy mess when ladled over a plate of rice, but this is one tasty mess.

The braised pork belly is not the kind that melts in your mouth, but there is a good meat-to-fat ratio and the savoury dark sauce complements the curry. The chicken wings are stewed in a rich and aromatic curry sauce till they are fall-off-the-bone tender. The cabbage is very soft and sweet - this is actually one of my favourite dishes and we always order double portion of this. As for the ngoh hiang, it is not crispy at all but that does not bother me as the pork filling is well-seasoned and it goes well with the curry.

It’s kind of weird because the different components are rather ordinary on their own but it tastes really good when you throw everything together and drench it in that thick curry and braised sauce. Simple pleasures in life👍🏻

Curry lacks in flavour and spice. Really expected more because this place is so hyped up by everyone. Ingredients were also cold, with super small meat portions given. Rice was clumpy too. This was also quite expensive for curry rice...

• value for money ($4.80)
• generous portion

it does seem like their standards have slightly dropped but it is still good!!! love it on a hot or rainy day, wash everything down with a cup of coke yums 😋

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.
