queued for about 10 mins at around 11am

chicken cutlet was crispy and juicy, curry was very aromatic and the noodles were springy

service was excellent

I love these noodles. The fried chicken cutlet is freshly fried on the spot because they’re so popular and the queue is very long, so it’s piping hot when you eat it. I think the highlight of this dish is the curry though. I love it! It’s not very spicy, and extremely fragrant because of the coconut milk and other spices. It also clings onto the noodles perfectly. Don’t sleep on their 水饺 (dumplings) either!! Add it onto your meal!!!! It’s completely stuffed with prawns and there’s even water chestnut inside. Delicious!

Mention Hong Lim and chicken curry noodles, and most people would automatically think about Heng Kee and Ah Heng - Hainanese-style white poached chicken over thick beehoon in laksa broth.

Cantonese Delights in the same hawker centre however serves a vastly different type of chicken curry noodles. They serve a thick juicy slab of shattering crisp fried chicken over egg noodles drenched in a rich creamy curry full of spices.

Their chicken cutlet is without a doubt one of the best if not the best in town. You can taste the har cheong gai marinade in the sweet chicken juices and the skin remains crisp even after a while. I usually eat my fried chicken without gravy to avoid having a soggy skin but the lemak curry gravy really goes well with the fried chicken. The noodles are done excellent with only a slight hint of the alkaline taste which I really dislike.

They used to serve a mean laksa yong tau foo as well but seemed to have stopped doing so. Needless to say, the queues are horrendous. But this is well worth the queue and the wait!

This large bowl of glorious goodness greeted me after about 30 mins of queueing during the lunch peak hour. Some of the items, such as the Yong Tau Foo and the Char Siew, were slowly sold out as I inched closer to the front. Fortunately, I still managed to snag this Chicken Cutlet Curry noodles, 大 ($5.50). On the first mouth, I could taste the coconutiness of the curry. The gravy was light and not overly spicy such that I could easily slurp down every last drop of the sauce. The alkaline noodles were abit soggy and could be more springy. The Chicken cutlet was the main star of the dish for me. Freshly fried due to the constant snaking queue, the chicken cutlet was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. There was a slight hint of prawn paste as well. The perfect combination was when I doused the chicken with the curry, letting that crispy skin soak in all the lemak goodness. On top of all that, there was also free flow pork lard I could add for that extra crunch. I will definitely be back again to try the other dishes that were sold out.

Tucked at the deep corner of the second floor of Hong Lim Market & Food Centre was this stall that almost seemed to be famous for their Curry Fried Chicken Cutlet Noodles / Rice (S$4.00). Fortunately, I was able to place my order at around 1-plus in the afternoon, as they would have closed for the day if I arrive after 2.00pm (largely depends on whether they still have anything left to sell).

But coming back to the curry noodles (still puzzled me if curry was a Cantonese thing), I was impressed by how the freshly-fried chicken cutlet complemented so well with their curry gravy. The noodles did not disappoint either, as I was happily slurping them down as well. And I must say that self-service garnishing and fried pork lard just added extra “shiok”-ness to the already awesome meal!

Remarkably long queue, I was in queue for more than half an hour.

No wonder the Chicken Cutlet is so popular. The endless order of chicken cutlet resulted in freshly fried cutlet for every order. The thick piece of chicken cutlet was tender, curry was poured upon order so the outer remains crispy. The thin noodles coats and lifted up the curry very well. Great lunch.
