Loos Hainanese Curry Rice($4.50):
#JonApproves
8/10
Pork cutlet, 1 veg, Pork Belly and Steam Egg
Pork Belly is fatty and firm. Curry is light and flavorful, Abit of kick.. Smell like it has satay sauce. Pork cutlet is tasty and has Abit of chew. Veg is soft. Steam egg is soft yet firm. Cai Fan but lvl up. Setting standard for Curry Rice. Not the best tho..

Oh, this glorious plate of curry rice has my heart โค๏ธ Cheap, good and so insanely sinful.

This was at ๐‹๐จ๐จโ€™๐ฌ ๐‡๐š๐ข๐ง๐š๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ž ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐‘๐ข๐œ๐ž, and I got the Pork Chop, Egg and Chap Chye. And best of all, this plate cost less than $5! I just love simple meals like this, donโ€™t you?

The queue was very long, but move quite fast, the food still very good.
Ordered the pork chop, squid, meatballs and vegetables.
The curry was tasty and not goey, the pork chop tender but not as crispy as Beo crescent one, the squid tender and the meatball, not enough 2 meatballs for 3 of us. Its a must item for me to order if I go Loo's.
๐Ÿ’ฐ$21.5 (with 3 rice).

Hopping on another bandwagon today at Looโ€™s Hainanese Curry Rice, located around Tiong Bahru.

Long queue โœ…, highly efficient food preparation and service โœ…, mouthwatering Curry Rice โœ…

We opted for more proteins this time: Sweet and Sour Pork Cutlet, Braised Pork Belly, Assam Prawns and Sotong.
Together with some Chap Chye served alongside.

Their Scrambled Eggs with Beansprouts(in purple plate) are amazing. That subtle sweetness from the eggs just go SO WELL together with the savoury Nonya curry. Itโ€™s surely my must-order dish from here!

I do believe the Braised Pork Belly and the Sotong here are slightly tastier than the Beo Crescent ones. The curry isnโ€™t overly spicy but fragrant and delectable as well.

I especially adore the Pork Cutlet because of its crunchy consistency only achieved by coating it with crushed Khong Guan biscuits before frying. Especially nostalgic bringing back memories of my grandmas dishing up their own pork chop recipes involving such traditional methods!

My family has been patronising Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice at 229 Jalan Besar ever since I was a kid and that has been my go-to curry rice fix for as long as I can remember. Recently, Looโ€™s Hainanese Curry Rice has been popping up all over my social media feed and I decided to check it out after reading the raving reviews online:)

We ordered pork chop, braised pork belly, curry prawns, curry sotong, chap chye (braised cabbage) and rice for 3 pax and it amounted to $38. The first thing that struck me is that the curry is definitely less gooey and spicier than the one at Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice. Looโ€™s curry is aromatic and it definitely packs a punch for people who are looking for a spicy kick, but personally, I prefer the curry at Scissor-Cut as there is a slight sweet undertone that balances the strong flavours of the curry.

The curry prawns are very pricey at $3 per piece, but it is my favourite dish of the day. The prawns are really big and succulent, and they go well with the savoury and spicy curry. The curry sotong is not overcooked and I like that it is soft and tender.

The pork chops are coated in biscuit crust, deep fried and drizzled in a tomato-based sauce. To be honest, I felt that the pork chops are not exceptionally crispy or tender, and are rather normal tasting. Having said that, the tomato sauce is not bad as it has just the right amount of sweetness and it does not overpower the pork chops.

The braised pork belly is not the melt-in-your-mouth kind of pork belly, but I actually enjoy the fact that it has a good bite without being tough. It also has a good meat to fat ratio and is not too oily. The chap chye (braised cabbage) is very soft and tender and goes well with the curry rice, but it pales in comparison with the one from Scissor-Cut which really brings out sweetness of the cabbage.

Overall, I think the appeal of Looโ€™s Hainanese Curry Rice lies in its aromatic and spicy curry as well as its seafood dishes, which are usually not the focus of traditional curry rice but in this case are surprisingly well executed. Having said that, my soft spot for Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice remains as the flavours are more to my liking:)

I love my hawker food and appreciate that you cannot expect dining at hawker centres or kopitiams to be squeaky clean or to match service standards in a restaurant.

However, this is going to be a rant at Loo's, a popular Hainanese curry rice stall in the Tiong Bahru area.

At the peak of the Covid-19 outbreak, you would expect most stallholders to be a little more vigilant about hygiene. Not at Loo's whose "clean" utensils are placed wet in a basket for you to pick up. Not only that, the clean job was obviously not very thorough as you can find curry and soap stains on the utensils. Yes, you can clean it off using a tissue but that's not really the point.

What's more galling is that they were not very careful in their food preparation process. We found a steel ribbon sort of object in their sweet and sour pork (see circled in white). I was treated in a curt manner and they replaced the dish with a significantly smaller portion.

Yes, the food is tasty but I am going to take my business elsewhere.
