Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice, the rice with a disguise.

I was out on a quest to travel on foot from Farrer Park station to locate the famous Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant armed with an iPhone GPS and a foodie buddy. Just as we were about to turn into Jalan Besar road, we walked right into a signboard that got my friend hysterical. For years she have been searching high and low and we stumble into the place just like that. As the saying goes, miracles happen when its the least expected.

Do not be put off my the sight of the long queue, they move as fast as the customers add on.

Alright, let’s go straight to the food. Besides the rice and the curry, you have a variety of side dishes, such as chicken wing, fried egg and ngoh hiang to choose from. But one of the most popular add-ons would be the fried chicken cutlet. So after the side dishes have been furiously cut into pieces by a snappy scissors, 3 different sauces are poured over the plate. So what do you get at the end? A plate of aw-curry-some. The 3 different sauces work so well together to give a slightly curry-spicy, milky and sweet taste to complement the steaming hot rice and side dishes. My friend and I finished the plate in around 5 minutes. We were either super hungry or it was that good. Wait, make that both.

Yepp, that’s the man snapping away with his “japanese hand” scissors. You can hear the blades clanging away as you eat.
