Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice now open at VivoCity

One of Singapore’s favourite Hainanese curry rice spots is Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice, an institution that’s been around for more than 90 years. Last year, they became slightly more accessible when they opened a stall in ION Orchard’s Hawker Street; they’ve just launched their very first independent mall outlet at VivoCity!

If you’ve never made the trip to Beach Road, here’s the lowdown on this unpretentious shop’s winning points. First of all, they’re open from 11am to 3am every day of the week, making them a hot favourite with supper crowds. This VivoCity eatery is only open till 10pm every day, however, so you might still need to head to the OG Beach Road outlet for late-night cravings.

Then, there’s the food: you start with a plate of plain rice, then go about picking your choice of ingredients. One of the most distinctive sounds you’ll hear upon entering the shop is the metallic clash of snapping scissors as they snip up your food, which is where they get their name from.

The quintessential picks include lor bak, breaded pork or chicken cutlets, deep-fried sunny side-ups, and chap chye. There are also various other dishes you could pick, including curry chicken wings, stir-fried vegetables, fishcake, and the like. These are all freshly cooked on the premises at their VivoCity outlet!

The finishing touch on every plate is their thick, viscous curry, plus the equally sticky-looking lor bak braising gravy. It’s dashed onto each plate with careless abandon, epitomising the phrase ‘ugly delicious’.

Unlike at the OG Beach Road outlet, there are preset plates that you can order here, with different permutations of their popular rice toppings. The most basic plate, Set A, is priced at an affordable $5.80, and comes with your choice of pork chop or chicken cutlet, cabbage, egg, and rice. Otherwise, there’s the Traditional Set ($8.50), which has got both pork chop and braised pork belly, cabbage, egg, and rice. You’re able to top-up for extra ingredients; do note that it’s cheaper to add on to the existing sets, than to order a la carte and customise your plate of curry png.
