Feel The Fury With Singapore’s 13 Best Hainanese Curry Rice


Curry Png is essentially curry-coated rice topped with your daily dose of proteins and vegetables. What’s not to like, really? Don’t say I bojio, because I’m about to unveil a list of curry rice outlets, as well as some of my personal favourites.

Eleven Fingers (Eukee) Scissors Curry Rice

Vying for the title of Best Curry Rice in Singapore is my all time favourite curry rice. Eleven Fingers is an unassuming hawker stall found in a small corner of 3838 Eating Place. Their curry is thick and robust, and a slight fire follows every spoonful of curry. For $10.50, we got curry chicken, pork belly, fried egg and curry vegetables enough to feed two. What stood out was the pork belly – the pork is soft and well marinated. Eukee, unfortunately, doesn’t offer a huge variety of ingredients but I promise you that it’s really delicious.

Hong Seng Curry Rice

Possibly one of the best tasting curry rice, Hong Seng already has three outlets in Singapore. If you’re lucky, you can even get a glimpse of Gen Y hawkerpreneur, Lim Jia Han, hard at work at the Redhill outlet. The two of us ordered the curry chicken, pork belly, radish egg and rice ($12). There are a couple of stand-outs, including the slightly spicy curry. Their curry chicken is a must-order!

Yong Fa Hainanese Curry Rice & Curry Fish Head

For $5.40, I got curry vegetables, pork belly, stir-fried ham with egg as well as stir-fried hairy gourd. The curry is fragrant and carries just the right amount of taste, texture and spice. The vegetables have a great texture too – the stems are crunchy and the leaves are soft. Don’t miss their stir-fried luncheon meat with egg, which adds a homey touch to the meal.

Long Xiang Hougang Hainanese Curry Rice / Economic Bee Hoon

One of my go-to places for curry rice is Long Xiang Hainanese Curry Rice. It can get pretty busy during peak hours. For $4.90, we got a pretty decent portion of rice with curry, pork cutlet, pork belly and curry vegetables. Long Xiang’s curry vegetables is a tad sweeter, which really pairs well with the spice from the curry, and white grains. Although the pork cutlet was slightly underwhelming with its thin texture and mild flavour, Long Xiang makes up for it with their amazing rendition of braised pork belly.

Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice


Loo’s Hainanese is located within the Tiong Bahru estate. The signature Hainanese dishes that you have to order are the pork chop and stewed chap chye. Do also have a go at their asam sotong if you are feeling more adventurous! Long queues are always observed here, so you have to be prepared to brave the queue.

If you manage to conquer the long queue, you’ll be rewarded with a delicious curry rice treat. A word of advice, you might want to come early before the ingredients run out. I would highly recommend the pork chop, which was unique, crispy and tasty! In addition, the rest of the dishes were as delicious! Overall, we had a satisfying and value-for-money lunch here.

Jin Soon Fa Curry Rice

What differentiates Jin Soon Fa Curry Rice from other curry rice outlets is the availability of brown rice. For $4.30, we had a good portion of brown rice slathered with sticky curry, curry chap chye, pork cutlet and braised pork belly. The curry is slightly sweeter and richer, with a slight heat that follows after each bite. Although the braised pork belly and pork outlet were at best ordinary, I did like the curry cabbage which was good in flavour and texture.

Ga Li Xi Shi

Xi Shi offers an array of ingredients to pair with your curry rice. For $4, I asked for a serving of curry vegetables, pork chop and stir-fried egg with tomatoes. The star was the stir-fried egg with tomatoes – the combination of sweet and tangy flavours made it enjoyable even on its own. Come here if you prefer your curry rice to be spicier than usual.

Redhill Curry Rice

Apart from the famous Hong Seng Curry Rice, there are a couple of curry rice stalls in Redhill Food Centre that are worth checking out. According to their signboard, Redhill Curry Rice has evidently received a few public mentions for their curry rice. I had my plates quickly filled with a portion of stir-fried hairy gourd, curry chicken, and white rice ($3). The curry is light in terms of taste and texture, which will suit curry-lovers who prefer mildly-spicy curries. I highly recommend the delicious mao gua.

Beach Road 1-2

Located in the heart of Jalan Besar is the well-known Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice. We got a generous portion of pork belly, fishcake, curry chicken wings and beansprout on a bed of curry rice for $5.50. The thick curry was satisfying, and the thick pork belly won our hearts.

Dragon Village Hainanese Curry Rice

Dragon Village-3

Do visit early as the ingredients usually run out around late afternoon. Fortunately, we were able to snag a plate of rice ($3.70) topped with cut potatoes, chap chye, braised pork belly and egg tofu. The curry was a tad watery and bland for my taste. My favourite dishes were the pork belly and curry chap chye.

The Hainanese Curry Rice from Maxwell Food Centre attracts large crowds during lunch hour. We actually managed to get a decent portion of rice drizzled with curry, egg, pork chop and stewed chap chye for just $3.20! We love the thin and crispy pork chop here.

Sin Chie Toke Huan Hainanese Curry Rice

The first thing that captures your attention should be the myriad of ingredients displayed at the front of the stall. We grabbed a few ingredients to go along with our rice – minced pork patty, chilli sotong, curry chicken, stewed cabbage and pork chop. The minced pork patty, which was nicely marinated, has a springy texture, and won us over instantly. I also enjoyed the perfectly-stewed chap chye, which was soft and sweet.
