One of Singapore's best kept secret in my opinion is the scissor cut curry rice at Beach road. All the food from this store uses the scissors to cut them into small chunks, and the store's speciality is the curry over rice. Hence, that's where it got its name.
As you can see from the photos above, they do serve other wonderful dishes too. So the next time when you visit Singapore and want to try something special. This is not a miss!
I had my Scissor Cut Curry Rice at Beach Road, unit 229-231.
The thing that I had missed the most about Singapore besides my family and friends is the food. In this post, I'm writing about my adventure with the famous chicken rice dish at Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant. The restaurant is located along Thomson road in Novena Ville, opposite Novena Church. The quality of the food is still as good as I remembered, and the Chicken is very tender and juicy. The rice is the part of the dish that I've missed the most, and it was terrific. This time I've also ordered additional dishes like the Sambal Baby Kai Lan shown in the photo below, followed by Deep Fried Tofu as seen in the photo after that.
The nearest MRT station to get to here is the Novena station located along the North South Line.
Recently, I've bought a few emperor prawns from the market to celebrate the New Year. While doing this, I did not actually have an idea how to cook one of these. So this is very much another of my cooking experiments.
I started of marinading one of the prawns with Olive oil, a pinch of salt, squeezed a bit of lemon, grinded black peppercorn, and set it aside for 30 minutes. Then, I shallow fry it in Olive oil with chopped garlic, and just before it was cooked, I added a small portion of mixed herbs. It turned out very delicious. So I thought I better document this.
I do not know what to call this dish, but it is mostly made up of beef. The other day I wanted to cook something spicy, and I do not want curry. So this was what I came up with.
- Sliced Closed-Up Mushrooms
- Minced Beef
- Chili Bean Sauce
