The Place One of the places that come to mind when I think about Tiong Bahru is Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice located at Seng Poh Road. One of the Hainanese Curry Rice with the longest history in Singapore since 1946, this is a very popular spot with long queues almost every time I passed by. I had a meal here recently right before Heightened Alert, and it was still a 20 minutes queue.
The Food What to expect at Loo’s? Basically, it is ‘cai fan’ style just like most Hainanese Curry Rice stalls. Choose the dishes you fancy with dishes such as fried pork chop, braised pork belly, and stewed cabbage, and the rice drenched with a mix of braised ‘zup’ and curry sauce.
The side dish which I really like here at Loo’s is the braised pork belly! Very flavourful with just the right amount of fat, the tender pork belly is soft for words.
The pork chop is not too bad either, one important component of the dish which goes especially well with the curry sauce. I might be bias, but I can’t view pork shop the same way after trying Beo Crescent Hainanese Curry Rice fried pork chop.
Rants Expect a long queue, and seats are limited at the coffeeshop too.
Will I Return Again? A good plate of Hainanese Curry Rice in Singapore, check out Loo’s if you are in Tiong Bahru which will not disapppoint.
