Curry rice in Singapore
Drizzling gravy sparingly on your rice has got to be a crime. If my rice isn’t swimming in gravy, I’m not having it. Curry rice is, therefore, one of my biggest guilty pleasures─more curry, please! Whether you’re after local-style cai png curry, or sticky gooey Hainanese curry, here are 10 places for curry rice in Singapore.
1. Gorilla Curry
Three generations run Gorilla Curry, a coffeeshop stall in Bukit Batok with a curry recipe that was created more than 40 years ago. More than 10 different ingredients go into the making of this curry, which is fragrant without being overly lemak and jelak. Every portion of rice comes with generous lashings of curry and drizzles of braised gravy, both of which are freshly made every day.
Proteins-wise, take your pick from double-fried Crispy Cutlet ($4), Gorilla Curry Chicken ($4.50) that features a whole chicken drumstick, or double it up with melt-in-your-mouth braised pork belly in the Signature Double Delights Set Meal ($6). There’s even a Salted Egg Cutlet Curry Rice ($6) if you’re after something different. Each of these comes with white rice, and fresh lettuce. What’s more, they’re right beside Changi Nasi Lemak so you can even add their Legendary Changi Chilli, or nasi lemak ingredients, for an extra special meal!
Address: 323 Bukit Batok Street 33, Singapore 650323
Opening hours: Tues-Sun 8:30am to 3pm

Eleven Finger Scissors Curry Rice is tucked away at the back of a kopitiam at Queen Street but despite its location, the stall can be easily spotted by the long queue snaking out during lunch time. Along with four different types of curry sauce, a plate of rice with chicken wings, pork cutlet, and braised cabbage would cost you
