I’d heard so much about this curry rice. Over drinks once, a friend was reminiscing about his lunch, “I went down to Tiong Bahru and bought two packets of curry pork chop rice. I ate one there and brought the other back to the office and ate it later on. I’m not very hungry now.”
I just had to try this much talked about ‘curry rice’ and its famous pork chop accompaniment.
Doesn’t get more local than this – a typical coffeshop scene. I like Tiong Bahru. It is alive yet laid back. Heartland yet not far-flung. Check out the mosaic floor tiles.
Washed down with a good ol’ black coffee. Kopi-O.
