Lau Di Fang Scissors-Cut Curry Rice

Scissors Cut Curry Rice

If the food in the photo looks like a random pile of "economic rice," that's because it more or less was. I was more interested in this because of the odd-sounding name. It was called such because of that breaded pork cutlet in the foreground, which was cut with a pair of scissors before being thrown onto the plate. It pretty much tasted like I expected it to: lukewarm, greasy, and nothing too remarkable, although the whole garlic cloves in the cabbage as well as the coconut-heavy curry were pleasant surprises.

LDF is actually a pretty famous economy rice stall but from the pic, u probably ate it from a food court right. The authentic version can be found near little india, walking distance from lavender food court at eminent plaza. its open till late i think and its bound to be much better..

How strange that the cutting utensil used would feature in the name. Did it taste different to if it were cut with a knife?

I wonder if anyone else says "I love scissor cut food"?

it doesnt look right! the scissors curry rice should come with a thick darker gravy. an authentic stall would spoon curry and a black thick gravy together onto your rice. and they should be cutting everything with their scissors. :) everything that can be cut that is. not veggies. :p
