The establishment near Tiong Bahru market first started out in 1946 and is currently helmed by Mr Loo Kia Chee, who took over the business from his father. His father had started out selling curry rice after the Japanese occupation, and his customers were mainly dock workers. He has been running the business for over 40 years and they have been using the same traditional Hainanese curry recipes for the past few years. In total, it has been around for a whopping 75 years old! Since they first opened, they have increased the number of dishes they sell so diners can have more variety.

When I went down, the shop was about to close for the day, but they still had about 5 dishes left to choose from. I got the fried pork chop, sotong and curry chicken which were sloppily dumped on top of a piping hot bed of rice. The pork chop, which is a classic item at most curry rice shops, was fried to a nice golden crisp and extremely crunchy and tender. I also really liked the sotong which was chewy and fresh. The curry also gave the entire dish a nice savoury, sweet and slightly spicy touch that really pulled the dish together. It truly is a simple, no-frills and affordable dish that is extremely comforting and nostalgic.
