Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice needs no introduction. The snaking queues at their previous Seng Poh Road Coffeeshop location, and now, at their new outlet in Tiong Bahru Market, show how big their loyal customer base is. Their new space spans 2 hawker stalls which previously housed the Original Tiong Bahru Golden Pig & Roasted.
Loo’s has been in Tiong Bahru since 1946, so it was comforting to know that their new stall was still in the neighbourhood. Mr Loo Kia Chee, the second-generation owner, has been at the helm for more than 40 years, leading his rather large team. Don’t be deterred by the long queues which could start forming from as early as 10am, as service is quick.
To up the Shiok factor, I had to order their famous dishes, which include their Pork Chop, and a bowl of their famed 3-day curry.
