An Lock Curry Rice – Impressive Array of Home-styled Dishes!
I only took notice of North Bridge Road Market & Food Centre when the bus, which I happened to be on, passed by it. Before I made a trip down, I had this mindset that there would be lesser people if I went there early. To my horror, the place was packed, and it was only 10.15am! Not only that, there was already a queue in front of An Lock Curry Rice. I quickly found myself a seat and proceeded to order my food.
An Lock Curry Rice seems to be one of the more popular stalls in the food centre, judging from online reviews and the queue. The sight of the impressive array of home-styled dishes is enough to whet one’s appetite.
My plate of rice with fried pork chops, char siew and stewed cabbage cost me just $3.20. That’s a lot of meat for breakfast, but I just couldn’t resist! To be honest, the stewed cabbage was just a pretentious addition to make the meal a tad more balanced. I would’ve ordered the fried fish or chicken wing, but it was breakfast, you see. Okay, that’s enough rambling. Moving on!
The char siew was the first thing that caught my eye. That red, glistening beauty looked immensely appetizing, I just had to order some. There were six people in front of me, and four of them ordered the char siew. “Is it really that tasty?” I thought to myself. I placed the char siew into my mouth, and my eyes lit up. The sauce that coated the char siew, was sweet and savoury, with just the slightest tang. It was the perfect accompaniment to the curry rice. If you are a char siew lover, you have to order this!
I’ve noticed that it seems like a thing to order pork chop whenever you eat curry rice. The pork chop may look unappealing, but it tasted way better than it looked. It was sliced to the right thickness, and fried to golden perfection.
The sweetness from the stewed cabbage helped to cut through the richness of the char siew and pork chops.
An Lock Curry Rice has been in business for 10 years now. Everything is cooked fresh daily and served piping hot. Their curry isn’t the type you get at a Hainanese curry rice stall — it’s similar to chicken curry, but a little thinner. There isn’t a price list, so I wasn’t sure how my food was charged. Anyway, $3.20 for this big plate of food was quite a steal. You will likely see a queue, but don’t worry as it moves along quickly.
