Hainanese Curry Rice, Pasir Panjang Food Centre

Hmmm....this was pretty good stuff there (Stall 41, Pasir Panjang Food Centre, 121 Pasir Panjang Road). Judging from the variety of food from the stall, these guys seem to be one of those that didn't offer too much in terms of choice, but did whatever they did pretty well enough that the lunch crowd from the neighboring areas seem to flock to the queue here.

While not the best representatives of such Hainanese curry rice stalls, their dishes on the sides were very decently done. From the assam mackerel to the braised cabbage or pork belly in dark soy sauce. What I particularly enjoyed was the expertly done pork chops which were freshly fried with a thin and crispy breaded surface which didn't feel the least greasy. The meat was also not overly thin to the point that most of the texture came from the crusty surface. That definitely reminded me of the days back when I was a kid having them in the old Maxwell market. The real deal compared to the oil laden and soggy types that one tends to come across these days.
