How did poached chicken and curry come back together? While Singapore is the birthplace of Hainanese chicken rice, another dish that is often overlooked is curry chicken noodles.
I mean, laksa always gets all the attention.
My other major question is that some stalls that specialize in fish balls also sell curry chicken noodles - how did this happen? For example, Jurong Fangyuan Fishball Noodles at Ayer Raja Food Center and Fat Kee at Kovan Food Centre.
If you are looking for curry chicken noodle this is the best place for youHong Lim Cooked Food Center.
Na dnu je Heng Kee Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Mee - obviously original, i ovaj chilli umak; i Ah Heng Chicken Curry Bee Hoon Mee, koji sada ima Michelin recommended.
Cantonese delights (#02-03) and Ji Ji Wanton Noodles (#02-49) also offer curry noodles with crispy chicken chops, but they vary in style.
Here are some of the best places to find curry chicken noodles in Singapore:
Ah Hing Curry Rice Vermicelli
Blk 531A, Upper Cross Street #02-57/58, Hong Lim Market and Food Centre, Singapore 051531
Working hours: 10:00-21:00 (Monday-Friday), 8:00-21:00 (Saturday-Sunday)
The only item at Ah Heng's stall is the Curry Chicken Rice Noodles ($5, $6, $7), which come in different sizes.
The dish is made with honey bee hoon (rice noodles) or yellow noodles in a laksa-like curry soup, topped with ingredients such as potato cubes, sponge bean curd (fried tofu), sliced fish cakes, bean sprouts and Hainanese chicken. A main course, meat protein.
By the way, potatoes are my favorite - soft and tender but not falling apart in the middle.
Pasta has a smooth, slippery texture, so it's best eaten with a spoon. It comes with a special chili sauce dish on the side.
Even though the base is oil, it's not too heavy or thick like normal curry, so you can finish it off.Piletina Ah Heng Curry Bee Hoon Mee (Hong Lim Cooked Food Centre)
Hing Kee Curry Chicken Noodles
Blk 531A, Upper Cross Street #01-58, Hong Lim Market and Food Centre, Singapore 051531
Working hours: 10:30 - 14:30 (Tuesday to Saturday), Sunday, Monday.
Some people like to go up, some people like to go down. (Ah Heng tastes more predictable and nauseating, while Heng Kee is really tasty.)
Heng Kee, said to be the original here, offers curry chicken noodles in two sizes—a standard bowl ($5.50) and a large bowl ($8).
Just keep in mind that the wait may be longer, even if the line doesn't look long. Here, falconers shred the chicken to ensure extra freshness.
Curries are usually rich and spicy, but not as rich and coconut-y. This sambal chilli paste (just one plate) is the best addition you can add to a sauce because it enhances the flavor.

Tai Po Hainanese Chicken Rice Curry Chicken Noodles
Golden Mile Food Center B1-53, 505 Beach Road Singapore 199583
Working hours: 11:00-20:00 (Tuesday-Sunday)
"Is my curry any good? How do you know us?"Aunty was very kind when she found out my friend was trying her curry chicken noodle for the first time.
The Curry Chicken Noodle ($5, A$6) consists of chunks of boiled chicken, soft potatoes, fish cake slices, tofu, soft bean sprouts and best of all...pork rind. They are really generous with ingredients.
Made with fresh coconut milk, the curry paste is not too oily and delicious - you can easily eat a whole bowl.
I would say it's just balanced and not very richlemak.
The cooked chicken was tender and moist. This curry chicken noodle stall also sells chicken rice, is it just as good?
Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Chicken Curry Noodles
208 New Upper Changi Road, #01-58 Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre, Singapore 462208
Working hours: 9:30 - 22:30 (Monday to Sunday)
Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Chicken Curry Noodles has been around long before the Bedok Interchange Hawker Center renovation in 2013.
Known for its stuffed noodle bowls, it offers generous portions of curry chicken noodles ($4, $5, $6).
A large pot of curry filled with ingredients on the stall will let you smell the aroma of freshly cooked food from afar.
The curry chicken noodle was served in a hot curry soup which was tasty, medium bodied and slightly spicy.
Inspired by grandmother's homemade soup base, mixed with various spices and coconut milk, the taste is slightly sweet, sour and spicy.
If you thought the sauce would be thick like curry, it is actually closer to the consistency of laksa.
After trying many curry mee in Singapore, I found this one to be milder and not as thick. I can imagine some people would appreciate a tastier, more aromatic curry.Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Curry Chicken Noodles (Bedok Interchange Food Centre)
Fuhai Curry Chicken Noodles
Albert Centre Market & Food Centre #01-104, 270 Queen Street, Singapur 180270
Working hours: 8:30 - 19:00 (Monday to Sunday)
Another curry chicken noodle that says "No other branch" is called "Fu Hai". One wonders what this has to do with another "Fu Hai" (Hock Hai) at Bedok Interchange Food Centre.
For $5, one of the reasons the curry paste is delicious is because it's cooked in chicken stock.
Only fresh chicken weighing between 1.9 and 2kg is harvested, cooked and then frozen to keep the chicken tender and juicy.
The sauce seemed lighter, not as rich and full of flavor as others. However, if you like something that's not too difficult, this might be the right choice.
Sheng Kee Curry Chicken Noodles
#01-45 Jln Besar, 166 Berseh Food Center Singapore 208877
Opening hours: 6:00 - 15:30 (Tuesday - Sunday), closed on Mondays
This is a surprising discovery. I ordered it and didn't expect much as it's not considered famous, but it was a delicious bowl of curry chicken noodles. (I think I prefer it to the "Michelin" booth.)
Besides, my uncle is also very kind. He'll ask which part of the chicken you like (e.g. breast, thigh, or drumstick), and you'll ask for more bean sprouts andnumber.
The Chicken Curry Noodles ($4, $5, $6) come in three sizes and are filled with ingredients for a bowl of curry soup — chunks of soft, juicy cooked chicken, bean sprouts, soft potatoes,indexand fish cakes.
The curry paste is rich in flavor without being overpowering or oily, with the richness and goodness of the tender chicken and noodles.
If you want a stronger flavor, add a spoonful of chilli to mix with the noodles.
209 Hougang Street 21, Kovan Market and Food Centre 01-35, Singapur 530209
Working hours: 7:00 - 21:00 (Tuesday - Sunday), closed on Monday
Interestingly, the Kovan Market and Food Center in Hougang has a lot of stalls selling curry chicken noodles - but this one is more convenient.
Two of the standout stalls are Fat Kee Minced Meat Fishball Noodles and Yin Nian – both have their fans.
Yam Mee serves curry chicken noodles ($4) with a gravy consistency closer to Laksa - so it's more "watered down" and probably lackslemakwealth.
The cooked chicken, while moist, was not cut well so it was on the bone. Still a decent try, but I think people come here for the fish balls.
