Given the variety of brunch spots and specialty restaurants we have in Singapore, we’re definitely spoiled for choice. 

Although I hate to admit it, sometimes all I need is a simple yet comforting bowl of maggi for lunch (it just hits differently, if you know what I mean)

If you’re looking to satisfy that instant noodles cravings, keep reading.

Nestled in the heartlands of Boon Keng and Sengkang, Curly King offers a variety of fried instant noodles with hearty toppings. 

If you haven’t already noticed, it’s pretty much the maggi version of King of Fried Rice (inspired by the ever-so-popular Din Tai Fung)

This would be a good alternative to consider for those who aren’t exactly in the mood for rice, but still want a hearty meal.

There are four different flavours to choose from: Specialty (S$3), Tom Yum (S$4), Mala (S$4), and XO (S$4.50)

Each serving is infused with wok hei and stir-fried with ingredients like egg and onions to add a nice crunch after every bite.

For those who are feeling extra peckish, you can opt to add on meats and seafood including Shrimp, Pork Cutlet, Chicken Cutlet, and Crab Meat to make it an extra satisfying meal.

Pair the Specialty Shrimp (S$6.30) with their Lao Gan Ma-style chilli for a spicy kick and to add a depth of flavour from the fried noodles.

Besides that, the Tom Yum Crab Meat (S$10.30) sports generous amounts of crab meat and is slightly tangy to balance out the indulgent maggi. 

Top up an additional S$1 for the Tobiko — I can totally see it being a favourite for all the seafood lovers out there.

There are other ingredients that you can add on as well like the Sunny Side Up (S$1.20) for extra protein.

Craving for mala and maggi?

Get the Mala with Pork Cutlet (S$7) which boasts a tender and juicy cutlet just like the kind you’d find at other popular establishments. For those with a lower spice tolerance, don’t fret, because the sauce itself isn’t too spicy or “ma” so you can still enjoy the dish. 

The next time you find yourself wandering in the area and are looking for a simple yet indulgent meal, consider paying a visit to Curly King!
