No frills Taiwanese eatery, food was decent; the braised meat rice and fried stuff were good! Would return if in the area. Would be better if Burpple menu was expanded

We wanted to get a noodle dish that is different from our usual 担担面 or 炸酱面 and we hence decided to get a bowl of noodles with Din Tai Fung's signature pork chop and special sauce. The pork chop was great as usual because the portion was really generous and the meat was really tender. The exterior was fried very lightly and the meat wasn't overly oily as well :)

However, the noodles with the supposed special sauce was just disappointing. The special sauce was nothing much and it tasted largely like soy sauce to me so don't get your hopes up too high! Noodles also felt a little too soggy and they were starting to clump together when the dish was served.

We would get the pork chop again but certainly not the noodles! The dish was around $10++ and we think it is kinda fair given that the pork chop was big and pretty great!

If we are paying a visit to Din Tai Fung, we will be sure to order their standard xiaolongbao, which costs around $12++ for 10 pieces. Pretty standard dim sum and as good as ever because they burst in your mouth and you get to enjoy the flavourful stock hidden in the bao. The amount of broth and pork in each bao is also pretty generous! Din Tai Fung also does their xiaolongbao pretty well because none of our baos burst when we were trying to pick them up. 😁

However, we were very surprised to find that the restaurant was rather crowded even when we visited for lunch at 2.30 pm on a Friday afternoon. We had to queue for half an hour to get a table so do buffer some time for queueing if you are planning to visit!

all the mini bowls were really mini. gotta get a few to fill you up. they were all pretty authentic and homely! the sides were good. fried chicken SO crispy and well seasoned.

can skip!
i find that the meat was rather dry. while it was tender and had some fats in it, the entire meat did not have a drip of gravy on it

west lake is still probably the best imo

i really enjoyed the gravy of this chicken pot. I find that the portion of the chicken was abit too little for its pricing

This dish was not too bad. Pork Chop was tender and crispy!! Fried rice had some wok hey in it

The moment I stepped into Isshin Machi’s GR.iD Mall outlet, I was immediately drawn to the very Instagrammable decor of the place with its nice wall murals, and nostalgic Mandopop playlist playing (which gave me all the feels). We also tried some of the food on their menu like:

~Crispy Chicken Cutlet
~Hakka-style Braised Meat Rice (Lu Rou Fan)
~Signature Taiwanese Braised Beef Noodles (w/ Guan Miao Noodles)
~Moon Shape Prawn Cake
~Shrimp & Pork Wontons w/ Fiery Chilli Oil
~Cucumber w/ Spicy Garlic
~Salt & Pepper Green Beans

Some of my personal favourites are the Crispy Chicken Cutlet (crunchy, juicy & nicely seasoned!), Signature Taiwanese Braised Beef Noodles (beef is tender, soup pretty robust and noodles have a nice texture!), Moon Shape Prawn Cake (very crisp & goes really well with the sauce!), and Cucumber w/ Spicy Garlic (a refreshing appetiser!).

Isshin Machi also has 2 other outlets located at East Coast and Holland Village respectively. Drop by for a taste of Taiwan in Singapore!

Oyster Intestine Mee Sua ($7.20). The mee sua is very different from the one you got from Shilin. It’s full of ingredients and it's very well balanced, not too salty. If the price is like in Taiwan, I will give it 💯/💯! ✅

With the travel VTL still not yet opened for Taiwan, this is one of the places that you can visit to get a taste of Taiwanese cuisine. Furthermore, each of the Isshin Machi’s outlets has a unique theme to it and the one over at GR.iD mall is dedicated to Taiwanese Mando Pop music which is recognizable from the huge wall mural in the restaurant. The menu has a wide variety of familiar local cuisine such as the Hakka-style Braised Meat Rice ($9) that is packed with a generous serving of braised pork belly, braised egg, and preserved vegetables over a bed of rice and the Signature Taiwanese Braised Beef Noodles ($12) that has the option to change to the Guan Miao Noodles with an additional top-up of $1.

To accompany the mains, there are sides and snacks such as the iconic Crispy Chicken Cutlet ($9.80) that has been seasoned with a salt and pepper mixture, Shrimp & Pork Wontons with Fiery Chilli Oil ($7) that caters to the Singaporeans’ palate, unique Moon Shape Prawn Cake ($11), Salt and Pepper Green Beans ($5) and the cold appetizer of Cucumber with Spicy Garlic Dressing ($4.30). Entering into the Isshin Machi’s world is like being transported to Taiwan for that brief moment which is very comforting and enjoyable at this very moment.

The 卤肉饭 ($9) was brilliant with pork belly cubes stewed to perfect tenderness! 💗 All about Taiwanese food, attractions, mando pop music & movies 🎬, just head down to any of their 3 uniquely themed branches for an immersive experience! 👍🏻

Slurp on their hearty bowl of Beef Noodles ($12), which includes thick chunks of succulent beef 🐄, thick chewy noodles in a light yet flavourful broth that has a slight hint of herbs.
