Braised Pork Rice

$2.50 · 55 Reviews

Eat 3 Bowls 呷三碗 is a taiwanese classroom concept cafe, at the corner of 462 Crawford Lane, with canvas school bags hanging on the chair and school books as menus ☺️😍

Lu Rou Fan is a staple food in Taiwan and since we already knew what we wanted and craved for, we got their Signature Braised Pork Rice ($4.50) 😋 You can also top up $3.50 to complete your meal with vege and egg! A definite must-try for first timers, this mini bowl of 卤肉 was soft and moist which literally melts in your mouth.. psst many people came back for this!! And although the portion may seem small, it is surprisingly quite filling 😌
I must also say that I was really attracted by their big cup of Brown Sugar Bubble Milk ($3.80). Lots of chewy pearls, but a little TOO much and the drink was just milky and lacked the brown sugar taste.
.
Anyways, if you still can’t decide what to get, you can order their Eat 3 Bowls set ($15) to try three mini bowls of all their specialty dishes, as well as a drink of your choice!

The set comes with three mini bowls of their Braised Pork Rice, Taiwanese-style Chicken Rice and Intestine Mee Sua. Though the portion seemed small, it was surprisingly quite filling actually! Braised pork rice obviously took the lead with a burst of umami with every bite, there was just enough fatty to lean minced meat coated with just enough sauce that went beautifully with the rice 🐽🐽 Next in line was the Taiwanese-style Chicken Rice surprisingly, but what really caught me off guard was how well the special sauce went with the shredded chicken and was a very refreshing bowl! The intestine meesua was very average with only 1 oyster and sorely lacking vinegar. The Taiwanese Bubble Milk Tea ($3.80) was nice as well, not too sweet with lots of soft chewy pearls. Definitely a must try for first-timers, but would definitely be back to order a big bowl of the luroufan! 😍😍

Braised pork rice ($4.50)

Braised pork was very flavourful and well braised. Soft and melts in the mouth. Goes very well with the rice.

It's a must try!!

• 卤肉饭 Braised Pork Rice Set (S$8)

A set meal comes with a bowl of braised pork rice, braised cabbage and onsen tamgo. The braised pork’s sauce was savory, complements well with the rice with a punch of umami. The braised cabbage tastes like chap chye, not bad.

• Oyster Intestine Mee Sua (S$6.50)

The tender pieces of braised intestines and slightly gamey oysters found in this perfect consistency bowl of mee sua. Minced garlic and coriander was added too. Great comfort food!

Experience authentic Taiwanese fare in this 90s classroom setting that serves up street staples, such as Lu Rou Fan ($8 with a side dish), Chicken Rice and Oyster Intestine Meesua. Get more bang for your buck with their Mini 3 Bowl Set ($15) that allows you the luxury of sampling all three dishes in smaller (but still very hearty) portions!

Very popular Taiwanese cafe with taiwanese street staples such as Lu Rou Fan, Oyster Mee Sua and Beef noodles as mains. We were lucky to get a table within minutes but a queue of 7-8 groups quickly formed outside the cafe as we ate.

Nice and authentic, pricier than what you may be used to if you are a regular to Taiwan but hey, one of the better places in Singapore if you miss Taiwanese comfort food.

Tried their Eat 3 bowls with Drink $15 (Fresh Milk with Brown Sugar Pearls) and Braised Pork Rice Set ($8). Braised pork wasn’t those low quality minced meat you get usually outside at the food courts, it will literally melt in your mouth and goes so well with their rice! Meesua and chicken rice were both okay only.

BBT has really chewy pearls, other than that, it’s pretty normal.

Would definitely return for their Luroufan!

The braised pork rice alone is worth a trip here. The Taiwanese sausage and the herbal pork ribs soup complimented it very well.

To get a quality and umami bowl of braised pork rice, most people will usually say that it’s best to eat it in Taiwan since it was originated from there. On this topic, I completely agree with that statement that the best foods are from its original source, but if you do not have the luxury and time to fly to Taiwan, the next best alternative in Singapore is to head over to Eat 3 Bowls as their rendition of Braised Pork Rice ($4.50) can definitely rival the ones from Taiwan. Served on a bowl of pearl white rice, the braised diced and fatty pork sauce is heaped on top of it and as the fats slowly melt away onto the bottom of the rice mountain, the rice gets flavoured in a manner that you can complete the entire bowl just by itself. Additionally, you’ll know that it’s a good braise when your lips get slightly sticky from the umaminess.

Fortunately, they have since shifted to Crawford Lane and opened a cafe with a lineup of classic Taiwanese comfort food. If it’s your first time there, my recommendation is to get their Eat 3 Bowls Set ($15), which consists of their top 3 signatures namely the Braised Pork Rice, Chicken Rice and Intestine Mee Sua. All 3 bowls come in mini-sized tasting portion so that you will be too stuffed at the end of it. The set also comes with a drink, which you should get the bubble tea latte that comes with boba pearls. It was tough to choose a favourite as each bowl had a unique personality and likeability, all bringing back fond memories of my travels in Taiwan. Pictured is the vermicelli noodle that is served in a thick gravy that also contains oysters and intestines. Each slurp is packed full of flavours that is balanced off with the minced garlic and vinegar in it.
