Lin's Braised is as new stall at Dunman Food Centre that has an intriguing combination of braised pork rice and fish soup on their menu. I tried the former and it was an immensely comforting bowl of home-cooked style food from the heart.

Made from 16 spices, the braising sauce is aromatic and savoury, imbuing the pork, tau pok and tau kwa with its essence. Along with a hardboiled egg, preserved vegetables and a pile of steaming, sauce drenched rice, this is more than a complete meal on its own.

A trip to the Dunman Food Centre doesn’t seem complete without trying the famous Dunman Road Char Siew Wanton Mee. The noodles they served were much thicker than the usual egg noodles we see in other wanton mee stalls. Texture-wise, we find the noodles a bit too tough to our liking.

If you are someone who can’t take spiciness, definitely be very careful of the bright red chilli sauce! It was very very spicy and left a lingering burning sensation on our tongue. Although we understand that some people enjoy the kick from this fiery chilli, we feel that it kind of overpower the taste of the well-seasoned sauce and ingredients of this dish. While the wantons were good, the entire dish feels pretty ordinary to us and doesn’t get us WANTon-ING for more.

So I just stumbled upon this gem in the basement of Dunman Food Centre. I had already inhaled a plate of my favourite “Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Noodle” but was feeling greedy, so at the spur of the moment, decided to try food from this stall.
There were only a few dishes on display but somehow, I had an inkling they were going to taste very good. I was right. The two items I ordered - sambal goreng and the mix of paru (cow’s lung) with daging (beef) sambal were truly aromatic and delicious. If you have never enjoyed paru because you thought it’s too hard and chewy, the one here will be a revelation in spongey softness. But it’s not just that. The rempah (blend of spices) of both dishes are drool-worthy. Even the splash of sayur lodeh gravy on my rice was wonderfully fragrant and thick-ish.
I chatted briefly to the young Malay lady who owns this stall and she said although she has walk-in customers, the bulk of her business is catering. There is a Whatsapp number on her @daunlimaurecipes account for orders to be placed if you are keen to try. And I do think if you are like me and enjoy rich, spicy Malay food, you should. She does hers really well.


Ikan Bilis Vadai

💸 $1.50

This is my favourite type of Indian snack! And hers is the best I’ve had so far! Very crispy exterior with lots of ikan bilis and crunchy peanut bits 🥜 love to have it with the green chilli 😋 will try the prawn or veggie vadai next


Never seen or tried this old school dish Tau Kwa Pau before. $1.50 per piece of deep fried firm tofu cut into half, stuffed with fishcake, fried yam bits, hard boiled egg, braised pork belly & cucumber, all chopped up. Served with braised duck thick gravy and v aromatic special chilli sauce 🌶 If only it’s warm, will taste even better

Located on the second level, this Chicken Rice stall run by an elderly couple, gets my vote for best breakfast/rainy day porridge. I’ll usually have the Minced Pork Porridge with a raw Egg (no extra charge). Porridge consistency is thick, almost congee like, and served with generous amounts of YouTiao and Spring Onions.
