Prawn-less pao fan? I know it’s borderline blasphemy, but I was too lazy to peel prawns that evening so I settled for Lobster King Pao Fan’s Iberico Pork King Pao Fan ($8.80 nett). Four slices of Iberico pork done ramen chashu style lay atop a boiling bowl of prawn soup which conceals its contents of rice, cabbage and a trio of clams.⠀

While the ingredients list in the bowl is surprisingly short, they band together to form a delicious dish that’s greater than the sum of its parts. This is mostly thanks to the piquant prawn broth, which has assimilated all the desirable umami flavours from the prawn heads & shells during the boiling of the broth. It’s a deeply & superbly savoury broth, and it might’ve been fortified with some pork bones as the broth is fuller bodied than most other prawn broths out there.⠀

The Iberico pork was tender and extra tasty, and pretty delectably fatty to boot to. The clams were nice and fresh, and there’s a hearty helping of rice submerged in that scalding broth to sate the hungry folks. I really appreciated that Lobster King were thoughtful enough to separate the crunchy deep fried rice & egg floss bits from the soup, keeping the crunchy elements that way until ready to eat. Oh, and their Secret Chili Sauce is absolutely addictive. Spicy, sweet, slightly sour and satisfyingly salty, Lobster King’s pride in their chili is well placed.⠀

For $8.80 flat, I can’t really complain about this competently crafted bowl of soupy bliss.

I choose dry w hong kong noodles (gravy) ($6.80) I felt that the gravy was quite thick and slightly salty for me. They offered some of yong tau foo can be fried such as hot dog, stuffed tofu, fishcake, etc. I usually choose bittergourd and kang kong for vegtables. I find that the serving was quite small for me tbh and don't really like to overkiap the items as it really quite expensive especially inside aircon food court.

Taste good, and there's crispy rice at the bottom. Would order this again 💯.

Curry chicken+hotplate tofu @$9.90

Value for money for sure.

Curry always very good here. Been drinking this Curry for over 10 years.

Hotplate tofu is pretty meh.

Only their Curry can make it

Yu kee speciality duck rice set ($4.80)

Comes with duck, tofu, egg, peanuts and salted veg. The whole dish was done well and it's a very cheap filling meal! The chilli was also fantastic.

Standard: decent. Portion: huat ah! Look at that. Both ytf and staple were drenched in Ampang sauce, which some more had minced meat. Look at how generous the beehoon was. There's also soup and free-flow condiments. Finally, this stall has some unusual ingredients, something we can't say about most places.
