So Pao Fan has been the hype since the end of last year and I finally tried it! We visited King of Pao Fan in Bugis and got the Half Live Lobster Pao Fan ($18) and Duo Pao Fan ($6). The lobster had substantial amount of meat that was juicy and fresh. Really worth the price. The rice was soaked in the seafood broth that was sweet and rich. The dish was also topped with crispy rice puff and fried egg floss that gave a good contrast in texture to the soupy pao fan. The Duo Pao Fan was really good too. With the same broth, the only difference was that it was served with generous amount of fried and boiled fish slices. I'm personally not a fan of pao fan but throughly enjoyed the unami soup, as well as the fresh and meaty lobster that came with it.

Rating: 8 / 10

Each spoonful of this broth packed a flavourful punch, perhaps slightly towards the salty side but sinfully delicious nevertheless. May get slightly overwhelming towards the end of the dish just because of how rich the broth is.

The duo style came with steamed and fried fish, similar to a fish soup dish. I liked the fried egg floss and crispy rice puffs as toppings which added texture to the dish.

We visited on an early weekday evening so there was little to no queue. Not too bad to give a try if you’re around the area, but I wouldn’t travel for this.

Was excited to try but this was a major disappointment. Visually, there was a layer of film (the fat congealing as it cooled) so that was kinda off putting. Taste wise, it failed to impress as well.

Soup: the seafood one had additional seafoody sweetness compared to the fish ones, the fried fish one was extremely oily. The sliced fish one was the nicest out of the 3, but all 3 didn’t rly have that depth of flavour? It’s not bland by any means, just that I really can’t say that it’s good soup.

Ingredients: sliced fish has a slight fishy smell, fried fish was average, seafood was okay.

Overall this was really really meh, I don’t know what’s the hype about or why there is a queue for this. If you come to this coffee shop you’re better off having the porridge, leicha looks good, there’s a decent lor mee here too. Don’t waste your stomach space!

Located a stone throw away from @bugisjunctionxbugisplus , @kingofpaofan is known for pairing their flavorful seafood broth with fresh seafood such as lobster, prawns, fish and clams at reasonable prices.

Their 𝐒𝐞𝐚𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐏𝐚𝐨 𝐅𝐚𝐧 ($7.50) comes with 𝙛𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙝 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙬𝙣𝙨, 𝙘𝙡𝙖𝙢𝙨 and 𝙘𝙝𝙪𝙣𝙠𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝙛𝙞𝙨𝙝 soaked in a rich and umami seafood broth. As the seafood broth was simmered for at least 10 hours using prawn heads, fish and pork bones, it’s no surprise that their broth contains all the seafood umami goodness! As such, the soup was packed full of umami-ness with subtle sweetness, making way for a very hearty affair.

Next, I tried the 𝐃𝐮𝐨 𝐒𝐭𝐲𝐥𝐞 𝐏𝐚𝐨 𝐅𝐚𝐧 ($6.50) which consists of both 𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙚𝙙 𝙛𝙞𝙨𝙝, giving you the best of both worlds. Ideal for fish soup fans, the broth was comforting and flavorful. But I personally prefer the seafood pao fan soup as it embodies a fuller and more complex flavor.

Each bowl of pao fan was topped with fried egg floss and a sprinkle of golden-brown crispy fried rice. Love the added crunch from those crispy fried rice!

I do agree that not many places serve pao fan and even if they do, the price point is slightly higher. I like it that @kingofpaofan has a range of offerings, from 𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙤𝙢𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙤𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 like Clam Pao Fan ($4.50) to more 𝙡𝙪𝙭𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙤𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 like Lobster Pao Fan ($18). Definitely a place to check out for your pao fan cravings!

We went to the branch at 40 Holland drive. They didn’t have the signature lobster pao fan , so we had the seafood one - prawns, clams, fried fish, sliced fish. The broth is so delish we had to have another bowl.

Finally got to try their pao fan since they always close early at around 730pm. I actually wanted to try their Half Lobster Pao Fan but it was already out of stock at around 6pm.

Decided to order this instead at SGD7 which surprisingly comes with 4 standard-sized prawns. Really hearty and tasty.

Definitely not my last time eating this...
