Mr LorBak @ Ubi - A Comforting Bowl of Lu Rou Fan At $3.50


The constant breakdowns of the MRT train services have inconvenienced many commuters but we cannot deny that it has also provided accessibility to many places which is hard to reach. A good example is the opening of the Downtime Line 3, it brings us into Ubi neighbourhood. I would never image myself traveling all the way from the West to Ubi without the new MRT line.


The opening of the new Downtime Line 3 means I can explore new places for food. One of such new places is Mr LorBak near Ubi MRT station. The stall is opened by a younger hawker, Mr William which used to would as a GM in a restaurant group before venturing on his own selling Lu Rou Fan adopting a recipe from his grandmother.

Lu Rou Fan 4/5

Unlike the Taiwanese style, the Lu Rou Fan ($3.50) here comes with chunky pieces of braised pork belly. Do not expect melted in the mouth type but a pieces of fatty belly that is well braised, infused with the different herbs and spices, and yet still have a fork tender bite to it. The braised pork belly comes across with a stronger herbal taste, which may be a bit hard for some to accept due to the hint of aftertaste bitterness.


Besides the chunky braised pork belly pieces, the bowl of Lu Rou Ran is comes with a whole braised egg and crunch black fungus. For the price, it is quite generous and value for money.

Mixed Platter 4/5

To complete the meal, you can also add on additional braised item such as tau pok, peanuts, mushroom and preserved mustard greens. I have one of each which costs me an additional $2.


Overall this is comforting rice bowl to satisfy a meal. If you do not like those strong herbal taste then you may not like the braised pork belly rice here. Do expect long queues during lunch time.
