Abundance @ Redhill - Popular Taiwanese Restaurant Rolled Out New Dishes


Nestled in the heart of Redhill, Abundance stands tall as a popular Taiwanese restaurant, beckoning food enthusiasts to savour the rich tapestry of Taiwanese flavours. Intrigued by the restaurant's reputation, I ventured to Abundance to explore its offerings, specifically diving into its latest creations.

Gua Bao 3.8/5

I commenced with the timeless classic, the Gua Bao ($7.90). A tender slab of pork belly embraced by soft, fluffy buns adorned with salted vegetables and crusted peanuts. While the amalgamation of textures was commendable, I found the flavour profile slightly leaning towards sweetness, longing for a more pronounced savoury note.

Herbal Braised Pork Rice 4/5

Transitioning to the new dishes, I delved into the Herbal Braised Pork Rice ($12.90) — an ingenious fusion of Lu Rou Fan and traditional Herbal Pork Ribs Soup. Succulent pork belly, simmered in a harmonious blend of herbs, graced the dish. The accompaniments, including pickled cucumber, Taiwanese garlic sausage, and a fried sesame egg, elevated the experience. The bed of Japanese pearl rice served as a canvas for this delicious bowl of rice.

Stir-Fried Emperor Sprouts 3.5/5

Another new dish is the Stir-Fried Emperor Sprouts ($11.90). Bathed in flavourful chicken stock and crowned with crispy garlic, the dish promised a crunchy texture and aromatic finish. While the crunch was delightful, a slightly heavier hand with seasoning would enhance the overall taste.

Golden Chicken Mee Sua 4.2/5

The aromatic Golden Chicken Mee Sua ($13.90) is the other new creation, featuring mee sua directly imported from Taiwan. These delicate wheat noodles boast a silky texture that is both smooth and tender. Complementing this delightful base is a succulent pan-fried chicken thigh, expertly cooked to juicy perfection. The dish is further enriched with a fragrant blend of sesame oil and premium Shaoxing Hua Diao Jiu, creating a flavourful symphony that invites you to savour each mouthful. Immerse yourself in the delightful essence of yellow wine that permeates this exquisite creation, making it a truly aromatic and satisfying dish.

Fei Lou Fatt @ Upper Thomson Road - White Restaurant Group Opens New Prawn Noodle & Lok Lok Concept


Newly opened at Upper Thomson Road, beside Springleaf MRT station exit 1 is Fei Lou Fatt, a Prawn Noodle and Lok Lok concept by the White Restaurant Group.

Signature Fei Lou Noodle Soup 4.2/5

We started with the Signature Fei Lou Noodle Soup ($20), which comes with 3 half sliced Ang Kar prawns, fork-tender braised pork ribs and abalone in a slurp-worthy bowl of umami-rich prawn broth. The broth's rich flavour comes from the generous use of fresh prawn heads, slow-cooked for up to 10 hours. Unlike other prawn noodles stalls, the pork ribs here are braised, flavouring the tenderness enjoyment.

Signature Fei Lou Noodle Dry 4/5

There is also a dry version of the Signature Fei Lou Noodle Dry ($20), which is tossed in an addictive homemade hae bee hiam volcano chilli that complements the ingredients and the noodle.

The prawn noodle comes with an assortment of choice ingredients such as the Big Prawn Noodle ($16), Prawn Noodle (Small: $8, Big: $11), Prawn and Braised Pork Ribs Noodle (Small: $8, Big: $11) and Braised Pork Ribs Noodle (Small: $8, Big: $11). There are both soup and dry versions, and the choice of noodles include the usual suspects of Bee Hoon, Thick Bee Hoon, Kway Teow and Yellow Noodle to suit different palates.


Big Prawn Zuke 4.2/5

The Big Prawn Zuke ($16) is a unique offering on the menu, inspired by Ochazuke (rice porridge). It is served with fragrant fluffy Japanese rice topped with big succulent Ang Kar prawns and a crispy homemade fried rice cracker for a textural crunch. There is also the Prawn-zuke ($8) version which comes with vannamei prawns.

Braised Pork Ribs with Rice 4/5

I asked the owner which is his favourite dish on the menu, and he recommended that we try the Braised Pork Ribs with Rice ($6.80). It is not the Taiwanese-style version, but it is a delicious rice bowl with fork tender meat.

Lok Lok 4/5


Apart from the mains, customers can pick from a wide variety of over 20 types of Lok Lok ($1.20 to $3) to complement their meal. There are 4 different types of seasoning to choose from - Sze Chuan Mala, Seaweed, BBQ and Furikake. In addition, have them with the dipping sauces (Mayonnaise, Thai Sweet Chilli and Thai Seafood Green Chilli) for the ultimate lok lok experience.

Note: This is an invited tasting.

Eat 3 Bowls Station (呷三碗車站) @ Pasir Panjang - Homecoming With Its 2nd Outlet In The West


I visited Eat 3 Bowls Station (呷三碗車站) when it first started as a hawker stall at Seah Im Food Centre back in 2017. However, the hawker stall is no longer around as the young hawkers have opened a dine-in restaurant at Crawford Lane. Sometime early this year, it opened its 2nd dine-in outlet at Pasir Panjang, nearer my home.

Braised Pork Rice 4.5/5

A must-have is the Braised Pork Rice ($5). I enjoyed their version of braised pork with a mix of fatty and lean cuts. What makes it even more delectable is the soft and pearly rice underneath, absorbing the delicious braising sauce.

Chicken Rice 4.2/5

The Chicken Rice ($5) may look plain, but the shredded chicken is well flavoured. The caramelised shallots lent a lovely fragrance to the tender chicken. Though the rice used is not those flavoured Hainanese chicken rice, the plain, soft and pearly rice complements the shredded chicken excellently.

Bittergourd Pork Rib Soup 4.2/5

I remembered having the Bittergourd Pork Rib Soup ($5.50) when I visited their hawker stall. Back then, it was so bad that I give it a score of one out of five. This time, it is much flavourful and refreshing. It has redeemed itself.

Braised Chinese Cabbage 4.2/5

I also remembered having the Braised Chinese Cabbage ($5.20) back then. It is stewed to a delightful softness. Compare to the previous version I had, this version is richer in taste with the pungent aroma of dried shrimp.

Oyster and Intestine Mee Sua 4.5/5

Another signature at Eat 3 Bowls Station is the Oyster and Intestine Mee Sua ($7.20). It is probably the most authentic Taiwan rendition I have eaten so far. It uses red mee sua, plump oyster and bouncy pig intestines for the bowl of slurping goodness. The addition of garlic and vinegar completed the full appreciation of the mee sua.


Though Eat 3 Bowls has an East outlet, I haven't visited it as it is pretty far from my home. I am glad it has returned to the area where it first started, nearer to my home. Now I can easily satisfy my craving for Taiwanese cuisine.
