Shuang Yuan, Liang Seah Street

This was another Taiwanese themed place (1 Liang Seah Street, #01-05/06, tel : +65 6336 9338) that was relatively new in the vicinity. Their lu rou fan didn't quite look like how we expected. In fact, it came generously filled with thin sliced pork and looked like a yakiniku don rather than braised pork rice with gravy. The accompanying portions of gravy was a little too little. We also ordered up a bowl of their shuang yuan noodles which came with a couple of renditions of pork - braised belly, minced and balls. Guess it was just an ordinary bowl of noodles. Nothing much to say about the flavour or texture of the noodles so I won't try. What was unexpectedly good were those very porky tasting meatballs which were made in house. The textures were chewy in a good way and the flavour was pork-alicious.

On the side, their breaded fried oysters were dry and couldn't hold up to the recent ones that we've had at Ootoya even. The stewed eggs came with overcooked yolk which really made them very ordinary.

If I ever come back, those large pork balls would probably be the only reason.
