Eat 3 Bowls – Cousins Sell Taiwanese Food in Hawker Centre
Started by two cousins, Ng Jiewei and Lim Pei Tang, in January 2016, Eat 3 Bowls serves affordable and tasty Taiwanese food. Prior to moving to the current location, they were operating in pasar malams. After much validation and support from a group of regulars, both Jiewei and Pei Tang quit their full time financial planner jobs to open this stall in Seah Imm Food Centre.
Both of them travelled frequently to Taiwan and did extensive research to craft what they are serving today. The Braised Pork Rice ($2.50) is steeped very deeply in Taiwanese tradition. The pork belly is cut into small pieces and braised in a gorgeous thick and savoury sauce for at least 6 hours. The pork belly has a good mixture of lean meat and fats. It’s not too oily, so I don’t feel guilty eating it.
They ran out of Pig Intestines Mee Sua ($3.50) when we ordered, so we waited for a good 30 minutes for the next batch of mee sua to be ready. Each bowl is served with minced garlic and vinegar. It was a little bland on its own, and I wished they had some chilli oil to pair with it. However, I am impressed by the huge and tender pieces of intestines.
We ordered a set meal for 2 ($15) which comes with 2 bowls of braised pork belly rice, salted crispy chicken, braised cabbage and bittergourd pork ribs soup. The salted chicken comes in huge chunks and had a thin crispy skin. It’s nicely spiced with salt, pepper and five spice powder. I like the well-braised cabbage and bittergourd pork ribs soup, which are perfect for the hot weather. They also have a set meal for 1 ($7.50).
Eat 3 Bowls serves more than decent Taiwanese food, I must say. Many Taiwanese eateries in Singapore are serving Taiwanese food at way too exorbitant prices. The prices here are really affordable and this is how Taiwanese food should be. 🙂
