Lin’s Braised at the Dunman Food Center
Singapore is home to many Taiwanese restaurants offering lu rou fan, AKA braised pork rice. Although the dish is quite common, Flax Braiseda peddler’s stall Dunman Food Centerbrings something new to the table by offering a Hakka style lu rou fan and more.

Lin’s Braised was started by a former manager, who decided to become a peddler during the pandemic. The stall serves braised dishes, prepared with recipes and cooking techniques learned during the founder’s travels through Taiwan.

Try it Hakka Signature Braised Pork Rice Bowl ($5.80), which comes with chunks of pork belly braised in a deliciously flavorful aromatic sauce, with tender ends. The sauce is a blend of 16 spices, so expect tons of flavor.
The meat is served on short-grain rice, accompanied by kiam cai or canned vegetables, tau kwa and a hard-boiled egg. Everything here is made from scratch, so a lot of dedication goes into every spoonful.

They also have Braised pork trotter rice ($7.30)with the same sauce, but fattier pork shanks.
Explore more of Lin’s Braised Sauce offerings with their Kway Chap Platter ($5). The portion is made for one person and comes with a platter full of offal and pork, as well as a serving of homemade kway. The platter comes with pork belly, well-cleaned offal and kway swimming in a slurpable sauce.
