This obscure stall is located in an old landed housing estate. I doubt if there is a high volume of footfall, you’ve got to be going there specifically for a purpose or you live around there.

I saw a review online and since we were craving for Taiwanese, decide to go see whether this is any good. Due to this stupid rule of 2 pax dine in limit, I am forced to Da Bao home. Worried this will not do justice to the food itself.

I ordered their Popcorn Chicken Braised Pork Bento $8.80, Intestine Mee Sua $5.80 (but they ran out of intestines at 11.20am so replace with oysters huh?) and Pork Belly Bun $3.80. The bento was still warm and the rice was still moist. The braised pork was cut into small cubes so it melts in the mouth. The pop corn chicken was normal but being crispy it added another dimension in texture. One braised egg that did nothing much for the bento but the added pickles and salted vegetables came through. Their sourness and crunchiness were a delight and they balanced against the mainly sweet and salty elements from the braised pork and the pop corn chicken.

I won’t review the Intestine Mee Sua cause it had none. The Pork Belly Bun was quick normal but I must say the extra thought in packing the pork and the bun separately with pickled vegs at the side makes sense as the pork belly is juicy and comes with some gravy. Won’t do if the bun soaks some of that and becomes soggy by the time you reach home.

The place is an old Kopi Tiam filled with boomers flouting COVID prevention rules of 2 in a group. Not sure if you want to join that crowd so Da Bao is not a bad option as I can vouch for the taste after a 20 mins ride home and another 10 more mins before tucking in. Well done!

It feels great to finally return to Eng Kong Terrace in quite a while — hadn’t really been dropping by this serene neighbourhood for a while ever since Necessary Provisions moved out of this spot more than a couple of years ago; just liked how it’s situated in this really quiet private housing estate that is slightly far-flung from the main Beauty World area. Situated within the same coffeeshop that houses EK Gourmet, The Voice is a new stall that had opened recently that serves up Taiwanese cuisine.

The menu does come with several items that are seem to be rarely found in Taiwanese establishments around here — think Yuanyang Glutinous Rice and a Traditional Glutinous Rice, but we still found ourselves going for the Popcorn Chicken + Braised Pork Rice Bento since Braised Pork Rice is pretty much an icon of Taiwanese cuisine in general. This is yet one of those variants where the meat comes with both leaner cuts and fatty cuts that are more balanced — the sauce does create a light savoury note that gives moisture to the short-grain pearl rice beneath, but we would appreciate more of that braised sauce to go around with the entire portion of rice. The popcorn chicken were aptly-sized; seasoned with the standard salt, pepper and chili powder that usually comes with Taiwanese chicken cutlets — pretty addictive on their own and would make a great bar bite as an ala-carte item to share with EK Gourmet’s selection of alcoholic beverages. Otherwise, the preserved vegetables do give quite a good crunch and tang to take away much of the heaviness of the proteins and carbs in the bowl; the braised egg was nothing much to shout about being one that features a fully-cooked yolk within.

Still in search of the Braised Pork Rice that would give Eat Three Bowls a run for their money, and the honest opinion of the one from The Voice is that it isn’t quite that rendition that features melt-in-the-mouth braised pork that brings it close to that — though that being said, its renditions to come pretty close to a decent one served at other establishments in other neighbourhoods. Would say that they are worth checking out for those residing around the Beauty World area — not the most convenient location even for those near the MRT station, but still a spot that serves pretty decent Taiwanese fare that I wouldn’t mind going for if I am craving for one around the area.
