The Place Located at Golden Mile Food Centre along Beach Road, Braise (卤之家) is at level 1 of the hawker centre. The stall opened last year to much fanfare, and we have been trying to find a time to visit after read positive reviews.
The Food Braise serves braised pork items including my favourite Braised Pork Rice (卤肉饭)! Here’s the thing, Braise also dishes out other braised pork items including Braised Pork Shank, Pork Belly, Pork Rib and Pork Cheek!
Of course, since I am here for the first time, therefore the decision is simple, am going with the Braised Belly Rice Set (S$5). All set orders comes with Ajitsuke Tamago, Tofu, Tau Pok, Mushrooms, Black Fungus and Vegetables. Yes, will have the Braised Pork Rice when I return next, though I am keen to bite into the chunkier meats and that delicious layer of pork fat!
The meats are very well seasoned overnight as we were told, and the tender meats made this such a joy to eat! The generous pour of the braised sauce, or best referred to as zup, on the rice is dope, and you might find yourself finishing all the rice even against your strongest will – like me!
Needless to say, the runny Ajitsuke Tamago is a great addition to the rice bowl. The rest of the sides completes the meal here at Braise. You can even order add-ons if there’s any meats or sides you like.
Additional cut of meats (Shank, Belly, Rib or Cheeks) costs between S$2 to S$3 per serving, whereas the sides are from S$1 onwards. Rather reasonable pricing, since it is at a hawker centre after all.
There has been more stalls and restaurants opening in the past year specialising in braised meats and Taiwanese food, which frankly is something I very much enjoy. If you are here, just walk across the hawker centre on the same floor, and you will find a Taiwanese stall Wen Li Taiwanese Food. Worth a try too!
Rants Be prepared to join the long queue, or you can head here just 10-15 minutes before it opens.
Will I Return Again? A resounding yes. Back to try the Braised Pork Rice for sure!
