Phone+65 9739 8224
Operating HoursDaily: 11:00 AM – 9:30 PM

Isshin Machi, which looks at first glance like Japanese for ‘one heart one village’, but is actually a Taiwanese restaurant with a decidedly Taiwanese slant.

A 70-seat area is elegantly furnished in wood, and flanking the television screens are white-and-blue mural paintings of the landmarks of Taiwan, including the Jiemei Lakes in Alishan, Taiwan.

An entire braised egg sat pertly atop a bowl of fat and lean slices of braised pork, pickled vegetables, sliced cucumber and the two chilis.

Also available is the popular Taiwanese Braised Beef Noodles, which can also be substituted with Tainan Guan Miao Noodles, which have a similar texture. Isshin Machi is on East Coast Road.

Key Differentiators

  • Authentic Taiwanese Cuisine
  • 70-seating capacity
  • Nice interior

Customer Testimonial

Very satisfying Taiwanese food served in cozy ambiance at affordable price. We enjoyed everything so much that we kept saying “Very good, very nice” after each piece. It’s really good. Tasty and not so heavy thanks to minimal seasoning. They have some “vinegar” fruit drinks that also taste nice and may help with digestion – plum is my favourite.

Phone+65 6702 1098
Operating HoursDaily: 11:30AM–8:30PM

5 Little Bears is a restaurant in the basement of Paya Lebar Square, a shopping mall in the eastern part of Singapore. It’s a Taiwanese chain restaurant run by a man who named it after his five children. During lunchtime, it’s a good place to get dinner for takeaway.

A delicious Taiwanese meal – with Beef Noodles, the X-Large Chicken Chop, and Crispy Sweet Potato among many other street snacks. Can’t beat Braised Pork Rice, and this was just the right mix of meat and fat flavoured by the spiced sauce.

Key Differentiators

  • Delicious street snacks
  • Well-rounded dishes
  • Best takeaway lunches

Customer Testimonial

was attracted by the aroma of the egg rolls and can not resist the temptation to find out more. It was a pleasant surprise to find out this hidden gem in Plaza Singapura with yummy Taiwanese snacks and bought myself a box of the freshly baked egg rolls to try. =)

Address462 Crawford Ln, #01-61, Singapore 190462
Phone+65 9154 8191

You can visit Eat 3 Bowls at Crawford Lane. It has a neon Taiwanese drama-style classroom – or at the new outlet in a multi-colour train station at Pasir Panjang Road. The bowls – Braised Pork Rice, Chicken Rice and Oyster Intestine Mee Sua – are the titular three bowls the restaurants are named after.

Key Differentiators

  • Bubble tea
  • Homestyle Taiwanese comfort food
  • Served at this straightforward eatery

Customer Testimonial

Great food especially the chicken rice and braised pork rice. The taste was superb and definitely worth the hype. The queue will be quite long during meal period as they have quite limited seating capacity. Be sure to go there before or after meal period. The signature 3 bowl combo is 13 bucks. But the combo bowl is smaller portion as compared to the ala karte portion. So do take that in consideration. Definitely will come back again!

CLosed on Thursdays

Str Tao Taiwan Cuisine: Good food in Jurong East, Singapore that has a menu of more than 30 items available, consisting of mains and street foods.

The restaurant serves up Taiwanese sweet and savoury favourites, including Taiwan Mee Sua; Street Bombing Chicken Cutlet; four different types of Taiwan scallion pancakes, including Egg with Cheese and Cheese with Pork Floss; as well as xiao chi (nibbles) such as XXL Crispy Fried Cuttlefish and Fried Enoki Mushroom.

The pork belly chunks are marinated with light herbal infusions and are simply delicious. We also recommend the Taiwan Braised Beef Ramen Soup. This is an average bowl of noodles topped with a lot of beef shank and vegetables, but the scent is really impressive.

Key Differentiators

  • Taiwanese favorites
  • Extensive menu
  • Generous servings

Customer Testimonial

Not super cheap and a bit far but the portion is great n quality is REALLY GOOD. Worth the walk. Mee sua, pork intestines, cutlet was all well done.

You might start to wonder about your allegiance to Din Tai Fung, after you eat at Feng Food in Yishun and get the Fried Rice with Specialty Marinated Pork Chop, which is essentially the same dish as Din Tai Fung’s — but without the wok hei.

Try their Shrimp and Pork Wontons with Fiery Chilli Oil (TWD$80, around RM25), think Taiwan in the mouth. The minced pork and shrimp stuffing is just right, with or without the spicy and tangy sauce.

Key Differentiators

  • Taste of Taiwan
  • Balance flavors
  • Wonton specials

Customer Testimonial

Stopped by for a quick lunch in Yishun. I’m not familiar with the area but decided to give Feng Food a try. The food was great! They have varieties of noodles soup. The egg fried rice and frid pork chop was a marvelous combo, definitely will go back for more. The beef noodle soup was great as well. Savory and thick broth paired with soft beef chunks (real big chunks). Left the restaurant with a full tummy and happy mood

Abundance, a Taiwanese restaurant-cafe in an HDB estate a stone’s throw from the Redhill MRT station, has been open for only a month, but has already made waves on social media for its wide array of bao, including the Gua Bao, a slab of fatty pork belly layered with roasted peanuts and pickled vegetables.

Additional food highlights include Niu Yolk Fried Rice (rice cooked in beef fat and topped with slices of short rib and a slimy onsen egg) and Peanut Ice Cream Roll, a popular Taiwanese street food, which is perfect for nostalgic trips back to Jiufen’s streets.

Key Differentiators

  • Classic Taiwanese street foods
  • Accessible location
  • Made headlines on social media

Customer Testimonial

Friendly service, excellent food! We ordered the beef fried rice, crispy chicken bun, noodle dumplings, and peanut ice cream. Everything was so good! Also recommend the chrysanthemum cocktail, has a refreshing flavour.

This is the Monki Cafe at Holland Drive. What makes it Instagrammable is the bright yellow seats and walls. They serve Taiwanese food, and also has desserts.

If the rest of us are stuck for choice, then your visit to Caffe Viennese will leave you spoilt for sweets – the snowflake dessert is available in at least half a dozen different flavours: matcha azuki, chocolate banana, mango, and more. And if you can’t decide, the Double Flavour Snowflake Dessert offers you both.

Key Differentiators

  • Chinese | English
  • Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner
  • Shaved Ice / Teas

Customer Testimonial

Yummy Taiwanese food located at a quaint corner in Star Vista. The menu is largely in Chinese with no picture for illustration. Had a bit of difficulty reading the menu but I suppose you can always ask the waiters there for recommendations.

The food is served by Taiwanese, I suppose is one of the more authentic ones you can find in town. The food prices is relatively steep, but it still worth your penny because of its large serving.

Ordered braised pork noodle and mee sua. Both dishes were equally yummy. The braised pork is not to sweet not fatty, but I suppose it will be better if they were to add more greens.The Taiwanese milk tea is at the more creamy side, but still can taste the fragrance from the tea.

All in all, good place to visit to satisfy your Taiwanese food craving. (;

Taiwan Lu Rou Noodles from the Typhoon Cafe. Springy noodles go with the soft chunks of pork – the two textures work well. Egg Fried Rice with Panko Canadian Pork Chop with Tonkatsu sauce. Zhng’d up fried rice, with a pinkish pork chop.

This coarse, battered pork is so full-flavoured. Snap a picture of your Instagram-worthy sweets with the Hell Valley Chocolate Volcano, which has hot cocoa lava.

Key Differentiators

  • Taste of Taiwan
  • Artisan fruit teas, bubble milk teas
  • Intricately made desserts

Customer Testimonial

AMAZING PANCAKES. End of statement. If you want the fluffiest pancakes that just melt in your mouth, this is the place to go to. The sizes of the pancakes are quite large. Enough for 3 pax per pancake ($17). The small bites we had from this place (chicken fritters, fried mushroom) were delicious too. I recommend visiting a few hours early or after the peak since it’s quite popular. If you want dessert worth the value, please visit here. You won’t regret it.

Fong Sheng Hao is a Taiwanese toast chain with two outlets in Singapore, one at NEX and one at PLQ Mall. It serves a dizzying myriad of Taiwanese toasts. Its bestseller happens to be the Pork, Egg & Cheese. Within a softer puffy bread and toast combination, lies marinated pork loin, a dollop of cheddar cheese and omelette.

Key Differentiators

  • Taiwanese toast
  • Crowd favorite
  • Generous portions

Customer Testimonial

Been wanting to try Fong Sheng Hao 豐盛號 Singapore for the longest time. Finally got to try it today, wished the spicy had more kick instead of sweetness. If you like savoury egg and pork chop with sweet bread, then this is recommended.

My only issue with them is that the tea for the set option is only available cold which is not ideal for breakfast. However I must say the cane sugar they used for the black tea deserves a special mention.

One of the best places to get a cheap meal in town is Really Something, a hawker stall in Chinatown Complex Food Centre selling Taiwanese food. You can get braised pork rice set (lu rou fan) for as little as $3. Their Shrimp Egg Fried Rice is a steal (not exactly the same as Din Tai Fung’s, but almost).

Key Differentiators

  • Rich tastes
  • Famous hawker stall
  • Affordable dishes

Customer Testimonial

Excellent Taiwanese food stall in the middle of chinatown. It is REALLY SOMETHING. The chef will cook the portions individually as you ordered them. Even though this will take longer when it comes to the ordering and waiting, it is worth the waiting time. The chicken cutlet is on the dryer side and I was hoping it would be more juicy. The egg fried rice is excellently cooked. Love the rice.

Let me describe the most popular street food in Taiwan: deep-fried chicken covered with honey and spices. Honey glazed crispy chicken can be found in Singapore in a number of Taiwanese restaurants, one of which is 8 Degree Taiwanese Bistro.

What makes Taiwanese food in Singapore so popular?

One reason why I return to Taiwanese food, time and again, in Singapore – besides the fact that its signature pork buns (baokua) or sweet, braised pork belly (luorou) can be quite the salivary feat – is the delicious crunchy nuggets. And it doesn’t hurt that the secret ingredient is superior soy sauce.

Fried chicken cutlet, or ji pai, is a Taiwanese street food. The yummy one in this picture can be found at many Taiwanese restaurants in Singapore, such as 8 Degree Taiwanese Bistro and Eat 3 Bowls.

Superior soy sauce is considered the best soy sauce. It’s commonly used in Taiwanese cooking because it is dark and full-bodied with a complex depth of flavour. It is the secret ingredient to many dishes, such as braised pork belly and Taiwanese sausage. Without it, the flavour of the dish would just not be the same.
