5 Pao Fan to try in Singapore!

For those of you who don't know what is pao fan. Pao fan or 泡饭 is rice submerged in a seafood broth. The rice is cooked separately from the seafood broth so this is unlike porridge/congee. People would typically turn to warm and soupy for comfort when the weather is cold and chilly so Pao Fan will be one of the best choices around. 

1) Famous Pao Fan 一泡而红

We checked out the latest food stall by Local Singapore actor Chew Chor Meng. The lobster pao fan looks so tempting. Famous Pao Fan 一泡而红 specializes in Pao fan. We paid $16 each for one bowl of pao fan which came with 1 whole lobster, clam, fried egg floss, and crispy rice puff. Quite worth $16 I feel. The broth however was a little light on the palate and lacking that umami punch. The lobster meat could be more tender as well.

2) T.K Kitchen - Paofan Paradise

Went to T.K Kitchen at Teban Gardens for their Flower Crab Pao fan! The broth was so full of umami! extra delicious when the rice soaked up the delicious seafood broth. They also used egg fried rice instead of white rice so this was extra fragrant and has a hint of wok hei. No wonder this was ⭐⭐⭐ food king good!

3) San Pin Pao Fan (三品泡饭)

My first Pao Fan experience is given to the newly opened San Pin Pao Fan (三品泡饭). Really love the comforting umami taste with every mouthful. We also ordered the luncheon meat and Grilled Beef Fillet. The luncheon meat was done just right and the grilled beef fillet was so tender, even though looking charred.

4) Mun's Seafood Pao Fan

Checked out Mun's Seafood Pao Fan for their Pao Fan!

Ordered their Seafood rice soup with puffed rice. Not much seafood here for $7.50 and the soup although looking very orange wasn’t very rich. This would be a comforting meal on a rainy day but if you're looking for a stronger taste, this is not the one.

Opening Hours: 11am - 3pm, 5.30pm - 7.30pm

5) King of Pao Fan

Finally tried the King of Pao Fan. I ordered the Seafood Paofan with prawns, fried dory fish, clams in their pork bone/prawn head broth which was brimming with rich umami. This was topped with fried egg floss and crispy rice puffs. The seafood was fresh but will be nice if they serve deveined prawns.

I went to the Eunos outlet and this coffee shop is the worst with people occupying the seats just drinking alcohol and there were so few tables inside the coffee shop too. I understand that this may be due to social distancing but how to get a table sia...

They also have another outlet at Cheng Yan Court at Queen Street which is near to Bugis MRT station. I heard that this outlet quite busy and has long queues.
