Lu Gang Xiao Zhen is managed by The Asian Kitchen group, offering various Taiwanese dishes for passersby who may be allured by the tantalising aroma coming out from the restaurant. There are currently two branches: one in ION Orchard, and another in Nex.T.A.K. Pork Belly
- The best item of the day was the side dish which I ate as an appetiser. Served hot, the pork belly wasn't only crispy on the edges, but also lipsmackingly juicy and tender. Dipped into the vinegar with minced garlic, it made me crave for more even after I left the restaurant. Anyway, T.A.K. stands for The Asian Kitchen.Cereal Fried Rice
- I'm a big fan of fried rice and I love everything that comes with cereal oats. Frankly speaking, the fried rice wasn't particularly fluffy, even though it was pretty aromatic. The cereal oats were light and crispy without being overly sweet, but it was a pity that there were only crab sticks as the source of protein.Moonlight Hor Fun
- The dish is named so because of the raw egg put on top of the fried hor fun
(Chinese flat rice noodle). Overall, it had quite an appetising smoky aroma. Accompanied by a few prawns and fish slices, the rice noodle was cooked with the right amount of dark soy sauce and was nicely chewy.Mango Pudding
- The mango pudding was, sad to say, passable. Served lukewarm, it had an overly soft texture. Besides that, it didn't really taste like mango pudding. It was more like cream pudding with an insufficient hint of mango flavour.
It was a pity that an otherwise good meal had to end with such a disappointing dessert item. Nevertheless, I'd love to dissect more of the Taiwanese street food offered.
