Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice (金峰魯肉飯), Taipei (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Friday, March 29, 2013

Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice (金峰魯肉飯) was one of the popular places that locals and tourist have braised pork rice. Highly acclaimed by various bloggers, I decided to give this restaurant a try.
Thinking that we could beat the lunch crowd on a Sunday morning, we arrived at 11am to have an early lunch. But, there was already a snake-like line outside the restaurant. To add to the challenge, there was a drizzle while we queued for at least 45 minutes without an umbrella. At around noon, we finally ordered a couple of dishes and waited for another 15-20mins for a table. We waited excitedly as we hoped that the food would taste as good as it was claimed to be.

However, the food was generally okay, normal to be exact. I wished that it could be better for the fact that we queued about an hour before being served with their highly acclaimed food. Perhaps, it was more suited for the local taste while for tourists like us may or may not like it.

The meal was reasonably affordable but I forgot to take down the cost of the meal.

Braised Minced Meat Noodles (肉焿面) looked different but was actually the same as the Braised Minced Meat Rice. Instead of having it with rice, I had it with noodles for a change. Having the rice was equivalent to having it with noodles. Though it looked very simple, the braised minced meat and its sauce was subtle yet fragrant. The spices in the sauce blended very well very nicely with the noodles and made the dish delicious. I could imagine how the braised minced meat would be equally delicious with rice. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Minced Meat Ball Soup (肉羹汤) was served with glass vermicelli, minced meat balls, bamboo shoot strips, bean spouts, and Chinese coriander. The meat soup was fragrant, rich in pork broth. The noodles were cooked perfectly and firm to the bite. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Braised Eggs (卤蛋) were great and well-braised. It was so well-braised that the spices in the sauce was subtle yet fragrant. A great complement to eat it with rice. (Food rating: 3.5/5)
