In a place otherwise tucked away, this place would have been previously out of sight. It is in the basement walkway of the Ocean Financial Centre, next to Raffles Place MRT.
But once you get to the walkway, you won't be able to miss this place. The long snaking queues by 11:30am on work days are the tell tale.
Woo Ricebox, is one of Taiwan’s most popular chains for rice boxes 悟饕池上饭包 with more than 70 years of history. And this is its first outlet in South-East Asia.
We braved it one day, made it a point to arrive slightly earlier than the usual crowd.
At one glance on the board, without hesitation, I ordered the "Soy Braised Pork Belly, Egg And Beancurd with Rice". Just look how perfect everything falls and fits together in this paper rice box.
But everyone seem to be ordering the huge fried chicken thigh... I pointed to one these and said "one of those please." This is the Spicy Drumstick ($5), which costs almost as much as my rice box! But it was well worth it! Crispy with a light batter, succulent and full of asian flavour inside...
