Pork Belly Buns - Lee's Taiwanese at The Star Vista

Fiona pointed out that at Lee's Taiwanese, the buns for the Pork Belly Buns Set is steamed, not microwaved, unlike other restaurants, as such the buns are able to retain its moisture even if it was served and left sitting at the table for 10 mins. 

The pork belly are marinated, braised and stewed in stainless steel pots, for about 1-3 hours at the central kitchen, then delivered fresh to the outlets daily, where they are kept in warmers. The pork belly should not be stewed too long as the meat might simply dissolve into the soup broth.

My Food Tasting Notes : The Braised Pork Belly are stewed nicely, are tender to the bite, is served dry without too much gravy, nor too oily, nor too salty, but is infused with the marinate, tastes sweet savoury. The pickled vegetables added to the Pork Belly bun gives a sourly taste whilst the grounded peanuts adds a sweet taste. This trio combination of sweet, sourly, savoury makes the Pork Belly Bun a delight! The bun is steam just right not too dry, but is fresh, moist.
