Abundance Opens In Jalan Besar, The Popular Taiwanese Cafe’s Second Location

19th December 2022

Abundance Taiwanese cafe is now open in Jalan Besar

Abundance - flatlay

Taiwanese eateries have grown in popularity over the last year, but one that stood out was Abundance in Redhill, which has earned a following for their Din Tai Fung-style fried rice, dumplings, Taiwanese gua bao and more. If you’ve never ventured to Redhill to give them a shot, here’s your chance—they’ve just opened a second location in Jalan Besar, right around the corner from Bendemeer MRT Station!

Unlike at their Redhill outlet, this new Jalan Besar shop will predominantly feature indoor seating in the long, narrow space. Running down the length of the cafe is a bar counter with high seats, where it’s hoped that you’ll also find craft beers on tap.

Abundance - Niu Yolk Fried Rice

With ex-Din Tai Fung chefs heading this cafe, you can be sure that the fried rice here is legit. Their signature take on it is Niu Yolk ($19++), where short-grained rice is fried with beef fat, and topped with slices of 24h-slow-cooked beef short rib. These are torched to finish, and it’s all accompanied by a wobbly onsen egg. Of course, they’ve also got Pork Chop Fried Rice ($12.90++) and Prawn Fried Rice ($10.90++), alongside Mentaiko Fish Fried Rice ($13.90++), where house-made mentaiko mayo tops a fillet of tilapia.

Abundance - Gua Bao

For a smaller, but no less filling bite, they’ve got Gua Bao ($7.90++), a popular Taiwanese snack that sees a thick slice of braised pork belly, house-roasted, coarsely ground peanuts, pickles, and coriander in a steamed lotus bun.

Abundance - Crispy Chicken Bun

Equally well-loved by diners is CCB, short for Crispy Chicken Bun ($7.90++), where a whole deep-fried chicken thigh is paired with spicy mango slaw and Thai-style peanut sauce—also in a steamed lotus bun.

Apart from rice and buns, Abundance also has three noodle dishes on the menu, including Dark-Plings Noodles ($9.90++) and Red Hot Chilli Dumplings Noodles ($9.90++), both of which come with three house-made pork and shrimp dumplings. The first is tossed in scallion oil and dark sauce, while the latter is a noodle version of the popular 红油抄手 (hóng yóu chǎo shǒu)—AKA tossed in Sichuan spicy sauce and house-made chilli oil.

Last on the noodle list is Beef Noodles Soup ($16.90++), starring premium beef golden coin that undergoes a three-hour braise in beef oil and more than 20 spices, and a beef bone collagen broth that is simmered for more than 10 hours.

Abundance - Peanut Ice Cream Roll

For dessert, consider the Peanut Ice Cream Roll ($6.90++), yet another quintessentially Taiwanese snack. Here, you’ll get the surprising mix of vanilla ice cream, ground peanuts, and coriander, all rolled up in a thin popiah-like skin.
