Mr Lorbak at Hougang

William Liou, 31, the owner, first started it in a coffee shop in early 2017 at Bedok North before moving to Ubi Avenue 1. He subsequently started another stall at Hougang Street 21. He has also recently started House of Happiness, a stall in a coffee shop along Bedok Road serving claypot rice. Willaim used to be a Group General Manager of a restaurant and he has a diploma from SHATEC. He was inspired by his mother as she used to run a rojak stall in Tampines. He is using a recipe from his mother. 

We went to the stall at Hougang for dinner. This stall is not just selling Lor Bak Rice ($4.50), also known as Braised Soya Sauce Pork Rice but also Braised Pig's Trotter ($7.00), Braised Chicken Wing Rice ($4.50), Minced Pork Porridge ($3.50), Minced Pork Pau ($2.50), Oyster Vegetable ($1.50) and Side Dish Combo ($2.00) consisting braised mushroom, tau pok, braised peanuts and preserved vegetable. We decided to go with Braised Chicken Wings Rice and Braised Soya Sauce Pork Rice together with a Side Dish Combo. The friendly auntie that took my order, asked, "Do you want Oyster Vegetable? the vegetable is very nice today." And, She said, "I do not have enough black fungus so I will be giving you more pieces of braised mushroom."

The Braised Chicken Wing Rice consists of 2 pieces of chicken wings, braised mushroom, braised egg, and black fungus placed on a pile of white rice drizzled with braising sauce. My dining companion, said, "It is not as flavorful as its look."


The Braised Pork Rice consists of a piece of braised meat that was cut in a few piece, a hard-boiled egg, braised mushroom, and black fungus. My dining companion said, "This is better than the braised chicken wings." I have tried when the stall was manned by William at Ubi Avenue. Somehow, it was much better than. 


The only item that I liked of the Side Dish Combo was the braised mushroom, the rest tasted just mediocre. 


Though not the best, this simple taste is homely and comforting.
