Woo Ricebox - Taiwanese Food that Reignites Memories of Taiwan

Originating from Taitung, Taiwan, Woo Ricebox serves up a variety of Ricebox and Taiwanese snacks. Bringing to us the authentic Taiwanese taste, Woo Rice box currently has two outlets in Singapore – one at Jurong Point and the other at Ocean Financial Centre.

Decided to have a go at the Ocean Financial Centre outlet for lunch the other day. This outlet serves mainly the working crowds in the CBD hence service is rather fast and orders are usually packed for takeaway or in boxes for convenience.

If you’re keen for something light, the new Oyster/Shredded Chicken Mee Sua ($4.90/$3.90) and the Crispy Wrap ($3.90) would be good choices. The Mee Sua was rather average and can be perked up by adding more vinegar and pepper. On the other hand, the Crispy Wrap was done just right. The batter was crisp even after some time and the mix of meat and veges gave the wrao a good flavor.

The star dishes would probably be either the Braised Pork Belly Ricebox ($8.90) or the Spicy Drumstick Rice Box ($8.90). The Braised Pork Belly brings memories back while having the ones in Taiwan. Although the feel wasn’t there, the tummy simply enjoyed the finely braised ingredients. 

See the chicken in the middle ? The Chicken Drumstick is served whole, which forces you to use your hands to grab that delicious crispy drum and tear it open with a bite. 

Most of Woo Ricebox ingredients are specially imported from Taiwan – the grains, marinades, to give these dishes an authentic flavor.

Not contented and itching for a snack? Woo Ricebox also sells tidbit dishes like the Salt & Pepper Popcorn Chicken ($3.90), Fried Sweet Potato ($3.50) and Battered Mushrooms. Loved the fried sweet potatoes and the battered mushrooms.

Overall review: shauneeie3.5hands. You don’t have to fly to Taiwan to get your riceboxes now. Tired of your usual lunch? Woo Ricebox at OFC will certainly be something different.
