Aside from your usual chicken curry or nasi lemak options at Yishun Park FC, you also can find Hideki, which is a Japanese-fusion stall selling aburi (which translates to 'seared' from Japanese) bowls.

Run by young hawkers, the trendy menu features options like aburi chicken, pork belly and salmon rice bowls. You can even customise your own bowl, such as having soba noodles or salad with your proteins. A plus point? They even allow you to choose a sauce for free!

Since this was during the no-dining-out phase, I dabao-ed their ready-made option, which was the aburi pork belly don ($7).

It came with sushi rice topped with a handful of seared pork belly that practically covered most of the bowl, corn, seaweed flakes and an onsen egg. For $7, I thought there was a pretty generous amount of ingredients.

For the sauce, I went with truffle shoyu, which were drizzled onto the rice.

I liked how the pork belly pieces were sizeable and quite thick, which made the $7 bowl pretty value-for-money. Sadly, as this was a takeaway, I couldn't enjoy the seared pork belly fresh, and it was a tad dry by the time I could take a bite. The chunky meat was still tender though, and I could taste the seared smokiness.

It seemed like the truffle shoyu sauce I opted for was already added onto the rice, and while I could oh so slightly make out a hint of truffle flavour, I would have loved for it to be much stronger. Having the sauce packed separately would have been more ideal, too.

Unfortunately, the onsen egg had already somehow burst its yolk when I got to it, so I couldn't enjoy that oozy goodness. But, the egg was still a nice creamy addition to the dish. The topping of corn was also delightfully juicy and crunchy. 

While it was a delicious meal, the pork belly could have been juicier, and the sauce more boldly flavoured. But, I'm sure having my meal fresh at the hawker centre would have been much better, and if I am ever around the area, I would love to give their other items a shot!
