I fancy myself the pork fat king - it's only a matter of time before I'm fitted with my coffin-shaped crown. However, even I sat blinking, dumbfounded at the inch-thick layer of fat on the pork at Sit-Fun. When later research suggested they offer "lighter versions of Taiwanese delicacies" I broke out in laughter. Surely they must be joking. The first bite was delicious but I soon felt like I was eating all icing and no cake. The King admits to leaving a lot of the fat in the bottom of the bowl.
Sit-Fun offers dishes based on what the chef finds in the markets that morning, thus ensuring a fresh, seasonal rotation. There isn't a menu - you take a look at the dishes propped up in case near the front door and order prior to sitting down. It makes everything so much more efficient. Surprisingly, the dish I enjoyed most was this one - green beans, eggplant and red peppers sauteed with generous amounts of garlic. I couldn't stop eating this, I think I ate most of it.
It's on a small alley off of Yong Kang St, pictured below, which is stocked full of shops and restaurants and is a fun place for a walk around.
