Tiong Shian Porridge is located at a corner coffee shop just a couple of minutes walk from China Town MRT and since it's right at a traffic junction. You will have to endure the carbon output from passing vehicles. Porridge is usually to be taken for breakfast or supper as its taste tends to be more subtle, and yet, wholesome. But not to this Cantonese-style congee which has become more flavorsome with pleasant briny taste by adding other ingredients in it, for instances, red meat, fish slices,
Porridge is usually to be taken for breakfast or supper as its taste tends to be more subtle, and yet, wholesome. But not to this Cantonese-style congee which has become more flavorsome with pleasant briny taste by adding other ingredients in it, for instances, red meat, fish slices, seafood (bite-sized), and/ or eggs, to your preference, that can now be eaten anytime of the day!
This porridge stall opens daily from 8am to 4am! So you can eat this, breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper! I think that their prices are fair and reasonably priced. At this coffee shop which can get really crowded at night, it can also get quite stuffy. Hence I decided to drop by in the morning around 10am. I found an empty table and made
1. Claypot Frog with Ginger $8
2. Porridge with mixed ingredients and century egg $4.90
3. Fried Pig Intestines $6
These pig intestines were fried till they were super crispy like potato chips. I couldn't even tell that they were pig intestines. The make a good crunchy substitute for your porridge.
4. Minced Pork Porridge $4
They were very generous with the minced pork ingredients. The porridge itself was very tasty but if you wanted more oomph! Go for the mixed ingredients porridge! For 3 pax, we ordered 3 bowls of porridge, 2 frog claypot and a side of pig intestines for breakfast. I don't normally choose to eat porridge and this is probably the only time in the whole year I'll eat porridge but the porridge actually tasted good enough for me to want to come back again!
Verdict : 1) Prices were reasonable 2) Their porridges were not heavily seasoned so you could just adjust the taste with additional pepper or light soy sauce to your preferences. 3) Convenient location next to China town mrt 4) no waiting time 5) Simple pleasure for a reasonable price
