I just happened to be there on a rainy day and wanting something comforting like a hot bowl of porridge. There was a queue of few people right there at this stall and it prompted me to give it a try for the first time.Some of the choices available are Century Egg & Lean Meat Congee ($3.50), Pork Congee ($3.50), Meatball Congee ($3.50), Mixed Pork Congee ($4.00), Pig's Liver Congee ($3.50), Chicken Congee ($3.50), Sliced Fish Congee ($3.50), Congee in Boat Style ($5.00) and Mixed Scallop Congee ($5.00). Frog's Leg Congee in claypot are at $7.00 and $12.00.The side dishes for selection are Frog's Leg ($8 and $14) and Pig's Liver ($5 and $8) served with Dried Chilli, Ginger and Onion in claypot. There are Raw Fish at $3, $5 and $8 together with Homemade Beancurd at $3 and Beancurd with Spicy Sauce at $3.I decided to go with Mixed Pork Congee with the smallest serving of Raw Fish.A good portion of porridge garnished with a handful of chopped spring Onion and dried shallots served with a single piece of You Tiao.The You Tiao that came along was still warm with a crispy texture unlike most of the stalls out there that did not bother to make such an effort. The best way to enjoy the You Tiao is to dip it into the congee slightly then eat it. It is as good as dipping it into the coffee, the rather old school way of enjoying it taught by my dearest Grandpa.The Congee is the typical Cantonese style with the rice grains nicely broken up made by a long cooking process.I was delightful to find generous amount of ingredients like slices of liver, small intestine and lean meat in it. This is indeed a value for money bowl of Congee that so hard to come across these days.Though it was the smallest serving Raw Fish but it came with a good amount of sliced fish together with shredded ginger, shredded lettuce, coriander leaf then garnised with dried shallots served along with cut chilli by the side.To start is to mix all the ingredients well with the sesame oil and the sesame seeds to give it the desired flavor.The raw fish was sliced perfectly to give it the nicely thin texture. It tasted delightfully when it was tossed well to coat with the bits of sesame seeds and dash of sesame oil. The taste was further enhanced by squeezing then mixing in the lime.It tasted even better when it was eaten with bits of shredded ginger and shredded lettuce with the coriander leaf.I dare say this is the hidden gem right at this Food Centre. Simple fare but served with passion to ensure the delivery of best quality coupled with fresh ingredients.I know i will definitely be back to try the others on their menu. continue reading
My all-time favourite porridge in Kovan hawker centre, i love their lean meat with century egg with their you tiao, the porridge is full of ingredients and very fresh you tiao, you can prefer it to be cut or whole you tiao, you can add an egg 50cents more to your porridge, to me , original taste is fragrant enough, their porridge is cooked just right, with full of fresh ingredients, we love it very much, cheap and nice quality, you can also opt for their other porridge , just as good. Quality of this porridge is good which i can't get it elsewhere, you tiao seem to be handmade themselves, very addictive and fresh too. highly recommended for porridge lovers. continue reading
The congee here differentiates itself from others mostly due to the addition of one whole you tiao to go with your bowl of porridge. I love it that their you tiao is freshly fried (yet not too oily) and thus very crispy. They will cut it up for you upon your request. Really lovely to go along with your congee.The congee itself is smooth and tasty and the amounts of pork and century egg given is substantial as well. Whenever I'm at this market and not overly famished, I'll definitely order this!- Pork and century egg congee continue reading
This porridge store that had opened for quite a while in this hawker centre near heartlandmall is one of my dinner dapao place.They offer different types of porridge from the usual century egg porridge, to pig organs to frog leg to choose from. I love that they give you youtiao where you ask them to cut it to pieces or by your preference, bite the youtiao as you savour the taste of the porridge. The porridge is really smooth. continue reading
Has the congee standard increase or my expectations isn't high? Since when it started the trend of serving 1 stick of you tiao with congee? Seems like it available for almost any kind of congee u ordered.Fried you tiao with congee seems very hong kong style as i remembered having it in HK many years back. I'm a century egg porridge person but i decided to try the fish congee out.Congee is smooth and thick, crispy you tiao being dipped in the thick congee is yummy! as the you tiao is crispy, it won't turn soggy so fast. I would prefer shredded ginger in my fish congee and it would somehow or rather remove the fishy smell and lower risk of stomach wind. continue reading
