- Century egg and pork porridge, $3

My born-in-Hong Kong friend specially brought me here to try the porridge. According to her, the porridge here is the closest to the ones she has tasted in Hong Kong. She can tell whether the porridge here was cooked according to the traditional method or the "short-cut" method, where people grind or break the rice first, so that the porridge can be cooked softer in a shorter time. She prefers the traditional way (although it takes much longer), as you can still taste each full grain of rice within the porridge.

Haha, she told me to specifically tell the uncle (the chef) the order instead of his wife who will only deliver your order to you and collect the money. Apparently they got into some argument before when orders were mixed up, so now the onus is on the uncle to take orders so he cannot blame his wife if anything goes wrong...


The porridge was indeed tasty. I found it to be a tad watery, but the amount of ingredients given was plentiful and the pork liver was cooked till just right.

While we were tucking into our meal, a stranger next to us, who was also eating the porridge, commented that the stall owner personally goes to the Chinatown market every morning at 4 am to get his daily fresh produce.
