I learnt about this eatery from a Channel 8 show hosted by Bryan Wong and I thought it had been closed at first when I checked about it on the Internet. However, when I checked again, I found that the eatery is still available. Hence, I decided to make a tour to there for a meal.The boat porridge is the first dish I had for my meal.

The boat porridge is the first dish I had for my meal. It is served garnished with deep-fried wanton skins and raw lettuce. There are fish, cured cuttlefish, jellyfish and peanuts in the porridge. This is the first time I had jellyfish in porridge. The porridge is not so gritty. It is thick and smooth but a bit bland. Luckily, there is soy sauce provided for me to enhance the porridge's taste. The fish, jellyfish and cured cuttlefish are tender. The strips of jellyfish are crunchy. The pieces of cured cuttlefish are smooth and chewy. The peanuts are hard and crunchy. However, I find the ingredients in the porridge a bit too little. The deep-fried wanton skins are golden brown. They appear to be hard but after being dipped in the porridge for a while, they are soggy. The pieces of raw lettuce are crunchy but a bit unfresh.

The durian chee cheong fun is the next and last dish I had after the porridge. It is one of the creative dishes I ever had. I had seen pancakes and cream puffs containing durian filling but I had never seen chee cheong fun with durian filling. The chee cheong fun is served in small pieces topped with grounded peanuts. The sheer chee cheong fun is white and as smooth as silk. The creamy durian filling is bittersweet. The grounded peanuts that make the dish appealing are hard and gritty so they add another texture to the dish. They are sweet too. That helps to balance the bitterness of the durian filling when the chee cheong fun is eaten with the grounded peanuts.


The taste of the chee cheong fun is superb but the porridge in my opinion needs improvement. The eatery also offers other dishes such as tangyuan and fried rice. I hope to come there the next time for better dishes.
