Craving for porridge? Have you visited the Taiwan Porridge place that has been in business for more than 38 years? Oasis Taiwan Porridge is previoulsy located next to our Indoor Stadium in Kallang opposite the old National Stadium. They have relocated to Toa Payoh Town Park that is opposite the HDB hub and also next to Toa Payoh Swimming Complex.

 A homely taste of velvety porridge with sweet potato included. Best that its free flow and a big warm pot of it was kept by the side table for you to refill.

The Prawn Roll looks abit dry here rather than the glossy appearance but we were all glad that it was not greasy. The fillings were hot and we took caution when sinking our teeth down into it.

 "Chye Poh" egg aka Preserved Raddish comes in a beautiful round shape and was yummy. It was not salty and even taste as good alone without the porridge. Texture was crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. Wow!

Chye Poh Omelette - $10

This was one of the signature Teochew dishes that we had ordered. Braised duck with Tau Kwa was soaked in sweet savoury braised sauce. I will recommend the dish as the meat was not too "old", easily chew and succulent. Every piece was well immersed in the "Lor Chap" aka Braised Sauce and just goes very well on the plate.

Braised Duck with Tau Kwa - $16 (Small)

If you eat Pig's Intestine, you will definitely like this as these braised intestine was well handled and does not have any gamy taste. In fact the combination of salted vegetable and intestine had executed well.

Braised Pig Intestine with Salted Vegetable - $9 (Small)

Forget about the calories, the stew pork is definitely awesome. With distinctive layers of the pork that melts in your mouth. Biting on them is effortless with such fork tender meat and the best thing was that it was not greasy at all.

 If you are planning for a family meal, Oasis Taiwan Porridge will be a good choice. For its simple and no frills meal with nostalgic environment, moreover they have big round tables which is good for families with kids too.

Starting with humble beginnings with 49 Seats (this is how they got their name) at Kreta Ayer Road in 2012 and now they have move to a bigger shop space in Orchard, Centrepoint. 49 Seats are known for their Western Fusion Asian dishes at affrodable pricing.

Interior was casual with a good similar industrial chic look that contains bright hanging lights, metal chair. What caught my attention was the items that was sprayed coated in silver that sticked onto the wall. Totally Creative! Initially I thought they were just the usual props made especially for decorations but as I touched it, I realized they were all recycled items. How interesting with plastic cups, spoons, forks, plates, egg trags and even egg trays.

 Tom Yum Seafood pasta is rated as A spicy lover must try. Looks like this dish is highly raved because of its uniqueness. The Tom Yum was served cream base with seafood like mussels and prawns. It packed a good punch of sweetness, sourness and spiciness in every mouthful of spaghetti. This is in fact semi spicy and the bestseller here.

Tom Yum Seafood - $14.90

 Another recommendation on its menu will be their Seafood Marinara and a good alternative if you are not keen in spicy Tom Yum. Pasta is pretty tasty with mussels and prawns paired with tomato sauce.

Adding $4.90 to my pasta for set of additional soup of the day and 1 soft drinks. I had the Cream of Brocoli with garlic bread by the side of the double layer bowl. The soup was not quite hot, however still able to warm up the tummy.

The environment did leave a good impression. As we were only there for pasta, we have not tried out the other western food dishes. It will be good to be back again.

If not for the recommendation by my friend, I would never have discovered such place for braised duck and fish soup. Well, what a combination!

Although there are so many eateries in Geylang, be surprised that the coffee shop environment is actually crowded by office workers from nearby. Luckily we were there earlier and did not have to worry about seating. After which, we went up to the counter and order our food.

 We choose our braised platter based on the items we like. We had braised duck, pork trotters, eggs, intestines, Tau Gua and Tau Pok. The duck meat was braised till so tender that we almost mistaken the meat as pork. However, we love the braised meat over here including the intestine as they were well handled and tasty.

Good to go with rice or porridge as it might be very salty and oily to consume alone.

Was rather please to have a bowl of lukewarm porridge with braised gravy and chunks of braised duck meat. The style of the porridge had the kind of homely taste which you normally wont find it from usual hawker stalls ~ Teochew Grandma Style Dish.

The other dishes not to let your stomach go empty with will be their fish soup. They provide fresh sliced pieces of fish in clear soup. Dish was simple and straight forward with preserved greens, cabbages and seaweed. Plain light meal but broth was tasty and flavorful.

 I like the nostalgic taste of food especially the braised duck. Since operating hours of Hong Qin Fish & Duck Porridge is till mid noon on the weekdays (Batang Fish sold out fast), it will be more likely that we will be visiting them in the weekend instead.

Nurul Delight OK Nov 08, 2017

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/11/nuruls-delight.html

Looks like we have another option here for Malay Food that is popular among the district over here. To my surprise, I realized the long queue while we were lining up to purchase our breakfast dishes.

Besides the usual dishes, they are also selling Kueh ranging from $1 to $1.20. We bought the Ondeh Ondeh and felt it was nothing out of the ordinary. The fillings did not have the oozing feel once you bite on it and in fact the "skin" was rather thick and texture was not to our liking.

Ondeh Ondeh Kueh - $1.20

Mee Rebus came in generous portion and was strong in prawn taste. It is topped with condiments like fried shallots and coriander. We told them to remove green chilli.

Mee Rebus - $2.50

If you realize, their Mee rebus, Mee Siam were all served in bowls instead of the usual plate we seen in most plates. Squeeze some lime juice over and mix the tangy gravy with sambal chilli together and savour them up.

Mee Siam - $2.50

At the price of the Mee Soto, I will say its value worth for money as big chunks of chicken was given and gave me a filling stomach over the breakfast. We topped up the original $2.50 portion with $0.50 for a piece of bagedil. Chicken soup was murky and noodles were soft enough.

The reason why people faithfully queue for the Nurul's delight is perhaps this plate of fragrant Nasi Lemak that cost $2.50. The Nasi Lemak is upgraded with chicken nuggets as well as bagedil. The sambal chilli is commendable as it smells good in its smoky, sweet-spicy goodness.

With inflation, most of such dishes are already priced at $3 as the minimum but still in the neighborhood of Bukit Batok, we are lucky to have found such pocket friendly dishes.

Out of all food ordered, it generally explained what the crowd is there for. I will strongly recommend to try their Nasi Lemak as priority even though I am not a fan of rice.
