  • Porridge and Congee

    Another overated food outlet would be Chang Cheng Porridge @ Chinatown. Their porridge's standard has dropped drastically over the years, how I missed those smooth and 'silky' porridge they used to serve a couple of years back.

    Many thanks, Cira!

    I do wonder about the difference between porridge and congee. Chang Cheng does which? I don't eat there often enough to comment on the falling standards. There definitely are stalls that do better porridges.

      No problemo at all. Their sushi is really value for money!

      Actually Chang Cheng does congee. Those served with fried dough sticks. But I am used to calling the place, Change Cheng porridge.

      Yea, a good stall that sells porridge is the one at maxwell food center, nice and smooth, you cant even taste the rice grain.

        Ah, Cira, it's the one that starts and ends early? (but there're at least 3 other stalls selling congee) People would queue and queue for their porridge and yusheng. They're very generous with condiments, I must say.

            Suki is the one who is running Sakura Int'l buffet. Are they related to K-Box? They are always next to some K-Box outlets.

              Not that one, Vernis. It's not bad, though. The one we talked doesn't ever stay open till after 3pm. It's in the middle row (of three in the whole food centre) and almost right in the centre of it all. I think it's a stall or two away from a claypot rice stall that's supposed to be popular as well.

                Yes, Nicole! Thanks! I like how the black and white sesame seeds complement the raw fish It'd be perfect if they serve chilli padi instead.

                  Speaking of the difference between porridge and congee, I think only Singapore calls it porridge? In other countries porridge typically refers to oatmeal (eg. Quaker oats).

                    i thought porridge refers to the thick lumpy type with added ingredients in it. congee is the smooth creamy cantonese style. and there's also 'muay' which is teochew, basically a watery rice gruel.

                      sounds so yummy but timing is not right for me.... if Sat is open, at least i stand a chance to taste the yummy congee!!!

                      actually now i stopped eating congee for awhile after i tried the pork congee at ChompChomp. Generous amt of ingredients (diff parts of pig, me skip the innards). Basically 40% ingredients, 60% congee i find. i quite anti-pork but this is porkfully good when i am pork-sick.

                      Bedok North (Fengshan Mkt, Blk 85)'s famous congee stall's standard also dropped tremenously, not worth the wait anymore. :bore: don't waste time...

                              Add soya bean milk, if you're like me who loves cantonese congee.
