Both Ye Shang Hai & Ye Lai Xiang are in the business of peddling tasty, tantalizing Teochew porridge, they’re in the same approximate post code, and they’ve even got similar names! So of course, comparisons will be drawn, and blood will be shed-yeah, maybe not the blood part.

I’m just gonna come out right now and say it: Ye Lai Xiang’s dishes are better. The texture of Ye Shanghai’s meatballs were a bit odd and a bit too loose, and there was less flavor in those balls. The braised intestines were a touch too salty, and the pig liver was overcooked. However, the curry vegetables were insanely indulgent and seriously sumptuous, and of course, one can never go wrong with chye poh omelette.

But the one department that Ye Shanghai has Ye Lai Xiang utterly vanquished was in the wallet department. You see this spread of six dishes with two bowls of porridge right here? Ten bucks. That’s right, one red Yusof Ishak covered the cost of this dinner. I’m gonna be honest here, I did a double take when the cashier told me the price of the meal. Thrice.

So, the final verdict on Ye Shanghai! Good? Eh, a little debatable but I’m going with a yes. Cheap? Oh hell yeah.


PRICE: $14 incl. of 2 bowls of porridge, 1 bowl of rice
Good enough for two adults

WAITING TIME: 2nd in queue when we reached at 9pm on a Tuesday. Ordered and collected around less than 5 minutes later.

Every dish we ordered was good. Nothing to complain.

Ye Shang Hai 夜上海潮州粥 is located in a coffee shop with a couple of other stalls that sell individually portioned hawker food. Think fish noodles, ban mian, prawn mee, etc. So there are options for everyone should you be in a large group. But the general rule of thumb is - the more the merrier, so I'd hope everyone in the group would want to order from Ye Shang Hai to maximize the variety of dishes.

Simple comfort food. I always go for more vegetables, 'cos that's how I roll. Meats like the duck or fish bump up the price of your meal real quick, & they don't satisfy me that much so I usually give them a miss.

This portion pictured here was nice for a duo of gluttons; good variety, piping hot porridge, & not stuffed to the brim. $15 for 2 pax. More expensive than your average plate of mixed vege rice, but I'd gladly pay for the variety.

reasonable priced comfort food. Changed location from where they used to be but standard remains.. This table that feed 4 pax only cost less than $30.. 👍🏻👍🏻


If you want a variety of dishes at a low cost, Ye Shang Hai is the place to go! This place has always been a family favorite (esp my brother’s) and we always call it “Taxi Porridge” because a lot of taxi drivers come here to eat! It’s a super shiok place for meals at any time of the day but late night is definitely the best time 👍🏻👍🏻

We ordered chai po omelette, braised bork belly, sesame chicken, braised duck, spinach, chap chye and stewed tow kee. All were good and flavourful! Best chap was from the braised pork 😋
