When we talk about porridge we think the bland old dish that we eat for warmth and when we are not feeling well. Well thats not the case for this porridge found at Veerasamy Road which to my surprise it not boring at all.
I had the porridge with pork and egg and I have to say the taste and texture was amazing. The porridge was hot and taste absolutely heavenly with pork and egg to make it into congee. Match made in heaven. And the textures from the fried bread, meat, chopped spring onions, tangchye and fragrant fried shallots was just right. My recommended place to go visit.

Pro Tip: You can add amazing fried chicken from the store next door at the same food center with your porridge to make it a sinful combo.

Heed Tastemaker Michelle Kayla Tey's advice and come here early to snag a bowl of silky porridge, as this humble dish commands a long queue and sells out just after lunch time (or earlier, if it's a rainy day). Go for the crowd favourite Pork Porridge (from $2.50) that comes with a generous portion of minced meat, liver, chopped onions, tung choy (salted vegetable), fried shallots and a dough fritter (you tiao). Tastemaker Vanessa Kou describes the thick, smooth and exceedingly satisfying porridge to be surprisingly flavourful on its own, and also recommends adding an egg ($0.50) to stir in and further enhance the taste. Pro tip: Want to beat the queue? Call ahead and order to take away your porridge!
Avg Price: $5 per person

Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner; Johor Road Boon Kee Pork Porridge at Veerasamy Road stocks a wide variety that is perfect for any weather - but especially comforting for the rainy days we have been experiencing recently.

A must-order and their signature, please try their Pork Porridge ($2.50/$3) that comes with minced meat, innards, chopped onions, tangchye (preserved salted vegetable) and fragrant fried shallots. Thick, smooth and exceedingly satisfying, the homely bowl was surprisingly flavourful. And similarly, the other combinations such as Slice Fish and Cuttle Fish ($2.50/$3) was nicely balanced and cooked just about right with the fresh ingredients where in each spoonful you can still detect the creamy grains. Loving the simplicity and the warmth it brings! Oh and be sure to add an egg to enhance the full-bodied congee.

[Do expect a long wait at times in the afternoon, but well worth it!]



Johor Road Boon Kee Porridge - Pork & Liver Porridge (๐Ÿ’ตS$3.50) : Pork, Minced Meat, Liver topped with ginger, radish, spring onion, Fried Chinese Donut aka YouTiao & a raw egg (Top up extra S$0.50). ๐Ÿฒ
Porridge & Congee are only reserved for rainy or days when one is feeling under the weather. But this, this is comforting. As good as those you find in Hong Kong. ๐Ÿ˜‹
ACAMASTIPS๐Ÿ’ฎ: I cannot live without eggs, Honestly I don't know who can. It's the foundation of food, civilisation actually. ๐Ÿฅš
So I implore you to add the egg, burst the yolk & let its richness flow all over. Gosh the experience of it is so arousing. ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป


I don't think I've ever waited more than 15 mins for congee, and this just broke the record and doubled it at that. It was 1pm on that fateful day.

The portion is generous for its price ($4.50 for the pork+fish+egg+century egg option) and the pork slices and pork liver were expertly cooked to tenderness and creaminess respectively. Spring onion, fragrant fried shallots, and savoury tung choy (preserved vegetables) were also thrown in for added oomph. Worth trying if you're in the area, but do head down earlier to beat the lunch crowd. Closes at 3pm.

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ Thick, flavourful porridge base with very generous portions of pork & fish ๐Ÿ˜ฑโ˜บ $3.50 with added pork liver & egg! #happinessinabowl #hawkerpedia #burpple #8dayseat #eatoutsg

My order of Pork + Fish ($3.50) comes with pork meat, liver and an egg! So so good! I never had such good porridge before!! Stir in the raw egg vigorously for a smooth velvety finish, along with some crunchy Cai Por, fried onion and spring onion.
Really good stuff!


This is a must-have every time we're lunching at Veerasamy (other than the fried chicken, of course) rain or shine. Every spoonful of this extra smooth porridge comes with different surprise bits of ginger, preserved radish (chye poh), spring onion, fried shallots as well as slices of pork, minced meat, liver and stomach. Absolutely worth the wait! Top-up $0.50 if you wish to add an egg.
