I loved this porridge! Every spoonful was filled with ingredients which gave the porridge so much more flavour. Definitely not ‘bland and sick people food’! The texture of the porridge was also to my liking as the rice grains still had a bite. One more plus point is that they use brown rice! This gave the porridge a more earthy flavour. It’s a bit pricey ($5 with staff discount for a regular portion) but it’s a once-in-awhile lunch treat ;)

The first of two porridge places I would buy from around Kent Ridge - I’ve always loved Empress Porridge but sadly today’s porridge at lunch time was dismal. I bought this at 1pm, when there was quite a long lunch queue. It’s very affordable for staff and students, as there’s a $0.80 discount, making the small bowl only $4. You can even top up for a bigger bowl, or for a set with sides, drinks and dessert.

I probably visited at the wrong time - they might’ve just put fresh rice into the porridge as the grains were still in whole pieces, and hadn’t softened into the thick, congee-like consistency that I love from Empress Porridge. Doesn’t mean I’ll stop buying from them, but I probably have to time my lunch pick up better.

This Claypot Chicken was SO SO GOOD!!! And very affordable 👍🏻 the sauce that they used was very delicious and they were not stingy with it so the white rice tasted very good. I love that they have a generous amount of vegetables as well ☺️ highly recommend eating if you’re around the area!

I used to despise eating porridge as a kid. It was tasteless, mushy, textureless, and basically just sick person food. I always doused my porridge in soy sauce in an attempt to make it more palatable to my younger self.

Now I know better, and have learnt to enjoy porridge for what it is. I don’t see it as sick people food any longer, and I do crave it from time to time. It’s a real treat especially on cold rainy days.

I had heard about Empress Porridge from one of my colleagues a few months ago but never got around to trying it. I think it took over the herbal tea shop at [email protected] Ridge. Finally decided to dapao it one day to try and I am so glad I did. Empress porridge serves their signature porridge stewed with dried compoy, cuttlefish, pork, peanuts, anchovies, and so much ho liao which makes for an amazingly flavourful and delicious porridge. The texture is more like congee, it’s thick and creamy, and just full of mouthfeel in every bite. It’s savoury enough that you don’t need to add in any extra soy sauce. There’s also fried dough fritters/you tiao topped on the porridge for an extra crunch which I always appreciate. Though the you tiao here are less fluffy and more solid/firm, they serve their purpose well and don’t become soggy that quickly even after being in contact with the porridge for more than 20 minutes.

I’m super happy that I’ve found a great porridge place, and even happier that it’s within walking distance from my office! Best part is that NUS/NUH staff and students get a discount, so be sure to show your staff/student card :)

I absolutely love this place! I am generally not a fan of porridge but I thoroughly enjoyed their signature porridge and will definitely come back for more!! The porridge is full of flavour, the rice grains were plump and juicy, and they are generous with their portions and ingredients. I can say the same for their consort beehoon. The prawn paste chicken is a must try as well! In addition, the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely an ideal place to visit during the lunch hour, or for a casual dinner (: Highly recommended!!
