I got this from the branch at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. The rice rolls are slightly springy and have a nice bounce when you bite into them. There was sufficient sweet sauce but not too much. There's self service spring onions and I sprinkled plenty on top of my bowl.

Conveniently located just outside of Kent Ridge MRT station, this small eatery serves authentic and healthy teochew porridge that contains many ingredients such as dried seafood, peanuts, youtiao(fried dough fritters), and uses a mix of brown and red(?) rice. Every table has bottles of soy sauce, fish sauce, and pepper for customers to further customise their porridge experience.

Pictured is the value set ($8.50) which includes the signature Empress Porridge, Prawn Paste Chicken (there are other options for sides), and an Iced Kopi. Taste wise, the coffee was lacklustre but the rest were savoury and up to standard.

The small premises mean that it is hard to get a seat during peak hours, so consider ordering take-out if you are heading there around weekday lunch hours. NUS/NUH students/staff can present their pass for a discount.

First time trying this dish. I was initially impressed that Empress Porridge uses brown rice by default, but I quickly realised that this supposed claypot chicken rice was more like sesame chicken over rice. The rice isn’t stewed in enough sauce, and I doubt it’s actually cooked in a claypot. Maybe the chicken is, but everything else probably isn’t.

I did enjoy the vegetables because they were well seasoned and crisp, but they were a tad too oily. Overall I wouldn’t order this again, as I’d rather go for their signature porridge or the pork trotter bee hoon.

Actually pretty expensive side dish for the portion as well as for the location as a near-campus eatery. Nonetheless, I still order this from time to time because it’s tasty! Not such a fan of the chilli they provide here, so we added our own sambal from the pantry.

Empress Porridge is very generous with the amount of chye poh toppings. It seems like each component is fried separately - the carrot cake, the eggs and the chye poh as they aren’t mixed together but end up in layers. The star of this dish is the fried egg, which is just salty enough, with a little bit of sweetness while retaining its fluffiness. The chye poh does tend to be salty on its own, so it goes very well with the slightly bland carrot cake. Well actually I think I order this primarily for the egg, the chye poh is just a bonus. If they had a pure fried egg omelette dish, that would be heavenly. Till then, I’m still satisfied with the carrot cake although the price point could be lowered for affordability!
