Teochew porridge has become comfort food to me over the years. I used to hate it as a kid and would always ask for rice because of how tasteless the porridge was but nowadays I really love having a pure white bowl of Teochew porridge paired with an assortment of dishes. Joo Seng Teochew porridge is one of those great places you can patronise at almost anytime of the day (awesome supper place alert!), and have more than 30 dishes to choose from. You’re seriously spoiled for choice and it’s hard to make a decision!!!!

We went with the ladies fingers, chap chye, cai Poh egg, sweet and sour fried pomfret and a mix of taupok, tau kwa, intestines, 3-layered pork and braised egg. As always, they serve the warm dishes super quickly and with a bowl of gravy. Everything that we chose today was delicious, but what stood out the most was the pomfret. We ordered it upon recommendation by the lady taking our order and she vouched that it was good. Indeed it was!!! The fish is tender and easy to peel off the bone, while the skin is deep fried to provide a satisfying crunch when you bite into it. It’s also seasoned perfectly with a delicious sweet and sour sauce! Would order this again the next time we return!
