From the Burpple community

The best time to come is on a weekday morning. I arrived just slightly before eight and there were plenty of empty tables around.
.
There are different combinations of pork, chicken, sliced fish and cuttlefish with a basic bowl (no egg) starting at $3.50.
.
I ordered the pork porridge and added-on both an egg and century egg for $4.50. After making payment, I was given a slip of paper with a number on it. I sat at a nearby table and waited for the corresponding number to flash on the digital screen to pick up my order.
.
The number I got was 19 while the number on the screen is 16. It took about five minutes for my order to be ready.
.
My bowl of porridge came topped with youtiao, spring onion, and fried shallots. Other than the egg and century egg, I discovered pork slices, pig's liver and even two precious slices of pig's stomach below.
.
Being a typical bowl of Hainanese porridge, the grainy texture is thus not as smooth as Cantonese porridge but the richness of the egg yolk gave it some creaminess.
.
Taste wise, the porridge is well-seasoned without the need for more seasonings. I even tasted tung choi (preserved vegetable) in it. Light soya sauce and pepper are provided in squeeze bottles but I did not touch them.

I decided to give Johor Road Boon Kee Pork Porridge a try as Mui Siong Bak Chor Mee is closed when I went down on Sat (😩) and I can’t decide what is more surprising: 1) having to wait 1 hour plus for the porridge, or 2) how gooood it actually is😍!

I ordered Mixed Pork Porridge with Century Egg ($4.50) which comes with sliced pork, meat ball, pork liver, pork stomach and century egg. Although this is not the super fine kind of porridge, it is still very smooth, fragrant and flavourful.

The pork liver is slightly pink and crunchy, and the handmade meat ball is well seasoned. Each component is well-executed and there is no porky aftertaste. My only grouse is that the youtiao is quite soggy - wish there is more crisp to it.

I tried this without any expectations and I must say that I’m pretty impressed - glad the long wait paid off!

I heard these folks were good, but didn't expect so good. Yes the porridge and the pork were fine, but their trick really is an old one - they whack flavours, in the form of lard, garlic, spring onion, tung choy and a raw egg. And humans can't resist these.

What you can expect is Hainanese style of porridge, which is of a thicker and grainier texture than Cantonese style which is cooked till very smooth.

Rest assured this is a nourishing, filling, belly-warming bowl, and you would find the texture much-thicker than the usual ones.

The grains are still slightly distinguishable, but yet it is overly still smooth.

Had #porkporridge on a rainy day lunchtime today with my colleague. This has been on my food radar for sometime. Happy with it. $3 per bowl and has generous portion of ingredients. First time trying so didnt know to upsize is just $0.50 for Big. 🤦🏻‍♀️ So we chose small. This is at 638 Veerasamy Road. Its near Jalan Besar Mrt Exit B.

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.
