Reviews at Joo Seng Teochew Porridge

Reviews of good food at Joo Seng Teochew Porridge

Teochew porridge is just perfect for the days when Iโ€™m craving some home-cooked Chinese flavours. Been overseas for the past one week so Iโ€™ve been missing food like this. My favourites here are the Otah, Fried Egg and Chap Chye (not pictured here). Iโ€™m personally not a fan of duck but try out the Braised Duck too, thatโ€™s good here too!

The recent rainy weather has made me crave for some warm, comforting Teochew porridge. Have heard some positive things about Joo Seng but it was a bit lacklustre to me, tbh. It's a place to go to when you want some warm, comforting porridge but I wouldn't go out of the way to have it. Although it must be said that the variety here is quite huge and prices are pretty reasonable.

That said, i like to have plenty of vegetables and at least a fish while having Teochew mui, what are some of your must-orders when you have porridge? โ—กฬˆ .

Been craving some authentic Teochew mueh for quite some time! It's a shame that they don't have the Dou Ki in the brown gravy. Never really liked Pig's intestines but theirs were really good. Cleaned and cooked well.

Comfort food with many selections at an affordable price. Worth it!

A stone's throw away from the G7 Sin Ma Frog Porridge outlet along Cheong Chin Nam Road, this no-frills Teochew porridge stall is where our Tastemakers head to for a homey, comforting meal. Prices are affordable, there's a wide variety of dishes to order from and the food is satisfying โ€” great for supper gatherings with your friends. Our Tastemakers like how extensive the menu is, so they can always try something new every time. Of all the dishes, Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang loves the tender, fall-off-the-bone braised Duck Leg ($6), while Tastemaker Justin Teo likes the Black Bean Minced Meat ($2) that has just a hint of spiciness. If available, go for Tastemaker Ni Eats's favourite dish โ€” a whole Steamed Fish that is oh-so-fresh!
Avg Price: $10 per person

I haven't had that many Teochew porridge around to compare but Joo Seng's an easy choice to make when deciding a place for supper near home, especially when there's always a huge range of attractive sides on display. I've been trying a few different ones each time I'm here and they have always been satisfying! A constant for me would definitely be their braised duck, braised so thoroughly and decently tender, shiok! Their opening hours from 10am to 4am also makes it a crowd favorite for breakfast. #BurppleSGLateNight

Simple comforting food. This teochew porridge at cheong chin nam has a huge variety of side dishes for your morning brunch or even supper cravings. They are opened daily from 10am-4am. ๐Ÿด
Their dishes are all quite tasty ( at least I haven't chosen any bad ones before). We especially liked their braised tau pok and steamed fish. ๐Ÿคค

This is the same 4 dishes that we always order - black bean minced meat [$2] that has a tinge of spiciness; cabbages [$1.50] which are cooked till mushy; bittergourd with eggs [$1.50] cooked till soft and no longer bitter; and duck leg [$6] that's braised till the flesh is falling off the bones. The rice of the porridge [$0.50] is grainy and milky, soaked till plump, exactly how we like it.

haven't had this in too long... got so excited I forgot to include the porridge in the picture haha oops (and also I didn't want to make them wait too long...) ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜โœŒ๐Ÿผ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ #foodpics #sgfood #teochewporridge #burpple


Fishes are so fresh and sweet. Anchovies are my fav! There's this savory sauce on it but still very crisp. #tbt just happen I am finally free a while to look back at my pics... ._. #sgfood #burpple #downtownline

Simple traditional Teochew dishes just hit home, could almost imagine how my mum's family of 12 would have these standard fare everyday since they came from a traditional Chinese family as she reminisced while digging in. Steamed fish, salted egg, braised vegetables, the teo chew dishes here are unpretentious and homely. They also remind me of how fortunate I am in this age to be spoilt of food choices compared to Chinese Singaporean families back in the 90s who only had these basic dishes(with even fish being a luxury) as staples.#foodforthought


The crowd is still endless at 10.30pm but thankfully, I got a table after placing orders. The dishes were hits and misses and my favorites were the braised fried beacurd and crispy mini white bait. A good thing was that the meal came out to $14 for 2 considering the portion was not small.


am always more for the porridge water than the "liao". who's with me? kee chiu!


Both of us are typical teochew person so we decided to eat Teochew Porridge. Recommended by @sethluicious so i decided to venture out of East Area. Decided to head to Bukit Timah Area. Located at Cheong Chin Nam Road There are lots stretch of stretch area selling food. Knowing there is a teochew porridge there we decided to go there dinner. When i reach there there are many dishes to eat the plain porridge. Look like their recommended is their braised duck, fishes ,
Bak Ngee aka known as steamed fish cake & their hei bee hiam. The duck meat i can say that is braised until the meat is tender. The Steam Fish Cake the owner really handmade himself & the fish cake have to laid under sun to make it dry before steaming it. Fyi The Teochew porridge open frm Morning till the next day wee hours of the night. Look like it is recommended for people for who usually hang out5 night often life & best for supper too.

The best thing to have after a crazy workout is warm plain porridge with a large array of side dishes! This is shared among 12 of us & amounts to about $7 per pax including drinks! Definitely worth it!!
