Ordered some braised duck, celery, lala and tau pok for our late night meal to go with porridge. We just couldn't resist their braised items like braised duck and tau pok as they are always rich in flavour and goes very well with porridge.

The braised duck was soft, tender and it is particularly good with their rich and fragrant braised sauce. I liked that the tau pok braised with a distinct herbal taste - simply tasty. We also love the fresh lala that comes with some spicy flavours to add some punch to our meal.

Price varies with the choices of dishes ordered. Our meal came up to $19.30 with three bowls of porridge.

A messy plate of rice coated generously with their special curry sauce. Their curry sauce is a mixture of four different sauces - chilli sauce, chilli oil, braised gravy, and curry. The curry gravy is smooth, thick and sticky with a mild spice level.

I got myself chap chye, tau pok, bean sprouts and fish cake. The chap chye was soft and well seasoned while the tau pok is soaked with braised sauce and coated with the curry sauce that makes it so good. The beansprouts together with cubes of tau kwa added more crunch and texture to my plate. The fish cake tasted very normal, not the bouncy type.

Ran out of places to eat late at night and decided to give this a try. They are located under a HDB block selling very affordable and good Teochew porridge till wee hours. We ordered 2 bowls of porridge with minced pork patty, bitter gourd, lala and peanut to feed two bellies and we were surprised at how cheap our total bill ($6) was. They also provide condiments like tau cheo (salted fermented soybeans), chilli and braised sauce. Not the best tasting Teochew porridge but I will still come back for the affordable price paid for such quality.

We arrived past 8pm and they were left with the last few plates of chicken breast meat. Even though I don't really order breast meat because they are usually tough and dry, I am glad that we proceed with our order. The meat was tender and juicy. The rice was equally good without being too oily and comes with a firm bite to each grain, packed with fragrance from the chicken stock and ginger 》$8

The ebiko prawn paste ball is very bouncy and springy with an extra crunchy texture from the prawn roe. The noodles are cooked al-dente with a firm texture and good bite. Other than that, I felt the taste and smell of mushroom overpower the herbal soup that was not distinct enough.

Served with prawn, scallop and squid in a sweet and creamy pumpkin broth. Although the soup looks thick and creamy, it was not as creamy and jelak as it seems.

The french bean looks dehydrated but it is still crunchy. It is not too oily and I feel the portion of minced meat could be more 》$12.80

Fresh and succulent prawns with fragrant and crunchy cereal. We couldn't help ourselves but to clean the cereal off the plate 》$17.80

The soup version consists of a mix of pork ribs, pork belly, tau pok, pig's tail, stomach and intestine in a herbal broth that is boiled using 10 different herbs and spices. Despite using so many herbs and spices, it has a light herbal taste with some sweetness in there 》$8.80/small

The dry version comes with a mix of pork cuts, pig's stomach, intestine, dried cuttlefish and dried chilli stir-fried in their thick and special dark soy sauce. It has a tinge of sweetness with a hint of spiciness from the dried chilli. The meat was tender and the sauce paired well with rice 》$8.80/small

The secret of this dish is in the frying technique where it requires the mastery of wok fire. This plate of chao ta bee hoon with slices of pork, shrimp, squid and egg is cooked to a slight crisp on the outside, moist and packed with savoury flavours on the inside. Delicious and satisfying although I wished there was more wok-hei in there 》$11/Medium

These fried pork belly are totally worth the calories. The proportion of fats to lean meat complemented one another. It is fragrant, crispy, moist, not too oily and the taste of fermented bean was not overwhelming. The portion served was generous with the price paid 》$10/Small

A nice combination of kang kong and okra with a change in texture. It was crunchy, flavourful, not too spicy, and goes well with or without rice. Overall, they are very generous with the portion served at San Low Restaurant for the price paid 》$10/Small

Eating is my workout
