Teochew Porridge - good for anytime of the day!

Teo Heng Teochew Porridge has been around for many years. Their home-made fish cake has always been one of their signature dishes. They were super soft yet springy. When dipped into the chilli sauce, blended with garlic and vinegar, superb!

They are also famous for their fishes. We chose the garoupa. The fresh fish were simply dunked into a pot of boiling stock with preserved mustard/salted vegetable soup, and then served with a ladle of the salted vegetable over the fish. The fish was tender, slightly sweet and salty, just simply good with plain porridge.

Overall a nice place for a porridge with everything made from scratch, and fresh, quality food.

I was seated near Tanglin Halt A1 carrot cake stall. I looked at their sign board and saw some award certifications. Then I observed people relentlessly coming in to place orders. I told myself maybe I should try since I loved fried carrot cake. So I bought a plate to try. The first bite, it tasted good but oops, egg shell... spitted it out and continued. The carrot cake was moist and soft, with a well balanced of chye poh (preserved radish), eggs and garlic. Slightly crispy and with charred bits. Not too bad after all.

We saw a new grilled chicken and satay stall, decided to order a few to try. It turned out not a bad choice. It was a bit crowded too, with person making orders, non stop. Personally I preferred the chicken satay compared to the mutton. The satay was not too burnt and the sauce was good.

Are you a congee lover?

I am particular about how a congee is been done. It has to be smooth and silky-creamy.

Saw a slightly long line @新记粥品 so I decided to join in the line. We ordered spring onion chicken and slice fishes with black sauce, all served in claypots. The congee was not too watery. It was thick and luxuriously creamy. It blended well when yo ate them together with the chicken or the fish. Delicious!

4. Chong Qing style spicy chicken 重庆辣子鸡. Again I usually don’t like spicy food, but this dish tasted really good. The deadly spicy look of this dish might scare non spicy lovers away, but you can be sure that it will not burn a hole in your mouth. It was not too oily and the small bite-size chicken meats were “crunchy”. I just wish that the chicken skin could be removed before cooking. Just me. Haha.

3. Chinese Sauerkraut & Pickled Pepper with Beef 老纭泡椒菜水煮. This dish cake with a choice of fish, beef or pork. The spicy and sour taste of the soup, I think the mix should be with fish. However the fish they used were dory, which I have stopped taking this fish for many years already. The beef meats used were to chewy. I believe this dish will taste better if they were to select a more lean beef meat.

Overall, a nice place to eat and enjoy some delicious food if you are looking for hot and spicy ones.

2. Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes 西红柿炒蛋. This was more or less a common dish and it was simple one that you could cook it at home. Over here, the tangy tomatoes, with a hint of sugar, flavorful sesame oil, shaoxing wine mixed with scrambled eggs, made this dish a delicious one that you can eat with plain white rice.

Went to #文庆新时代 for dinner with some friends. Ordered a few dishes. These were some of them which I would recommend to try if you happened to be there. (Order of the photos)

Dish 1: saliva chicken 口水鸡. This is a cold dish. I usually don’t take too much spicy food. But this cold dish is one of my favorites. It was literally “mouthwatering” with the Sichuan spices, smothered onto the chicken, with numbing rich spicy and sweet sauces. It was a savory dish. The spices used kind of “wake up” your taste buds and made you wanted to have more.

A friend brought me to this beef kway teow mee at Jln Besar, formerly from 结霜橋. Ordered the beef soup noodle. Love the taste of the broth, a well balance of sweetness and beefy-ness (if there is such a word. Haha). The sliced beef was nice and tender. They open from 10am to 6pm daily. Go and try out if you are around this hawker. There are many other good food as well.

Learned about #chuanjibakeryhainanesedelicacies from CNA 2 days ago, decided to give it a try, to #supportlocalfnbsg. The main dishes selection is simple (see the last photo). Since we don’t really take pork (which most people will order, since hainanese pork chop is suppose to be more popular), we left only the beef stew and the chicken chop.

1. Chicken Chop - hainanese style with a starchy, thick tomato sauce, with peas and onions, drenched on the chicken chop, that was coated with cream cracker crumbs, deep fried into golden brown batter. The meat was still juicy and tender.
2. Beef stew - it was served with chunks of beef, potatoes and carrots. It had a rich gamey flavor (which might not be acceptable by some people), and the starchy gravy was a bit blend for me. However the beef was soft and tore apart easily.

We also tried the flaky biscuit (which is not in the photo), with 13 ingredients inside, giving each bite, a unique taste. To me, it was a bit too sweet and “heavy” if one had to finish one whole biscuit. So it will be good to share it with friends, cut into quarters, I believe will be ideal.
