The porridge is pre-cooked with dark soy sauce and fried upon order where the original flavours are enhanced with umami and savoury flavours and wok hei. It is simply flavourful and comforting to have this especially on a rainy and cooling night.

The mixed organ porridge comes with generous servings of lean meat, small & big intestines, liver, tau kwa cubes then topped with fried shallots and spring onions.

The lean meat is very soft and tender while the braised big intestines are well cleaned with a flavourful and springy texture. If you are not a fan of innards, you can go for the sliced pork fried porridge instead 》$5

Smooth, thick and almost gooey congee with meatball and pork slices, topped with crispy you tiao, spring onions and white pepper. Both the meatball and pork slices are well seasoned and tender with a chewy bite. Not the best but still one of my favourite porridge stalls for a comforting late-night supper 》$4

This place serves Cantonese style porridge which meant it was cooked to an absolute smoothness without any signs of boiled rice grains. Our bowl of porridge came piping hot with a smooth texture. It was rather bland to our taste buds so we added some soy sauce and pepper to suit our taste. The raw fish (salmon) was thinly sliced with not much taste other than sesame oil. I was hoping that it could be a little spicier for some kick. The price is slightly on the high side considering their serving is smaller than other places that serve congee. Overall not too bad for cold, chilly weather over a warm, healthy and hearty meal.

Huang Hong Ji has been serving Cantonese congee since 1976 and they are now located in the heartland of Punggol with just a 10mins walk from Punggol MRT station. We decided to pay them a visit on a rainy morning for a hearty breakfast fix.

Minced pork with century eggs porridge 》$3.80

Came on a weekday for lunch at 1.30pm and there isn't any queue 😎 Without hesitation, I ordered the parrot fish belly congee after looking through all those raving reviews.

The congee is ultra fine and flavourful. It is recommended not to stir but to start scooping from top to bottom. The fish came with some wok-hei however I personally feel the flesh is slightly thick 》$11.80

Although their congee was good, it was too fine and thick (sticky) for my liking. I need some rice grains for the texture 》$10.30

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
