Ah Chiang's Porridge, Tiong Poh Road

I've heard about Ah Chiang's Porridge mentioned before and also had people asking me if I've tried it. I've never been much of a porridge person so it wasn't the thing I would do to hunt the place down. We happened to discover one of their branches (#01-3865 Tiong Poh Road, tel : +65 6557 0084) near where we were and we were looking for something not so heavy.....

That's the bowl with mixed offal with meat (猪什) and century egg. Offal consisted of intestines and liver. Not much ingredients for $7.50 which makes it a little pricey. Tasted okay.

Yu sheng (魚生) is not on menu anywhere on this island anymore. Politically correct speaking. At least not for the more traditional raw wolf herring type. Businesses have adapted. There's a kanpachi rendition around. Ah Chiang does theirs with fatty salmon. With the traditional toppings of sliced chilli, julienned ginger, chopped spring onions and then doused with some soy sauce and sesame oil. Single serving portions were kinda measly. But it was nice.

Some dough fritters to dip into the porridge. These were soft. Not even the slightest crisp. I prefer the soft ones with a light crisp like those they do at Old Street BKT.

We filled the vegetable quota for the evening with kailan (芥兰) stir fried with garlic. Nice crunch from the savoury leafy greens. This was pretty good.
