Porridge Buffet Lunch

After soups, I bet porridge is also one of those comforting foods for many. Warm liquid rice sure settles better in the tummy than steamed rice.


The lunch buffet ($9.80 nett on weekdays, $12.80 nett on weekends & public holidays) spread here offers a good variety of food. The above was just a portion of what was available. There was much more but I was really hungry. Classic porridge condiments like salted duck egg, fermented beancurd, braised peanuts, preserved vegetables and pork floss were a plenty. Other dishes included stir-fried chicken with bell peppers, seafood stir-fry, char siew, roast chicken, lup cheong omelette, steamed egg, fried fish, stewed pork belly etc etc.

While most dishes were just alright ( but the hae chor was horrible!), the roast chicken stood out. Tender and just flavoured with soy sauce and a bit of salt.


I also enjoyed the fried fish. Though it would have been better if pipping hot, there's still something about eating fried fish using one's fingers. Slap on some kick-ass balachan and it would have been like grandma's.


And there's also kway chap. I requested to do without the innards so fret not innards fans. They are available. The sheets of flour had a good bite and the accompanying liquid was tasty.


For desserts, there were a selection of cut fruits, some kueh, cakes, bobo cha cha and tau suan. Both the bobo cha cha and tau suan were not too sweet and quite enjoyable.
