Tiong Bahru Wah Yuen Porridge 中峇鲁华园粥品 @ Telok Blangah Drive

Yesterday my review on Tiong Bahru Market’s Pork Porridge was simply just a word “ordinary” and that’s because it was! This stall has been selling porridge for as far as I can remember eating from them since I was pregnant with Valerie, in the late 80s.

I was in Telok Blangah Drive to try out a Chinese curry rice stall which I’d read from many reviews that it was fantastic (imho, the curry rice was ordinary – the hype was more of the young owners willing to give up banking/forex trading jobs to become hawkers) but the gem of my find in that food centre was actually the “lost and found” Tiong Bahru Wah Yuen Porridge!

This was from Wah Yuen. It was ordinary. The Lor Mee (noodle dish) I wanted had sold out so I settled for mixed pork porridge.

It seemed that after the patriarch of the famous Tiong Bahru Cantonese-style porridge 华园粥品 passed on, his younger son wanted to expand the family business. Raymond, the older brother, however, insisted on not compromising quality and taste thus went on to strike out on his own. Going through my photos and taste memory, I’m grateful Raymond did. For the lost in Tiong Bahru is found in Telok Blangah.

    I’ve never seen that kind of porridge. It looks like it would have a really interesting consistency.
