Used to be located at Albert Street, the stall is operated by an elderly couple. Try conversing with them in Teochew and they will gladly throw in a bit more ingredients for you. This is one of those stalls in the food centre where a queue snakes to the next stall – surely a sign of good food! What I like about the stall is that you can request to have bitter gourd added to your porridge and also a choice of Batang fish or Pomfret to choose from.
What’s more, you can also request to have the Fish Roe added for kicks for not more than $5 a serving. Generous amount of Bitter Gourd simply make up for the gain in cholesterol from the fish roe. A pity is that the fish roe was not deep-fried before serving – that would simply make it more sinful but surely heavenly!
The soup is clear and flavoursome, definitely an indication that the stock was brew for many hours. However while the quality is good, some may find the wait too long. Likewise I was slightly disappointed that the Pomfret was not as fresh as the Batang. Nevertheless, a meal I was very much satisfied.
