back to the porridge
it is AMAZING
i always thought that porridge is porridge, how amazing it could be? FYI i am not a great fan of rice. Rice is rice, nothing special. So do the porridge. Porridge is ONLY a watery version of rice right?
no. I am wrong.
i think it is due to the chicken stock, maybe they use the super good quality kampung chicken or whatever their secret is, but yeah the porridge tastes good. You can taste the heavenly savory taste of the chicken stock in the porridge.
the additional side dish tastes good but the one i totally recommended is the TOFU
the tofu is soooo gooood! The texture is firm but soft in your tongue. The sweet soy sauce marinated and seeped into the tofu. For me, the best dish in the night is the tofu. I DO love tofu LOL
in conclusion, i do totally recommended this porridge restaurant. Taste very good and the price is so-so. Please remember the opening hour are from 10.30-14.30 and 17.00-00.30.
secret tips, you can ask for extra raw egg for the porridge, extra cholesterol and protein for your body will make your porridge taste even better!
