Had a really simple lunch at Clementi Market & Food Centre, Blk 448 this afternoon.
No prizes for guessing what we had (It’s in the title! duh!). Hearsay this porridge stall is quite famous for their simple but good porridge, so decided to give it a try.
Their selection is very simple, either Pork, Chicken or Fish, and all costs $2.70 across the board, with an egg, it costs $3.00. And if you’re hungry for more, you can order the large version at $3.80.
At first glance, the porridge looks very simple and ordinary, like a homemade porridge, which is perhaps why it’s popular. The pork porridge we ordered had full of ingredients. Large chunk of pork liver, slices of lean pork meat, meatballs, preserved radish, egg, spring onions.
It does taste nice and traditional for this bowl of porridge, and doesn’t taste too salty, unless you put in a lot of the soya sauce of course. But I think I had better porridge before at Bugis Queen Street Hawker Centre before it renovated, but think the stall is nowhere to be found already.
Their generous chunk of pork liver and delicious meatball will delight you though, you can opt for no liver if you’re not a fan or pork organs. The meatball should have some cuttlefish inside to give it the extra oomph to the taste, which I loved. (=
If a bowl of porridge is not filling enough, you can always order other stuffs there, like the Satay Beehoon that we ordered, or Char Kway Teow, Satay, Fishball noodles, etc.
