No dumplings, porridge lor



I was supposed to eat bak zhang last Saturday.

Supposed.

I set my alarm clock zun zun at 8am on a Saturday just to rush down to buy Ho Kee bak zhang. On a Saturday okay! But when I reached Amoy Street FC, I saw all the shops closed and all their wares messily stacked outside so I asked, "Uncle ah, jing tian mei you mai ah? (Today never sell is it?)". Then he told me, " Mei you ah! Jing tian spring cleaning!".

Spring cleaning?! I mean, which food centre does spring cleaning!!! Ahhh!!! Wasted my Saturday.

Okay lar, not quite. Because I took a chill pill, calm down, walked to Maxwell FC to have breakfast with a vengence! Ah ha!

I bought 2 muah chee, 2 kueh kosui, 1 min jiang kueh, 1 bowl of prawn dumplings, 1 bowl of braised beef noodles, 1 bowl of peanut soup w/ rice balls, 1 bowl of red bean brown rice soup, 1 bowl of tau suan, 1 bowl of century egg porridge and 1 plate of yu sheng (raw fish). Wah, breathless

Before you think that I'm a glutton, let me mention that most of the food were ta bao for my gf also (but I think I ate most of them).



Okay anyways, I've heard about Hoe Kee's century egg porridge and it's finally time to give it a try. Uhm, the porridge is tasty! Check. The porridge is sticky and pasty. Check! The porridge has loads of century eggs and pork. Check! And plus, the porridge is served in a large bowl for just $3 (or $3.50 if you add an egg). Oh yeah, they have condiments like fried onions, spring onions and chillis on the side so yeah, feel free to go crazy with them!



Generosity seems to be their speciality because check out this yu sheng. Oh mama, I've never seen so much fish in such a small plate of yu sheng before. And it's only going for $3. Seriously, the yu sheng is not bad. It's quite tasty and the amount of raw fish is just, Phoo!

I like Ho Kee Bak Chang too! My mum used to buy and we will steam it for next day breakfast (don't have to wake up early, yay!)
Porridge is satisfying for a breakfast too! I usually go for pork porridge (with egg). Century egg porridge, I usually save it in a dim-sum order :D

Besides the other guy Leslie's SG foodie blog, now I'm adding you to my list too. Those yummylicious photos ... Uurr, you guys are just torturing me ... it's painful to have to countdown day by day until I'm back IN SG for the great chow down!
Thanks to your comment in my blog, I managed to track you down. Thank you!

HELLO just like to say your blog is a curse to all homesick Singaporeans living overseas cos we are so damn deprived of all the good ol' hawker food you feature on your blog!

I wish I could dig into my screen and eat your posts up!

SIGH ): ): ):

Good job. This is not a 'slamming' post by the way. It's just a comment made by a deeply envious & jealous deprived-of-min-jiang-kueh girl!

Dude I just drove by the Ang Ku Kueh shop along Upper Thomson Rd (and they were open!) and gave the peanut, coconut and mung bean a shot (that's all they had left). Pretty damn good if I may say so myself! A pity I didn't have me camera with me so I can't blog about it. Haha funny to see so many Singapore-Aus, Aus-Singaporean peeps lamenting about the lack of decent chow Downunder. We're virtually almost a group by ourselves =)
