my OPS primary school classmate wanted to buy me porridge breakfast at commonwealth crescent food centre on 5.9.2016. ^^
he said the porridge stall was right next to it. it’s a stall i noticed too when i was there.
he ordered a fish belly porridge 鱼腩粥 for himself.
i decided on a pork mixed porridge (sliced pork, pork balls, liver).
the 2 porridge cost S$6.70. both were quite excellent! i tried my friend’s fish belly. they were good. maybe try next time la.
my own porridge very nice too, lots of ingredients & porridge very smooth & tasty though still some distance from the standard in hong kong street porridge daipaidong.
i bought a S$3 dumpling soup 水饺汤. it was still very good, firm, packed & tasty!. we shared a soup, 5 dumplings for S$3, i got 2 dumplings for myself.
soup felt less intense than yesterday. we had porridge this time so maybe the soup taste were masked.
my friend went to get lor ark, the 牛车水阿婆卤鸭 braised duck.
the colour did not look that great.
but duck was very good. the meat was tender & moist, and tasty. maybe not the most “pang” type, but ok tasty & quite fine texture.
thought it was a bit expnsive though S$13 for a quarter?? that’s almost same restaurants leh…
like imperial treasure teochew S$28 for 1/2duck (i have not been recently so don’t know price). there is no comparison at all though…imperial treasure’s was so good!
though if this is a quarter it seems quite a reasonable big helping.
