We came here for a round of supper despite having a really big seafood dinner earlier at Uncle Tan’s Kelong. I suppose that we were all started to feel the heavy aftermath of too much alcohol and wanted something simple and filling to fill our stomachs (again). Once the suggestion was made that we should go for some teochew porridge, everyone immediately concurred.
I suppose that was what we all needed. Simple clean rice porridge to wash away the impending hangovers or just to cleanse our palate. Thus, we found ourselves at Heng Long Teochew Porridge at 10pm at night.
Drunk question of the night: Is Tanjong Katong in Katong?
Despite the late hour, the coffeeshop was still pretty crowded. The 24 hour nasi lemak stall opposite us was equally crowded as well. Guess it’s true – Singaporeans have at least 4 – 5 meals a day.
As is the way to enjoy teochew porridge, we ordered various small dishes to eat with the porridge, such as salted vegetable (two types!), pork belly, squid, salted fish mince, pork mine, salted egg and omelette. As it is with teochew porridge, you can see the rice grains clearly. I’ve previously explained the difference between teochew porridge and cantonese porridge here.
I found the porridge to be really good. It was light, tasty and the consistency was really smooth. Heng Long has a huge variety of side dishes to choose from. Special mention goes to their salted vegetables which was done really really well and was one of my favourites.
