Soon Lee Porridge @ Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre
Little would I expected this little stall at Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre which sells only 3 types of porridge would be so crowded with an average time of about 15 minutes. Soon Lee Porridge located at the back of the food centre sells only Pork, Fish and Chicken porridge.
A bowl of the porridge costs $2.70 without egg and $3 with egg. I think the price is pretty reasonable considering it comes with youtiao and some preserved vegetables. I even discovered pork lard in my bowl of Pork Porridge lifting the flavour. The porridge has been seasoned so there is really not necessary for any other sauces except maybe a little bit of pepper.
The other thing I like about the porridge is the texture. While it is smooth, it still retains a bit of the grainy bite. On top of that, the minced pork is rolled into a ball shape which gave it that extra bite.
Overall Soon Lee has been one of my favourite place for a bowl of comforting and flavourful porridge which is also very affordable.
