Ah Chiang Porridge is an old school Cantonese style porridge concept started in 1971. With its original store located at Tiong Poh Road in Tiong Bahru estate, Ah Chiang now ventures into the shopping mall, opening its newest outlet at the basement of JEM.
Mixed Pork Porridge 4.2/5
You Tiao 3/5
I decided to have the Mixed Pork Porridge with an Egg ($5.40). The hearty and comforting bowl of congee comes with slices of kidney and pork, garnished with spring onion. The silky smooth porridge is already lightly seasoned, hence, in my opinion, there is no need to add any more seasonings. I also ordered a bowl of You Tiao ($2) to go with the congee. However, the youtiao is the doughy type while I prefer the more crispy type.'
Salted Fish Bean Sprout 3.5/5
To complete the meal, there are several side dishes on the menu. I ordered the Salted Fish Bean Sprout ($5) and Ginger Chicken ($6). The bean sprouts were plump and crunchy while the ginger chicken was tender. However, I like the fact that the chicken is chilled. It is too cold to be enjoyed.
Ginger Chicken 2.8/5
Overall if you looking for something light and comforting, Ah Chiang's Porridge will be a good choice for a satisfying meal. However, do note that the place is quite small; hence it may be better to just takeaway to dine at the common dining area near the outlet.
