Redhill Pork Porridge @ Redhill Food Centre - Chef Cao Yong & Misstamchiak Opens Hawker Stall Selling Hainanese Pork Porridge


Finally, the shutter of Redhill Pork Porridge at Redhill Food Centre is drawn up again but with new owners. The previous owner, Mr Han has retired, and new owners have taken over the stall. The new owners are non-other than Chef Cao Yong, Maureen Ow (aka Misstamchiak) and Chef Kenny.


Why pork porridge? I understand from Misstamchiak that her family used to sell Hainanese pork porridge, and she helped at the stall on weekends. So when she learned about Mr Han's retirement plan, it was like a higher calling for her to start a new venture close to her heart.


Together with Chef Cao Yong and Chef Kenny, they took over the stall. While they retained Mr Han's recipe, they incorporated better quality ingredients into the bowl of porridge, such as the handmade mushroom meatball and thick-cut pig's liver.


Their bowl of Hainanese Pork Porridge ($3.50/ $4.50) comes with tender pork slices, thickly-cut pig's livers, handmade meatballs and crisp deep-fried youtiao. You can add an egg for additional fifty cents. The porridge is thick and smooth, where you still get the grain's texture. The highlight for me is the soft and bouncy, thick-cut pig's liver, a texture that you probably will not expect or have eaten before. I understand this is from the famous noodle stall known for its pig's liver. No wonder it is so good.


Currently, the stall only opens from 6am to around 9am or till sold out, selling about 250 bowls each day. Why the short hour? Actually, the previous owner also operates for about 3 hours each day only. The new owners are considering extending the opening hours, but they would prefer to take one step at a time to smooth out the operations. Staffing probably is another consideration if they plan to extend the opening hours.
