During my poly days, I always went there for meal. The porridge stall is always long queue, no matter what timing. It heard it is 1 of the taxi driver’s favorite spot in channel u food variety show. The dishes were nice. Normally I will go for the tou kee with rice and other dishes etc. however, just felt like having porridge today; the porridge is pretty good with the dishes I ordered. It is a good night spot for supper definitely. It is opened 24 hrs. but Tuesday closed. The dishes are light yet filling. The whole coffee shop like opened the porridge stall has queue, the rest of the stalls look not as popular as themSpending: Approximately SGD 5

This stall has been my go-to with my family and I remember my dad ordering enough dishes to FULLY cover the surface of a LARGE table!! To today, it remains a place to come to for home-cooked goodness outside your home. The quality of their plain porridge is already a plus on its own. And the other 30 to 40 dishes are mostly cooked very very nicely. Spending: Approximately SGD 7(Lunch)
Had my dinner with my wife on 26/10/11. We been coming here almost everytime we passby here. Those looking for a light dinner, this is the place. We order 2 bowl plus 1 extra and 5 side dishes and cost us less than $10. Every time you pass by you will see long Q except for Tue is when they are closed. So not the day. Spending: Approximately SGD 7.50(Dinner)
Ye Shang Hai Teochew Porridge is one place where my family love to go to. Opened till the wee hours, one usually can spot a long queue for their cheap and nice porridge. With so many different variety of dishes to choose from, it\'s like eating a simple buffet. Usually we would request for a small bowl of the plain porridge soup. It\'s the place to go to whether it\'s raining (for the hot porridge soup) or sunny (no appetite, good to eat porridge).Spending: Approximately SGD 4.00(Dinner)
Read the previous review. Since my office is located at Bukit Merah, I decided to check the place out. Surprisingly, my colleague was aware of this "famous" Teochew porridge stall. And indeed it was, with the long queue of customers!

First glance at the dishes did not attract me. But it's the VARIETY which did!! Just as any mixed rice stall I frequent, I always enjoy choosing from a wide selection of dishes. The queue, though long, moves fast. So, I did not have to wait long for my turn. Since there were 3 of us, we selected the following 6 dishes:

Giant Pork Balls - This dish was very flavourful. Wonder if it's the fatty meat grinded in it which led to the outburst of flavour!

Tofu - Similarly delicious.

Vegetables (probably Cai Xin) - I'm poor at naming vegetables, being not a market dude. It was our only vegetable dish, so definitely much appreciated. However, I'd like to mention that servings are small over here. I saw how the guy, who scooped the vegetables onto the small plate, ensures that the vegetables scooped out are just enough to cover the dish area of the plate. Seriously, how much does vegetable cost anyway? They would score more points from me if they had been generous in this.

Curry Chicken - Great! Would be good for dipping roti prata too!

Fried Chicken Chop - Skin's a little chewy, hence don't really fancy this.

Chai Po Egg - This one is a little salty, but still ok.

Total, including 3 bowls of plain porridge - $14.70 (reasonable price)

The "operation" at the stall is rather interesting. 1 guy takes the order and scoops the dishes onto small plates and placed them on a nearby round table. My observation is that there is always 1 red plate among the other yellow ones for each customer. It might be a mark to distinguish the food between customers. "Waiters/waitresses" will serve the food to your table. What left me amazed is how did they know which dishes belonged to which customers. Were they observing me while I was ordering?! By the way, there is cashier counter at the stall but you do not pay there (though you can see $$$ there). So, is the guy there like a "money changer"?

The pork porridge tasted great with the sauce. The pork meat is fresh and tender, while the porridge is watery and easy to swallow. Porridge works best for people feeling unwell. The bowl of porridge costs $3.50, quite reasonable price for a bowl of porridge. It was easy to find seats at the stall, therefore no worries on looking for seats. The overall taste was great and I enjoyed my meal.
