Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge – Quality Fish Soup & Braised Duck
Geylang East Centre Market & Food Corner at Blk 117 Aljunied Ave 2 is a food centre I haven’t really explored. I came here for Guan Kee Wanton Mee for breakfast once, and this time round, I am back for dinner. It seems to be a popular spot amongst taxi drivers because of the ample parking space right beside it.
Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge (黃顺记鱼糜.鸭糜) is run by an old couple, and the stall has been around since 1958. During peak hours, be prepared to wait for at least 30 minutes. The uncle is the only one cooking, hence you got to be patient. Trust me, it is worth the wait.
We ordered a bowl of mackerel fish soup that comes filled with fresh and succulent mackerel. Each piece of premium horse mackerel is thick and soft. Fish bones are simmered in the soup for hours so you can imagine just how tasty the soup is. Each bowl has preserved Szechuan vegetable, salted mustard, ginger and tomatoes. You just can’t stop at one sip.
Surprisingly, the stall also serves braised duck to pair with the fish soup. Chopped into small chunks, the duck is braised in very flavourful soy sauce. Every piece is fragrant and tender. Order a bowl of white rice and ladle some gravy over it. On Wednesdays, they have braised duck tongue as well.
If you are a true blue Teochew, I am sure you’ll love Ng Soon Kee’s fish soup. Head there soon before the old couple retires!
