Piao Ji Fish Porridge (Amoy Street Food Centre)
Sunday morning, we came to Amoy Street Food Centre for brunch. I queued 15 mins for Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee, photographed, tweeted, instagramed and ate the whole bowl of Lor Mee. But the poor boy was still queuing for Piao Ji Fish Porridge.
He took a photograph to show me how far away was he from the stall. I consoled him and said he could get his food in 15mins. The queue was as long as a snake, but I thought it would be as fast as my queue. But I was wrong. He queued for 45 mins!
Since he queued for so long, might as well order the most expensive soup, which was pomfret with fresh prawns soup ($12). The soup was not to our expectations and there were too much fried shallot oil in the soup. But we liked the pomfret fish, it tasted so much better than the usual batang (mackerel) fish soup.
Unlike the red chilli that we used to dip together with the usual fish soup, Piao Ji’s chilli sauce was unique. There were salted beans with chilli padi and pickled ginger, it went well with the fish soup.
Overall, I think Piao Ji does use quality ingredients. Each bowl of soup was cooked individually, hence it was took a longer time to cook. But the prices were still too steep for my liking. Normal fish soup costs $7 or $10 with prawns. If you want an additional chilli sauce, you have to pay an additional 50 cents.
