Xiang Ji Cooked Food – Popular Porridge Stall in Yuhua Village
Besides Clementi 448 Food Centre’s famous porridge stall, there is a hidden gem at Yuhua Village Market & Food Centre where you can get a comforting bowl of delicious porridge too . This stall only opens in the morning, and you’ve to be prepared to brave the queue. We arrived around 9.30am on a Saturday morning, and had to wait around 30 minutes before we were served.
The Sliced Fish Porridge ($2.50 / $3 with egg) consists of a generous amount of fresh fish. It is topped with you tiao, spring onions, shallots, coriander, and preserved vegetables. We liked the slight crisp of the shallots, which gave a little crunch to the otherwise “soft” porridge. Moreover, the porridge isn’t watery, nor too thick. The texture is just right, and you can feel and taste each softened rice grain. Don’t forget to complete this satisfying porridge with an egg!
The Century Egg Lean Meat Porridge ($3 / $3.50 with egg) fares better than the fish porridge, for me, as I dislike coriander. The smooth porridge has a creamy consistency and it is also not as greasy as the one at Clementi. The well-marinated lean meat, together with the century egg, makes this bowl very flavourful. You will find that the porridge is well worth its price tag ($3.50 with the addition of an egg).
Start your day on a lovely note with bowls of heartwarming porridge here. West-siders, the next time you need a porridge fix, you might want to pop by Xiang Ji.
