Prince Taiwan Porridge @ Cheong Chin Nam Road

This was our family dinner on Sunday night. The nights are cool these days and it's nice to have porridge. I think there are many people who seems to be craving porridge these days too. (You know who you are. )

We went to Prince Taiwan Porridge. There's two porridge places along this road.

We noticed something though. People seem to shift their liking. Some weeks you see everyone goes to the Hokkien place, and the Cantonese one is quiet. On other weeks, the Cantonese ones are packed and only a few people at the Hokkien place. We wonder why?

But as a Hokkien, we always seem to like this Hokkien porridge more. Cantonese porridge has dishes that are too 'cold' for us. :-p

As usual, we always order the same old stuff. Dont know why, but we just expect the person ordering to order it. LOL

Chicken in wine sauce on a mini wok.



The kangkong with garlic.



The Mei Cai Kou Rou.



This was something new on the menu I think. These crispy fish are yummy. The next time we come here, we might order it again.



The without fail dish, Chai Por Nerng.



I love the sze chuan veg and thinly sliced pork.



The minced pork with aubergine.



We all ate the dishes with sweet potato porridge. The porridge warms our heart.
Oh, there's free flow of rice and porridge if you are a 'rice bin'.

Food's not super spectacular, but it's just comfort food nearby for us.

Are you talking about me hur? :)

What do you mean Cantonese and Hokkien? Isn't it Taiwanese vs Teochew? I quite like the Teochew porridge at the other side.
