When The Straits Time reported four customers that was upset with their “pricy” bill at Heng Long Teochew Porridge, vent their anger through flipping the table they were dining and wrecked the place with chairs, smashing glass panels at the food display counter during the early hour and rendered the stall to shut for a cleanup. However, the episode never deterred us to visit the place at night and fortunately business was back to norm.

We ordered the cabbage, braised bean curd skin or tau kee, salted egg, hei-bee haim or fried minced dried shrimp with chili, fishcake and stingray with two bowls of porridge for $18. The price is at the high side for Teochew porridge but at least we don’t flip the table and smashed the glass panel.

The bowl of plain porridge was cooked with good quality rice grain though the texture could be made softer for a more pleasing bite.

Of course, the Teochew porridge here has evolved as well, in fact, the originality and authenticity of a traditional Teochew porridge and dishes have slowly diminishing, many of the dishes on display here are definitely not the mainstream of the Teochew cuisine, it is seemingly the line of traditional and evolution has becoming more vague and nebulous, a reality we have to accept to suit the changing need and for the survival.
