Porridge@Taman Bahagia LRT

Maybe I didnt look hard enough or whatever, but I dont think this stall has a name....
Bollywood Queen was not well recently, bad cough and all.. So I told her to choose a place for dinner and she decided to have porridge, this one in particular, as she patronizes it very frequently when she was staying near here a few years back. I realised this was the same porridge stall my friend told me few years back, recommending me to try. But I never did....
There were a row of stalls there (the road is closed and converted to open air mamak/food area) and plenty of food to choose frm, ranging from rotis to chinese fried noodles and mee mamak. As BQ said that the porridge is yumz there, I decided to have the same too. The stall serves a few types of porridge, ie, special, chicken, fish, salted fish+ fish..etc. We both ordered Special although I dont know what it contains and Bollywood Queen didnt wanna tell me :(
Imagine my surprise when I see this bowl of porridge :) Pretty ya? It was like a small bowl of Teochew style porridge, with all the 'dishes' served daintily on the porridge. There were fried anchovies, peanuts, century eggs+ginger, fried vermicelli and spring onions. After mixing all these good stuff with the porridge, I took a large spoonful...Holy sh*t, was freaking hot! That'll teach this glutton a lesson :(
Nonetheless, with my burnt tongue and all, I thought the porridge tasted fabulous. The porridge texture was smooth and velvety, and the porridge was not plain porridge, instead, it had fish slices, cuttlefish slices and choy poh in it. The crunchiness of the peanuts, anchovies and vermicelli added in another layer of texture to the porridge. And the century egg that is springy, but it's yolk creamy, complemented the porridge further. Very simple, nothing fanciful but this porridge definitely satisfy the soul..:)
What Julianne thinks?
Nostalgic, homely and delicious
This stall is located very near Taman Bahagia LRT station. From the station (LRT station is on your left), drive straight and turn right at traffic light. Take the first turning on your left after that. The stalls are on the closed road on your left. Between Foo Tian Hawker Centre and Master Tyre Shop.

There's another porridge stall at Foo Tian Hawker itself. That's run by this stall owner's son. At times, when he is too busy, his son will cook for the extra porridge orders. I dont find it as good as his father's stall though..
