New Day Porridge 新園清香粥

New Day Porridge 新園清香粥 is a place where you can have Teow Chew porridge, and economy rice or even ‘chu char’ (煮炒). The shop is located in Lorong Selamat, it’s one of the off road of Macalister Road.

Along this street – Lorong Selamat, you can find lots of good food here. The famous and expensive Char Koay Teow is also selling down here. Well, this time, am not going to share anything about Char Koay Teow but Teow Chew Porridge.

Teow Chew porridge unlike Cantonese porridge where it takes longer hour to cook, and further more, Teow Chew porridge is like those cooked rice that boiled in a water for a short while. The texture is more of like cooked rice soak in a soup, Cantonese porridge is more liquidity.

Anyway, Teow Chew porridge must have it together with some light dishes like Salted Egg, Fried Fish and so on.
What we have down here is their famous, Dark Soya Sauce Pork Meat. I don’t know why their Dark Soya Sauce Pork Meat (aka Hokkien called it “Tou Yiu Bak” 豆油肉/豉油肉) is so sticky, perhaps they added honey or malt (麥芽). I actually quite like this.
Another dish that accomplish to this porridge is, Dried Radish Fried Egg (Hokkien called it “Chai Por” Egg 蘿蔔乾). Of course, never miss Salted Egg (鹹鴨蛋).
Hubby likes Fermented Beans Steam Fish (豆豉蒸魚); down here, they deep fried the fish first then after steam with these fermented beans.
Another hubby’s favourite is Dark Soya Sauce Stir Fried with Roasted Pork with Chili Padi.

With these dishes, both of us could have 2 bowls of this porridge. Hmmm… yummy yummy!!

We used to patronise this shop and another one in Rangoon Road which has shifted. Both sells the same type of dishes.
My sons love their famous Dark Sauce Pork Meat which they name it as Ore Bak..
