3. Siang Yuan (香袁) Porridge
Siang Yuan started out as a coffee shop (now a Muslim coffeeshop) in the late nineties behind what is now known as The Madeira Condominium (was previously an empty field). It used to serve the same porridge in the day and tze charin the night until they decided to scale down their business. I’ve been their loyal patron ever since they started their porridge business and I can vouch that the standard remains good over the years.
Their fish porridge is my breakfast staple (on days I don’t feel like eating a lot). The serving is a little small as compared to others you know but it’s really good. The thick porridge comes topped with crispy silver fish, chopped scallion and fried cut you tiao, making the dish extremely fragrant and flavourful. I would always order my fish porridge with egg, which is just an additional of 30 cents.
