7. 旺旺粥品 / Claypot Congee
A great alternative to Siang Yuan, porridge here is served in a claypot to retain the heat throughout the meal. It is a lot more watery than Siang Yuan’s (but still very tasty), perfect for people on a low-carb diet like yours truly 😀 It would still be bubbling hot for a long time though so do not order if you’re in a rush (or risk burning your tongue, like me on several occasions. You’ve been warned).
Wang Wang Claypot Congee (source)
I don’t know about you but I’m a sucker for anything claypot. Anything that is served in a claypot would naturally appeal to me because somehow, the burnt and perfectly cooked areas blend really well to produce a very fragrant smell. Likewise, I usually go for their Sliced Fish Porridge with an additional egg which hardens really fast under the boiling congee. The fish slices are a little rougher (Mom says that it’s a cheap kind of fish), but still acceptable.
