For many Chinese Singaporeans, Teochew rice porridge is one of the ultimate comfort home style meals to eat. And around Singapore at many of the hawker food court centres you’ll find stalls that specializes in rice porridge and side dishes. There can be a huge range of different dishes available, most of them either stir fried or braised, and all different types of meats and fish. Some of the dishes are on the plainer side while others are more spicy or more salty. One of the top recommendations for Teochew rice porridge that I received was Soon Soon Restaurant (near Kovan MRT), and so one day for lunch, my wife and I headed over there. Luckily we just barely beat the main lunch rush before it got too busy.
Although housed in a shophouse restaurant, Soon Soon is pretty much like a hawker stand. You go up to the front of the restaurant, where all the food sits on display, and you pick and choose whatever dishes you want to order. From there, you can choose if you want the rice porridge or just a plain plate of rice to go with all of your side dishes. Many people order for takeaway, but if there’s an available table, it’s a nice restaurant to hang out for a while and enjoy a delicious lunch. There were so many different dishes to choose from that it was a bit of a tough decision, but I finally arrived to the front of the line and chose chicken in a dark sauce with shreds of ginger, eggplant with chili and garlic, long beans fried with garlic, a steamed fish, and a piece of braised tofu.
The Teochew rice porridge was a little soupy and sticky at the same time. Unlike congee which is very mushy and sticky, this rice porridge remains more individual so you can feel all the grains of rice. In Thailand this style of rice soup, known as khao tom, is also very popular. All the side dishes were as delicious as they looked, simple and tasty. The dish I really like the most was the chicken stir fried with lots of sweet and spicy ginger, that was amazing. Soon Soon Restaurant is a wonderful place in Singapore to eat Teochew Rice Porridge.

Thank you very much for watching this video!
First dish was most definitely NOT chicken, it was frog's leg. Frog's Leg goes extremely well with porridge, especially the Teo Chew styled porridge. There are many frog's legs stall in Singapore that sell them with porridge on the side.
*It seems to me that the first dish you had is not chicken. Two signs makes me say that it would be frog meat; one being the little curve thin bone found in frog legs n the second is use of dried chilli plus shredded Ginger in thick sauce commonly used to stir fried frog legs but not chicken meat.*
*Mark did you ask before you ordered??*
*The fish n the frog meat explains why $24.*
Mark, you don't need the spoon when eating a meal such as this. The traditional way is to hold the bowl with the left hand, use the chopsticks to pick up the food to put in your mouth, and then bring the bowl to your mouth and use the chopsticks to push the rice porridge into your mouth. Also, the dishes that are eaten with Teochew porridge are meant to be eaten by a typical Chinese family on a daily basis, which means that they are known NOT to have strong flavour and taste. In fact, a Teochew porridge meal is known for its "plain taste". It is still tasty but definitely not the kind of strong, flavourful food that you would expect in a restaurant.
Wow! Just 36,000 subs till you reach 1 million Mark! :D BTW you are without a doubt my favorite YouTuber...your channel was one of the very first channels I subscribed to. Been a fan for almost 4 years. I am disabled and watching your videos is the next best thing to traveling the world and eating food from other countries. :)
The "chicken" is actually frog meat, I think. Usually ginger and dried chillies are added to cook this meat to mask its fishy smell and it tastes like "soft" chicken and smoother when you swallow. Chicken meat dishes usually comes in larger chunks. Reminds me of a story..... the maid: Sir, what size of meat portion do you prefer big piece or small. Cut it the same size as my mouth.
Sitting here have not yet eaten breakfast and I see yet another episode where Mark is living the life as a food critic and tasting what seems to be delicious chicken garlic with sauce. Dreading the time it will take to cook my own meal. I suppose thats why there is phone in takeout. Love your videos Mark and Ying. keep them coming.
hey mark, next time eating teo chew porridge add a couple more tasty additions like salted egg, steamed squids dipped with plum sauce and last but not least, in fact the creme de la creme dish is braised pig trotter and preseved radish(chai poh in chnese) fried with egg andthe braisingsauce of th pig trotter sprinkledwthwifawiff of pepper the porridge is wow! i beliee etereare also many teochew dialect pple in thailand too?
Hey Mark, eating rice porridge can also be a one-handed meal. Hold the bold with one hand, and eat with chopsticks by shuffing them into your mouth. My teochew grandfather used to eat rice or porridge that way and it looks so tasty whenever he ate it like that.
I just love how you described and reviewed your meals in every your video. The way you choose the words and interpret the taste into something that we could imagine is really awesome. I am very anticipating your facial expressions after tasting the first spoon. In my perception if it is really delicious you would tilt your hear to the right side. But if it is delicious you would just nod. It is very enjoyable watching your videos that I almost could taste the food as well 😊 keep up the spirit, Mark and Ying!
This is my favourite place to go to for teochew porridge. It's run by my friend's uncle! I usually add the gravy from the braised duck that they serve into the porridge, makes it a little less plain. Oh and you should've gotten the braised duck, it's the bomb and probably is the best dish there to go with porridge!
he's probably right handed so only natural to tilt to the right but who cares as long as the food is yummy coz if he tlts backwards he will fall off his chair andall the food goest
anyway why bothere wif such trivial matters the focus shud be on the food dummies!
i didn't know u are Chinese that grew up eat porridge just like me too when i was kid, hihih, that's all i eat, porridge n salt pickles, fermented tofu cubes n soy sauce due family was very poor especially me due they mistreated abandoned me now they say u r my relative, i should love b close to them due they r all old ugly n poor n broke n never enough help them, else they bully, bad mouth, gang up on me etc... these dishes are delicious too.
mark, that fried fish is called "new year fish " in spore, very common and widely consume by sporean, but in msia that kind of fish is hardly found.even part of the fish supplied are imported from msia.
Mark, I have watched nearly all of your vlogs. But it would be nice to know if there was anything that made you ill or sick. The food looks fantastic in all of your videos but there must have been something that made you ill.
Hey Mark it's Nicholas here, I recommend you to eat this dish called Lor Mee it is located at Old Airport Road. This dish specialise in their awesome sauce, oh yeah remember to put more garlic in this dish as you are a big fan of them and also add vinegar to have awesome sourness taste. The dish I believe it normally sells in the morning. Hope you like my recommendation and look forward your next food video cheer!!!😁👍🏻
Cute girls groups. This hot chick Monica was willing to bathe and get suntanned on this sunny summer day that’s why she invited three guys to make her a company on the river coast. Could she ever imagine that these frisky guys would want something more than just sitting and talking about nothing? Well, she very quickly found out that when the young boys see a charming chick in tiny bikini everything they can think about is hard fuck! They started pounding her in the river and then moved to a more comfortable place where all three in turns stuck their peckers in her wonderful mouth and then bent her over and diddled in pussy and ass without any mercy trying to reach the peek of pleasure and cover the skin with loads of semen.
Cute girls are made to be fucked)) And the cuter they are, the better and dirtier fuck session can be expected. HardFuckTales can offer you something really out of the ordinary – handsome beefy guys stuff their rock hard dicks in the deep wet mouths then pulsating pussies and tight asses of hot spoiled girls in public places which makes the action even more exciting. Not to be missed!
