Hearty Teochew Porridge Buffet Dinner at ParkRoyal on Kitchener Road

As a Teochew, porridge, aka Teochew mue (潮州糜), is the simplest form of comfort food that I would crave for any time any day, especially if it rains. Hence, when I heard that there is a Teochew Porridge Buffet Dinner, I said mai tui liao, let’s check it out!

As part of my eating more healthy resolution, I was happy to find a good selection of fruits available which included papaya and even chinese pear.

Beside steamed rice, plain porridge and sweet potato porridge, one can also find some stables such as fried bee hoon and yam rice. Do not mistaken Teochew porridge with Cantonese porridge as the former was more watery and with a more “solid” texture.

The cooking method of braising played a heavy emphasis as it is part of the characteristic of Teochew cuisine. Hence, on the buffet line you can see a great variety of traditionally braised dishes, from the innards to eggs, tau kwa, mushroom, pig trotter and even braised duck (which you must at least live live try a piece).

The condiments for the porridge were in abundance too. I like that there were even pork loin bak kwa, century eggs, salted duck eggs, fermented beancurd and even pork floss!
