Ye Shanghai (夜上海) pocket friendly Teochew Mui

Ye Shanghai, a favourite hotspot for taxi drivers as well as my place for affordable and comfortable Teochew Mui whenever I'm in that vincity. Their porridge is well-liked by young and old, just look at the queue. But dont worry, the team of helpers at Ye Shanghai was rather efficient in their operations.



Kong Bao or Kung Po dish was good. The dish had adequate amount of spiciness with diced chicken stirred fried in peanuts, vegetables, and chili peppers. With the sweet gravy mixed well in the porridge, it can also be a good substitute to the braised sauce provided.

Kung Po Chicken
The texture of Tau Ki (Dried Beancurd Skin) was not too soft and not too oily. Additional bowl of braised gravy was given upon request for our porridge.

A side dish that we cannot go without with a bowl of Teochew porridge. It was soft with the "Poi Poi" (bouncy) bites as we sank our teeth in.

Fishcake
The meat balls or what we usually call the "lion-head". This cluster of meat ball together with its sauce tastes great and is always on my order list.

"Lion Head"

Tau Gua was bigger than expected. It was cut into 4 equal portions and becareful during consumption as it might be steaming hot.

Total Spending: $9.60 for 3 porridge and 5 side dishes.
Dinner Time
All in all, Ye Shanghai serves a value for money dinner especially when we talked about Teochew Mui. Their competitor in the same vicinity whom sell the similar items may cost twice as much. Therefore, they are always my first choice for budget meal.
