Chinatown Porridge

If you are looking for a light meal in Ayer Rajah Hawker Centre, Chinatown Porridge may be of a perfect choice to you. Specialised in porridge, they offer a range from chicken porridge to raw fish porridge.

As of now, this is the only stall in the hawker centre that sells raw fish porridge. Raw fish was placed separately from the bowl of hot plain porridge.

Raw Fish with Plain Porridge - $3
Another simple and plain meal available will be their cuttlefish porridge.

Cuttlefish Porridge - $3
Tasted a little bland but the amount of cuttlefish provided was still acceptable.

Cuts of Cuttlefish
If you still have stomach room for other food, you can try ordering some snacks like their Chee Cheong Fun and Yam cake. Instead of the brownish red sweet sauce, they are using the traditional black sweet sauce for these snacks added with some sesame seeds and oil to bring out the fragrance in the dish. Though oil was added, the snacks tend to stick together and was not as moist as expected.

Chee Cheong Fun
Personally I will prefer their yam cake to Chee Cheong Fun as they are soft and spongy. It comes in 3 size and cost $1, $1.50 and $2 respectively. It's a tad expensive when compared to its portion, however its still worth a try.
