Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge

Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge has been my childhood favourite and many times when I tried to visit them during my spare times these few years, I was always out of luck. Even though many years had passed since my last visit, I could still see that the stall is still run by the elders.

Over the years, one thing that has never change was the waiting time. They are still so popular and always with hidden queues. I waited about 20 minutes before getting my food but I remember I could wait up to 45 minutes during the peak hours. Having the bowl of soup while reminiscing my younger days was priceless. Fish broth was clear filled with fresh slices of fish with tomato wedges, Sze Chuan Vegetables and lettuce topped with fried shallots oil as well as coriander. Delighting flavours!

Fish Soup - $8

Not only that, it was nutritiously good in a healthier option.

Ingredients
Every time without fail, I will order their braised duck. Came in a plate of dark sauce, the gravy is especially good to pair with the bowl of white rice. The braised duck was still as good, keeping its traditional taste as it used to be. Duck meat was cut into bite size and meat was kind of tough over here. Usually, I would just opt for duck wings for tender bites. For those who prefer other parts of the duck, they have braised duck gizzard too.

Braised Duck - $3
Rice was abit overcooked I felt. Water content was more than the usual servings. Nevertheless, the braised gravy gave a good wrap up to the fragrant white rice.

White Rice - $0.50
I'm not sure, when will I ever have a chance to visit Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge again but they were always one of my best choices among the traditional tastes.
