As the name suggests, the restaurant specializes in porridge which comes with different flavours. It has been serving the dish since 1949. One of the best selling porridge is the sliced raw fish. The thinly-cut fish is served separately topped with cut spring onion and coriander. Then altogether, they are dipped and mixed with the hot porridge until the fish is almost cooked. The porridge that is cooked and simmered for long hours and the freshness of the fish make this type of porridge simply irresistible.
Chee Cheong fun, occasionally referred as CCF is also a popular dish served for the guests regularly. The soft and smooth rice flour rolls have sesame on top and when dipped in the sweeet sauce made in-house, it is a perfect breakfast meal for the locals.
