Ye Shanghai Teochew Porridge @ Bukit Merah View

Ye Shanghai Teochew Porridge (夜上海潮洲粥) is a hotspot highly favoured by cabbies - it turns out to be a bustling teochew stall that almost never sleeps. With opening hours from 1030am - 530am, it is wonder that they did not consider a 24 hour operational model.

Crowds are almost never stopping and queues forever snaking. All for the teochew porridge which is both cheap and good. My main grouse with teochew porridge is the ridiculous pricing scheme that adds up to a hefty sum to pay just for porridge and a few small plates. At Ye Shanghai, there is none of this - pocketfriendly could be the way to go. 

No price tags to speak off, just how many pax and point your way through. The bill is calculated at another station, with an animated uncle who does arithmetic in the air - amazing.

With each dish priced at $2-3, our bill came up to $40 for 4. Very reasonable I say! Now do you think they open for reunion dinner too?
